February 14, 2017 (SSB) — According to unverified report from The Upper Nile Times website, President Kiir is said to have compared Thomas Cirillo to Riek Machar, saying he will return just like Riek Machar defected and then returned in 2002 and 2016.
“They all went and came back during the war. Gen Thomas Cirilo will still come back” President Kiir reportedly said.
The president is further alleged to have accused leaders of other communities “of not participating in the war to liberate South Sudan and instead involve in ‘running from Jalaba and to SPLA and back”’.
“There are communities who didn’t fight the war. Some were hiding in Ethiopia others were hiding in Congo and Uganda when the rest of us were fighting Jalaba. And when they know that we are winning, they came.”
