Shilluk militia generals sit on floor before King as their traditions demand (Photo)

The current king of the Shilluk, a former banker, presides at his rainy-season court in Malakal.

Well they say “put some respek on my name” and this is exactly what evidently played out in the recent Shilluk conference in Chollo Kingdom of Western Nile state.

A number of Shilluk militia generals including notorious and gigantic Gen. Johnson Olony were all pictured sitting on floor before their traditional king Kwongo Dak Padiet in a sign of respect to traditional leader who was sitting on his throne.

The picture was taken at a recent Shilluk conference aimed at uniting numerous militia generals to ”fight” the central government in Juba with a common goal.

The generals at the meeting included Riek allied Johnson Olony, Johannes Okiech and Jokino Fidele among others.
