Here is a statement from the rebels:

Heavy fighting that had erupted among Presidential Guards (Tiger) at Giada Barracks south of Juba town in the morning of 5-3- 2014 continued overnight.

Intermittent and sporadic gunfire rang out in different neigbourhoods of the capital with specific locations being targetted.

Pro-government Nuer Generals from Fangak County in Jonglei State were attacked at Tongpiny residential area west of Juba International Air port.


Unknown number of Nuer civilains were deliberately killed by Government troops during the day and last night.

New information has emerged indicating that the fighting was not only caused by a mere pay dispute as reported in the media.

In fact, some units from the Presidential Guards and Commandos mutineed in direct protest against UPDF’s involvement and favours they receive at thier expense.

SPLA soldiers complained of being neglected and spent three months without being paid salaries as well as do not get food rations whereas thier counterparts from UPDF get paid huge salaries, daily allowances, food rations and compensations in an event of death or injury.

Some elements from the Presidential Guards, Commandos and SPLA as a whole have decided to resist any further deployment of UPDF saying thier presence had become a source of misery and disgrace.

Meanwhile, evidence of cluster bombs being used by UPDF against Lou-Nuer’s Pamai and Wech-Kol cattle Camps in Uror County in Jonglei State on 26th February, 2nd and 3rd March 2014 have emerged as shown:

1. 17 people among them women and children were killed.

2. 23 wounded.

3. 187 cows killed.

4. 25, 000 people displaced
