Kiir calls on Malong to prove his non-rebellion

Southern Sudan President Silva Kiir Mayardit on Monday called on former army chief of staff General Paul Malong to return to the country, saying that the response he received from the latter would clarify whether Malong intends to rebel.

“You listened to the tape and you heard the sound, you can tell me whether it is the real tradition or sound of Paul Malong,” Salva Kiir said at a meeting with the Dinka Senate.

“I know Malong and his voice and I am telling him to return to the country if what is said is not true, I will give you time to talk to him, but not more than two weeks, and if you fail, let me know.”

In remarks after the meeting, presidential spokesman Atene Wick Atini said the leaked audio tapes were evidence of subversive activities involving the former chief of staff, noting that Malong ordered his followers to launch attacks outside the capital Juba, violating the cease-fire.

“I will have to make a decision because there is a threat to my life and my family,” he said.

Malong was granted permission to leave the country for health reasons after the mode of the Dinka elders November 20.
