May 10, 2017, developing stories in Bilpam and around Juba, SPLA Chief of General Staff Paul Malong Awan is under house arrest just few hours after being fired by a president Salva Kiir Mayardit.

Paul Malong  was sacked on Tuesday evening following the deadly plot against Mr Taban Deng Gai along Juba-Bor road early in the morning. A military source in Bilpam says that the political milieu between Mr Malong and other top elites in the government has been an issue since March; on several occassions official meetings ended in acrimonious disputes. Since yesterday the former deputy for operations Gen. James Ajongo Mawut has been put in charge of Mr Malong’s position.
