June 06, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Multiple reports from the neighboring states of Western Bhar el Ghazal and Western Equatoria allege that “Several battalions” of troops have defected from the army (SPLA-Juba) and South Sudan Police Service (SSPS) in the two embattled states.

According to the Deputy Spokesman of the SPLM/SPLA leadership, Mr. Nargi Roman, the troops which defected this morning have declared their allegiance to the armed Opposition under the leadership of the war-torn South Sudan’s former Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny.

“This morning in Western Bahr el ghazal state, Several battalion defected from government troops and police services from different units to join the SPLA-IO and switly declared allegiance to SPLM/SPLA-IO under able leadership of Dr.Riek Machar Teny” Cde Nargi said.

The Opposition confirms that the renegades from Wester Bhar el Ghazal State are commanded in parts by the 1st Lt. Jedo Hassan Suliema, 1st Lt. Martin Juma and 1st Lt. Wilson Francis Dongo, all from South Sudan Police Service.

Another group from the army, which defected from Wau, is believed to have joined the SPLA [IO] forces, under the direct commands of the newly established Wau state’s Military Governor, Mr. Tingo Peter.

In accordance with the Opposition’s Pagak’s resolution,  Cde Tingo Peter, whose forces recently captured the regime’s military and police posts at Bazia County, leads the operations in Western Bhar el Ghazal as a Military Governor.

The source further reiterates that a unit of heavily armed government troops, under the direct command of Capt. Nimeri Justin, have joined rebellion in Western Equatoria state this afternoon.

“From Western Equatoria state, a full batallion breakaway with all war fares and joined SPLA -IO early this afternoon under the command of Capt.Nimeri Justin .” Said Nargi, the deputy spokesman of Dr. Riek Machar.

While the overwhelmed residents of Western Bhar el Ghazal and Western Equatoria states are shocked and concern of the deteriorating security as war rages in states that have been relatives calm for the past 17 months, Juba is weighing SPLM’s Arusha Reunification agenda with the IGAD-Plus Peace Processes that are expected to resume soon in the neighboring Ethiopia capital, Addis Ababa.

South Sudan conflict began in mid December 2013 and continued to escalate for the past 17 months.

Following the breakdown of Peace Talks in Addis Ababa, which has given the two warring parties a window of intense battles in nearly all the ten states, South Sudan economy and security have collapsed as more oil-fields and strategic towns are seized by the rebels.

The well equipped government troops, which are blamed for advancing attacks in Unity, Jonglei and Upper Nile states, have recently lost many strategic towns in Greater Upper Niile and Bhar el Ghazal region.

In other reports, the State Government of Upper Nile, led by governor Simon Kun Puoch, has relocate its headquarters to Renk County as security status in the capital, Malakal, remains volatile.

Hon. Kun and many of his officials have sheltered in UN camps in Makala and also in Melut as fighters of the Opposition severally take control of the strategic capital of the oil rich Upper Nile  state with very minimal resistance from the government troops and militia.

      Dear Readers and Reporters:

      Based on my experienced with Riek practical way, Riek Machar Ebola Rebellion is suffering from intellectual disabilities because their understanding of politics is based on tribal emotions; which is exactly what happened in 2013, when 25,000 Lou, Jikany and Gawaar Youths are Misleaded by tribal mind-sets Ideology and Influence and marched to Juba and Bortown to killed and for loot and destroy of properties.

      My prediction is that The ISIS REBELS OF SOUTH SUDAN Poisoned by Riek Ebola viruses will breakup into factions as it happened in 1990s and each Nuer clan faction will end up signing a peace deal with the Government in Juba separately; like what happened with Dr Garang. history repeated itself.

      I speak my words out and May God be with the people of South Sudan.

      Thank you very much.

        What is going on with what you have been calling “SPLM/A Main Stream” looks like it becoming rather an insignificant stream compares to that of Dr.Machar’s. Ya I had to say Machar because I know you have a terminal phobia with that name or individual. ISIS is a Israeli & American created group and as you know SPLA/M-In Opposition is fighting American agents in the form of Uganda’s UPDF ground fighters. Your logical correlation between the freedom fighters and ISIS is shallow. You are more than likely to befriend ISIS than anyone in South Sudan and yet both of you will be defeated including the Americans unless they shift policy of dealings.


      • June 6, 2015 at 6:20 pm

        Abuchook, to sign a separate peace with government sometime happened when it’s legitimate government not the tribal one like Kiir militias. Look, there will never be a defection from rebel to Kiir militias because there is no were for solders to defect to rather than Mathiang Anyoor and Gelweng. Is that a safe place for human to defect to? the answer is Big No!

        You are just a warmomger whose ultimate vision and function is the eradication of the average Nuer and Dinka nations. You belong to the elites who are ashamed of their people and for that reason want them all dead. Do u know how it is to be an ordinary Nuer or Dinka? Go to Nuer and Dinkaland and see what war has done to your people instead of talking nonsense on the net. How many Nuer and Dinka are in the UN camps in Juba, Bor, Benturi, Malakal, Akobo, etc afraid to go home because of people like u? How will defections and counter defections bring peace? idiots.

      IT is not going to be a defection any more but a surprise ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

      Hiding in juba and eating drinking prostitution and has come to the end time.

      Those who been running their mouths against Dinkas are now getting quiet as the war is about to head home. Equatorian share of the war is creeping in slowly and the obvious culprits are not Dinkas,whom they perceive as having sinister plan against their people and land.

    Thousands congratulations to the newly defections from Western Bhar El Ghazal State and Western Equatoria State for their knowing the truth and saving our new nation from the tribal government in juba led by dictator salva kiir. freedom fighters oyeee salva must go


    • June 6, 2015 at 11:27 am

      All the defections if true, will not affect Kirr’s chairmanship. they will only accelerate our status of being a fail state.Equatorian who have been running as middlemen between Kirr and Riek, will not remain unfaze this time! governors of Equatoria and their soldiers will now fight for their political survival whether they like it or not.

    To Any reader and Writer on this Social Website:

    Be well Informed that Nothing is all new about Defection and Rebellion; whether organized or unorganized it will be will considered as back stabbers. In 2010 to 2013, The SPLA MAINSTREAM JUBA ARMY was so sicked and full with All Riek Machar Ebola viruses.

    Now Real Nationalist citizens and Patriotic citizens are on the Driver seat of the SPLA MAINSTREAM JUBA ARMY. Since 1990, Every color of Riek Machar Ebola viruses is well know to the SPLA MAINSTREAM JUBA ARMY Nationalist citizens.

    But now all Riek Machar Ebola viruses are eliminated and run for their own life and Sheraton Hotel in Addis Ababa is the Headquarters of Riek Machar Ebola viruses.
    Riek Machar Ebola Rented Home in Bole suburb city area In Addis Ababa is the home place at night Riek Machar discussed his Ebola viruses mission and his ways of how to spread and Infected his Ebola viruses in people.

    This Rebellion of Riek Ebola has no real and clear objectives and goals: it is just a Rebellion formed based on tribal mind-sets Ideology and Influence… period and full stop.
    Please asked Riek Machar Ebola why he formed this type and kind of Rebellion??

    I speak my words out and May God be with the people of South Sudan.

    Thank you very much.

      Abuchook & Adut Magoes,

      “Mass Defection Hit Government Troops In Wester Bhar el Ghazal State!”

      Not in Upper Nile, not Equatoria but in the heart land of Jaang..The Western Bhar el Ghazal State.

      I was wrongly assuming both of you were mentally and strategically there and alert and not overwhelm by tribal bigotry, I am surprise that you still insist that this too is Nuer and or Machar rebellion exposing your stupid personality and tribal arrogance in disregards of the fact that the conflict is of a national issue. sadly you both seems mechanically deprived at birth of the basic human intelligence and sensory that enable one with accurate assessment and damage control capability. You would avoid nonsense and appeal persuasively to the better part of the local’s emotion and win back their mind and hearts but because of your mediocre mentality instead, you continue to foolishly attack personalities on old grudges and tribal despises that are yet baseless and fictitious.


      • June 7, 2015 at 5:02 pm

        gatnor the people rebellion in west Bhar Gazal and west equatoria against the government is something we don’t worry about it, let tell you something when I was in village in Bhar el Gazal when we cultivating the sorghum in the garden and the are about to be ready for the harvest the corps before harvesting the corps the monkeys begin to attack the garden and then what you can do? the what you do is not to worry about them but, to Chase them away or if they don’t running away by then they are to be killed the same way with Riek Machar Ebola and his groups if they don’t away then they must be killed and the owners of the garden will harvest their crops with out no fairer of they monkeys being eating his crops.

      I don’t live in South Sudan either, I am proud of my two countries. I can go back and settle of my own. The question is about you because you have delayed yourself for years studying and it is now a nightmare. You will die like Pro.Dr. Wani Tombe because he was too expensive.

    I just like to remind everyone that the kingdom is on fire & as such its crumbling to pieces. Jaang Councils Of Criminal Elders will soon try to relocate their headquarter for operations to Chad & Uganda. They will be hunted down like the Ex-Nazi war criminals who were swiftly hidden away to South American countries by the world war II financiers and bankers. I see another tribal cold war or even a full blown rebellion coming after this war is over.


    • June 6, 2015 at 6:03 pm

      our kingdom is not on fire is on pass way to victory, but the kingdom of Dr Riek Ebola want to build will come to and end thanks God for that it will be no more death.


  12. June 6, 2015 at 4:31 pm

    ABUCHOK, every argument you put down on paper, explains itself that you are not winning the battle. You may use terms like EBOLA or ISIS to justify you big LIE. It over my dear, because we are closing around you. Better run now than later BIG LIAR.


  13. June 6, 2015 at 7:15 pm

    They are trying their all effort by encouraging and treating every rebellion separately, for example:Agweleg, Equotrian resistence faction, Northern Bharalgazel fighers and many more in order to sign a separate peace with them later. That will never happen because those factions are fighting not for their own interest, but for the interest of whole nation.

    Good for freedom fighters. The truth never die. Those of riek machar have the truth. The leaders & their people were really a victim. actually the whole south sudanese people were the victims of salva kiir & useless council of elders. I have many dinka friends and most of them are good people. It is only the so called leaders who are using them to enrich themselves. Good dinka should join the rebelion. The rebelion is not about machar. it is about saving south sudan.


  16. June 7, 2015 at 7:46 am

    that regime of juba will end soon


  17. June 7, 2015 at 8:41 am

    Well come dinka and Equaterian brothers and join freedom fighters to save our nation from trader Kirr and his robber friends especialy Uganda,


  18. June 11, 2015 at 5:07 am

    I learn one thing about this debate it remains me about South Sudan resistance in early eighteen century, compared with our current situation you will really that those who have like of nationalism by than having a like of nationalism up to know,people they kept busy criticise particular people without study the roots cost of our problem.

    Criticism in term of ethical will produce negative effects our Nation will not be one any more and to divided ourselves also would take time strengthen, all in all the beneficiaries were enemy of peace but.the happiness groups should be regret soon for out fits of division.
    Let work to advocacy the peace may holy mighty GOD happened eye and help as within critical situation,our leaders forget the international community have negative role over our situation,having to much resources it become concer, and again the poor leadership we have doesn’t focus on Regional interest toward our Country.
    So my advice let us have long term version.
