Lt Col Chan Garang Joined the people’s movement.
The leadership of the SPLA IO would like to acknowledge the defection of Lt Col. Chan Garang Lual from the failed Juba regime to the people’s movement (SPLA IO) on 02/11/2017
Lt. Chan Garang Lual was an active operation commander in Torit under the rogue regime until the 26/10/2017 when he marched out of Juba with about 150 well armed soldiers. Lt. Col. Lual blamed the government of Juba for using soldiers to defend their selfish interest rather than the national interest something that he does not want to continue obeying.
Lt. Col Lual decided to joint the SPLA IO under leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny on 2/11/2017 and is currently with the SPLA IO Sector 8 Acting commander Maj. Gen Benjamin Gore. Lual is calling upon his former comrades still in government to join him under the leadership of Dr Riek Machar Teny and remove the rogue regime of Juba.
The SPLA IO appreciates Lt. Col Lual for his bold decision to become a real defender of Freedom, Justice and equality under the able leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny. We are calling upon any patriotic soldier under Juba regime to choose the side of the people not the corrupt individuals in Juba who are using them to defend their selfish interest. Let us welcome Lt. Col Chan Garang Lual and the force under his command to the people’s movement. The struggle continues.
Col. Lam Paul Gabriel
SPLA IO Deputy Military Spokesperson.
