South Sudan appoints new chief of defense forces

JUBA — General James Ajonga Mawut Unguec Ajonga is the current South Sudanese Chief of Defense Forces. He was appointed by presidential order in May 2017, replacing General Paul Malong Awan, who left Juba after the announcement of his removal.

Malong later returned to Juba after being blocked from continuing with the journey to his home region of Aweil. After Malong failed to hand over the office, President Salva Kiir told his new general to assume his duties, and Ajonga took over the office without any briefing from his predecessor.
