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.

The OLD General was too greedy on his looting and sharing – and paid the price for reckless steps.
The NEW General, one assumes, would be wiser in his looting and make the main chauffeur of the country well padded and happy. And — again, we assume — he will also take care of his foreign enablers happy too, so that his sudden ‘illness’ (or early retirement) would be well taken care of by stashing green papers far, far, far away from Africa.

Lastly, we wish the good people of the newly ‘independent, free, democratic’ country [Oh! Lord, forgive me! ] of South Sudan good luck in their everlasting voyage of search for their daily bread of survival.
