A South Sudanese minister defected to the rebels, according to a letter seen by Reuters Friday, becoming the second high-level resignation this week in the war-ravaged nation.
Lieutenant General Gabriel Duop Nam, the minister of Labor, sent a one-page letter saying he would join the rebellion of former vice president Riek Machar.
"I reaffirm my full allegiance and commitment to the ... wise leadership of H.E. Dr. Riek Machar," he wrote.
