The television channel also quoted sources from South Sudan government as saying that Machar
have taken a huge pile of military equipment in Jonglei State, which were sent to government forces the past month to confront rebels there.
The South Sudanese conflict started in 2013 when President Salva Kiir accused Machar
of a coup attempt.
, in a statement copied to the armed opposition's national external relations chairperson, Stephen Kuol sacked Yien Machar
Wang on Sunday.
The first deputy further tried in his speech to convince the IGAD leader that Riek Machar
was filing with efforts to use military action to rule the country, stating that Machar
did not need the National Dialogue.
The SPLA-IO under Dr Riek Machar
thanks them for their services and wishes them well in their quest.
Such brutal and sadistic behaviour of Riek Machar
must be condemned in the strongest terms possible.
In a statement sent to Sudan Tribune , Gai-led SPLM-IO group accused Machar
forces of attacking their military base in Nassir town.
Dickson blamed Machar
for his alleged mismanagement and nepotism but Machar
people say he was based in Addis Ababa and had no true link with the military on the grounds.
Colonel Dickson Gatluak Nyuot, Deputy military spokesperson of the Machar
-led opposition faction told Sudan Tribune that he has decided to join Gai's faction because Machar
has a lack of clear vision and objectives as well as a lack of clear chain of command in the Army.
