*Tension is at a peak among South Sudan security organizations as Kiir family members differed over who to replace time spy Chief Gen. Akol Koor between Gen. Majak Akec Malok and Charles Ciec Mayor.*

President Kiir has accepted to replace his long-term spy Chief Gen. Akol Koor after numerous consultations with top government officials. The president who left his official office prematurely yesterday afternoon and headed to his political nerve center ( Amarat residents ) for a private meeting with close family members seems confused and irritated after a brief quarrel with his security advisor Hon. Tut Kew Gatluak over unconfirmed reason.
But yesterday night at his official resident, family members who came to recommend their choice candidates that would reinstate Gen. Akol Koor disagreed over who to appoint between the incumbent Inspector General of Police Gen. Majak Akec Malok and the former Deputy Director-general for General Intelligence Bureau of National Security Lt.Gen. Charles Ciec Mayor was recently replaced by president Kiir’s Brother In-law Gen. Gregory Deng Kuac on Thursday night.
This developing story in the South Sudan security sector may jeopardize the country’s stability as it resembles the removal of Sudanese long-term spy chief Gen. Salah Gosh which led to the overthrow of President Omar Hassan Al Bashir by the Sudanese people. Many analysts believe that Gen. Akol Koor has reformed the country’s internal security issues and his absence may set a bad precedent on stability.
