Accusations Emerge That South Sudan Warlord Paul Malong Paid Sh600K For Cleansing Interview As Kenyans Slams Jeff Koinange For Granting The Interview

Published

on

Jeff interviewing general Malong.

Accusations are now flying that the former  South Sudanese army chief of staff Paul Malong could have bribed his way to the screens for a ‘rebuttal’ interview following an expose done by Africa Uncensored exposing his role in looting and causing destruction and blood bath in his country.

Malong strongly denied allegations of embezzlement of public funds or committing atrocities against civilians during the five-year civil war in the country.

A recent documentary released by The Sentry and echoed by Africa Uncensored ‘The Profiteers’ once again reiterated accusations against Malong who is under UN and US sanctions about his wealth and his involvement in the war crimes during the conflict.

 

In a 25 minute interview with the Kenya Citizen TVreleased on Sunday, Malong further said he didn’t take advantage from his position as Governor of Northern Bahr El-Ghazal or profited from his position when he was the chief of staff.

“They did not tell us where I got the money,” he said. He further said the documentary and those who accused him have to prove that he has stolen money, give the details of these accounts and the country where these funds are deposited

“I’m not a rich man I’m just taking care of myself and my family. I have nothing,” he said.

“Northern Bahr El-Ghazal is not an oil producing state and everybody knows that,” so why the accuse me, he wondered.

Regarding the time when he was the army chief of staff, he said the minister of defence is the one who plans the army budget while the chief of staff is the implementer.

I use what is given to me for certain jobs that I’m going to do. if people say I took the tents and sold them that may be, I took ammunition and guns and sold them that may be, (…) but I do not get cash,” he said.

The same for the war crimes and atrocities, Malong said he executed the orders he received from his military hierarchy the army commander in chief President Salva Kiir.

“I was not operating independently,” he repeated.

Also, he dismissed any responsibility for the killing of civilians in Juba following the clashes at the South Sudanese presidency in July 2016.

“During the J1 fight, I was in control of the army more than any time,” he said stressing that the clashes ended at Jebel Kogor.

When asked about the rape of women in Juba, he said it was done by security soldier but not his army.

“I know what happened. It was in one of the hotels and one of the ladies said that the person who had raped her is an agent of security soldier and his name was written,” he said.

General Malong and Malong Jr

On the UN sanction, Malong said “they are missing the point. If they speak about the cause of the war, the cause of war is Salva and Machar. Whatever I did in the army was just orders,” he said again.

The old friend of the South Sudanese president avoided criticising Salva Kiir for his sack from the position of the army chief of staff.

However, Malong said that he was disappointed when Kiir accused him of asking Kenyan, Ugandan presidents and even Ethiopian prime minister to support him to overthrow Salva Kiir.

The South Sudanese tycoon Lawrence Lual Malong Yor Jr. took part in the interview to explain that General Malong was not his father and he is not his relative.

He and General Malong said they would pursue those who continue to repeat such claims in order to prove the corruption of the former South Sudanese official.

It is ironical that General Malong ‘accepted’ for an interview with Jeff to clear his name yet he refused to give John Namu audience during the compilation of documentary to comment on the accusations.

Documentary ‘The Profiteers’ was set to air on KTN but it was cancelled on the last minute in what is speculated to have been as a result of orders given to the station to edit out Malong’s name who was adversely mentioned in the three parts documentary.

It only went to show how well connected and powerful Malong is.

New information emerging is the general could’ve bribed his way to the tv after parting with Sh.600,000 or above. According Steve Juma, a journalist, he was approached by unnamed diplomat who offered sh600K for an interview with the accused general.

Steve says he declined the offer but wasn’t surprised to watch the request materialize when Malong was hosted on Citizen TV.

The allegations.

The controversial interview has been labeled a cleansing attempt and has brought Jeff Koinange under harsh criticism.

Itumbi Shows Up In Court To Prove Strong Friendship With Maribe Has An Handshake With ‘Rival’ Jowie

Published

on

Itumbi shaking hands with Jowie.

If there’s anyone who has stood at least publicly with Jacque Maribe since she got arrested and charged for the murder of Monica, that person is Dennis Itumbi.

The two are rumored to have dated before given several intimate occasions that they shared publicly including a surprise birthday party while she was live on air.

Itumbi has been consistent in standing with Jacque who together with his fiancé Joseph Irungu, have been now jointly charged for murder. The government’s digital strategist has not shied away from expressing his feelings and heartwarming messages meant for his friend Maribe.

While many of her friends have not been seen publicly expressing their support neither showing up at the court, Itumbi and Maribe’s father are the ones captured on camera having gotten closer to the accused and in court during the proceedings in solidarity.

It was a show when Itumbi had the popular handshake with his ‘rival’ Jowie In Court. Jowie is the prime suspect in the murder. A teary Maribe was overwhelmed with emotions when his ‘ex’ showed up to give her moral support.

All factors aside, one thing is clear that we’re surrounded with fake friends who’ll stick around when things are merry and vanish when things go south. You don’t need many friends, keep the small circle with loyal and worthy friends. You need friends like Itumbi who stick around regardless of circumstances.

President Museveni with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian at the Statehouse.

American Rapper Kanye West who considers himself the best artist of recent times and who doesn’t shy from courting controversy has visited one of the many dictators in the continent Museveni.

Kanye who’s in Uganda with his family, apparently bought out a resort and built an outdoor studio in the bush where he’s currently recording a studio album which he says is African inspired hence the decision to record it in Uganda.

Kim receives a gift from Museveni.

Museveni hosts the couple.

The rapper took time off to meet the country’s president Museveni who wrote on his Twitter , “I welcome American entertainment stars Kanye West and @KimKardashian to Uganda. I held fruitful discussions with the duo on how to promote Uganda’s tourism and the arts. I thank Kanye for the gift of white sneakers. Enjoy your time in Uganda. It is the true Pearl of Africa.”

Museveni is on the spot for dictatorship and reigning terror on his opponents, recently, the bully president nearly killed Bobi Wine who also happens to be a musician and now an MP. Fearing for his growing influence and popularity in Uganda especially amongst the youths, Museveni faked an incident that ended in Bobi’s driver getting killed in what is assumed to have been a bullet meant for the young legislator.

Bobi Wine was arrested, detained and tortured at military barracks where he was severely injured and had to seek special treatment in the US. He was charged with trumped up treason charges.

Kanye’s visit comes only days after the controversial rapper visited the Oval Office, Whitehouse and held meeting with Donald Trump. Kanye in his custom conditions, went on a ranting spree addressing several issues including the red hat. His visit to meet Trump has been criticized mostly by the black community who say Trump’s policies are stifling to the community and by Yeezy aligning with him, he’s considered a traitor.

During his visit to Museveni accompanied with his wife, Kanye gifted the 74 year old president with his Yeezy line sneakers.
