“I will relocate to go and stay in Yei, and all the operations that will go out will go under my directives and my supervision.”
Kiir’s remarks followed the government and opposition forces in parts of Yei River state.
“The new slogan which people are now singing is that this army has become a tribal army,” he said. “Why is it composed of Dinka? But where will I get people from if the people of Equatoria [region] have refused to join the army and Riek Machar has rebelled with his Nuer people? So where will I get other nationalities from?”
