Right body urges Kiir to allow ex-army chief bury daughter


September 15, 2017 (JUBA) – An official from the Centre for Peace and Justice (CPJ) has urged South Sudan President Salva Kiir not to prevent ex-army chief of staff, Paul Malong from burying his daughter in Northern Bahr el Ghazal state.

CPJ’s coordinator, Tito Anthony said it was a difficult moment for Malong, whose daughter, Alakiir Malong, died in an inferno at Moi secondary school in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, last week.

"Gen. Malong should be given rights as a father and this is the hardest time for him, where President Salva needs to stand with him instead of betraying him,” said Tito in a statement issued on Sunday.

"There no need to deny him from traveling for burial, instead President Kiir should comfort him in time of sorrow as his brother and colleague in the government", he added.

The official dismissed fears that Awan was capable of joining rebellion or forms a rebel group if allowed to travel out of Juba.

Tito, however, said the ex-army chief should be given protection forces to the burial place in case the government still doubted him.

"If the President wants Gen. Malong under house arrest, then he can order the security to travel with him to Aweil and bring him back to Juba where he is under house arrest,” stressed the CPJ coordinator.

In May, Kiir fired Awan and replaced him with Gen. James Ajongo Mawut.

      Malong betrayed himself, he served and people appreciated for his commitment, why he moved out of Juba at night with arms, when he heard the news. if he was a real man he would handed over the office and than stay like Hoth Mai and the rest. something is fishy

        After Malong heart the news he left Juba by road.
        He needs not ask permission,he was the president himself.
        Salva kiir was nothing to him,he gave orders to kill Dr Riek, his body guards,he ordered the killing of inocent civilians in Juba and around the country,he was above the law,but now.
        He went to the central Bank and stollen millions of Dollars he must be sorry for himself,now Kiir is happy.

      The truth must be said ,history will juge,Dinka are the majorty in population yes we know ,but their rule has shown no quality at all ,we are ruled by a lion.

      Before the Aweil community said Salva Kiir is our president ,he is our leader,now Salva Kiir shows them that he is truly a cowboy not un idiot like Malong.Now who is strong man? Malong or Salva kiir?? The truth is that Salva Kiir is a Lion wearing Goat`s skin. Even now if Gen:Malongs dies in Juba what will Aweil do???????? Allow Malong to go free if he want to rebell is his rights .

    It is just lack of humanity and compassion that has come to play in this. Above all Paul Malong killed innocent South Sudanese due to lack of the same reasons. Our womenfolk are frequently raped and so is the country by people who have no feeling of humanity and compassion. The same situation has now come to their door ways. Many of us have people killed by them and their bodies are not found.

      Why is Kiir afraid of Malong,let him go to Aweil,if he want to rebelled let him do it,how many Generals are in the Bush?? Malong was in the army,but now he is a ordinary person. Salava Kiir is a mafia ,so if Malong is a smart guy ,Juba is a small place,it is easy to get out from Juba in the night !!
      You are not in prison only in the house is very simple,pay me i will take you to Aweil today.

    You remain there until peace will get you there. Kiir is not an easy man. He said it already that is not going home for burial what is a grantee of going home and coming back? Even those who scotted him should surrender themselves if they reached there whether they like it or not. King paul become small like insect. The rather work for Government and think for your community. Don’t finished ur ppl

      Salva kiir is very stupid too,he is supposed to step downd now before things are too late.Those generals who left him and many other are still in the army in Juba ,they are still studying him his tricks ,firing officials Governors and replacing with new ones,when you are appointed to office you have to steal as much as you can because it is not a permenant Job,even Taban Deng Gai was fired before.
