We, the south Sudanese students association in Kenya’s have learn a document circulating in the social media purported to have document by us condemning a meeting of the opposition with Gen.Paul Malong trying to unify the opposition forces against the government of South Sudan.

In effect,we would like to distance ourselves from this letter written by non existence people who has never been a part of the students leadership.South Sudanese in Kenya have a Association not union in the First place.The current Chairman is Mr.Aliandro Lotok and Secretary General is Mr.Tito Awan.It has come as a surprise to see how the currently war being wage against General Paul Malong by a clique in Juba is moving to the students fraternity.We are therefore condemning this act of forgery.
The South Sudanese students Association of Kenya’s in their first release in May 2017, immediately after the dismissal of General Paul Malong,has asked the government to treat General Malong with much respect for if it wasn’t his efforts,the current war would have cause you the leadership you seem to protect rather than people.We are dismay to see that non of the liberator have now been displace and replace by pro-NCP agent.Has it currently stand,we might not predict but President Salva Kiir will regret this action in the nearest future.
Once Against,we can comment on the purported meeting of the opposition because it has it come to public domain,however we urged the opposition to be more objective as the push for change in the country.Their division is causing unnecessary suffering to our population.
Signed.Tito Awan

Secretary General

The South Sudan Student Union in Kenya is profoundly disturbed to learn that on Thursday January 4th, 2018, a meeting between Gen. Paul Malong Awan and the leaders of the opposition groups took place at Rebecca Nyandeng’s residence here in Nairobi.
The meeting was aimed to unify all the anti-peace elements to topple the TGoNU and was attended by the followings:
1. Gen. Paul Malong Awan, Former Chief of General Staff of the SPLA.
2. Amb. Telar Ring Deng, South Sudan Ambassador to Russia and the Senior Advisor to Gen. Paul Malong.
3.  Gen. Oyay Deng Ajak, Former Chief of General Staff and Former Minister of National Security, Investment and Regional Cooperation.
4. Col. Joseph Bangasi Bakasoro, Former Governor of Western Equatoria State.
5. Gen. Mac Paul, Former SPLA Director General of Military Intelligence.
6. Other opposition officers whose names have not yet been revealed.
In order to speed up the downfall of the TGoNU, the followings were agreed in the meeting:
1. Gen. Paul Malong Awan promised that his Aweil boys in the SPLA army in Greater Equatoria will join forces with Gen. Thomas Cirilo’s NAS to attack Juba;
2. Gen. Oyay Deng Ajak will go to Khartoum via Addis Ababa to meet General Samora Yunis, Chief of Staff of Ethiopian Defense Forces, before proceeding to Khartoum in order to persuade Ethiopian Defense Forces to provide military logistics to the forces that will attack Juba;
3. After one week, Gen. Paul Malong Awan and Gen. Thomas Cirilo will fly to Khartoum to meet Gen. Johnson Olony, Gen. Agaany Abdel-Bhagi Ayii, Dr. Lam Akol, Gen. Bapiny Monytuil Wejang and Gen. Peter Gatdet to unify their forces to attack Aweil, Aweil East, Ruweng and Northern Liech states.
We, the South Sudan Student Union in Kenya, condemn in the strongest term possible this new military alliance between Gen. Paul Malong and opposition groups which will undermine the IGAD High-level Revitalization Forum scheduled to resume in February.
The people of South Sudan are tired of war and they need peace. It is unacceptable that Gen. Paul Malong would join the opposition groups to topple the Government because he was removed from his position. The people of South Sudan cannot be made to suffer because of positions.
The South Sudan Student Union in Kenya is appealing to IGAD, AU, UN and Troika to impose sanctions on Gen. Paul Malong, Gen. Oyay Deng Ajak, Gen. Thomas Cirilo and Rebecca Nyandeng Garang for their plan to disrupt the IGAD High-level Revitalization Forum. The international community should not allow Gen. Paul Malong Awan to get away with crimes he has been committing against civilians since December, 15, 2013.
