TORIT, 14 November 2017 [Gurtong] – Aharanya Dominic said that he was ready to join the government in the pursuit of peace in the country.

“Though my mind was already made up to return home, I was already leaving the rebel base and headed to Ayaci on November 6 2017 but on my way, I was caught and arrested and taken to Magwi SPLA Headquarters where I was arrested, investigated and later transferred to Torit. I am ready to work with the government. Outside there where I have left, life is terrible. Hunger among difficult things," Brigadier Aharanya told Journalists at the state Palace on Sunday in Torit.

Governor Tobiolo Alberio Oromo told the Press that he instructed the army Commander in Torit to immediately transfer the captive to Torit.

Aharanya said that most of the rebel soldiers are ready and willing to join the government but are awaiting orders from their leader, Dr. Riak Machar to leave the bush.

Brig.Aharanya left the government in July 2017 while he was a Wildlife Officer with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

He said his decision to return and choose to stay with the government is final
