More Chollo Politicians Targeted By Security Forces In Juba, South Sudan
April 24, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Latest reports from South Sudan capital, Juba, allege that the Chollo politicians in Salva Kiir’s Government are under intensive surveillance from South Sudan National Security service.
A reliable source revealed that more than five houses of Chollo politicians in Juba are surrounded and monitored by members of Security forces.
In addition to house of Dr. Lam Akol, the houses of Hon. Ayuok Ogat, and Hon. Joseph Bol Chan, the speaker of Council of States, are also framed up by the security.
The insider believes that Chollo politicians, who are suspected to be in communication with the warlord Maj. Gen. Johnson Olony who took control of Malakal are being wiretapped and may face arrests or other charges if found in communication.
This report was also reiterated by the latest press release by the Press Secretary of Dr. Lam Akol who responded to Hon. Michael Makuei Lueth, the government minister of information who denies the incident.
According to the Government Spokesman, Makuei Lueth, the SPLM-DC leader is not under house arrest or denied his rights of movement but said he will arrest Dr. Lam if he wants.
“If we want to arrest him, I will take him to prison. These are his usual claims,” Makuei said.
Lam announced on BBC this afternoon that three cars, full of security officers, were stationed at the edge of his house putting his life at risk.
“Since 9 o’clock in the evening. There are three cars here, some of them [security] are in the cars and others are around the building here” Dr. Lam explains to BBC
