South Sudan’s Former Army Chief Denies Receiving $5m To Kill Riek Machar
Local Editor

Accusations filed against South Sudan's former army chief of staff, General Paul Malong Awan about obtaining $5 million from the country's Central Bank to kill rebel leader Riek Machar are untrue, the spokesperson of the Malong-led South Sudan United Front [SSUF] clarified.

"We are also refuting and condemning claims that 5 million dollars was given to General Malong so as to kill Riek Machar. It is untrue and thus a possible ploy meant to disintegrate the alliance formed by the oppositions against [Salva] Kiir's leadership," Sunday de John said in a statement issued Wednesday.

The South Sudanese presidential spokesperson was on Tuesday quoted as saying that the Central Bank of South Sudan was opened at night and Malong allegedly obtained the $5 million for military operations.

"You can't transaction money at night so that you use it to fight the war in the morning that is a misplaced statement manifestly meant to reveal lack of common sense. Is money bullets? For this reason, we urge the public to disregard this," de John said.

He dismissed as false all the allegations made against Malong, which mainly ranged from corruption practices, mastery of impunity, international blacklisting and transacting in the central bank at night.

"We disconfirm such false allegations and we urge the public to avoid listening to the falsehood by a leader that has deprived them of their basic necessities," stressed de John in the statement.

The SSUF official instead urged President Kiir's administration to focus on building strong institutions, improving peoples' livelihoods, developing the country and the rule of law, among other issues.

"If such things happened, Kiir should s
houlder the blame and hence fit to be charged for sinking the country through incompetency".

Malong, a former close ally of President Salva Kiir, announced the formation of SSUF, claiming it was the only means through which he would work with compatriots to "arrest the carnage" in the country.
