JUBA – A Juba-based South Sudanese preacher is claiming that President Salva Kiir’s presidency along with that of his first deputy Dr. Riek Machar Teny will end by July 9th, 2021, the day when South Sudan marks ten years of independence.

“By divine kingship authority, I decree and declare that the time of the current President H.E Salva Kiir Mayardit and his Vice President Dr. Riek Machar Teny and all movements who are fighting for power is finished,” Chol foresees.

The South Sudanese church leader who was once arrested over COVI-19 protocol violations said the Independence Day will mark two important events one of which is the farewell for Salva Kiir and Dr. Riek Machar.

“This means the independence celebration for this year will mark two big events; Farewell to H.E. Salva Kiir Mayardit and Vice President Dr. Riek Machar Teny and thanksgiving for their good service to the nation for the last 37 years of struggle, reception, and welcoming of the new young president for the Republic of South Sudan,” Chol said.

“Because of this, I call all the country [sic] to give thanks to God, and to forgive one another and forget the past and be ready for the new beginning and new government,” he further added.

Current economic situation needs a sharper reformist: David Deng is the panacea

Hon. David Deng should be considered as an old broom capable of cleaning the mess in the Financial Institution, the Ministry of Finance given his wealth of experience in dealing with international monetary policy makers. South Sudan doesn’t need gambling with its merger resources especially at this critical point in time.

The country needs re-nursing after having undergone multiple but severe injurious stages consequent to senseless wars and despicable economic meltdown enforced by insults on the economic pillars such as oil sector stresses that led to its shutdown and the then dwindling market prices.

There has been a patterned apathy in other sectors with Agriculture having been neglected yet it is the lifeline of a society that is so much endowed with fertile land and constant rains like our country.

The revenue collection mechanisms and the best monetary policies have since been endangered by either lack of experienced workforce or willing citizens that serve with dedication and honesty or just as a matter of neglect.

All these have rendered nervy the country’s monetary policies and consequently infuriating the international monetary policy makers like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The exasperation of such organizations, whether justified or not has a negative bearing on the Republic of South Sudan.

The economic pillars of our country are not in any synchronized form. They operate in such a way that whatever revenue that is generated doesn’t benefit the developmental policies that have been devised through the right policy making channels? The citizens are the collateral in terms of damages incurred.

While the country contends with all the bottlenecks in all their parameters, it is imperative that its survival whether we like it or not is the immediate economic sector reform. There is no exit route as running away from the reality is not conclusive in that we are not an isolated entity but part of the world.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) as reported by the East African says, support to South Sudan’s ailing economy is pegged on the government’s willingness to open to an accountability probe.

The IMF made it clear that it wants President Salva Kiir’s government to account for past loans, prosecute the corrupt and improve financial discipline and transparency in use of public resources, especially earnings from oil.

With country being conditioned by International Monetary bodies to undertake certain measures, fleeing from such strong organizations is never the best option.

The panacea to this is giving the opportunity to people who are capable of handling responsibilities with utmost dedication. This is where Hon. David Deng Athorbei beats all. His nationalistic physiognomies are not emerging today. He has for a long period portrayed commitment to the national service. He was generating funds for the SPLM/SPLA during the liberation struggle and later beats Bashir and his wise men in their plan to sabotage South Sudan’s referendum by denying funds.

The current Minister is not a bad man but the high pressures emanating from failing economic and which are being aggravated by the hardcore push from the international arenas need seasoned SPLM cadre of high resolve and international adaptability. This is where qHon. David Deng remains a champion.

President Salva should consider this appeal as Hon. Agak Achuil cannot handle the difficult tasks at hand. He will only be dropping an absurd and embarrassing blunder each time and then run to the press and blame the media for having been misquoted.

He cannot reform anything, he will rather be pushing the government against the wall or put it between the rock and the hard place. His recent utterances on oil sales will recalcitrantly haunt the country and your leadership.

Give Hon. David Deng a chance because he is a gifted leader; especially in the area of policy formulation and its smooth implementation.

Fellow South Sudanese,

The formation of the South Sudan United Front and Army (SSUF/A) emerged out of the need to address the real problems of our peoples. It was a respond to the wailing cry of our civil population in the refugee camps, internally displaced persons and those affected by violence and the absence of rule of law.

Fellow South Sudanese,

You’ll bear witness that our Movement the South Sudan United Front and Army failed to respond to these ills. A chain is as strong as its weakest link — our Movement is besieged by a greater evil force than the one we had imagined to fight.  The evil of mismanagement, lack of direction and pettiness point to the apparent lack of leadership at the Movement’s top brass.

We the undersigned have and out of necessity opted to part ways with the current leadership of Chairman Gen. Paul Malong Awan Anei; and announce to you the formation of the South Sudan United Front/Army Proper (SSUFAP) as our new umbrella. It is our strong conviction that the prevailing circumstances of our revolution have fundamentally changed. The South Sudan United Front and Army Proper (SSUFAP) therefore seeks and affirms its commitment to the nonviolent approach as an alternative to end conflict in our Republic. Protracted wars only exacerbate the suffering our civil population.

It is our hope that the government of South Sudan will reciprocate this good will in kind. 

Representatives to the DECLARATION:

  1. Military Wing

Maj. Gen. Peter Kuol Makuer, DCOG for Logistics; Chief of Operations (Aq)

Brig. Gen. Emmanuel Majur Majak, Director for Military Intelligence; Commander for Special Operations

Col. Akol Akol Pel, Military Spokesperson (SSUF/A)

  1. Political wing

Cde. Makoi Majak, Chairperson Youth League (SSUF/A)

Maj. Gabriel Maker Mathieth, SSUF Youth League Uganda Chapter
