Major General Jukino Fidel Jikanyo, governor of Fashoda state under the leadership of the chairman of the opposition faction of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM-IO), said the political and military leaderships of Agwelek have remained loyal to Machar.

He said the Agwelek leadership did not send anybody to Juba to take part in the government formed by Gai.

    Fashoda state?. Io stop complaining about 28 states since the have their 21 states in place. Rather the should talk on reforming 28 states. Specially east, west nile, and Lo states. The rest are fine to my perspective.

      Agwelek must understand that, any person collaborates with serial killer Riek Machar will an alienates all Dinkans support. An imagine, anyone with no support from Dinka, it’s a guarantee loses even if you fight for million years.

        Deng 11,
        Who appointed u spokesman of Dinkas? And how did you arrive to conclusion that all Dinkas support this tragic death marauding Salva Kiir’s regime?
        Please stop using our Dinkas in matters of shame. Dinkas are known for good things like John Garang did NOT failures such as Salva Kiir.

          Any one Dinka that against Dinka when Dinka survival on the line, he/she will be useless like those commanders of Dinka who are at odds with Dinka lead movement from 1991-2002 when Dinka survival was in critical condition. Machar is not kidding, if get he power, he can exterminate Dinka.

            "Garang didn’t failed" but Riek did rebelled against Garang, so how can you support someone who known to rebel to any body,regardless whether you doing good things or not? Someone who cares for him self.

              I don’t support Kiir lead corruption governments. I dislikes this most corrupted government but never wishes to change the governmen to Riek Machar, the serial killer. Riek can never be an alternative.

          Shadrack Nuer, It is all about who is in charge. If I ask you as you try to dismiss them as rebels, where are your so called government’s appointed governors of Greater Upper Nile? Where are these government appointees operating right now, Juba or Not? Why are they not going to their respective states to work? Because SPLM-IO control these areas. And you are here shamelessly trying to dismiss them
