Two local companies, Zamaam and Nile Investment Partners mentioned in the recent Sentry Report of having undercover activities with the National Security Services have dismissed the report.
In separate letters by the management of the respective companies who the report linked to General Manasa Machar Bol, they deny working with or for the NSS.
“Our Article of Association & other legal documents does not have have any links to Machar Bol. He is neither a share holder or a director in any of our company,” reads excerpts from the letters addressed to the Sentry and copied to the Ministry of Justice, RSS.
The letters dated 13th December and 15th December came a day after the NSS dismissed the Sentry Report as baseless and untrue at a press conference.
While reiterating not having links to NSS both companies on their part say they are ready to cooperate with the Sentry Researchers to clear their names if contacted.
“We are willing to review the evidences of the Sentry if they contact us,” said the statement by Nile Investment Partners.
The letters obtained by the two companies obtained by Hot in Juba surface a day after the NSS accused the Sentry and its backers of a wide campaign to undermine the peace and security in the country.
While faulting the report for relying on third party information without contacting them directly for clarification, the NSS said, “the Sentry has failed to consider the recent reforms within the security sector and the legal proceedings against individuals who are alleged to have committed crimes or disciplinary breaches.”
Below are the letters by both companies:
