August 1, 2012 (JUBA) – A top-level military officer on Tuesday denied reports alleging the arrests of senior military officers in the South Sudanese army (SPLA), including the deputy chief of military intelligence, Mac Paul, relate to an attempted coup.

"The mission of SPLA as national army is clearly defined in the onstitution. We are a national army with no political allegiance and activities. Our constitutional responsibility is simply to uphold democratic values and defend our country", said James Hoth Mai, Chief of General Staff of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA).

"We have nothing to do with politics and political claims," he further told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday.

Hoth was reacting to news reports quoting anonymous security sources alleging an attempted coup by senior government officials intending to topple the country’s leadership under president Salva Kiir. An allegation Kiir publicly dismissed on Monday.

SPLA military sources say Paul and fellow senior SPLA member, Marial Nuor, both of whom are now in detention, "have long been controversial figures. Their names have always appeared in illegal detention and torture of their opponents," it was claimed.

Hoth denied to Sudan Tribune the arrest and the foiled military coup.

"I am not aware of the arrest. These are just wishful thinking of enemies of peace and stability of South Sudan". As for president Kiir, he was reacting to increasing and quickly spreading rumours of the alleged failed coup attempt, he added.

He described the reports as reminiscent of the “Sudanese media that report lies and allegations without verifying authenticity of the information they receive”.

In his speech last Monday at the celebration of Martyr Day in Juba, Hoth reaffirmed the neutrality of the South Sudanese army to any political activities and leadership and said it is the only constitutionally recognised national army tasked with the duty to defend the country with impartiality

"I want to assure our government and the people of the Republic of South Sudan that, as the SPLA strives to become a professional and accountable military, it is fully committed to the principles of democracy which ensures that it is a non-political and non-partisan military which is subordinate to the civil institutions of the Republic of South Sudan, Hoth said.

The top military officers also assured the public of the readiness of the army to contribute to the building of the new nation in providing adequate security and safety.

He accused the army of neigbouring Sudan, with which they have clashed in several places months prior to a widely condemned clash in the oil producing area of Panthou, aka Heglig, of having killed innocent civilians through air raids and surprised ground incursions in the recent past.

Major General Andrea Dominic, who commands fifth division of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army in Western Bahr el Ghazal State, equally, in a separate interview with Sudan Tribune, abhorred attacks by the Sudanese armed forces and affirmed commitment of the country’s army to defend the territorial integrity of the new nation.

    Mr. Hoth Mai, you deny the truth and truth will reveal itself. Why is Mac Paul in prison? Why are you covering the truth while some officers are in Jail? Mr. Hoth don’t let your mind be corrupted like other guys in the government. You have been nice since the inception of SPLA/SPLM. You kept yourself away from NYANGATISM and now you are covering the dirty lies of Barghazel government. SAY TRUTH.

    Targeting Influential senior SPLA officers was meant to disappoint the mean stream SPLM/A and attempt to divide the system. This is a work of enemies especialy the one within. I told you yesterday that Salva Kiir need to be observance for romurs because wolfs are arround him.If coup occur it can not occur from Dinka but from traitors and Nyagats.

        Man you are just an empty vessel.Mac Paul fought in many battles but you didn’t know because Nyuon and Riek were against the SPLA. For example, Mac Paul was among the comanders who planned invasion of SAF from Parajok to Ashwa. Him, Deng Aguang Atem,Deng Leek(Dengmadot) and many more. So, did your tribe(Nuer) freed us? We were fighting Jalaba while you were used against Dinka.

    SPLA has destroyed s.sudan as it tries hard to fight a loosing battle with sudan while it pays no attention to domestic issues. With half the population hungry, corruption and the manys problems with no solution in sight, a military coup is inevitable. Hilary clintons visit is doomed to fail because it is too late.

    The Nuer (the only threat to Dinka Kingdom in the South) patience for their unquestionable love to the mother land (South Sudan) gave Dinka all the opportunity they needed to expand their power in the South.

    to all the Dinka Bor readers the rumours seem to have been pre-meditated move, because the secret a gender is to make sure all the senior officers from Bor are remove from the government such that they loot government resources without any one questioning them, if not that than why should those people hate Bor when they have not attack or victimise any community in the history of Sudan.

They are "Tha luuk ke Medina or Jokeys of towns, biscuits or cakes eaters." They are not milk drinkers/traditional food eaters. They call themselves Bor Dinka or Greater Bor their though.

        Of course as you said the arrest of Gen. Mac Paul is confirmed. But was he arrested because of coup attempt as rumored is because of something else like the kidnapping of Deng Athuai. This is what we can find out as readers. But others from Bor tried hard to deny his arrest. That doesn’t help. Do they not care about his arrest and the cause?
