January 10, 2016 (JUBA) - South Sudanese President, Salva Kiir, has sacked several top police generals, including inspector general of police two days after his government lost the ministry of interior to the armed opposition faction of the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement (SPLM-IO) under the leadership of former vice-president, Riek Machar.

The purged generals included a long serving police inspector general, Pieng Deng Kuol and his deputy, Andrew Kuol Nyuon, and have been replaced with Makur Arol as new inspector general and Biel Ruot as his deputy.

The order was broadcast by the state owned South Sudan Television (SSTV) on Saturday evening and did not elaborate on the motives of the changes at the time the government and armed opposition are expected to form a new transitional government of national unity.

The docket of the ministry of interior, according to the selection of ministerial positions conducted on Thursday will be occupied by the nominee of the opposition faction of SPLM-IO who will recommend a new inspector general to command the police force in the country.

The latest move is also seen as a way to curb the power of influence of some of the officers in the security and police services which have long influenced politics from behind the scene.

General Kuol previously served as deputy chief of general staff for finance and administration in South Sudan’s army (SPLA) before being removed from active military service in 2013 and put on reserve list of senior military officers who have been awaiting reassignment.

His former deputy, general Nyuon was one of the longest serving high ranking police officers in different capacities until he was appointed to the capacity of deputy inspector general of police.

Both worked under the overall command and administrative supervision of the former interior minister, general Aleu Ayieu Aleu, an ally of president Kiir, who until he was removed from the interior docket in 2015, had played a role of political king-maker for several years by seeking to influence leadership choices behind the scenes.

Changes in the security sector are closely watched in South Sudan, which has been plagued by the ethnic and political violence since gaining independence from neighbouring Sudan in 2011.

Speculations trying to understand the motives behind the removal of general Kuol in particular, who is seen as a close ally of the army chief of general staff, Paul Malong Awan, another strong military ally of president Kiir, have centred on his possible role in the African Union (AU) report of inquiry.

Remarks attributed to him [Kuol] in the report on the atrocities committed by governor forces in December 2013 have been largely interpreted by military and political allies of president Kiir to mean targeting them.

But some analysts see the changes in the police top command as another sign of the waning influence and trust of the president in some of the officers as opposition forces will infiltrate the police force through the implementation of the peace agreement signed in August between President Kiir and Machar in ending 21 months of war.

Relying on oil by 98 percent of its budget and virtually zero exports in other economic sectors, the youngest state on the African soil has been hit by a drastic oil price fall that has slashed its energy revenues by more than half over the past two years of the conflict which has polarized and classified the country into ethnic cantons.

      Sadly pieng Deng is not responsible for lake problem. Lake state has a government that can solve the problem or president Kiir is responsible. Pieng Deng is a great leader. He should be the minister of housing authority and development. I know him personally both in panyido refuge camp and in Juba in 1993. I believe president Kiir made a mistake of removing him from leadership position. Deng is on

        Dinka-Lazy-General,

        So you were a refugee camp general?

        I thought if you and Pieng Deng Kuol were true fighters you would have known yourselves in battle fields on the ground, but not hiding in pinyudo refugee camps and popping up in Juba later on after the peace agreement of 2005.

        Kiir is preparing for another war and that is why he brings in his cattle camp man to command his army-police.

    When juba civilians were massacred in their hundreds the Juba chief of police did nothing.

    He did nothing since to bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice.

    Now he has no future.

          Mi Diit, I was still teenager when I was in panyido and spla would not let join than 1990s if you can understand the spla and international law. General pieng Deng and Oyayi Deng Ajake coached and rise me to this position. Therefore, I got my ranks around Juba started in 1993. I was in magree, bilnyang, leery, torit, kapoeta,...so do you still doubt me and my leadership skills?

    I am not sure where were these people who are commenting negatively about Pieng Deng?! Especially before the CPA Agreement of 2005 when they were in front lines battling Khartoum forces around Toriet and others areas with Oyayi Deng Ajak. I remember these battles very well. The majority the Government ministers now were eating with Khartoum in same plates that time.

      Lino,

      Pieng Deng Kuol was a lazy fighter. This is a fact. Having a title of a fighter is one thing, but fighting a war skillfully is another thing. We know very well who are skillful fighters in South Sudan.

      Please stop believing stories you heard from these mouth fighters. They sat somewhere in a refugee camp, or foreign capital and got ranks and paid single visit to war fronts.

        Practically most of these mouth fighters never captured a single town.

        What John Garang used to do was to direct a true fighter from other tribes to attack a town and when the town was about to fall, he would recall the true fighter and sent in his Dinka officer to replace him so that he will be announced over SPLA radio as the one who captured the town.

        I knew all these games of faking history.

            Mi Diit, do you provide examples or facts where Machar or you captured a town and you was told not to proceed because Dinka units arrived. You are a big liar. Please stop lying too much to people. Remember spla was suppose to capture Juba 1991 and broke away. It was a big setback for the spla soldiers, but we managed to free you.

              Stop lying. Who did you free? Instead we freed you through our strategic thinking through self-determination and Khartoum Peace Agreement (KPA).

              You came to Juba in peace with your tails between your legs. Torit, your Hqrs, was still under Khartoum’s control when the CPA was signed in 2005.

              Malakal, Wau, etc, all under Khartoum’s regime.

Remember kapoeta, torit, leery, and many other states were under the spla when you and your leader so-called Machar split from the spla. So spla soldiers fought with you first time and Khartoum took advantage of your greed. You helped Khartoum captured all the towns you mentioned. Read the facts or history.

                  You are a liar. The towns I mentioned such as Juba, Malakal and Wau were NEVER in history captured by SPLA. They had been under full control of the Khartoum government. We did not help Khartoum to capture them because SPLA had never captured them from Khartoum in the first place.

                  Stop lying!

                  Kalo,

                  Stop lying. Pieng Deng Kuol was the inspector general of police in Juba when innocent Nuer civilians were massacred in Juba by Kiir’s militias and police forces.

                  He did not do any thing to stop the killings.

                  Don’t give him a peace mark he doesn’t deserve. He is a blood thirsty maniac like the rest of his evil men who will perish soon.

                    Riek has killed more people than any of the people you point your grubby little fingers at. You have as much chance of proving your claims against Pieng as you do of proving the ’prophesies’ of Ngudeng. LOL! You really are a retard.

                You are beyond delusional. The KPA did not play any role in South Sudan’s independence. Riek’s agreement was completely dishonoured and he complained that he was ’cheated’ by Khartoum, and you think that this pathetic agreement played a role in our independence? Nobody believes this other than retarded Ngundeng believing animals.

                  Riek did nothing to physically achieve self-determination. How exactly did Riek champion self-determination? Did he champion self-determination by getting into a military alliance with the Ignaz Nazis? By unleashing a tribal militia to slaughter thousands of civilians? By getting too dependent on Khartoum that he couldn’t maneuver without their approval?

                    Did he champion the right to self-determination when his pathetic agreement was entirely dishonored by Khartoum? He didn’t bring self-determination, however, he did offer himself to Khartoum and was treated like a prostitute as a result. Riek is a male prostitute and you [his people] worked as prostitutes for Khartoum.

                      You quite laughably try to justify Riek’s stupidity by saying that he was the first to ’succeed’ in getting Khartoum to enshrine the right to self-determination in the ’constitution’. Khartoum doesn’t regard documents, conventions and constitutions as worthy of compliance in the absence of force. Does it have any regard for the Geneva convention!? Of course it doesn’t...

                            The fact that Khartoum feigned sincerity when it enshrined the right to Self-Determination in the Constitution speaks volume of their cunning and political skill... and of their ability to manipulate the stupid, the naive and the myopic. Khartoum had no intention of honoring these commitments, especially when it was they that armed, fed and provided Riek’s forces with logistical support.

You guys went the other way round. You got it backwards. You thought that Khartoum would take you more seriously the more dependent you became. Riek admitted that he got cheated. He didn’t get cheated, he’s just an idiot.

                                                    Those sympathetic to Riek claim that he was genuine in his desire to disentangle himself from Khartoum and saw acceptance by the NDA as his last chance to obtain alternative sources of arms, which alone would free him from dependence from Khartoum.

                                                      If this was true, it is consistent with the confused, almost schizophrenic attitude towards liberation and collaboration, which he displayed from the beginning of the failed Nasir coup attempt in August 1991 to his resignation from the government in February 2000.

                                                          Once the split occurred, the government developed a four-prong strategy that encouraged Riek machar to fight the SPLA. It backed away from offering independence, mounted large scale offences against Garang’s forces and used the disintegration of the SPLA to facilitate its repression of the African people in Southern Kordofan, Darfur and Southern Blue Nile.

            You have no evidence for any of your laughable conspiracy theories and claims. It really is pathetic. The Dinka fought the war against Khartoum and you worked for Khartoum, like the dogs that you are, and historians do not agree with your Nuer nonsense. Only retarded Ngundeng believing hicks will believe your nonsense. The rest will laugh at your desperation and your dishonesty. LOL!

              I want you to provide evidence for your retarded claim that John Garang used non-Dinka soldiers to capture towns and then pretended that the Dinka were responsible for these exploits. You will undoubtedly fail to provide an ounce of evidence for these laughable claims, because you made it all up. You’re a pathological liar, hell-bent on representing your your people [Khartoum’s dogs] as patriots.

                Throughout the fighting, not one war casualty was admitted to the Nasir hospital. Riek’s troops sat idle as Khartoum pushed back the Dinka. The results of Riek’’s sell-out to Khartoum could not have been more glaring. The Dinka suffered mightily. (Me Against My Brother: At War in Somalia, Sudan and Rwanda, Scott Peterson)

                  The initial problems between Garang and Kawac arose because of fears of the large numbers of Malwal who joined the SPLA campaigns in Ethiopia. In modern times it is claimed that 80 percent of the ethnic composition of the SPLA is Dinka. Of this percentage, however, 45 percent comprises of Malwal recruits alone.

                      In 1988, the SPLM and international human rights organizations accused the Sudanese government of attempted genocide of the Dinka. Modern military equipment, including helicopters and cargo planes adapted as bombers, were used to devastating effect against Dinka villages, and more than 1 million Dinka are believed to have died in the conflict.

      People whom you share blood, culture and language with, are ’foreigners’? You should be shot for that disgusting sentiment. Even the Nuba and the people of Blue Nile are not ’foreigners’ in my eyes. The Nuba fought harder than virtually any tribe in South Sudan and we’ve not been sufficiently grateful and kind to them.

      Mapuor,

      Stop lying. The war did not start in 1983. Don’t fake history!

      The war started in 1955 (Anya Nya One), again in 1974 (Anya Nya Two), and then in 1983 (SPLM/SPLA).

      And before that our forefathers such as Both Diu led calls for self determination in 1947.

      So stop your cheap lies. Everybody is aware of the true history.

        He’s clearly talking about the second civil war, you idiot. Anya Nya II didn’t achieve anything and became a government militia during the 80s, so sod off with your cheap distortions. Both Diu was just one of many people that advocated for Southern rights, but you became Khartoum’s slaves for decades. You have been running amok in my absence.

            Even when Riek was on our side [for that very brief period] during the war, he was unspeakably incompetent. Riek does not have any organizational skills to speak of — and he had little to no regard for strategic military planning. He was well furnished with supplies and artillery and outnumbered the enemy in the battle of Bom Adol... and he still failed...

              ..On his way back to Ruweng County from the Battle of Yoi in the Nuba Mountains, his military incompetence resulted in a disastrous ambush that claimed the lives of a lot of good men and a great deal of equipment. He didn’t secure the flanks! He was responsible for these military defeats and debacles. You are delusional, but I expect nothing else from people that believe in Ngundeng.

    These Internet fighters know nothing about the sacrifices of Abyei Sons and Daughters from 1955-1972 and 1983-2005; as well as Nuba and Fonj People from 1983-2005.
    Please go educate yourself and watch SPLM /A videos before opening your mouths. DR John Garang knew that the betrayal will happened if these handicapped South Sudanese assumed power. It was a reason he circled himself with wise SPLM/A.
