The spokesperson for the youth chapter, Magok Chuol told Sudan Tribune that the decision to dismiss Buay Keake Turoal was reached during a meeting in Kampala on Saturday.

Keake was nominated among the new armed opposition lawmakers, a move that did not go well with the youth.

“SPLM-IO in Uganda and their supporters would like to bring to the attention of the general public that our office strongly condemns the conspiracy plan against us by our member," said Chuol.

"We would like to remind you to distance yourself from Keake who is a supporter of Taban Deng Gai," he added.

He said the former chairman even failed to honour an emergency meeting conducted by the youth members, prompting them to replace him with Stephen Waat Bipal.

According to the armed opposition youth official, President Salva Kiir’s decision to replace Riek Machar with Gai contravened the accord that ended South Sudan’s conflict.

Meanwhile, Bipal confirmed that they fired Keake from the helm after he failed to explain his recent appointment as MP, adding their members fully support Machar.

Keake was unable to be reached, despite several attempts by Sudan Tribune.

    Watch out folks! El Tabani has dispatched disparate people to Kampala. There’s Oyet the man from Agoro, "Brig" Elijah Tut and Dr Richard K. Mullah. These evil men have been dispatched to Kampala to pave way for El Tabani’s visit. Watch out!!!

    Please organisers in Kampala; don’t make this meeting in Kampala appear a Nuer only affair. Reach out to all South Sudanese in town and outside of it: preach what Dr Machar is up to in Bweyale, Arua, Rhino camp, Adjumani, etc. The second revolution has just started!
