SPLM- IO in Mundri – Western Equatoria State rejected the claims by Maj. Gen. Henry Malesh Louis.
The leadership of SPLA -IO forces in Western State under the leadership of Maj. General Wesley Welebe, the division Commander of the forces under direct command of SPLM /SPLA-IO led by Dr. Riek Machar said, they reject the claim by the unidentified man named Maj. Gen. Henry Malesh Louis that he is the commander of SPLA – IO forces in Western Equatoria State.
We don’t have any major general promoted by SPLM/SPLA -IO Commander in Chief Dr. Riek Machar in that name in entire Western equatoria State. The said Maj. general must be one of the government agent and we advice our supporters to be calm over such calms.
Western Equatoria State has only two generals promoted by the Chairman of SPLM /SPLA-IO and they are Maj. Gen. Wesley Welebe in Mundri and Alfred Futiyo in Yambio.
The report posted in the media was written by our representative and the said person does not have any thing to do with it.
We condemn such act and will work in our own ways to trace the perpetrators and investigate them.
