Press Statement: Government soldiers counterfeits themselves as SPLA-I.O Soldiers on SSBC

​Press Statement.

Guit, Unity State – Government soldiers pretended as SPLA-I.O Soldiers on SSBC tonight

This is to inform you once more again that, the defectors that were announced by the state leadership last month on 31st. July. 2016 have finally invited some SPLA soldiers and Terchuong militias to Kuergeng in order to blindfold the people of south Sudan that, they are the I.O loyalist of Taban Deng who defected and dismissed from the party.

The development came after they failed to convince and bribe the youth of Guit who vehemently rejected to be with them for the sake of their people.

The State leadership under Lt. General Ruai Kuol Jal, would like to assure the general public that, those who appeared on SSBC apart from the individual generals are the pure enemy that we usually engage in battles.
Guit youth are still committed to the cause and they are currently with their Commissioner Maj. Gen. Hoth Chuol.

The reason that the gallant I.O soldiers didn’t chase the defectors away from Kuergeng was because of the order from H.E the Governor, Ruai Kuol Jal, of not to fight them since they suffered with us in the bushes. And Governor assured our authorities in Guit that if three generals chosen to surrender to the regime that killed their people than it is their choice and let go them in peace.
The real and factual number about the guards taken away by the defectors that your state leadership disclosed to you last month is still the same.

Weirial Puok Baluang,
Press Secretary in the Office of Unity State Governor
