March 16, 2017 (JUBA) – South Sudan President Salva Kiir has appointed a new minister for agriculture and that of labour and public service.

This follows a vacuum created after resignations in recent months.
In a decree read on the state-owned SSBC, Kiir appointed Onyoti Adigo Nyikwec as the new agriculture minister, replacing Lam Akol.

Akol resigned from the coalition government in August last year and formed a rebel group, the National Democratic Movement (NDM).

President Kiir also appointed Gen. Gathoth Gatkuoth Hothnyang as the labour and public service minister to be deputized by David Yau Yau, who was removed from the deputy defense minister’s position.

Meanwhile, the president appointed Gen. Thoi Chany Reat as deputy minister for defense. Reat, a member of the armed opposition faction, is an ally of First Vice President Taban Deng Gai.

President Kiir also issued another decree removing former First Vice President Riek Machar and lawmakers loyal to the latter, from parliament.

A number of new MPs were also appointed by the South Sudanese leader.

            Kuch, can you visit M7 tweets today? U are supporting a dead living man.. Am not a Nuer by the way, but I like their courageous and boldness when coming to time of nationalism, the problem with them is a lack of patience and endurance.

          Kuck,

          In addition to South Sudan under Kiir, being the door mat of every Tom, Dick and Harry, South Sudan has become the dust bin of its neighbours. In the face of the glaring famine, the Sudanese are already dumping the rotten dura and ades (lentils) to save your villagers in Northern Bahr el Ghazal, some of whom are already Eastern Darfur. The worst is yet to come!!!

      Eastern,

      Don’t be too stupid. Kiir would make all the decisions about South Sudan, I mean all decisions including that one will involve your life. You have to take it hard or shut up and stay away from South Sudan for the rest of your life. You get it????

    You know you are in a dictatorship when the president elects not only members of parliament but also governors! Ridiculous, just redicolous! Kiir has gone bananas! He doesn’t understand what parliament is, he doesn’t understand the concept of nation building! This mad dog needs to return to his cattle camp, not state house!
