On the one hand, the information reports the death of two generals close to Machar, who denied Thursday that he had lost the leadership of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement in Opposition (SPLM I/O).
Spokesmen for the vice president insisted that they were high ranking military officers dependent on first lieutenant general Simon Gatwech Dual, who this week was declared acting leader of the party.
The versions say the clashes took place over the control of the SPLM I/O.
The vice president’s spokesperson added that in addition 27 rival troops were killed, an armored vehicle destroyed, a truck captured and more than 20 AK-47 assault rifles seized.
In both cases, the sources preferred not to disclose the names of the deceased, citing security reasons.
