Brief Report: JUL/23/2013, SSN;
From SSTV: Apparently and finally, after a long wait and delay, President Kiir of the Republic of South Sudan, today, issued a number of decrees, the first concerned the immediate removal of his deputy, Dr. Riek Machar, as vice president of the nation.
Kiir also issued a second decree dissolving the entire cabinet of ministers and the numerous deputy ministers and instructed the under-secretaries of these ministries to run the ministries until further notice.
Surprisingly, the last decree pertains to the formation of an investigation committee to investigate the SPLM party Secretary-general, Pagan Amum, first for ‘alleged mismanagement of the party, and secondly for financial irregularities and finally, for insubordination and for opposing the Chairman’s decision to suspend former ministers of finance and of cabinet affairs, both for corruption and allegedly stealing nearly US 8 million dollars in a dubious business deal.’
The nation at large and particularly, the southsudannation.com early awaits the evolving developments.
The South Sudanese people are rightly left wondering why, for instance, did the president not also dismiss the governors of the other eight states, or the chairs of the redundant commissions that are needlessly consuming valuable resources that would go for delivery of services to the people, especially, now that oil export is soon to be cut off by jellaba north Sudan.
