H.E. Kiir Mayardit defused that intention by opening SPLA files and ranks entering the continued militias till we reached the rebranding process that brought this Nation. The attempted coups 2013 and 2016 were difficult but President Kiir defeated the black hearts with his white heart full of forgiveness.
