Breaking News: Dinka former Gen. chief of Staff Paul Malong is under house arrest


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.
