Dear Southern Sudanese: Taban Deng is a desperate politician!

Yei, South Sudan

Taban has proven it beyond a reasonable doubt today that, there is no national army in South South. There is only a collection of militias “SPLA-IG”. Look at how he addressed Equatorians while he was on his trip in hotspot (Yei Town). He told Equatorians that they should support him so that they could have a chance to join national security(NS), army and police since the Equatorians are few in those institutions. His speech implies that, those institutions are dominated by one ethnic group, Dinka.

One of the demands of SPLM/A-IO under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon, was to merge the two armies instead of integrating the SPLA-IO’s forces into a group of militias known as SPLA-IG. If Taban is calling for the integration of forces, has he not abolished what was signed in the peace process?
