Don’t be Judas Iscariot -Activist warns

A senior youth activist has said some government officials who are incompetent in performing their duties have become traitors accusing their colleagues to President Kiir to be sacked from their positions.

Speaking in an interview with Juba Monitor yesterday, Wutchok Magangdit said there is evidence where some individuals have written letters directly to the President’s office demanding for the removal of some ministers and other senior officials in government institutions.

“You cannot just come and write a letter as an individual to the President asking for the removal or appointment of other people. I think the President will not accept that and that is not the interest of the majority, we are encouraging our President to work with the people who can do the work,” Magandit said.

“If we are forcing the President to remove somebody which means our President has no power, our Law must maintain our interests and anybody who is active in his or her work must be maintained,” he added.

A letter extended to Juba Monitor by the activist revealed that one senior government official wrote a letter to President Kiir demanding the removal of the Minister in the Office of the President, Mayiik Ayii Deng.

The letter reads: “As such we are calling for the replacement of Mayiik Ayii with Akol Paul, a technocrat someone with proven track record of performance in the SPLM Party. Paul Dhel has to occupy the position of Akol Paul Koordit as the deputy Minister of Information and Broadcast, as well as Philip Aguer Panyang to replace the position of Michael Makuei Lueth”.

According to Activist Magandit, the President as the head of nation must be respected based on South Sudan constitution.

Magandit condemned the letter saying people need to respect the President and the ongoing national dialogue. “We need all South Sudanese to come together for unity and make our country to be like other countries in the world,” he said.
