The Former Detainees (FDs) have nominated Deng Alor, John Luk Jok and Cirino Hiteng as Ministers in the proposed TGONU as per the (ARCISS).
If one is nominated for any constitutional post in the Republic of South Sudan as per the constitution and for that matter ARCISS, there is a criteria that must be fulfilled in order to qualify for that position. Below are some of the traits that are expected:
1. One must be of Good Moral Character;
2. Have not been dismissed due to incompetence;
3. Have never been convicted of any offence involving Fraud and Dishonesty.
Deng Alor obviously fails the qualification test miserably if the above mentioned criterion is strictly enforced. Deng was dismissed from his position as the Minister of Cabinet Affairs due to fraud and dishonesty. He was complicit in the corrupt purchase of Fire Extinguishing equipment that cost the nation more than 9 million dollars.
If it wasn’t for the intervention of the Kenyan government who froze the account which only had part of the money; this monies would have been lost forever. The stolen money was eventually fully repaid back to the government by Deng and his cronies.
Deng awarded hefty contracts to his Ethiopian wife and her cronies without following any government procurement processes, and these companies didn’t have the capabilities to be awarded the contracts had they followed the right procurement procedures.
Deng built one of the most expensive apartment estates in South Sudan close to Jebel Kujur and he is rumored to have numerous houses in California, Ethiopia and Kenya; this begs the million dollar question: where did he get the money from???
Those of JMEC, IGADD, Troika et al are fully aware of these transgressions committed by Deng Alor yet they have decided to turn a blind eye, this clearly demonstrates their hypocrisy and further shows to the people of South Sudan that the international community has a hidden agenda for South Sudan that is definitely not for the interest of the masses.
I would like to call on the ministerial vetting committee in the National Legislative Assembly to do the needful and prevent this corrupt individual from getting any constitutional post in the TGONU.
To the FDs, please nominate someone else in his place.
