January 5, 2017, the death of Gabrial Tanginye has sparks a mixed reaction within SPLM-IO. Some called it an act of betrayal because Gabrial Tanginye is a hero. He has been a strong soldier, he fought for South Sudan independent and Nuer also call him an hero for his role in protecting his Nuer tribe.
However, his death has been welcome by SPLM-IO’s leadership and some of its political wings.
Finally a source in Phow have confirmed that the remains of General Tanginye has arrived this afternoon for burial.
