SPLM rift deepens as S. Sudan VP denies deviation from vision


December 10, 2013 (JUBA) - South Sudan’s vice president James Wani Igga has denied that there is a crisis within the leadership of the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement, following a highly critical press conference last week by disaffected senior members.

James Wani Igga, Speaker of South Sudan’s National Legislative Assembly (ST)

The leadership of South Sudan’s ruling SPLM remains sharply divided, with key figures coming out to trade accusations over the failure to to deliver basic services to people in accordance with vision and objectives of the former rebel group.

In their first media appearance as a group, the officials accused President Salva Kiir of exhibiting dictatorial tendencies and pursuing a misguided leadership which has paralysed the functions of the party.

Igga, in his capacity as a deputy chairperson of the SPLM, dismissed the allegations as an attempt to "mislead those not following events in the leadership" and said that individuals who had been removed from their positions had decided to discredit and distort facts about the leadership.

"It is ludicrous for the group, especially the suspended secretary general to claim that it has been difficult to translate SPLM resolutions into plans of action”, said Igga in a press statement.

The internal rift, which initially grabbed the public attention after the group failed to reach a consensus on the final status of the party’s basic documents, surfaced in March but deepened in July, when President Salva Kiir Mayardit, the SPLM chairperson, dissolved the entire cabinet.

As part of a major shakeup, he removed his long-time deputy Riek Machar from the position he held for eight years and replaced him with James Wani Igga, formerly, the speaker of the National Legislative Assembly.

Machar welcomed the changes and moved to assume his roles as the first deputy chairperson in the ruling party. Kiir, in his capacity as the party leader, also issued an order suspending Pagan Amum from his position as SPLM secretary general, and assembling a team to investigate his conduct and barring him from travelling abroad.

In November, Kiir said all the structures of the party have "dissolved themselves" with the exception of his office, arguing that their "legitimacy of continuity" had expired after failing to hold a national convention in accordance with the 2008 constitution, which permits a five year term.

Two other senior SPLM members, Chol Tong Mayay of Lakes state and Taban Deng Gai of Unity state were removed from their elected positions as governors.

The SPLM members also said that the party had abandoned collective leadership and had demobilising knowledgeable armed officers, making them redundant after retiring from active service.

The group at the press conference was led by the first deputy, Riek Machar, suspended secretary general, Pagan Amum, former deputy defense minister, Majak D’ Agoot and transport and bridges minister, Gier Chuang Aluong.

Other senior figures who attended the event, included the widow of the former SPLM leader John Garang de Mabior, Rebecca Nyandeng de Mabior, former minister of Justice John Luk Jok, former cabinet minister Deng Alor Kuol, former environment minister; Alfred Lado Gore, the two dismissed governors of Lakes and Unite state.

Several other government officials, some of whom are serving cabinet ministers and members of the party, came out in support of the vice president and claimed that the officials who criticised the conduct of the government planned to form a separate party.

"There is no way members of the same party can come out in the open to publicly accuse their own leader and discredit the same institution. I have never found anywhere. I think they have already formed a party which they would launch soon, otherwise they would not behave like that", Lual Bol Kuan, spokesperson of South Sudan business community and SPLM member, told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday.


Kuan further claimed that the activities of the group would also discourage investors from coming into the country on the grounds that their properties would not be safe.

"The press conference was called at the time [last weeks] investment conference was convened. It was a deliberate ploy devised to back track [on] the assurances made by the government at the investment conference with serious allegations but they will not succeed. We will not keep quiet because we are stakeholders in this country. We fought for it. My whole youth was in the bush and I cannot accept some people with individual interests to return us to square one", Kuan told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday.

The business leader also denied that president Kiir avoids collective leadership when making decisions on matters of national importance, citing numerous consultative meetings.

The "president consulted all the institutions to seek their views before the new cabinet was formed. The entire SPLM leadership except few who did not want to accept the change approved the changes the general public wanted to be introduced", Kuan explained.

The official wondered what new things the officials would do that they could not do while serving in senior government and party positions for eight years.

"We are only the country in the whole world where a minister can negotiate and sign a contractor without witness and request release of funds before verifying whether or not the contractor had actually has business that the contractor is based upon, let ensuring that services are provided first. We have seen happened when these people were in the government, some things happened in the ministries and institutions they were in complete control", he explained.


Peter Adwok Nyaba, a former minister of higher education, denied there is any plan to form a different a separate party among the disenfranchised SPLM members but that they were fighting for internal reform.

"The changes of the necessity must come from within the SPLM leadership whether or not the drivers are devils or angels", said Nyaba in comments.

"Revolutions are started and driven by those who have been involved in the oppressive regime by the virtue of their intimidate knowledge and interaction with it they kick start the process. Neither the passive nor absentees can alter what is going on in South Sudan," argued the veteran politician.

"I disagree with those who seem to suggest in the barrage of negative adjectives that anybody who participated in the SPLM government is incapable of initiating process leading to transformation of the oppressive condition", he said.

    What does the symbolic yes-man comedian Wani Igga know about Kiir’s real intentions? He is simply told to turn left or right, and he follows. The man has no principles of his own.

        • 11 December 2013 08:01, by Mi diit

          Incompetent Kiir is like a SERIOUSLY wounded he-goat with broken horns. Yet he is blindly greedy with power, wanting to leave like Muammer Gaddafi or Hosni Mubarak, NOT leaving a legacy like Nelson Mandela. He may pretend to be in control, but will soon feel like a fish thrown out of the water. Ahahahahaaaaaaaa............

          • 11 December 2013 15:00, by Mr Point

            Those who attack President-for-his-Lifetime Kiir for the anti democratic way he has taken the party away from its ideals should see how happy the communities in Warrap and Bahr el Ghazal are with their Governors.

      • 11 December 2013 08:19, by Pure Nationalist

        I could resign if I were Wani Igga because no one would like to fill a bottomless barrel with liquid unless he is mad, Wani was humiliated by lying to journalists that the NLC meeting would go as planned while his boss was not for that. He was just crying to please his boss trying to answer what he was not about. Learn your boss’s intention before jumping up & down thinking that you were pleasing

        • 11 December 2013 08:21, by Pure Nationalist

          • 11 December 2013 08:37, by Pure Nationalist

            No country on earth where president can own businesses without declaring them to the public, ABMC is his, do you think national properties are safe? A lot of money went missing even in the president office, where do you think it goes? 4.5 billion from current oil production is unaccounted for, where do you think it is? Poor Wani Igga will be the victim of denial by trying to please boss.

        • 11 December 2013 08:53, by Mi diit

          Pure nationalist,
          You are absolutely right. Wani Igga doesn’t know Kiir’s real intentions. He is a simple yes-man, enduring humiliations. On Abyei he said we are with you, on structures he said not dissolved, on NLC he said meeting tomorrow, but Kiir reversed every thing in his face. Shame...

          • 11 December 2013 10:24, by Mi diit

            BREAKING NEWS,
            Incompetent Kiir is urgently back to Nairobi from South Africa as we speak. I am told he was embarrassed by US ambassador to UN Susan Rice yesterday in Johannesburg. Kiir is now sobbing in a hotel in Nairobi like a deported person back to South Sudan. Ahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...........The incompetent faced the deserved humiliation among world leaders...

        Does freedom of expression mean tell the public how you chew food, what has happened in the bedroom because a couple is blessed with baby that the whole world is proud of or how and why the world is controlled by the powerful corporations?

        • 11 December 2013 08:23, by Adodi Jotuwa

          Even in the West, why media report only about someone’s wealth but not how it’s strategically planned? Can media have access to its blue print and expose the fundamental flaws or because it’s none of media business? Which media outlet is "fair" in its reporting in this world? Name one please and why?

          • 11 December 2013 08:24, by Adodi Jotuwa

            If the two years old South Sudan is to adopt the imported freedom of expression or democracy of the West as opposed to homegrown by Dr. Defector, how will it fit educationally, technologically, culturally, economically and politically into our current climate? Does the two years old democracy of South Sudan differ with the one of nearly 300 years old of USA and Europe? If yes or no, why?

      • 11 December 2013 08:46, by Mayom County Boy

          Tell me how democracy is grown at home. What are the steps? And his incompetent Kiir taking a step in building democracy at home, or is he building dictatorship imported from Khartoum and Uganda. Please stop lying and talking nonsense here. What is wrong with the Western democracy when you have already adopted the Western institutionalizations of government? Shut up!!!

          • 11 December 2013 16:57, by Aweil the Role Model State 4peace

            The steps are;
            1. Massacring of innocent civillians like that of 1991 by democratic activist Dr. Traitor Riek.
            2. Frequent rebellion
            3. Mobilise former corruptist ministers to back you and promise to reappoint them to their previous positions after 8years without achievements.
            4. working against your colleague with an intention to degrade him so that you can be the next president.

              So what happened after the sudden death of New Sudan project Godfather Dr. John Garang?
              Ironically, SPLA/M had made unprecedented movement from far left to far right and overnight changed its vision from one New Sudan to nothing but merely separation from north, that major vision change had no platform to host it and was never planned before and that made SPLA/M

                lacks for true vision and then lost the political compass!!
                They adopted new project which was "separation" and they worked very hard to achieve it and they succeeded on that project with 98% yes for separation but ironically they didn’t have any project and clear vision for building state beyond the separation, nothing for building a nation and democratic country!

                  In fact SPLA/M remained nothing but completely visionless body and that led to what we see now in the south of conflict, poverty, starvation and clear failed state, they were not sure what to do with SPLA-N and finally decided to send them home without even saying "Thank you" to them for fighting with them before and liberating many cities in the south from SAF hand!!

                    You guys should ask yourself why British Administration changed their mind of separating the south from north after they did many steps towards separating it and did what ever they could to make it real?
                    Ask yourself, why US administration was so reluctant in separating the south but were so eager about Garang’s philosophy of New Sudan theme?!

                    • 11 December 2013 14:58, by Jalaby

                      What? the south does not have the true and real elements of building state?!
                      Look around you,look at your neighbor CAR,look at your neighbor Congo,look to the fragile situation in Uganda and ask yourself,what was the real reason behind the fighting? will we be infected or we already have the same disease in our bodies?
                      I’m telling you, the worse has yet to come!

                        Dear, brother Jallaby
                        As always you’re 1000% right. The major bigger problem with Southerns is that they never learned to the better. And Most of them did went to school and yet their minds haven’t change. Their education is not really help them and I think the best thing to be done now is for Sudan government to take over. I always feel sorry for they done to SPLA/N too.Thank you Jallaby!

                          i can see you are having multiple orgasms thinking that the rift in SPLM will give you a chance to take back the south. Pipe dreams.
