The March 26, 2021 order also saw General Dickson Gatluak Joak appointed Deputy Chief of Staff for Administration and Finance, General Agany Deng Baak as Deputy Chief of General Staff for Operations, General Philip Okuot Obich as Deputy Chief of General Staff for Military Moral Orientation and General Emmanuel Majur Majak as Director of Military Intelligence.
