In 2014 shortly after the current civil war breaks out in South Sudan, General Dau Aturjong defeated to SPLM IO led by Dr. Riek Machar. However, it was well known that Gen. Dau Aturjong was working with the leadership of regime in Juba. A commitment made through community that if he will not attack Aweil, his salary will continue being paid despite the fact that he claims to be fighting with the regime.
The question now is, what do you think will change this time the same Gen. Achuil Lual Achuil who is now claiming to defect to SPLM-IO again?
According to SPLM-IO sympathizers, the defectors are received by Lt Gen Gabriel Duop Lam, SPLM/A((IO) Deputy Chief of General Staff for Operation, Maj. Gen. Achuil Lual Achuil quit Salva Kiir regime together with high ranking officers. Their names are as follows:
- Brig, John Akok Majok
- Brig Simon Deng Deng
- Brig Paulino Atak Anei
- Brig Robert Rol Lual
- Brig Zechariah Ngor Kuol
- Col Ding Bak Ding
- Col Arop Kuot Arop
- Col Mal Wany Tong
- Lt Col Mayuin Athian Akok
- Lt Col Lual Agok Lual
- Deng Majok Akuey.
Gen. Achuil Lual Achuil’s forces, made up of thousands of men and women in uniform, are currently at his GHQs in Northern Bahr el Ghazal Awiel.
