May 5, 2017 (JUBA) - South Sudanese army (SPLA) said Friday its forces have captured the headquarters of the opposition SPLM-IO fighters, allied to the exiled former First Vice President, Riek Machar, reversing all gains rebels made in the past months.

Lol State Minister of Agriculture Angok Achuol Barjok told Sudan Tribune on Friday that government forces have regained control of Dollo, some 20 miles west of Raja town, the administrative headquarters of Lol state.

The new military gains in favour of the government have tilted a previous significant push by armed opposition fighters to gain a strong foothold in the area.

“I would like to congratulate our gallant SPLA forces for the job well done. They have done well when they captured and destroyed the headquarters of the rebels in a place called Dollo. Now this place is under control of our forces," said Minister Barjok.

He further added that it was a joint operation including Divisions Five and Three under the command of Col. Albino Akol Mayuol and his Deputy Operation Commander Col James Riek Par under Supervision of H. E. Maj Gen Rizik Zachariah Hassan Governor of Lol State.

The SPLM-IO spokesperson was not reachable for comment.

The minister said the government was still pursuing armed fighters until where their legs would stop.

“The resting point will be determined by their legs and this is where they will stop with our forces. They are giving them a hot pursuit,” he added.

    Let the SPLA show those thugs on how things works. They’re the ones disturbing the current dialogue, thinking that they’re winning the war. We will rest till all those crossroads seek refuge in the neighbors countries. We don’t trust them any longer. Let this month be a month of rebels clearance.
    Bye rebels!

            I am in Juba not in the USA nor Raja. I can speak for the forces. What I am aware of is that fighting is ragging on in both Bahr el Ghazal (a previously no go area to SPLA-IO) and Upper Nile. What I can tell you is that fighting is creeping closer to Juba.

              You are not in Juba. You are in USA. Raja and Bhar el Gazal are under our control, nothing is going on there. Eastern Upper Nile is running from Renk to Malakal. Juba business starts booming again after the fall of USD. We received yesterday IO governor from Yambio. You will be forgiven when you come back to Juba, but after you pass through vetting.

The jienges simply said this was lies, how do they beleive what ST writes now about Raja is true? You realize one thing Eastern, South South has no home and now puts his only hope in Juba and so brags cos he is a vagabond. Without Juba, he is just a apiece of shit.

              USD started yesterday with 1450ssp per dollar, then dropped to 1350ssp by end of the day. In Market you report what happens by the end of day. USA stock market does the same. What you mentioned of 14500ssp is for $100. A kilo of sugar in Juba yesterday started with 200ssp, but the nd of the day yesterday dropped to 180ssp

                You are right on sugar and some commodities like floor but for USD rate it was 14.5 up to this morning maybe your costumer lie to you. But the bottom line is that USD and commodities Prince drop because of threat and robbery to civilian properties. Wait for some days and hear what will happen. Every body needs peace also I could enjoy if USD rate drop up to 8.5 proposed by authority

                  If the jienges cant fix the shit in their own backyards (Apuk vs Aguok) or even do some cultivation in jiengelands which have NO wars, how can they fix an economy that needs intelligent people? You cant get a primitive luakjieng to run modern economic systems. Its NOT like running naked after cows, theres more to that. They are born to use their muscles to fight not brains to thinks.

                South South lives in Kenya or Uganda and only dreams of Juba. He calls his fellow jienge moneychangers in Customs market or in Juba around Jubek Square opposite Ivory Bank, or Dahabshil where most jienge moneychangers idle around. He gets the updates and claims he is in Juba. Just let him tell us where Quality Hotel is, he doesn´t. How can a jienge know more about Juba than its owner

                  Thanks for clarification, now aweil, Waraf, Rumbek and Bor depend on WFP food like other states mean while South South claim to be in Juba. If he could one day visit Juba, he can feel ashame of supporting thug here in Juba. He will find many Dinka are begging also young Dinka girls are cheapers along Konyokinyo. They were brought from Yie with a hope to transport to their states.

            You were quite when Tonga was overrun by SPLA-IO, or Morobo and Gazi what happened? I guess again the JEM were at work. I cant imagine the jienges could do it alone. Good for you lets see how long that holds. By the way, I thought the savagery between Aguok and Apuk would interest you cos you cant go back to your luak. You can get killed. Great just idle in Juba,ya aryan jienge.

              I denied the big lies of yesterday about Tonga. Just go back and see what I said about it. SPLA is in Tonga. Morobo and Gazi belong to SPLA too. I do believe you are scare to death by now. SPLA is clearing out the pockets of IO in every corner of South Sudan, that’s all what is left right now. You will not hear any major battle again. I am not idle at all in Juba. This is my city.

            As long as there are no PoWs, arms captured and several IOs killed, I am fine with that. Contrary to the recapture of Tonga, IO puts facts on the ground. Do you have any? What if IO recaptures Raja (which I dont believe till we get reported evidences), all is just empty jienge bullshit. Just a ploy to motivate their demoralized nyors who have been humiliated in all fronts.

              What Raja you are talking about to be recaptured by IO? Did you forget your celebration a few weeks ago when IO spokesperson came out said they captured Raja? Only anger is what is left for you. Pour it out loser. All these pockets of IO will be cleared out one by one. Real men in Juba are ruling.

You jienges urgently needed a success story. In Tonga alone over 180 hungry nyors and diverse arms were captured, what have you, none? IO controls all roads in and out of Juba.

        Mr. john akeen,
        I already chanted by the name of our gallant forces,SPLA in front-line. If the rebel’s strong-hole in the western Bhar El Ghazal region is cleared, then the next target is Fagak. We will not afford any baby sitting rebels. They will have to decide themselves, whether they evacuate the country or committee suicides mission. The SPLA is tirelessly helping rebels moving out of SS.

    Do not celebrate the minor victory by rebels (SPLA) over rebels (SPLA/IO). The order will turn reversely that Kiir’s site beaten and the game continuous. Nothing to be proud of. Only when JCE project comes to an end. All plans are futile.
