Anger over President's Order to Army General Whose Daughter Died in Moi Girls Fire

This order is crude and inhuman

Malong, who is under house arrest, pleaded with South Sudan President Salva Kiir to allow him to make his way into the country for DNA testing but was blocked.

Divulging the information Malong’s enraged wife told Amsterdam-based Radio Tamazuj that it was unfair for Kiir to restrict her husband from attending to their deceased daughter.

According to the wife, the General became sick after Kiir turned down his request.

"His blood pressure shot up when President Kiir rejected his request to travel to Kenya’s capital,” Malong’s wife was quoted by a local daily in the country.

Family sources earlier told a local daily that Malong’s daughter identified as Alakiir Malong was residing in the burnt dormitory, where students died.

“We have been told she’s gone. It’s only a matter of formalities in Nairobi before they give us the body,” the family source was quoted as saying.

Malong’s wife went further to condemn the Government noting that it should file charges against him instead of restricting his movements.

Gen. Malong was sacked via a presidential decree that was announced on national television by Kiir.

Reports indicated that he was planning a coup against President Kiir’s Government but was later arrested.

However, Defence Minister Kuol Manyang Juuk is quoted by Reuters as saying that Malong is being held for security reasons.

“He was not arrested, but he [is] confined. There are no charges against him,” Juuk stated.
