Director General of General Intelligence Service (GIS) Resigns from SPLA/M IO
Lt. General Samuel Mut Gai Dhap, the Director General of the General Intelligence Service (GIS) and a member of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A IO Kd), has announced his resignation with immediate effect.
In a press release addressed to H.E. Simon Gatwech Dual Hoth, Chairman and Commander in Chief of SPLM/A IO Kd, Lt. General Gai Dhap cited his increasing personal commitments as the reason for stepping down from his position.
Expressing sadness, Lt. General Gai Dhap acknowledged that the demands of his role as the Director General of GIS, coupled with his responsibilities as a member of the movement, have become too great for him to effectively fulfill.
In light of this, he believed it was best to make room for someone who could devote the necessary time and energy to the position.
During his tenure, SPLA/M IO Kd witnessed notable achievements over the past three years. Lt. General Gai Dhap expressed his pride in the accomplishments of the movement and expressed confidence in its continued success in the future.
The resignation of the former Director General of GIS, who is also a founding member of SPLA/M 10 Kd, will undoubtedly leave a void in the intelligence service.
The SPLM/A IO Kd leadership is expected to initiate a selection process to find a suitable replacement who can carry forward the vision and goals of the movement.
This development has garnered attention within the political and military circles of Sudan, as the General Intelligence Service plays a crucial role in gathering and analyzing sensitive information to ensure national security.
Lt. General Gai Dhap’s resignation has been formally communicated to all units and relevant offices within the movement, including the Head of Political Offices and the Chief of General Staff (COGS).
As the SPLA/M IO Kd prepares for a transition in leadership within the General Intelligence Service, the future direction and effectiveness of the agency will be closely watched, as it continues to contribute to the overall security landscape of Sudan.
