The leader of the South Sudan United Front (SSUF), General Paul Malong Awan has accused the chief of National Security, Gen. Akol Koor of eyeing president Kiir’s position. While speaking to Australia based radio SBS – Dinka radio, Malong also revealed that he was forced to fight against the government accusing Akol Akoor as the mastermind behind that.
“Akol Koor is forcing people out he regarded as an obstacle to his mission of taking the presidency from Kiir,” said Gen. Paul Malong Awan.
“I was told to go to Kenya and promised the money for treatment, and none of that came. When President Kiir visited Kenya, the meeting was initiated by the ambassador for me to meet President Kiir.
“I was able to ask President Kiir about the reasons my money was delayed… and my passport. But there was no good answer. After our meeting, the ambassador who initiated the meeting between Kiir and me was humiliated and fired,” he said.
“I have never had the intentions to fight anyone. I wanted us to work together to find the roots or how things went wrong? I was released to go to Kenya on medical grounds, but I was stripped of my passport… I was given a document to travel in the region.”
Malong who is currently in exile in Nairobi, Kenya, has been having a cold war with the Security chief, Gen. Akol Koor ever since and after his break away from the government after J1 fight in 2016 in Juba.
