Developing story: In an unfortunate turn of events, president Kiir’s largely notorious, uneducated and ill-trained Tiger Division officers executed a captain last night, whose only fault is that he hails from Dinka Bor, and was a perfect target for vengeance following the death of the Lual Akok (whom the president denies as not being his son)
The young captain, Manyang Chol is the eighth victim to fall in the last 36 hours.
Our sources reported that the Manyang was shot dead by the soldiers he commanded in Sherikat, the unfortunate incident occurred in front of the Gumbo Primary school last night.
The tragedy appears to be one of deadliest episode of violence amongst the troop in recent weeks, especially by “tiger soldiers”.
There have been reports of this President Salva Kiir’s presidential guard in some of the checkpoints that are dotted around Juba stopping people several times a day, asking them each time to get out of their car and often confiscating their belongings or demanding money.
