Feb 18, 2015 (Nyamilepedia) — The leadership of SPLM/SPLA in Opposition urges their sympathizers and general public to remain calm, and not be destructed by the recent defection of their former Military Spokesman, Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang.
“The SPLM/SPLA National Committee for Information and Public Relations would like to take this opportunity to inform its members of the desertion of Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang.” Said Mabior Garang de Mabior, the Chairperson of National Committee for Information and Public Relations.
According to Mabior, Lul’s defection is an isolated case that should be ignored given that it happened in his hotel room in the neighboring Kenya, compared to a defection on the battle field.
“The Movement assures members that this desertion is an isolated incident that occurred in a Nairobi Hotel, and does not have any bearing on the military or political situation in the country.” Mabior said.
