South Sudan's army chief General James Ajongo died in Cairo on Friday following a short illness, government spokesman Michael Makuei Lueth said.

"It is with a heavy heart that I announce the untimely death of Gen. James Ajongo Madut, SPLA army's chief of defense force," Lueth said.

Ajongo joined the Sudan People's Liberation Army, the formal name of the South Sudanese military, in 1983, when the SPLA was still a rebel group fighting for independence from Sudan.
