In unhealthy powerful competition between key elites in security sector, Dr. Benjamin Bol is fighting hard to bring in a lousy and indecisive Eng. Majak Arop as MD of Nilepet to replace Amuor Makeny, who Bol has been keeping and protecting until he gets a right candidate or his candidate is accepted. Many people have been confusing the public with false claims that NSS boss Gen. Akol Koor Kuch and VP Dr. James Wani Igga are the ones controlling and milking our oil and gas even none oil revenue but it has emerged clearly Bol Mel is the big dog exercising overwhelming powers of removing who is not loyal to him and replace with yes loyalists to give him enough space to control economic sector like he took the whole roads networks across the country while he is building nothing yearly.
A few weeks back, he fought hard against the wishes of many people, and he managed to recommend William Anyak Deng as the Undersecretary and got appointed as Undersecretary of the Ministry of Petroleum, replacing Molana Mayen Wol Jong who is a very good long serving administrator who worked hard and initiated so many policies and generated huge benefits in MoP such as staff welfare that includes insurance, support of food items to junior staff, clothing allowances, periodic allowances, training allowances and ensure national interests are protected.
This week, Dr. Benjamin Bol also recommended his state’s son Eng. Deng Lual to be appointed as DG of Exploration and Production Authority. Deng was appointed through a presidential decree to the surprise of many just to block the opinion of the Minister of Petroleum as Undersecretary agreed with Bol to do it that way.
Deng Lual is very junior to many DGs as he is Director in the Ministry of Petroleum, naming him as the most senior DG will create fight in MoP, oil sector at large and sabotage. Advisor Benjamin Bol Mel also, a few months back, tried to install Ngor Ngor Kuany as MD of Nilepet, but Bol was warned in J1 that either Kiir Yor and Bol, one must go if they want Nilepet. Then, Bol went and made peace with Amuor and told Amuor to bring Ngor Ngor as DG for Downstream, Nilepet, which Amuor did as Bol instructed him to do so. This is how the oil sector is politicised and that nothing good is expected.
Ngor Ngor Kuany is being prepared for MD of Nilepet in the future, and Deng Lual is also prepared for Undersecretary, Minsistry of Petroleum. This is what Bol Mel planned for.
Bol Mel, on a separate development, is also seen fighting Hon. Bak Chol, the Minister of Finance, over huge requests for indefinite roads claims despite the fact that the road construction is sickly moving very slowly, millions have already gone to him and nothing is done.
Bol Mel is also likely to replace Dr. Bak with his candidate of choice, people may rise against Bol if the president doesn’t stop his high_handed on economic Institutions, the country is not for Bol Mel alone, even Tut Kew was not doing it that way as Bol does.
Stay tuned for more updates.
