The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-In-Opposition (SPLM-IO) in Arab Republic of Egypt has denied the widespread speculations that the opposition office in Egypt has switched allegiance to Kitgwang faction under the leadership of Gen. Simon Gatwech Dual.

Last week, a group that identified itself as SPLM-IO conducted a press conference in Cairo in which they switched their allegiance to Kitgwang declaration under the leadership of Gen. Simon Gatwech Dual and stated in their press release that they gained full support from opposition members in Egypt and neighboring North African countries..

In a statement seen by Thejubamirror news desk Gattiek Wichar, the SPLM-IO Chapter spokesman in Egypt denies the report.

“Dear supporters, members of the SPLM/A-IO movement under the First Vice President Dr. Riek Machar Teny, I would like to inform you that this document as attached below is not only white lie but it is also something which amount to crime because the self-proclaimed SPLM_IO representative in Egypt identified himself as Chukwan Phillip Achwil has forged our heading paper and this forgery must be investigated”,Cde Gattiek Wichar, SPLM-IO Chapter Spokesman in Egypt said.

“Hence, I would like to bring it into your attention that the SPLM/A-IO with all its structures in Egypt are still under full control of the First Vice President Dr. Riek Machar, Dr. Teny-Dhurgon is mentioned in the R-ARCSS and he has to stay until the elections are held”,he added.

He said they still owe special honor to senior opposition commander Gatwech Dual but advises him to disconnect with some political opportunists whose mission is to trade the name of Simon Gatwech Dual for their individual gains.

“We respect Gen. Simon Gatwech Dual as senior commander who fought many wars for the quest of freedom and we ask him at the same time to disengage himself with bunch of political opportunists who wants to use his name to achieve their political objectives”,Wichar emphasized.

“The SPLM/A-IO leadership in Egypt asks its entire members to remain committed to the implementation of the peace agreement and should not succumb to speculations and news spread widely by the enemies of peace in the country”, he added.

On 4th of August, 2021 Gen. Simon Gatwech Dual declared what he called Kitgwang declaration as SPLM/A-IO movement based in Magenis and announced himself as its ring leader. Last week he appointed Former Deputy Chairman of SPLM-IO, Henry Odwar as head of political wing.
