JUBA – A reliable source from within national security intelligence in Juba, disclosed to the Upper Nile Times that there was a security intelligence meeting, which took place on November 23rd and December 3rd to plan the assassination attempt against the SPLM-IO members during transitional period.

According to the source, who chose not to be identified for fear of repercussion, reported that the meeting was chaired by Akool Khor Diit, Director for Internal Security in presence of James Duoth Guet, Director for External Security and other senior army generals.  The discussion was centered on how they could eliminate the strong members of the SPLM-IO cold-bloodedly prior to 2018 election year.  In such meeting, the salient names disclosed secretly, and circulated among the confidently identified top secret agent are: Dr. Riek Machar Teny, because he is the second person in ranks to Salva Kiir.

They fear that “Salva Kiir’s health may deteriorate during this time based on his doctor’s report.  However, if he passes away, then, there is a fear of possibility that Dr. Machar would become the main successor according to the agreement.”

They alleged that the plan would be carried out with the help of Uganda secret intelligent unit inside the country to ensure that the man is gone once and for all.  Dr. Dhieu Mathok Wool, a man believed to have a firm stands advocating for the Nuer interest as a pretext to betraying the Dinka leadership, exposing it badly internationally. Manawa Peter Gatkuoth, the group fears that, this man is an influential figure and future leader given his network and connections across all tribes of South Sudan, so his rises to political stage must not be allowed. Stephen Par Kuol, the group fears Stephen for being a sharp critic on the government through writings on the media. Lieutenant General James Koang Chuol Ranleey, the group fears that he has an extensive experience militarily; and therefore, the SPLM-IO is very strong through him.  Mariano Mayuen, the group fears his CID connection in USA. Angelina Teny, the group stated that a mistake of late Dr. John Garang leaving Rebecca Nyandeng behind and making today’s noises shall not be repeated in case Dr. Riek is killed.  Therefore, both Riek and his wife must go!

Charles Alier, they said this man has mobilized his Twic-East people to join SPLM-IO and also betrayed the Dinka led regime. James Gatdet Dak, the group argued that this man makes every argument stronger and positive and defends his boss with logical reasoning, which in turns always makes SPLM-IO gains mass momentum through media.  Santino Gabriel, the group believes that the man betrays the Dinka led regime.  Agnes Peter, they declared that she mobilized her Madi youth to rise up against Juba government given her positive influence within her community member.

When contacted, the SPLM-IO security intelligence headquarters in Pagak, verification of such report was not made.  Therefore, the Upper Nile Times will follow through with this development, and find out details surrounding this report.  Stay tune!
