September 21, 2016 (RUMBEK) – At least 30 members of South Sudan’s armed
opposition faction (SPLM-IO) in Egypt have declared their allegiance the
country’s First Vice President, Taban Deng Gai.

The group’s leader in Egypt, Makeuy Nyang confirmed the move.

“We affirm our support and fully stand with the new leader of the people
under the wise leadership of General Taban Deng Gai in the peace process,”
said Nyang.

“We declare our support for a just peace that achieves the aspiration our
people,” he stressed.

Gai was elected South Sudan’s acting First Vice President in July, days
after SPLM-IO chairman, Riek Machar fled the capital, Juba.

Machar described Gai’s appointment as illegal and accused the latter of
trying to defect to the ruling party (SPLM) led by President Salva Kiir.
