In a statement, rebel spokesperson, William Gatjiath Deng said reports that Manyok and other generals defected from Kaldak were “baseless” rumors.

“Maj. General Stephen Gawaar Manyok who is also the director general of veterans, wounded and heroes a long with the said officers alleged to have defected, have not been defected and they are now in the GHQs [General Headquarters],” he said.

Those circulating rumour, the armed opposition’s spokesperson further said, are “enemies” who want to create cracks among officers in the rebel movement.

“The ruthless regime has failed completely since they brought so many times the foreign troops (allies) to topple down the movement and we are still standing firm and ready to fight back their bribed foreign allies,” said Gatjiath.

“The last option for the dead regime is to auction around unnecessary information against the movement as you might have seen many fake fabrications floating on the social media," he added.

The South Sudanese army (SPLA) has not yet commented on the rebels’ statement.

    Those who faster speak or claims of somethings not exactly what it is are really wishing for outcry of others but, things never happen like the way they think things could
    Am really sorry for those who spread the measage of defection when it is not there
