JUBA – General Salva Kiir, the chairman of Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) and the commander in Chief of Juba allied forces has lashed out at SPLMIO Chief Negotiator, Gen Taban Deng Gai and Former Detainees leader Deng Alor Kuol for refusing to show up at PPC (political parties council) headquarter to register SPLM for the first time as a political party in the South Sudan.
Speaking on Thursday, a day after the party was officially registered, Kiir accused the two of ‘another betrayal and backing down when they previously showed clearly that they will be at the party registration’
“We invited them to come with us so that inu we register the party together. They are members of Political Bureau and like everyone else, we invited them. But at the last minute, Taban and Deng Alor refused to show up. This is the same attitude that will make this party not to progress. But i will not allow backstabbing of other people derail the progresses this party fought for. If they didn’t want to come and be at the registration, what make them to the recent convention? You can not like one and hate another of the same” – Kiir said.
General Taban and Deng Alor were at the recent SPLM-Juba convention were basic party documents were amended and passed. Taban however disclosed in a press statement later that he was not going to the convention to endorse the documents rather to witness as an invitee by the Vice President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa.
Deng Alor and General Taban at the convention challenged the establishment of the 28 states in the presence of Kiir calling it an opening for tribal wars in throughout the country.
