On 16 May 1983, a group of mutineers from the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) opened fire in a barracks near Bor and would form the core of SPLA.
Colonel John Garang de Mabior was sent to quell the rebellion but instead became its leader). So I have a song for that day which is on album too and many more.
