Mabior says SPLM-IO is predominantly Nuer-owned
October 30, 2020 (Thessherald)–The main opposition group, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-In-Opposition (SPLM-IO) is predominantly dominated by the Nuer tribe, a senior member of the SPLM-IO, Mabor Garang de Mabior, alludes.
“When the dark clouds of 2013 gathered and the bloody storm of December hit, we all ran for shelter in the “unfinished luak” called (IO),” said Mabior Garang de Mabior in a comment dated October 13, 2020.
“The storm has now subsided and the people who own the luak [ referring to the SPLM-IO] have become known and they will remain with their luak. We who sought shelter there must not be confused and think the luak belongs to us. It was a place for all of us to shelter from a deadly storm.”
“The owners of the luak have said the storm is over and everyone must go to where they came from.”
Mabior is the eldest son of the late Garang de Mabior, the founding father of the current ruling party – the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM).
He’s also held different political positions in the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-IO (SPLM-IO).
