Following the labeling of ex-SPLA Chief of General Staff by Presidential Spokesperson Ateny Wek as “a rebel”, the former was quick to rubbish him back saying the Presidential Spokesperson is “a nobody and unfit to pronounce my name let alone label me as a rebel.”
Just days after the launching of the first drone surveillance system in Juba, and the installation of the 11 CCTV cameras originally intended to curb crime, Saakam has learned the scheme has been expanded to track down ‘domestic rebels’ such as illegal sex workers, sinning and adulterous husbands and wives getting all illegal in hotels and brothels across the capital.
Another day and another new republican order in the saga that is South Sudan. This time Saakam has discovered that it has sealed the fate of the extended house-arrest of Gen. Paul Malong by making it official. And it is being described by the many spouses of the detainee as ‘denying him his human rights [to bear future baby Malongs]’ as the order restricts all conjugal visits unless approved in advance by the Chief of Defence Forces of the SPLA, a holy blessing by the SPLA parish-priest and the latest advice from the SPLA-appointed family-planning expert.
A recent Presidential Decree ordering the ‘return-by-choice’ or face ‘deportation’ of non-Equatorian cattle from Jubek State is said to have been erroneously re-issued and re-broadcasted, and the Presidency has come out to publicly correct that mess.
