"A combat unit of 750 soldiers or a battalion break faith with Machar’s group in South West of Gok State previously known as Lake state," said Dickson Gatluak Jock the spokesperson of the SPLA-IO led by Taban Deng Gai.

In a statement extended to Sudan Tribune, Jok added that the defected rebels, led by Col. Chol Manyiel Giec, abandoned Machar’ s camp on Thursday.

"They are currently stationing at Abiriu County. Before joining us, they had been temporarily based in Makoor area of South West of Gok state," he further said.

The military spokesperson praised the deputy administrator of the area col. Ater Mathiang Aterjok in Abiriu county of Gok state for the warm reception for the defectors.

    Liars, IO are only operating in greater Upper Nile and Equitatorian regions. You are calling outlaws Bahr el Ghazal Youth as SPL-IO. Such desperate people like Dickson Gatluak Jock shouldn’t be allowed to report anything on this website.

        Kiir and Taban can plot as much as they like, but the truth is that, their evil conspiracy to cling to power through trickery and mockery of the people is about to end up real ugly for them. They can recruit locals, don them in SPLA/IO attire and pass them as defectors or buy foreign mercenaries, but still that will not break the resistance from the real revolutionaries.

        South South,
        You can tell jienges anything and he in his limited brains will believe. Hopeless creatures. Has there been any IO activities in jiengeland at all? Where were their bases and who are their commanders? Why have we not heard of battles between SPLAnyors and IO? Why defect now if at all? These are Jienge criminals trying to boost their stooge Taban. Only Jienges believe in this shit 💩.

          You are a big coward because you are born like that. Raise your hands, bow down to me and ask forgiveness, that’s what Iam waiting to see from you, other that than.Reik’s IO is gone, is finished, is done, is over. But stupid people like you will wait until when it’s too late they think like human being, get it straight from me.

              Stupidity, stupidity. Just for Kiir to send ND committee to meet with Riek is a sign of Riek will be a president, rats’ eater. We can use his refusal to MD as a person who does not want peace and all world is going to believe us.

                Just answer this question you jienge scoundrel. Why did kiirminal send his hirelings and idiots to seek audience with Riak? Now the kiirminal has realized, he cant mess around with Drs and educated people. idiots can carry guns easily but not pens, they are not intelligent. ND is just jienge luak talk, what agamlongs and market women often do. Eat you monkey sausage in Juba slowly.

            South South,
            Now jienges are sensing the revitalization talks are getting on in AA, so they try to boost Taban Gai to give him legitimacy, so that IGAD believes he has an army. Jienge scum and shit. How could 750 nyors claim to have been for Riak, when they NEVER fought or even existed in jiengeland? These are Malong´s savages disguised as Riak´s. Losers and thugs.

          Responding to South South lends him the credence and by extension the tribal regime in Juba. Ahmed Deng Alor now understands the futility of towing its line the painful way. Don’t ask me how. Defection and counter-defection ain’t work..!

    When I heard any statements from the crown hotels gangs, I just laugh at it coz they re just groups of thugs who make empty noise in hotels to get their daily breads from the Dinka’s government in Juba, it obvious that if u re in juba n u don’t make empty lies u can’t get ur bread... So that results into a permanent mentally disorders n untreatable trauma illness to the Crowns.

      Parasites only wait for others to do the job and then later claim the credit. The Nuer nyagateen did it for you in Pagak. Jienges cant fight, they cowardly take flights. Kiirminal threatened to transfer command hqs to Yei, nothing, jienge Kuol gave 30 days ultimatum to IO, nothing. Waiting for UPDF/JEM/SPLM-N? Cowards

        Pack your laptop that you always write nonsense propaganda and come to Juba yourself before it’s too late! You’re lostly seems depending a empty pole position, all Nyagaateism are evacuating the Bush simultaneously. Surrender is not a shame, if it was, then Anya-II, SSIM known as now 1997 peace within of Riek Machar wouldn’t have done it in 2002.

          It seems now that you’re refusing coming to Juba just for shame. I think you will remain fools for good with your dead dreams of toppling the government of South Sudan. We’re here calling all traitors and betrays to denounced violence against South Sudanese people and come back home. Juba is for all of us, including rats hurnters!

            Praise the Lord, the Jubans and Equatoria has made you jienges now live human lives from your stinking and savage lives in jiengeland. We taught you how to wear "underpants" (aryan jienges) now you can eat kwedekwede and rat dishes. Next we want to fix you new set of teeth from your ugly and gaping mouths so you can pronounce F and P differently. Wasaka

            Like your name suggests, you should visit one of the Equatorians to teach you to hunt a "bush rat". Instead of starving and almost eating grass like your cows, you need some rat food. You see many jienges are eating them and feel very happy in Juba. Otherwise they would starve bcoz they are idlers and lazy people. Eat, sleep and shit peacfully, ya jienge

          Bush Natives,
          How stupid must one be to believe 750 defected from Riak to Taban? Riak´s IO is only presnet in Equatoria and Upper Nile. Period. Those IOs in jiengeland are opportunists, nyor renegades and thugs under fugitive Malong. Now they have no leader, they want to get to Taban so they can be integrated into IO. This is it. Fool a jienge BUT NOT a Bari or Equatorian. Bullshit

    DO IT
    Don’t ignore such tactics. The youth from Lakes this time are coming to guard Taban Deng Gai as Mathiang Anyoor 2. It’s the post which will be received scandalously by Kiir and Taban to blindfold the world that Taban has soldiers from all over the country. They will be mixed with IDPs to show to the world. This is the second phase of discontentment with revitalization by IGAD underway.

    DO IT
    This is the new phase of mobilization with full knowledge of Kiir, Taban and Marial Chanuong, a former Tiger gangster, now Infantry CDR in Kiir’s SPLA Faction. No doubts, these are youths from Marial’s Yirol, coming to reinforce the Anyoor. They must come to Juba in name of defecting rebels or else they will be questioned by RPF should they move in as done by Malong with Anyoor. Be careful!!

      With Marial Chanuong factor, what you are saying is accurate. The Kiir-Taban alliance can use anything to remain in power in Juba. Thank you..

    I didn’t read your comment but exactly that’s the strategy. A plan is in making to bring in more reinforcement in name of IO. This will as well disapprove any call by Riek to call for any further troops to protect as already some on ground. Only reintegrate them and later on begin shooting his other, including killing Riek this time. Watch out from such treacherous statements by fake Dickson!

    You are wrong. Don’t accept anything for granted. I know your uncles (JCE) are bankrupt now and can’t explain how much money they had borrowed in name of destroying the country? We shall live to reject payments to anyone who illegally loaned guns or money to warlords Kiir and Malong. I am waiting to hear the funeral of Malong, my best day ever!!

      Fair Man/useless man,
      Dancing on the keyboards isn’t the solution, the solution to this critical conflicts is one way or another, surrender as a way of defeat or accept whatever we direct you to. Otherwise remain isolated and confined as your dad in South Africa, the Ngundeng dreams son! J1 took us 21 years of struggle to establish.

        The Kiir-Taban alliance as you called it, is a dangerous union that is set to destroy, demolish and abolish the Peace agreement in any way possible.

        Now it’s evident that, the cunning Taban was an agent of doom send by the
        JCE to confuse the SPLO/IO and bring Riak to Juba to be slaughtered. But, as that didn’t work, he and Kiir are not going to stop at nothing until they succeed.
