Juba, 9 August 2019: Unconfirmed report reached our desks revealing, the Presidential guards, the savage tribal forces which stand accused of the Juba Nuer massacred, in the thousands in 2013, and other inhuman carnage across the country are yet raising its head again and actively rearming.
The source who spoke to this reporter indicates that President Kiir is expected to reshuffle his cabinet and directors of security forces. The unconfirmed source says the individuals who will be affected by the reshuffles may include the First Vice President, Taban Deng Gai, this is in line with the Revitalized Peace agreement to pave away for Machar’s return to the country as stipulated in the peace agreement.
However, the source says Taban Deng Gai is not expected to relinquish his seat without resistance hence the troop deployment is to curtail any possible unrest although he does not have much military force, others who are expected to lose their positions among include the heavyweight Minister of National Security Lt General Obote Mamur who may have sizable Troop under his commands. The source further revealed, the Vice President James Wani Igga is also expected to be replace most likely by Martin Elia Lomoro, while the already incarcerated Director-General of NSS, Mr. Akol Koor Kuc who is believed to have recruited and trained thousands of private forces loyal to him is therefore to be eliminated.
The source indicates in any eventuality that will follow after the reshuffled, the President would, therefore, use his protection guards the Tiger battalion to protect him rather than relying on the regular SSPDF, hence the deployment of the Tiger battalion into strategic locations in Juba and the distribution of weapons and ammunition is send out a strong signal to anyone who would disobey the reshuffle order that they be made with resolute force.
The source says bullets and guns were also handed out to other affiliated forces mainly from Gogorial home state of Mr. President.
