May 31, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudan’s former humanitarian affairs and disaster management official Thursday has dismissed as baseless and misleading information reports claiming he had switched political allegiance and rebelled.

Joseph Lual Acuil Lual, said reports alleging he rebelled prompted him to make a clarification.

“I Joseph Lual Acuil Lual do hereby write this statement for immediate release that I have no support or allegiance to either the SPLM-IO (Sudan People’s Liberation Movement in Opposition) led by Dr Riek Machar or the (opposition) South Sudan United Front (SSUF) led by former army chief of staff, Gen. Paul Malong Awan,” said Lual through a statement released to the public on Wednesday.

The former cabinet minister said he has s always been in Juba where he remained a strong member and support of the government under the leadership of President Salva Kiir.

“I have always and will always remain a strong member SPLM-IG (Sudan People’s Liberation Movement in Government). I am always in Juba based in my house. Therefore, I refute all allegations as false and baseless misleading information. No one should take them as true," he added.

Currently serving as the member of the council of states and member of the national dialogue committee, Lual denied any link to rebels under the former First Vice President, Riek Machar and later joined the faction under the leadership of the former army chief of staff, Paul Malong Awan.

The people who are planning to joins rebels at any time which I have bee told by those close to their relatives are follows: 1. major gen, Bol Akot Bol. 2 Br, gen, Bol Mawien Mayol. 3. Br, gen, Manyang Riing Ariik and there are more but when asks them, they deny.

    What goes around may come around.

    Major general Stephen Rolnyang Buay had been linking with those rebels led by gen, Bapiny Monytuil who turned against his half brother Dr.Joseph Nguen Monytuil in Northern Liech State. Stephen Buay, I saw in Wau and he was comfortable getting what he want but seem to me that, all these former rebels are looking for trouble things when they have more money.
