Greater Equatoria Chiefs and elders have declared their allegiance to South Sudan United Front/Army (SSUF/A) under the leadership of Gen. Paul Malong Awan in the Khartoum yesterday.
The Council chairman of Greater Equatoria chiefs and elders said yesterday that they have decided to defect from the government because things are not being done correctly. The cultural leasers cited lack of security and services for the people of South Sudan.
Leaders from the Greater Equatoria region overwhelmingly justified that the reason as to why they joined Gen. Paul Malong was because the incumbent unity government has failed to bring people of South Sudan together and it also failed to expedite the implementation process of the Revitalized Peace Agreement which is direly needed by all citizens.
The cultural leaders under the leadership of chief Angelo James Foto, Council Chairman of Greater Equatoria chiefs. Others include chief Christopher Masten Issa, chief John Joseph and chief Violet Elson. The defected leaders were heroically welcomed by Thomas Peter, chairperson of Malong’s office in Sudan.
