Malong official urges government to end culture of bribery!

OCTOBER 12, 2020

NAIROBI – A senior opposition official of South Sudan United Front (SSUF/A) led by General Paul Malong Awan has urged the government of South Sudan to end what he said is a culture of bribery which he said may jeopardize the ongoing peace process.

This comes days after an opposition commander loyal to Malong in Unity state said he has defected along 2500 forces to South Sudan People’s Defense Forces (SSPDF) saying such moves were crucial in peace-building in the country.

Speaking to Sudans Post this morning, Dickson Gatluak Joak, a senior opposition official loyal to Malong, denied the claims that 2500 forces previously loyal to Malong have defected to the government in Unity state saying the whole division has less forces than the those said to have defected.

“This is not true – those who defected to the government are individuals and you don’t need to exaggerate the number,” Gatluak said.

“SSUF/A still having presence in Unity State despite its few individuals being bribed by government. Myself and the rest of many Nuer General from Upper Nile are still with General Paul Malong. So the movement still intact,” Gatluak said.

Gatluak further urged the government to bribery because it may jeopardize the ongoing peace process.

“The government need to end the culture of bribery because you shouldn’t practice such activities when people are busy on peace process,” he added.
