Cracks in South Sudan presidency over dismissal of Unity state governor


July 9, 2013 (JUBA)- The South Sudanese Vice President Riek Machar has written a letter asking President Salva Kiir to reverse his decision sacking Unity state governor Taban Deng suggesting that this was done in violation of the country’s constitution.

South Sudan president Salva Kiir (R) & his Vice President Riek Machar (L)

Kiir issued a surprise decree on Sunday firing Deng without providing reasons and appointed Joseph Nguen Minytuil as Unity state’s caretaker governor.

Even though Deng is an elected official, Kiir invoked his powers under article 101(r) of South Sudan’s constitution which allows him to to remove a state Governor and/or dissolve a state Legislative Assembly in the event of threats to national security or territorial integrity but stipulates that a fresh elections be organised within 60 days.

VP Machar disclosed that he was not consulted but heard it on TV and challenged his boss’s assessment with regards to the security situation in the Unity state

“I was in Unity state on June 29th, 2013, there is no insecurity that threatens national security and territorial integrity in Unity state, instead Governor Taban Deng Gai and his government was very instrumental in bringing about peace and stability to the state," Machar said in a letter dated July 7th seen by Sudan Tribune.

"He [Deng] was solely responsible for the coming and acceptance of your timely pardon by the armed group of General Bapiny Monytuel Wicjang who abandoned opposition against the government of the Republic of South Sudan last May”, the letter reads in part.

The Vice President reminded the president that Governor Deng has won the 2010 general elections and has the same legitimacy as Kiir before the constitution and his people of Unity state.

Ironically, during the April 2010 elections Machar’s wife, Angelina Teny ran against Deng who was also the incumbent governor but the latter ended up winning by a small margin.

The now appointed caretaker was in Teny’s camp during these elections.

Machar also expressed “deep concern “that dismissal of the elected governor might heighten tension and aggravate prevailing state of insecurity in the country that may lead to political instability".

“I urge you to live to your constitutional obligation to diligently and honestly discharge your duties and responsibilities in a consultative manner to foster the development and welfare of the people of South Sudan, promote the unity of the people of South Sudan and consolidate the democratic decentralized system of government and preserve the integrity and dignity of the people of South Sudan,” Machar said.

The Vice President implored upon Kiir to reverse his decision warning that absent of any objective reasons will be seen as politically motivated.

“In order to preserve the integrity of our new nation and avoid crisis, I urge you to rescind your decision. It was in the same election that your good-self was elected as President of the Government of Southern Sudan. As such, your action of relieving an elected governor is seen politically motivated and more importantly it is a violation of our constitution”, said Machar.

It is unlikely that president Kiir will heed to the advice carried in the letter from his deputy as he has already proceeded with the swearing in of the new governor.

Machar’s letter is latest sign of growing rift between Kiir and senior officials in his government and ruling Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM).

The VP has stepped up his criticism of president Kiir accusing him of incompetence and failure to lead the state which came two life exactly two years ago.

He also went as far as urging the first president of South Sudan to step down.

"To avoid authoritarianism and dictatorship, it is better to change. Our time is limited now. I have been serving under Salva Kiir. I do my best serving under him. I think it is time for a change now" Machar told the Guardian interview in an interview.

Prior to that the VP has made his intentions clear to run against Kiir in 2015 during closed door meetings of the SPLM.

Unity state ex-governor appeared to say that his removal is due to suspicion by Kiir that he is backing Machar for presidency.

"Recently when I went to America the President was suspicious that I had meetings with American government that I’m pushing for Riek Machar election”, Gai told the congregation" Deng said on Monday adding that Machar is free to contest for the leadership of South Sudan if he wants.

Last month, Kiir also suspended the Minister of Cabinet Affairs Deng Alor and minister of Finance and Economic Planning Kosti Manibe for alleged corruption over request and transfer of nearly $8 million to an account abroad without authorization from relevant higher institutions.

Both men denied the charges and suggested their suspension was driven by politics.

On Friday SPLM Secretary General Pagan Amum also accused Kiir of targeting the two ministers for political reasons.

"The Minister who approved the transferred amount is different, how can you withdraw the immunity of Kosti and leave the person who decided and signed the transfers? I agree with Kosti that the issue was political,” Amum said.

All the four big shots who were impacted by the president’s recent actions are also members of the now 21-member of the highest organ of the SPLM, the Political Bureau.

Adding to Kiir’s woes was a public letter sent to him by ‘Friends of South Sudan’ in the US, who were staunch supporters of Juba during its struggle for independence from Khartoum, expressing their concern about the deteriorating political situation and human rights abuses.


Machar also expressed concern three months ago that since the removal of the elected governor of Lakes state, Chol Tong Mayay six months ago, the constitutional 60 days for the military caretaker governor, Maj. Gen. Matur Chut Dhuol had elapsed for a very long time.

In a letter he wrote to the president on 13th May 2013, the vice-president rang an early warning to his president about the constitutional violations in respect to non organization of elections in the state.

"I believe the main issue is the status of the Care-Taker Governor. I think your comradeship will either relieve him and re-appoint him or re-instate the elected governor Chol Tong Mayay to avoid the looming constitutional crisis," Machar told the president, citing a petition written to the president on the matter by a number of former constitutional post-holders in Lakes state.


The South Sudan Liberation Army (SSLA) faction that signed a peace deal with Juba hailed Kiir’s decision saying it is "profoundly delighted" for the appointment of Wicjang.

"It should be recalled that the mismanagement of the affairs of the Unity state by the former governor was responsible for rebellions which threatened national security of South Sudan. The failure of the former Unity State government to pursue developmental policies anchored on peace were responsible for widespread insecurity in Lakes and Warrap States. The prevalent of cattle rustling which arrested development in three states of Warrap, Lakes and Unity was caused by decadence of leadership of the former governor of Unity State" SSLA statement read.

"The appointment of Dr. Nguen Monytuil will bring permanent peace in Unity, Lakes and Warrap states and shall put to end the insecurity in Unity State which usually threatens the national security of South Sudan. It should be seriously noted that a threat to peace in Unity State is also a threat to peace in the entire South Sudan. As one of the oil producing states of South Sudan, any insecurity in Unity State could jeopardize the economic progress of South Sudan" SSLA added.

The incoming caretaker governor, who was the former national minister of health in Juba, is the brother of the recently pardoned rebel leader Maj. Gen. Bapiny Minytuil Wicjang, based in Unity state.

But some in the state expressed dismay at Kiir’s decree.

Gatkuoth Bol, a citizen of Unity state in Juba told Sudan Tribune that it was clear the president’s action was politically motivated and unconstitutional questioning the timing of it.

“You see this is purely politics. When Unity state was in crisis years ago and we the citizens of that state were crying to the president to remove governor Taban Deng even before the elections, the president himself was just laughing at us and ignoring our plea simply because Taban by then was his best friend,” Bol said.

“The president is wrong to abuse his powers by removing leaders who were elected in the same manner he was elected. He has been quoting wrong and unnecessary provisions in the transitional constitution which do not apply to the situation under which an elected governor should be removed. And even to make it worse the president has further violated the very constitution which gives a caretaker governor only 60 days in office with the only mandate to organize elections. But the president is now letting a caretaker governor stay in office indefinitely without people’s popular mandate such as in the case of Lakes state’s caretaker governor,” Gatkuoth further decried.

He also blamed what he called the “sitting duck” national legislature for allowing the president to continue to violate the transitional constitution with impunity by removing officials at will based on his own political perceptions without any intervention from the lawmakers.

“The leaderships of the national legislature are very weak and there is no capable judicial system in place to check on the actions of the president. Members in these institutions have proved to be money-makers who have nothing to do about the future of the people they allege to represent,” he said.

He also alleged that the president’s intention was to cause a division within the people of Unity state, advising that governor Taban Deng should accept to step down and provide a free entrance for the caretaker governor Joseph Nguen Minytuil, in order to avoid the intended internal crisis in the state.

Another citizen of Unity state from Bul-Nuer section where the incoming caretaker governor hails from said if Kiir’s intention was to cause a rift in Unity state between the Bul-Nuer and the rest he was wrong.

The Bul-Nuer section has been at odd with the citizens of Warrap state as they share a common border.

    To be honest, Riek Machar has hidden agenda in the country. He may be pursuing his past rebellion against the SPLM/A for more than 10 years helping Khartoum against the South,while the South was fighting both riek forces and SAF. For me that person is a cures and government of South Sudan must deal with Riek by force or other means because he was instability in the South.

      MY ADVICE: Do something for yourself, for you family. Don’t waste your time talking about politics while others are enjoying their lives with money without politics. See how this Sudanese poor woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling accident cars, Very interesting idea. Go to (USED.CO) not dot com, to see the methods and companies that she was using to do that (USED.CO) not dot com

        Kiir should stop acting irresponsibly by violating the constitution and infringing on democratic processes in the country. Kiir should be reminded that he is not a king of Awan Chan family. He should prepare to quit leadership peacefully and democratically, or else he will be responsible for any chaos if he overreacts.

        • 10 July 2013 19:44, by Adok Son

          Governor Taban Deng has done a excellene job to let Dr Nguen take the seat because plans is so clear from Kiir is mean to cause destruction among our people trying he understand the behavior of the Mayom County community now we prove him wrong no more blood as his which our unity still solid may God bless

          • 10 July 2013 19:55, by Adok Son

          Plz Midiit, Kiir must act accordingly because there R no 2 bulls in 1 cowshed. Also whate president say is constitution itself but don’t say Kiir violating constitution. I don/t know which constitution R U taking about.

          Mi diit,
          One thing I notice about Nuers idealogies is that, they never support any Dinka in leadership in any way. What do you think the future of our country would be if none of our two largest tribes don’t support each other? I do like Riek Machar to lead our country but not in a dirty way. He has a vision and we all would like to test that vision so that all South Sudanese would enjoy Freedoms

        Taban cannot just make foreign travel without permission/informing his boss, the President of RSS, whether the trip was intended to meet American government for pushing for Dr. Defector election or not. American government is not new to Dr. Defector’s agenda and track record since 1991 regardless of how he struggles to define democracy or qualitative leadership.

        • 10 July 2013 16:07, by LabotoNyom KobiYe

          Taban was in the same camp who lobbied Omer Al-Bashir to appoint them top Southern Sudan government officials in 1997 in exchange for establishment of Southern Sudan self-determination and oil to be controlled by Khartoum.

          • 10 July 2013 16:09, by LabotoNyom KobiYe

            The Jahylin’son, Omer Hassan Al-Bashir didn’t waste time to play his card because he was not a fool like them; he promised them but failed as usual to appoint Dr. Defector President of the Southern Sudan until they gave up and returned to SPLM/A without being questioned for the sake of peace and unity.

            • 10 July 2013 16:09, by LabotoNyom KobiYe

              If we south Sudanese are matured enough politically/educationally, why don’t we first ask ourselves these questions: how can you surrender to the enemy that you were/are fighting against for your freedom and at the same time expect him to grant you liberty that you didn’t get since Jesus Christ/Prophet Mohamed was born? Why did Taban and Dr. Defector return to SPLM/A in 2002?

              • 10 July 2013 16:10, by LabotoNyom KobiYe

                What was wrong with both Dr. Defectors’ (Dr. Riek & Dr. Lam) judgment of 1991? What was wrong with Khartoum Peace Agreement (KPA) of 1997? How can we contrast KPA with CPA in terms of mission, vision, values or leadership qualities and what will prove that Dr. Defector has good judgment to lead this country in 2015?

                • 10 July 2013 16:10, by LabotoNyom KobiYe

                  How can Dr. Defector claim in his recent interview that President Salva Kiir Mayardit has ruled South Sudan for 10 years now while his (Dr. Defector’s) Khartoum-based militia left behind kept threatening our security and disrupting development of South Sudan throughout the interim period plus the two years of independent South Sudan?

                  • 10 July 2013 16:11, by LabotoNyom KobiYe

                    How can the interim period of six years plus the two years of yesterday’s Independence Day, July 9th, 2013 be accounted to President Kiir’s leadership excluding him, Dr. Defector, more ever some Southerners were still in bed with NCP?

                    • 10 July 2013 16:11, by LabotoNyom KobiYe

                      Why did Dr. Defector go to Khartoum with nothing, only to massacre innocent civilians in Bor in particular and apologize later, and came back with nothing but luckily repositioned in the SPLM/A in 2002 and later appointed the second top man in the country since 2005?

                      • 10 July 2013 16:12, by LabotoNyom KobiYe

                        Why does Dr. Defector fail in his effort to win the heart and mind of most senior retired SPLA/M commanders or officers who sacrificed their lives for 21 years in the bush to achieve this hard-won freedom for his presidential bid without looking at himself first in the mirror?

                        • 10 July 2013 16:12, by LabotoNyom KobiYe

                          Dr. Defector needs to realize that we’re not neither in 1991 nor 2010 general elections where you pretend to campaign for President Kiir and at the same time you tell your wife to campaign insistently as an independent candidate for governor of Unity State….

                          • 10 July 2013 16:13, by LabotoNyom KobiYe

                            ….against the very stupid Taban Deng Gai who now claims that he is fired because of his trip to America and being suspected of meeting American government to push for Dr. Defector’s bid for 2015 presidential elections.

                            • 10 July 2013 16:15, by LabotoNyom KobiYe

                              If Dr. Defector were to be in America he would never even attempt to open his mouth to run for president regardless of how he defines democracy or qualitative leadership due to his track record of betrayal, shifting allegiance/political prostitution, massacre, you name it. I will be right back, stay tuned.

                              • 10 July 2013 17:04, by Mi diit

      See? The interim constitution gives President Kiir to fire those deem to have not met minimum expectations. It was not a surprise. The president does not have to consult his deputy about decisions like dismissing a governor. He can ask the deputy for his opinion but that is either taken into consideration or discarded in the garbage can. So Riek’s opinion does not hold water. It’s ignored, OK.

    • 10 July 2013 08:49, by Sundayw

      RIEK MACHAR is playing with fire. He has to study Kiir before going against him. It will end badly for him either way. Kiir is the president and has to run the country without having his deputy contesting his decisions in public. This is a violation of the office of the president and RIEK can be arrested for his treasonous offense. He should shut up like Lam Akol.

        @mayom county boy,how much was given to you by those individual visionless Dinka to coments againts your people negatively like that?i always see your coments and really not bearing the truth ,are you from Mayom or you just spoiling Mayom ’s to be look negatively by rest of the counties in UNity state?you said that Taban will go to Khartoum and rebelled like other Nuer men.are you not Nuer?

      • 11 July 2013 07:50, by JONGLEI VISION

        Hello Mayom County Boy,
        Plse ask Mr. President why he didn’t bring Dr. Manytuil in 2010 where the people of Unity State were interested to develop the State; if its not hidden agenda from him.
        Why he didn’t dismiss Mrs. Nyadeng Malek Governor of Warap State who her people raided the cattle in Mayom County currently. Do you believe Dr. Manytuil will allow W,p p’le to raid Mayom cattle all the time

      • 11 July 2013 15:30, by khan junior

        It is a damn shit that this person is using my county name to dirtifies it name. please dear all the so call Mayom...... is not never at all and just used the name to blackmail us.
        And to whoever abuses us as Jalaba will wi deal with you respectively!

    • 10 July 2013 12:54, by Zecharia Malong

      To be frank,
      there is no hidden agenda as kiir supporters think but there is clear indication of violation of constitution,failure of party direction n visions as well as rampant corruption ETC>>.
      Who is still not aware about these facts in S. Sudan here?
      This time s.sudan need a good leader who is capable of building our nation with its institutions rather than clinging on incompetent leader .

    This is clearly showing there is row between the two presidents. When Kiir does something the citizens want, Riek is against it.Riek encouraged his wife to be Governor and when she failed , she encouraged her supporters to rebel against Taban. So instead to be happy, they are asking for reverse. The entire population of unity state have been crying to remove Taban. So what is the reason now?

    Look at Dr. Riak you now try to cook Taban sacking by president while he appoint the same Nuer. You always talk of tribal division while you are one make such division among us. If you just assumed that removal of Taban will create tension what they Nuer do the can do so even if it not on their mind. Mr Riak you should have send word of calm rather than going to conclusion of encourage tension.

    • 10 July 2013 09:12, by pabaak

      organizing the election commission to ensure transparent results, because what I have observed now is many politicians want to become President at their own quest leaving out the very powerful tools to get them to the Power, the "people" who give power out to persons. People will know who have or will serve them, that’s why I don’t support the idea that PolitBurea + NLC will alone make decision

We need to push for selection of the party Representative in primaries and general election decided by people only.

    The days for dictators are numbered, Salva Kiir and his indirect Vice President Daniel Awet Akot will soon end. Kiir must distance himself for these dictators pple like Awet Akot, Paul Mayom Akech, Tor Deng Mawien who works for Gogrial benefits. Awet and Mayom are selfish who do not want other pple in leadership except their childrens. Plse kiir fired mayom and Awet and replace them with good pple

      Dr. Riek,
      you still want to revive your ill intention of 1991 which led us almost failed due to division within SPLM/A?What happen to SPLM/A Nasir faction that you formed with Lam Akol Ajaween?why are you so eager for leadership?my advice to you is that do not do things in rush you still have time ahead to ruled South Sudan.our current moto is peace but not conflict of interest.

    I advise Dr.Riek to be very careful and patient when taking decision like this.Where were you when the governor of lakes was dismissed? You didn’t react in the case of Chol like what happened now to Taban.Please, this will make tribalism out of control.You have right to challenge your boss but do it in respectful manner. Show fairness please !!!!.Media will harm your presidential ambition.

  • 10 July 2013 09:37, by Nyesi Ta

    Democracy under systematic assault. 2010 election was un democratic because the elections were rigged. The SPLM rigged and declared 9 governors the winners of that election. Governor Bakosoro was the only one who was legitimately elected by the people of his state. There is no democracy in S. Sudan my fellow country men.

    • 10 July 2013 09:48, by Nyesi Ta

    • 10 July 2013 09:59, by Chol A.

      Mokili you are right bro Riak is misleading some fellow south Sudanese but it could good for him to form different party apart from Splm and than do such challengers to Kiir leadership. I could not understand what sort of leadership he want while they both failing to handle us.what things he will work better than Kiir since he now in clear failure in manage some circle within his Nuer people!.

        but Kiir should not use it as political game to divide and rule the people.

    Is the relationship between Machar and Taban Deng is warming and friendly?!
    Ironically,the relationship between Machar and Taban Deng was never pleasant relationship despite the two politicians are coming from Nuer tribe, remember when both of them defected SPLA/M during mid ninety and signed peace agreement with Khartoum?

    • 10 July 2013 11:14, by Jalaby

      Taban Deng went against Machar and defected his group and returned back to SPLA/M again, and later he accused Machar of using his VP position and imposing his wife,Angelina Teny and winning the Unity State governor seat for her during the April 2010 elections when Taban Deng was also the incumbent governor, both of them exchanged the accusations at that time,

      • 10 July 2013 11:18, by Jalaby

        Ironically, president Kiir was supporting Taban Deng at that time against Machar’s wife, Angelina Teny!
        Now, some news saying that Taban Deng has moved to Machar group again favoring him over Mr. Kiir and tried to convince Susan Rice of supporting Machar against Kiir in his last visit to US, this is so interesting news if it’s true!

        • 10 July 2013 11:30, by Jalaby

          Does really Machar believe Mr. Kiir violated the country constitution by removing Taban? why he didn’t object when Mr. Kiir removed the Lakes State governor before if he raises this concern as VP?!
          I believe Machar knows that Kiir is using his power according to the constitution that allows Kiir to sack even elected governor

            There is rumor saying that Machar is next in Mr. Kiir "sacking" list, Kiir is going crazy now and surprising everybody and doesn’t care about the sequences at all.
            Could Machar be the next?
            I personally don’t be surprised if it happened but Machar is red line that Mr. Kiir shouldn’t dare to cross!

                As for his removal, Kiir must think twice. Machar didn’t commit a crime by telling his boss to give way for others. This is a democratic right of every citizen. Kiir should just say let us go for the elections in SPLM and 2015.

He was forgiven if he can quell nuer from rebellion but hell, he still pursue rebelion about leadership, leaving Nuer still being used by OMAR BASHIR.

    It’s a waste of time talking about elections since non of the coward Jaang/Slave will vote for him including Nyandeng’s groups who pretend to support him. But in reality, they’re dong that because they don’t want 1991 incdident to repeat itself in their towns/villages.

    All the Splm leaders at the top have become irrelevant to lead S. Sudan. The youth league of the splm is the only modern political machinery to provide fine leadership to our people as well as the services needed. Let the wolfs go, for we would not allow them to use us this time.

    Sorry guys ,Taban has been wrong element since 1989 when Riak rebeled against SPLA ,so do not blame Riak they are still planning their Nyagat issues which will not work this time . My advice to our president is that he should removed Riak after all who elected him, he was appoited by the president ,throw Nyagats all away.

    please be more accurate with your comments. There is no what so-called Dinka Bor or Bor Massacre. What we have is Dinka massacre, Upper Nile Dinka Massacre, Greater Upper Nile Massacre, Jonglei Dinka massacre, etc. Also you have to learn what Governor Kuol means by word "Co-existence." It has deep meaning concerning your wrong messages as always.

    Dr. Riak and his supporters are free to leave SPLM and form their own party or whatever. They don’t belong to revere people’s (SPLM) party anyway. No one can support wrong doing or failure of the president but Riak has no creditability to be a solution.

      Kiir Tikyualkuoth has completely failed that he is even rejected by wild cats,cows,dogs and all wild animals cus they are suffering in the same way their masters are suffering.He and his corruption Engineers will go and we need only the world class president Dr Riek to lead our attack to development in 2015 beyond.

            Do you know what is that name mean mr coward? it’s a good news for us any way if Dinkas has became warriors in the 21st century, though, it’s not in a history book. That will bost our territorial defence from regional and interntional invasions.

      Dear Kenyang,
      Plse its not Dinka/ Nuer nor others tribes in the Countrywide party; its for all of the well wishers who will safe this nation in right vision and mission regardless of your tribal ideology.
      Who has credibility if Dr. Machar has not, is it your currently Sultan Gen. Kiir or who? How? can you prove it right.

  • 11 July 2013 06:19, by Odingo

    Not gonna happen Dr. Riek for Kiir to reverse his decision to bring back governor Taban because if he did, Lake State governor will come back too, and World gonna see Pres Kiir as useless and primitive president in the whole world. What he created was just a act of evil. Kiir want to see Nuer killing themselve so that during the election the nuer Kingdom will be more divided and is notgonna happe

    Folk, what do you think of the removal of the states governor by the president Salva Kiir? mostly civil war is drawing closer, violent, untrustworthy. Let just wait and watch what going to happen next.

  • 11 July 2013 09:19, by Guandong

    Dr.Machar is right bcoz as an independence country we must act as per our country is constitution.That is our guidance.
    Mr.Kiir can remove u whent u correct him n promote u when u blindfull him.
    This is not an individual property but a country with rule.
    I encourage Machar to go ahead as to depence the right of innoence ppl, Mr Kiir will be accountable on any violance may happen in the 2yrs old c.
