S. Sudan ruling party official warns of looming "revolution"


January 8, 2017 (JUBA)- A former South Sudanese official has warned President Salva Kiir of a looming "revolution" should he fail to step aside from the helm or change the way he runs the country’s affairs.

“The people’s revolution is coming. You’re dividing our society .You’re killing your own legacy and our fallen heroes legacy. If you can’t run it, step aside”, Suzanne Jambo, a former secretary for external affairs at South Sudan’s ruling party secretariat, said.

Jambo, a supporter of the president while in office, said South Sudanese were fed up after being pushed too far since President Kiir got into the centre of national affairs.

“You’ve pushed us too far and we are now fed up! You’ve only a few months to act or get out of that seat! Make sure you take with you all your Incompetent relatives, expired old guards & corrupt colleagues," Jambo wrote on her Facebook page on 3 January.

The former party official warned that change was coming and nothing would stop it.

“We are coming and nothing will stop us, the patriots, the youth, the won and the competent", she further wrote.

It is unclear what prompted Jambo to openly criticise the ruling party.

Critics of the former South Sudan ruling party official, however, argued that it could have been an attempt to draw the attention of the president to get into negotiation through middlemen and colleagues at the secretariat or in the government to offer her a job.

    Suzanne Jambo and the like helped embolden Kiir. When some of us have written Kiir and cohorts eons ago people like Suzanne thought there was sone good left in Kiir. Let this moron president be left to himself....

      Eastern, Midit,
      You both and I are skilled and analytical, we project events. Others like Suzanne Jambo learn it the hard way. We excuse them. As an Equatorian sister we salute her and wish many of the sisters to come and push our vision of a free, democratic and progressive Equatoria. Every single Equatorian counts. The goal is nearer than b4.

    I am reliably informed that both Suzanne Jambo and Gregory Vasili were sired by Greek merchants who came to trade in Sudan in not distant past. So Suzanne is not a nepotistic?! Just wondering.....

    My appeal to the president of the republic of RoSS, please hire this lady ASAP! She’s likely to attempt suicide. Just see the way she talks, giving the president of RoSS 2 months of stepping down or face an acts? Where will she get the support to topple the government?

    Susan Jumbo’s facebook account was hacked or slivery of tongue. I don’t think she is the one wrote that. Three days ago she had wrote something while supporting the government. Leave her alone is our sister. She is toothless to overthrow the government.

    Susan was a staunch supporter of Kiir al Awiir over the last decade, what went wrong that she has to be critical when we are at the last minute of this moron in office. Is it because she has been used to the extreme socially and politically. U were secretary for external affairs as well as secretary for internal affairs which meant u have been used inside out and useless now my dear. Mourn!!!

    There is a saying that Change is permanent and so Suzanne Jambo has given in to the wind of change. She should not be rebuked. She would be welcome to the folk. Indeed change is on the way just because Kiir and his henchmen has torn apart the nation on tribal basis.

      I disagree with you in your including of President kiir in holding responsibility for the civil war. The president didn’t start the war it was embossed on him by Machar and his supporters. So he bears no responsibility for the results of the war, there is only one man to be blamed and his is Machar.

    Dinka Aliap, your question is valid, people should resigned first and then make criticism that where their argument be consider relevant. Making criticism after loosing job would be consider as resentment and grieving. However, people of South Sudan are the one making themselves suffer, government failed long time ago, but we keep supporting it, based on your relative in government, but not servic

      Only very even men have come out so bold to attack Kiir. She deserves credit and respect. Other men out there are worthless and worst political prostitutes than she has been. Kiir is surviving cos Equatorians are keeping him on. We urge every Equatorian to take clear position: We against them period. Bakasoro, Sudan etc on the march to gloryland. Support now.

    I’m abit disappointed by the way our affairs are being run by the so rival leaders. Why for God’s sake would someone serve in the same government after being sacked you go to start threating them again. I have never been a supporter of this so called government of kirr. I can never also support rebellion against any regime because those we support may turn to be the criminals we should have never
