Last week, unconfirmed reports indicated that Mach groups in the Ugandan capital, Kampala, saying such reports were âfabricatedâ.

The former powerful intelligence chief accused some individuals he did not, however, of trying to s poil his personality and professionalism for creating insurgency instead of focusing on real leadership issues.
âThe way out of the seemingly unending war in our country, I believe is not more rebellion. It requires mindful leadership, and peaceful discourse to deliver our people for these debacles,â stressed Mach.
âIt is clear that there is a linkage between war and disasters besetting our peopleâ, he added.
The called on the South Sudanese population to be mindful of the conflict and urge them to mainly focus on bringing peace rather than dwelling on a war which has caused suffering in the country.
