Students’ union warns on politicizing Union
By Kidega Livingstone
The leadership of South Sudan General Students Union warned that none partisan and none political organizations of the union should stop politicizing the union.
In an exclusive interview with Juba Monitor yesterday, the Chairperson of Steering Committee of South Sudan General Students Union, Michael Makor Manut said that the students union has got nothing to do with political parties.
“The overall objectives which led to the establishment of the union were to address the issues of students in the country. I will never allow anyone whose intention is to politicize the student’s body, I will continue to resist such people,” said Makor.
He revealed that the union will soon organize the general assembly with support from the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology and Presidency.
“Students are going to elect the new leadership of the union during the general assembly that will be held soon,” said Makor.
Earlier last month the leadership of South Sudan General Students’ Union said some group of students forged the stamp of the union and made a self-declaration as a parallel steering committee. The Students Union was formed by the then Minister of General Education and Instruction Deng Deng Hoc through a Ministerial order in January. The union was formed to organize general assembly meetings.
