South Sudan’s Kiir withdraws delegated executive powers from VP Machar


April 15, 2013 (JUBA) - South Sudanese president Salva Kiir on Monday issued a decree withdrawing executive powers that were delegated to his vice-president Riek Machar, according to a broadcast by the state-run South Sudan Television.

The order did not cite or state any reason for the move and no official statement has been released. It also did not specify to the public which powers he delegated to the Vice President and had to be withdrawn or the difference such powers have with the powers stipulated in the constitution and wanted him to continue to exercise.

Kiir now restricted Machar to the powers “stipulated in the article 105” of the transitional constitution.

The decision may be linked to Machar’s intentions, which he made clear during the last politburo meeting of the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), to run for its chairmanship in the upcoming convention.

Article 105 of the transitional Constitution of South Sudan gives the vice-president ceremonial powers to act for the president in the event that the head of state is out of the country in order to perform any functions or duties conferred upon the president.

Presidential decree reducing the powers of South Sudan’s Vice President Riek Machar.

Earlier today, Kiir also issued a decree dissolving the national reconciliation committee and cancelling the entire process which was overseen by Machar.

The process was initially planned to start on 18 April but the convention was pushed back to June on the grounds that more time was needed to prepare for it.

Sources claim the postponement was due to political differences over the agenda and the timing of the process.


Manyok Deng Barac, a resident of Juba from Jonglei state, accused politicians of politicising the national reconciliation process, claiming there are people within the SPLM who were opposed to the initiative from the start.

“The president cannot just decide to dissolve the whole national reconciliation process. There must be something which he did not like. Maybe his kitchen advisors and confidants have advised him to do so. It has been politicised. It cannot happen just like that”, said Barac on Monday in an interview.

A well-placed source at the office of the president confirmed the existence of internal disagreements and claimed that some senior government officials protested the conduct of the reconciliation process, saying it was without a clear agenda.

The officials also expressed suspicions that the vice-president had wanted to use it as a political campaign project against the president.

“There are people who think the president does not know what they are doing. He knows everything and he made a wise decision for this case. First of all he [the president] was not consulted by the vice-president and his group from the day this so called national reconciliation project came to light. The president was surprised when it was brought up in the council of ministers,” a presidential source told Sudan Tribune on Monday.

“How would they feel if they [the organisers] were the president? This is clearly a political project. You see they went to the extent of collecting people from the states and brought them to Juba without the knowledge of the president”, he added.

Peter Tut, a resident of Juba from Unity state, questioned why the president, who himself has been seen as someone preaching peace and reconciliation, cancelled an initiative meant to complement his efforts to bring stability to the country.

“I was surprised when I watched South Sudan Television announcing [these] decrees. One of the decrees was withdrawal of some powers which the president delegated to the vice-president and the decree dissolving and cancelling the entire reconciliation process and finally a decree retiring two senior police officers”, Tut said.

“I do not mind about the other decrees; the one about withdrawal of the powers which the president delegates to the vice-president and the order which retires two senior police officers. What surprised me was the decree cancelling the national reconciliation process and dissolution of the committee because this was complementing the president’s effort about peace”, he said

Deng Lual Baak, a native of Warrap state currently visiting Juba, said the president cannot be blamed because he is surrounded by people who perceive any popular initiative as a threat to them.

“Nothing will ever go well in this country if the president continues to keep the same misleading elements around him. They have blocked him to the extent that he is not getting any meaningful messages from the people. The president is actually not getting fresh air. He is not in touch with the people. He is cut off from the general public by unpopular cliques”, Baak told Sudan Tribune.

    Boys, do not panic. The revolution has just begin. Dinka has just declared a war on us. Time to teach these Gogrial illiterates a lesson that they will never forget. Nuer Oyeee! Rami ran Oyeee! This South Sudan was born through our sacrifice .without Dr Riek, everything could be in rumble.

    • 16 April 2013 01:52, by LL Reuben

      You should celebrate this news instead you’re yelping about the usual Nuer insanity. Kiir has just made it easy for Riek to run for presidence in 2015 - afterall, isn’t that what you Nuer extremies want him to do?

      • 16 April 2013 07:12, by Paul Chadrack

        this is the begining of the war, the Bhar el Gazels should know that the tragic Consequence they will face. whether by degrees or what, your foolish president will go.

        • 16 April 2013 09:42, by Turism

          Paul, even your father Riek will not dream of fighting with "bar koc dhaal" if you don’t know dinka language pliz contact your fren to help you, these pple are very terrible.

            @ Turism
            it sounds to me as if you want tell the public that,the constitution of south Sudan was meant to serve one person and his loyalists and i am convinced that, the constitution of south Sudan was not meant to serve the subjects but the president and his family ,there is on doubt about that,fortunately the move is preparing a ground for Machar,s 2015 highest seat in the land.

        • 16 April 2013 10:01, by Ruba

          I just cannot understand where are we heading as acountry every body thinking to rule it not to build to own it not love it , so you will be hating and killing yourself in name of power while other are prograssing even without power , shame on you for how long you are holding this power but the poorest part in south Sudan is yours.think and work for yourself ,your family and forget who will rule .

        • 16 April 2013 11:52, by Dumodit

          You know the area of change my dear. Never generalize Bahr El Ghazal as involved in the policy. However, president still have more Nuer boys serving in his government. if the case mean for Nuer against Dinka, do you think the president will allow high military commanders: depend minister, chief of staff, information minister other battalion commanders ect remain in services. There’s reason behind!

        • 16 April 2013 19:23, by Alfredo christiani

          Dear Paul
          You are a great liar, your grandfathers tried war with Dinka and they were defeated, your fathers tried again & they were destroyed. Your father Riak Machar tried his level best to joined hand with ARABS in 1990s and fought terrible war with Dinka for more than 12 years but he failed until he surrendered himself to the SPLA in 2003, Nuer will not and cannot defeat Dinka in term of war

      • 16 April 2013 08:23, by Wunditda

        I don’t see a reason Mr. Prsident dissolved Peace and Reconciliation Committee although it was an initiative schemed by his Vice. As a country that needs prosperity, President would have embraced this idea of peace and reconciliation. It’s what our hostile communities need to be done. There is a need for sensitization and civic education about peaceful coexistence as a people and as a nation.

        • 16 April 2013 12:02, by Dumodit

          If you stay a distance, you can’t able to see or observe well what is happening in the battle field.
          In face, you mentioned "I don’t see the reason", true Indeed. president has seen it and found out the reason and was why he determined the dissolution of the National reconciliation committee.

        • 16 April 2013 14:12, by watakarabu

          You are right bro Wundita, the reconiliation process/commutte should have been treated differently. To me reconciliation mean alot to people of south sudan than running for presidency at this earliest stage. Although i am one of south sudanese community, i totally disagree with what few elements within our two communities of DINGA+NUER thinking about themselves in south sudan as the only people.

        • 16 April 2013 19:32, by Alfredo christiani

          Dear Wundita
          You are good on typing ABCD on key board in East Africa but with no political knowledge; read history of the SPLA/M that begun in 1983 up to 2005. you boys better to distance yourselves away from politics and concentrate on how to develop yourself in term of education ,

      • 16 April 2013 15:24, by chuol

        Kiir Need to think twice,why Unqualified leader withdraws powers from qualified one? who will discuses the issues facing this country with outsider..... it’s unchewing idea that will n,t be digested easily by him.

      • 16 April 2013 17:36, by Tiitrot

        son of bitch or Riek what ever you called yourself since when did you discover the war between us the Warriors(Monjang) which means men of all nations and you our wives the coward Nuer? Please don’t be surprised and running the mouth for no reason, just expect your Refugee Mr. Riek to be removed and go home for rest.Your days are off. Monjang Dinka Oyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

      • 16 April 2013 21:35, by Force 1

        Kirr decision is reasonable if Riek intention is to run for president in 2015. You cannot ran for president and be the vice president at the same time.

    • 16 April 2013 02:59, by omoni jr.

      This nation and its governement is at the verge of collapse,it is just a matter of time.
      The dictator will be either in an exile in Ethiopia with his daughter or we will send him direct to Hell through uprising or by revolutionary forces that will cut him and his gangs off from the south sudan soil.

      • 16 April 2013 03:09, by TUR-ANGON

        I thinks this country is heading towards total collapse. I never thought of a President that is so naive to fear competition.

      • 17 April 2013 03:19, by George Bol

        Do not panic. Our problem with Nuer is always between ourselves juts give us time and you will see them running to Ethipia and pretend to be nuer of ethipia. Let nuer dream on nyagat again but they need to think twice because no jallaba at this time. Warning!

    • 16 April 2013 06:08, by ksimon

      I don’t think its a right decision by the president because what vice president doing it does not ruin SPLM policy but promotion the unification in Southern and also create popularity within the SPLM. Now that will be upto the president to unite ourselves or divide and keeping hatred in us.
      I know MR president will feel sorry when reclaim is quick decision he made.

    • 16 April 2013 07:00, by Mapuor

      No return to 1983 Itang situation which resulted in Nyagaatism,no return to massacres of innocent recruits from Bhar El Gazal at Pangak,Wiclual and Duchan.No return to massacre of 1991 were Dinkas who were deployed to Nuer areas were skinned alive.Lets respect our presidents decisions always becoz the cost of respecting his decisions is far better than the opposite

      • 16 April 2013 07:20, by Paul Chadrack

        stupid Mapour.
        Is south sudan for bhar el gazels alone?, this not Itang or Ethiopia. this is a clear plan to loot this country which not going to be allowed by any open minded person. this time don’t expect that all dinkas will join you in this foolish war for defending the corrupt kiir leadership,not at all.

      • 16 April 2013 08:55, by Wunditda

        Mapuor ---
        You put it in a way which rather seems satisfactory but you paradoxically contradicted yourself thoughtlessly. Because we do not want a return to massacres which ensued in 1983 and 1991, the nation need peace and reconciliation to be harbored as a mechanism for achieving unity in diversity . So people should not always be stupid to support catastrophic ideas.

    • 16 April 2013 07:19, by Malou Manyiel

      Lets not jump into the conclusion of what the decision of the president would mean. Dinka and Nuer are not the only tribes in South Sudan. We should not comment as tribes but as South Sudanese. Indeed, it sound bad for president to cancelled the National Reconcilation process. Those surrounding Kiir known as advisors are the one that will bring this country down to its knees.

    • 16 April 2013 07:44, by Corrupt Dinka

      You Nuer need not to forget that Dinka Bar elgazal’s time ending with either death or war, otherwise you need to make sure that Dinka can learn lesson from us. Nuer Oyeeeeee!!!!!

      • 16 April 2013 09:04, by Wunditda

        Corrupt Dinka---
        Stop your Nuerism philosophy here. We’re discussing on national issues that encompasses neither Dinka nor Nuer but all 64 tribes in South Sudan.

    • 16 April 2013 07:46, by Dinkawarrior

      It’s not something to surprising me or anyone else! Because he already had all the powers under our watch, it is too late for us to be noisy now. Secondly, Dr. Holocaust Traitor Machar has his own Party SSDF which is run by her wife Nyanter Holocaust. SPLM should have one person at a time where each and every member have to agree on it, so he have right to withdraws if this is threat to his power.

    • 16 April 2013 08:00, by chuol

      Boyzs this is good news to Dr Machar..........! now let him run the government alone if he would manage....and ma..man will rest for while.for all my guys, this is not a revolution i can called political interest between them since Kiir is aware about what will take place in 2015 election..........

    • 16 April 2013 08:09, by okucu pa lotinokwan

      The president took right dission on this, what national reconciation? to who? if any one among the SPLM govt senior officials did something bad to others in the past let him/her go physically to ask forgiveness, than spoiling alot of fund for this project,which has no meaning.And there should be nothing like war on this dission of the president.

      • 16 April 2013 09:15, by Wunditda

        It’s not war bro. There is always peace and reconciliation plan to be executed in post-conflict nation just like what happened in South Africa, Rwanda, Kenya etc... We need peace and unity in our homeland.

    • 16 April 2013 08:10, by AUGUSTINO DENG

      You are a liar. If Dinka fought arabs, Nuer, and Equatorian and no one defeat Dinka, do you think that Nuer is the only tribe that will defeat Dinka? That is why I said that all Nuer people are like a child. They don’t advised themselves, and at the same time, they don’t have sense of memories. Everything is let go without reason.."Waneh thiin"

        Deng, tell them not to joke with Dinkas otherwise they will be introuble cooz dinkas are the mojority and brave at the sametime as their leaders.

        • 16 April 2013 13:06, by Paul Chadrack

          Trurism, whom do you think will let his child die defending Kiir’s corrupt tribal government again?, even dinkas will fight in the coming war against your foolish uncle’s goverment.

        Augustino Deng
        Just pray Dengtath/Gundeng to cold down the mind of Dr Machar not to use war, think for ur country that u brought out from Arab for more strateges plans.
        Dinkas cannot talked one hr in this country,niether unity of Great Equatoria nor minority tribes like Shulluk,Anuak, Jurs in Bhar-Al-Gazzel.
        Nuer tribe only can defeat Dinkas with in one hr, Bentue Nuer and Dinkas Bhar Al Gazzel.

        • 16 April 2013 13:19, by AUGUSTINO DENG

          Pinyin Gatkuoth,
          Dying animals always have some sort of dangling. I think you pretty know Dinka anyways.So I cannot sequestered my time for no reason. Riek fight Dinka in 1991 and he succumbed himself to Dinka right now. Lam Akol fight Dinka and nothing happen substantially even right now.These are just some few examples to digest. There are many rebels on ground right now, but they will not win.

    • 16 April 2013 08:20, by Malou Manyiel

      To those who are saying " The war is on",
      War is not in the interest of the people of South Sudan. We have had enough of it for the last decades. Remember those government officials starting from the president down to the last list have their families outside the country. There4, we the ordinary citizens will be the victims. Lets take votes as our weapons to vote them out period!!!

    • 16 April 2013 08:33, by Pure Nationalist

      You are totlly wrong, no Dinka, no Nuer, it is just political game and this will give people of South Sudan to get development they want because SPLM is going to divide itself where by a new competent one led by Dr. Riek will emerge and either of the parties will try to convince South Sudanese by deed not by unnecessary speeches that SPLM leadership speak without action and follow up

    • 16 April 2013 08:43, by Kawaja Mikis

      Well done job, Mr. President Kiir, South Sudan need strong leader like you. Today i believe you.

    • 16 April 2013 09:24, by pabaak

      people like you still don’t learn from the past mistake, what the war can achieved that can’t peace achieved? its seem you have appetite for war but you have to understand that there is nothing can gain from it, I can’t blame the president for cancelling peace reconciliation committee and process all together because if he have no information before then its his right to cancel it but I do

      • 16 April 2013 09:39, by pabaak

        blame him for giving too much powers to the VP for the first place, I have to remember his statement last time that there is government running within the government. But I don’t blame him removing powers from one to another because is not a big issue in democratic societies because if there’s necessary, the government can delegate powers and take them whenever needed to do so. please be calm

        • 16 April 2013 09:49, by pabaak

          we have bigger than this, we have a country that have almost 10m people, if anything happen in politics is not always about Nuer VS Dinka or other tribes, leaders come and go but land still belong to its people, I don’t understand why always what politicians done in their offices become tribal issues as the president sit in the office to solve tribal issues?. we need to change our attitudes so

          • 16 April 2013 09:54, by pabaak

            that this country can accommodate all of us, for example if Nuer, Bari, latoka, or even Jie of Jonglei want to contests to be president can win the election

    • 16 April 2013 10:21, by Kalo

      That is for your own business guys,do not rush for the power while you have not yet full liberated your country from the crisis e,g Yawyaw in Pibor,otherwise your country will be miss up in tribalism issue,

      What does the word reconciliation mean to the people of South Sudan? Who is supposed to reconcile who in the event of conflict and misunderstanding in the Nation? Does South Sudan have Religious leaders and God fearing people?
      Why do people always come to conclusion of a negative thought to the decision taken by the head of state? Was there any hidden agenda behind the Reconciliation process?

      • 16 April 2013 11:30, by Lango2010

        If the current government is a fail & corrupt government, is it only Kiir or the whole government. Neither Kiir nor Riek is an enemy to one another or to each other’s tribe.
        I don’t need to be Dinka to support Kiir or Nuer to support Riek, kiir is not a setting President.
        We have to look forward not backward to something that can bring the nation back square one again.
        unity is the power to all.

      Without Riek Machar, the Republic of South Sudan is pretty pecefull and productive can still move on very well.
      For your information, you Nuer are weaken and coward. All your warlord are dead and some are in jails, what will you do? After removing Riek’s power he will either be jail or kill. Take my word!
      The wise decision a vice president with illiterate president can do is to resign

    • 16 April 2013 16:31, by GreatLeopard

      My brother Gaar, I am a Dinka but for long I am very disappointed in our goverment and our leaders including Salva Kiir and Riek Machar. But most importantly Salva Kiir is a total failure. I am not a supporter of Dr. Machar yet but I think his reconciliation idea should have been given a chance.. I therefore think we need change. But we can not bring change by dividing the people. we are one peopl

      Dear South Sudanese,
      Who benefits from 1991 Riak’s Nasir Revolution? Was it Nuer or Dinka?
      I believe none of the above tribes.Therefore, if you hear a little about machar or Kiir, then do not take it on tribal basis.They must be treated as individual in order for this nation to survive.
      There is nothing wrong with decree issued by the president. He is just fearful about the popularity of Machar

  • 16 April 2013 03:39, by Ito

    Dear Brothers and Sisters, We should not be surprise to hear what we hear about the decision taken by President Kiir. Dinka cannot allow anyone to rule this country if we don’t take forceful means to cut them off power. Another thing about Dinka is that they will always support each other though they are wrong as seen in comments. They will suck this country dry if we don’t stand behind Riek and

    • 16 April 2013 09:49, by Lord martin the great

      I think the president has decided constitutionally to withdraw the powers from Riek as a vice president and not because is a Nuer by tribe, you took it in a wrong concept otherwise the force you claim always to be used agaist Dinka will put some of minor tribes into dangerous situation in this country.

          Dear all reader
          Am very sorry to say this: you are all very stupid talking tribalism words on this site let work reform and minds set of work not sitting in office infrastructure while receiving money only with too much talk without implementation of you say before. as we oil is going now!!! what are the plan if Arab deiced to steal again????????????

  • 16 April 2013 03:42, by Ito

    and say enough is enough and we must be ready to lay thousands or even millions of lives to take over the government. South sudan will never see peace if a Dinka is in power I tell you the truth. I live with them for years and have known them from toe to head and everybody in south sudan is sick of them but are just waiting for who can start the war against them. What Salva does is pure jealousy.

    • 16 April 2013 11:58, by Pinyin Gatkuoth

      Your ward is a true; the plan that was taken by Silva Kirr is Arab/Bisher decision to cheat our oil.
      if Arab did not drive Kirr like this ,they will not get our oil free, this coming war is not like last decade war.
      Plse Dinkas change ur Name for Nuer name before war, those who will not listen my wards it’s their end.

  • 16 April 2013 03:43, by kaci-banno

    Confusion in South Sudan clearly created by so called Riek, national reconciliation never bring change to the tribal crises in South Sudan, is time for him now to branch from SPLM party and joint crazy Lam and be and opposition party otherwise he will see the Hague soon.

  • 16 April 2013 03:45, by jay b

    This is a poor decision from the president who advised him to take this path in this volatile country is doom to fail.

  • 16 April 2013 03:46, by Ito

    He is threaten by Riek present because Riek is loved by the people and is intelligent comparing to illiterate Salva. Salva wants a Dinka to be selected as next flag bearer for splm. We will see. I suggest for Dinka to create their own country and rule themselves and live a primitive life and leave alone some of us who are peace and development oriented to build our own places.

  • 16 April 2013 03:49, by Ito

    Cancelling reconciliation committees means you are totally against peace and therefore against the country. Riek was elected by the people and have full right to run for president of this country. This country does not belong to Dinka. Dr. Riek, we want you to react seriously and we will die for you should war arise to bring freedom to our country. I am very upset and I don’t care about my life

    • 16 April 2013 03:51, by Ito

      I join spla in 1989 and fought till CPA. I am ready to again lay my life to this injustice. This is worth dying for to me. How long are we going to be slave in our own country. Worst than arabs slavery must be fought and stop. Thank you.

        be logic in your words and rhetoric, no time for the Kokora elements at this time, this is the time we need to learn how to understand each for betterment of this country, its seem you ignore the fact that no tribe will succeed to rule the country without nonparticipating from all tribes, do you thinks Bari will rule without support from, Dinka, Nuer or other tribes, is this what you think?

        • 16 April 2013 08:49, by pabaak

          the next leadership will be? do you think when Kirr won by the big margin of 97%, was this result mean were Dinka alone voted for him? look, you need to change your tribal rhetoric so that if you want to declare your candidacy for the president you will win Dinka votes, other wise if you keep preaching on this rhetoric you will be like barking dogs while the camel is marching

  • 16 April 2013 05:29, by AUGUSTINO DENG

    I see now the reason why Salva Kiir Miyardit keep flactuating himself from angle to angle. Because people like Deng Lual Baak,are the people fucking up Salva Kiir. Who is Salva Kiir himself? Why he cannot be blamed? Salva Kiir was wrong from the beginning since he step in as a president on 08/11/2005. To me Salva Kiir is wrong. He should have to limit himself from some powers too.

    • 16 April 2013 14:09, by Projector

      Deng! President Kiir had never been wrong and he will never be wrong but people around him, esp. his Tribe mate who mis miss advise him not to understand the voice of people who like development and balance of resources.

  • 16 April 2013 05:34, by Ayuiu Makuac Lam

    I don’t like Rick, but what this money desperate person did is not fair at all. Kiir need to be careful. we Dinka this time not going to covering the theft Pesident that cowardly killing the citizen and allow Bashir to take lands.

      The Gogrial kitchen advisors have panic they donot know that no right minded South Sudanese was prepared to ever again elect their cow-head fool to the S Sudanese highest office. The way they have ran the country has made every Sudanese tribe hate the whole dinka, & the Gogrial fools are not sensing how foolish their govt look in the eyes of S Sudanese & indeed the world.

      • 16 April 2013 06:34, by Tutbol

        I have never seen a Dinka who have no trace of shame, where every citizen in country is crying foul on how things are moving in the wrong ways but doesn’t want to hear any of it. The leadership with it bunch of fools live as if they are on different planet. President Kiir leadership style would make the former president of Congo, Mobutu Seseko an africa genius in leadership.

        • 16 April 2013 06:47, by Tutbol

          As much as i don’t like any current excutive members in the govt to ever again think that they deserve the trust of S Sudanese for 2015 elections, i think it would be safe to go for the literate no do gooder than illiterate status quo if we don’t have any more choices to chose from. Then Riak would be a safe choice than Kiir, it is that simple.

          • 16 April 2013 07:03, by Deng II

            Im pessimatic Kiir will be defeat in 2015 elections, because Im fear that he will deploys his 75 4 billions money folks and offices thefts to steal the election by any all means posible. It is not likely to defeet him. The guy is steal money to be uses for briding poor people, while poor people in the Country are majority.

          • 16 April 2013 07:05, by Tutbol

            But my humble message to every parrot out there like Ito who loves to apportion president Kiir myopic leadership quality styles on the whole Dinka than to blame Kiir & his Gogrial inner circle thieves of their failures; is in its self a big no brainer and it is not benefiting anyone. S Sudan belongs to every S Sudanese and every S Sudanese can be elected a president of all S Sudanese.

      • 16 April 2013 09:34, by Turism

        Tutbol, bear in mind that not all the advisors should be from Nuers people than other tribe since there mixing of advisors from the all tribe it naw okay than if it were the Nuers advisors then this country would have been in mess or otherwise Bashir would have taken everything cooz of your habit as food lovers.

        • 16 April 2013 10:52, by Tutbol

          I am not in anyway indulging on promoting any tribe to the top leadership ; but it is a fact, our govt looks like a kid runs government unless you are president Kiir himself. If that is how president Kiir or his close confidantes run their families, then they should they should cut their loots and go back to their villages.

    Waaw,National reconciliation is cancelled,I support the decision taken by president,Riak was politicizing and took it an opportunity to compaign and begin to explore his political influence,this reconcilliation processes was going to be bias if president had allowed it.I suppose the next reconciliation process will be headed by a religious leader not a politician.

    Ladies and Gentlemen it is my humble advice to all of you when commenting, it is wise to avoid abusive languages to our leaders and ourselves no matter how much we bitterly disagree. Negative or abusive comments don’t convey constructive message that could bring change we desire, but rather expose our own nakedness and ignorance to issues of national importance. Good luck to all of you.

    The decision of any President in the world is President’s decision. Yes, it is liable for criticism but not to beat a drum of war.

So, Governor Taban Deng has to form committees at both State and County level to carry on the reconciliation process. It is that State Reconciliation Committee to reconcile the Nuer, Dinka Pariang and Dinka Abiemonhom if there exists any conflict.

          The work of the Presidency (VP & President) is ceremonially spiritual. They have to be possessed by love of this Country. They shall wholeheartedly supervise, morally and materially support the process.
          Before conducting those trainings & meetings, the 1st assignment of the National Reconciliation Committee should be "CARRYING OUT SURVEY TO IDENTIFY POTENTIAL AREAS & CAUSES OF CONFLICT".

          • 16 April 2013 09:17, by Tata

            How can you reconcile without knowing the cause of and parties to the conflict? Absolutely NO. Who are to be reconciled and why should be known in advance.
            It is a bit confused that the VP wants to dedicate his precious time to move from State to State preaching reconciliation, and leave his office empty. Who will be carrying out his Constitutional daily work? Or he will appoint a 2nd VP?

            • 16 April 2013 09:34, by Tata

              It seems the VP is morally uncomfortable with his PAST as rebel leader. Can the VP tell us whom he wants to reconcile with and why? Does he wants reconcile with Equatorians? Why? Was he commissioned to operate in Equatoria before 1991? Of cause NO, but Nasir Zonal Command. He just needs to apologize to Western Equatoria people where he trades with LRA.

      You seem to have been embarrassed by the decision of Mr president.Let me tell you this,as a human being,its natural to respond to things either negatively or positively.Reprocity is also natural.Kiir is acting naturally and he is justified in our context.

    Any leader who doesn’t reason, analyse and judge the immediate and future implication of his/her self decisions on the soveriegnty and the Enthusiastic unity of the Country and the people is an uninformed leader,Is mr president at Puberty stage, where he is guided by reflex actions, Mr presi, i respect you as a person but no more as a president, u can take it to the bank or swallow the bitter pill

    Kiir has already lost his popularity among all southerners. And completely agreed with my brother Mi diit that this is not about Nuer vs Dinka. It is individuals’ evils acts and Kiir and his homeboys will one day be accountable for what might or not happened in this country. Kiir was a one who used Dr. Riek in last election which they had scored over 97% voted over Dr. Lam in the name of running m

I am questing only those closing to Mr. Kiir would answer that... move on; I think Mr. Kiir is gone insane, if not where in this world a head of State would cancel the country’s healing and national reconciliation process?

    There are no two contenders in one party in this world. Vice president Riak can either apt to form his own party and contest in 2015 or adhere to the SPLM party’s principle. This chicken head called Nuers think their laughing machine stab his both in the back and get away with it. Nuers and their pussycat Equatorians should stop intimidating Dinkas (us).

        i am a dinka, but your Kiir policies are not any better than Yau Yau or Lam Akol. We all have option in our S Sudan, confederation would be the best option if your Kiir manages to get to gripe of power again. If South Sudanese are going to be ruled by the likes of Kiir then there would be no need for need for UNITY IN S SUDAN.

          Guys from gazelle think they know anything to do with ruling other peoples. The best Dinkas are Maluals, Ngoks, Tonjs, Agaars, Bors and Atuots, but our Gogrials of old Dinkas are thieves, we all know each other during the war, the Gogrial kids were highly represented in thievery in our refugee kids in ethiopia & Kenya.

    Bravo Dr. Riek Machar. I am told Dr. Riek is now doing his normal office work and responsibilities as if nothing had happened. And Kiir is in the house drinking whisky. What a drama. We know that the government can collapse without VP b/se Kiir would be busy drinking and not doing the work of the powers he had withdrawn from Riek.

    • 16 April 2013 12:32, by Michael Angelo

      Mi diit,
      If the SPLM didn’t collapse when Riak left then what make you think that it’ll collaplse now? If it wasn’t Kiir and Garang then Riak wouldn’t be in that office by now. Unity between Nuers vs. Dinkas will come through bullet period.

      Our "own country"!? And what country was that!? Sudan!? You throw around words like country, but you actually don’t know what it means. These white people that you speak of are the very same white people that created the very Sudan that we supposedly worked against. Kordofan became part of Sudan in 1901 and Darfur in 1916. Arabs raided the Dinka over a century prior to "independence".

      • 16 April 2013 18:20, by Clausewitz

        The Arabs coveted, encroached and subsequently occupied our lands prior and after independence. You had the support of the ’Western’ world during our first rebellion; a rebellion bought upon by your imperious rejection of our reasonable demand that we be afforded a degree of autonomy. You had the chance to make amends, but you destroyed that chance when you abrogated the Addis ababa agreement.

        • 16 April 2013 18:22, by Clausewitz

          You were the largest recipient of U.S. development and military aid in Africa -after Egypt- until 1989. Sanctions were only applied on Sudan when you made the folly of supporting Iraq when it invaded Kuwait, in stark contrast to the position taken by the castrated, whorish, sycophantic satrapies of the Persian Gulf.

          • 16 April 2013 18:30, by Clausewitz

            The separate Azande, Dinka and Nuer resistance to British rule lasted years longer than the Mahdiya. You were treated very well by the British — a fact that you wish to ignore. You were in a long line of people [Empires & States] that believed that they could subdue us without resistance.

            • 16 April 2013 18:31, by Clausewitz

              The North benefited infinitely more from colonial British administration than did the petulant and defiant South; whereas the South was neglected, the North received a great deal of investment in infrastructure, in industry and the economy in general. The Gezira scheme for example was a direct result of British investment > for which there was no comparable scheme in the South!

              • 16 April 2013 18:39, by Clausewitz

                "Neur Oil State"? Is that seriously what you think it should be called!? Interesting. Allow me to disabuse you of the unfounded belief that the oil reserves of South Sudan lay in Nuer lands. Some Nuer constantly subject us to this spiel about how they are feeding our young Nation with their oil. The myth that the Nuer provide the bulk of our oil... is just that — a myth!

                • 16 April 2013 18:47, by Clausewitz

                  The largest and most productive oil fields in South Sudan lay in Dinka lands... and they are: Paloich, Adar-yale, Melut, Toor, Toma south, Nar, Alhar and Manga. "Heglig" and "Toma" rightfully belong to the Ruweng Dinka. At least 90% of South Sudan’s oil production comes from Dinka lands, with Paloich alone accounting for 80% of South Sudan’s oil production.

                  • 16 April 2013 18:55, by Clausewitz

                    You thought that you were so very cleaver, didn’t you? You thought that you were privy to the particulars of such things as the location of our oilfields and the tribal lands in which they were purportedly located. Run along now, you ignorant, presumptuous little clod. You know absolutely nothing.

                    • 16 April 2013 19:00, by Clausewitz

                      If you wish to find victims of colonialism - look in the mirror. You have the identity, language, customs and mannerisms of an alien people who imposed it upon you after the baqt - the pact that mandated the provision of slaves from your own population to the Arabs.

    Guys what is wrong with the decree?, salva kirr is the president and the traitor Riek is under him.
    I know that you dinkas and nuer are backward people and those who know nothing about politics should leave it to the politician.
    Riak is still our vice president and if he wants to be a president, he should wait until 2015 when the citizens will decide.

  • 16 April 2013 18:20, by Young Patriot

    DR Riek should now focus on his campaign for the presidency in 2015! It is a good news because we will have an effective challenger against the empty headed Mayardit. He sacks Lakes gov and now withdrawing powers from the VP. Dinkas do not support Kiir particularly Agar community in Lakes..Riek and Gov Mayay as VP,
    on 2015 pres election!

    To all,
    Many of you are linguistically malnourished. The article read "South Sudan’s Kiir withdraws delegated executive powers from VP Machar" If there is a constitution in RSS, then the front page is suggesting that the president is acting within his authority. What is unconstitutional is his involvement in the reconciliation process.

    Waaat a premature decision from mr president?. To me it sound unilliterate for the removal of vp’s executive powers. Does he really know wat he doing or it is de wisky mind dat he possesed?. Riak is a man peace dat every1 knows in SS. Rather than this corrupt president who is advocating triblism and insecurity in Ss.

    Nuer should be a ware abour riek since 1991. he rebel with nuer and later come and beg the leadership and leave his fellow nuer in darkness. This is not a time when jallaba is at our back, to be honest if nuer think about riek as their leader through their nasty and blindness wich, then they are dreaming for uncertainity. Dinka is watching you and their is no way nyagat can dream in the daylight.

Kiir ve sodomiz Riek soon not later 2015 kiir , luka Biong & Deng Aloor would be sodomiz and gomorise by people of s.sudan through election. This time isn,t going to be like 1991 split. We will begin right here in juba then we follow them to small Nuer land.
