Bargaining with warlords

The choice of Nhial, a Tonj Dinka, is seen as a return of John Garang de Mabior's old guard, largely marginalised after the 2005 death of the SPLM's chief proponent of a politically secular, united 'New Sudan'...


The real dividing line

Like Lam Akol, Deng was chosen by the SPLM but unlike Lam, he had not split from its late Chairman, Colonel John Garang de Mabior, and is not cosy with the NC...


The main points of the Abyei Protocol

The then First Vice-President, Ali Osman Mohamed Taha, and the late Sudan People's Liberation Movement Chairman, Colonel John Garang de Mabior, signed the Principles of Agreement on Abyei on 26 May 2004 in Naivasha, Kenya...


The centre versus the rest

The late SPLM/A leader, Colonel John Garang de Mabior, insisted this was 'just the same as self-determination', not a claim widely believed by the area's Nuba majority...

Although John Garang fought to have the area ­ along with Southern Blue Nile and Abyei ­ considered part of the South in the CPA negotiations with Khartoum, the NC-NIF objected that these areas were part of the north (which they officially are)...

White Nile sees red in the south

Yet White Nile insisted that it had been awarded rights in unorthodox negotiations with Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon, a Nuer leader, and Rebecca Nyandeng de Mabior, the widow of Colonel John Garang de Mabior...

This was unwise, given the concerns of John Garang's then deputy, Salva Kiir Mayardit, now President of the Government of Southern Sudan (GOSS), made public at the Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army conference in December 2004, about unaccountable business deals contracted by senior SPLM/A members...


Muluzi on the record

His Deputy Information Minister, John Bande, accused Muluzi of telling 'lies' about his overseas visit to attract financial support for it; his press officer, Chikumbutso Mtumodzi, 'discovered' ten-year-old secret documents linking him to the late Colonel John Garang and his Sudan People's Liberation Army...


The Southern front reopens

We hear Salva's Chief of Defence Staff, Oyai Deng Ajak (a Shilluk and John Garang's son-in-law), had proposed that the SPLA 'remove' all SAF and militia forces from the South but Salva refused...
