JUBA – three generals whom were reported to have defected to SPLM – IO are confirmed to have taken refuge in UNMIS Camp.

The move, according to our source, was prompted by a series of threat against the three generals known to have been staunch supporters of President Kiir.  Thomas whose full name could not be released for fear of repercussion reported “the defectos did not declare their defection to the SPLM – IO, rather they were escaping death assassination from their loyal president who has now instructed his forces not to leave any stone un-turned.”

Three generals, if defected must come out to say it to public that they have defected, otherwise, it must be treated a wild rumors, said Chol, an SPLM-IO’s sympathizers.  More importantly, three generals have had their bodyguards with them before being escorted to UNMIS because their lives were endanger by the very government they were supporting.  It is also alleged that the generals did not go to UNMIS with their bodyguards, saying their bodyguards were left to fight so that they could secure their way to UNMIS.

On a separate information, it is being rumored that General Nyang Chol, who is also a strong supporter of Salva Kiir is joining the three generals in UNMIS Compound as his life has been endanger as well.  It is not known as to why the generals would choose to seek refuge instead joining the Opposition side.  Stay tune!
