Gabriel Changson appointed South Sudan’s higher education minister


July 15, 2020 (JUBA) - South Sudanese President Salva Kiir on Wednesday has appointed Gabriel Changson Chang as the new Minister of Higher Education.

 Gabriel Changson Chang (file/ST)Chang who is also the chairman of the Federal Democratic Party (FDP) replaces Denay Jok Chagor who is appointed Governor of Jonglei State.

The two politicians are members of the South Sudan Opposition Alliance. Also, the two-positions are allocated to the alliance.

With Chagor’s appointment as Jonglei governor, the Upper Nile State remains the only state without governor in South Sudan. President Kiir declined to appoint Johnson Olony as the Upper Nile State Governor.

In a parallel development, President Kiir appointed Deng Alor Kuol minister for East African Community Affairs replacing the late John Luk Jok.

The two men belong to the Former Political Detainees group.

    So Mr.Kiirimnal is still fearing to appoint Olony right? Thanks for appointing Nuer in Ngundeng City/Mading Bor. Please appoint UNS governor before your days expire in your office.

        This shows that SS has no youth capable of bringing about any changes. Like fathers like sons, the same shit. Equatorians are for EQUATEXIT, that is the only way out.

        • 16 July 09:48, by South South


          Monkey, the way out is to come back to Juba, bow down in front of me and ask for forgiveness. I will consider that for you when I have enough time later, but for now, nothing will change. Country is under controlled and monkeys are crying as usual.

            Giant gorillas can be dangerous if let loose. They cause chaos, devastate and plunder anything. Ya jellaba slave, we Baris/Equatorians owned like house slaves and you carried for us water. It’s our God-given rights to civilised and bring you to light cuz you’ve no intelligent brains. You come to Juba thinking eating monkeys would make you intelligent?

              Stupid old man. There is nothing to eat in Bari land. Even the new corns we eat in Juba right is coming from Eastern Equatoria. What I see right now on the streets of Juba are bari children begging people for "Guruch". Dirty people and very ugly people.

          Hopeless jienge! At almost 45 years you still have no fixed job, regular income not even a house for your parents, if any at all. You depend on handouts and stolen monies to survive in Kenya or Uganda. Kokora is there to stay and I’ll say bye bye aryan jienge as head toward jiengelands. Go develop your fathers home, ya jienge wisik.

            Monkey, I own 300 cows. How do you call that monkey? Very rich man, right? Nothing in Bari land. The food we have in Juba right comes from other states of South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya and interantional communities. Bari are good of begging only. Shut up your dirty mouth.

      Nueri Dial,

      You are really one of the stupidest Nuer I have ever seen in my life. Nuers in Bor are in PoCs only, the best place for them. Bor is under controlled by SSPDF and National Security, both are ready to teach and betrayers very dear lessons in battle field.

      • 16 July 11:09, by Nueri Dial

        Those children and women in PoC Juba and Bor is not an indication that the city is not for them but are avoiding brutal torturing they are enforced into. Check Pajut and Duk, they are speaking Nuer and proud to be Nuer. By the way what are your People doing in Minkaman Camp if you are in full control of Bor?

        • 16 July 17:01, by Khent

          Nueri Dial

          You don’t even control most of your tribal territory and you’re posturing online. LOL! The Dinka in Duk county speak Dinka but are also trilingual; they are proud to be Dinka and they participated in the counterattacks against the Nuer in 91-92 — like the other Dinka sections in Jonglei and Bahr El Ghazal. This is why you lost.

      Anything that can bring peace to this country we need it, those who have hiding agenda or reservations will face it in due course.

      • 16 July 13:59, by jubaone

        Midit Mitot
        Without peace in Equatoria, all what you are writing is worthless. Look at jienge giant gorillas, they have had peace since 2005 till today so what? Nothing. Only full peace in Equatoria matters. Equatoria is key, the rest are just auxiliaries without importance. Without Gen Thomas, Equatoria is not peaceful.

        • 16 July 15:38, by Midit Mitot


          You can not be conformable while one part of your body is suffering from infection, yes I do agreed!

          But we must bring back Thomas Cirrilo by peace not war. leave alone the self-proclaimed government owning, they will regretted later on.

          • 16 July 15:43, by jubaone

            Midit Mitot
            Now you are talking. This is the only way. Jienge can’t defeat anyone and see where the nyors are, all gone. NAS is here to stay.

            • 16 July 17:13, by Khent


              That’s progress of a kind. The Equatorians, Nuer, Shilluk and Dinka cannot win this war, so a truly comprehensive peace agreement is needed.

              • 16 July 20:16, by jubaone

                That’s correct. However, there’s so much inter- as well as intra ethnic bitterness that it is impossible to resuscitate the national dynamism of the 80 and 90s. It will get worse b4 it gets anywhere better. SS lacks a unifying figure that can show the way forward. SS must first breakup in order to be fixed, I see no options.

                • 16 July 20:37, by Khent


                  There is a great deal of bitterness and it will be exceedingly difficult to overcome and it will take a very long time to achieve it. Also, once you "break up", there is no possibility of re-unification, so that’s a non-starter. We need a Federal system similar to what Australia has in place...

                  • 16 July 20:49, by Khent

                    We also need to adopt a stringent, high-octane professional standard in both the public and private spheres; for employment prospects, we should establish a number system that omits names, regional and tribal origins; qualifications, credentials and experience are all that should be included. We could outsource this to a board of international experts.

                  • 16 July 22:06, by jubaone

                    Federalism is what NAS is strongly advocating. However, regional anxiety, the Kokora trauma for many non Equatorians is scary. On the other hand, development is highly asymmetric in favour of Equatoria while the rest are lagging behind. A federal model that ensures labour and financial transfers to less developed states is possible. Not everyone must come to Juba. Here lies the problem.

                    • 16 July 22:12, by jubaone

                      Different ethnicities must be encouraged to return to their ancestral lands with practical peace incentives while ensuring that the rule of law is put in place. Lawlessness, revenge killings, hopelessness are the key drivers for rural-urban migration. This must stop and the respective leaders must go back to start developing their areas. You cant talk of federalism while in Juba!

                      • 16 July 22:20, by jubaone

                        I strongly believe in meritocracy instead of bloated democracy that doesn’t deliver. Who cares, if e.g. the whole presidency and govt were from one ethnic group and really delivered? I’m fine with that. Rather a benevolent dictator that delivers than a ruthless and block-headed idiot as president, one who can’t do anything for his people. Here lies the SS tragedy.

                    • 16 July 22:15, by Khent


                      Yes, we do need Federalism to take effect but it must be reasonable; Thomas Cirillo has already mentioned that he wants a "house of Nationalities"; this would mean that ethnic and tribal identity will always be at the forefront of our political system. Representation should be based on States, not tribes...

                      • 16 July 22:22, by Khent

                        I’ve already mentioned that Equatoria is not any better positioned on a human capital level than the other regions; like every other regime in Africa, the one in Juba has concentrated the only development projects in the capital. The Dinka and Nuee will leave Equatoria when the capital is moved to Ramciel. We need to implement Garang’s plan of comprehensive development.

                        • 16 July 22:35, by Khent

                          I agree that performance is critical, but I think that a meritocracy would essentially ensure that one tribe does not dominate the political environment. I don’t think we have a tribe (or a collection thereof) that has a monopoly on education, so a system that prioritise a high level of professionalism would be truly representative.

                      • 16 July 22:31, by jubaone

                        Precisely. The problem lies in the absence of a national ethos. If we believed in ourselves and allowed each to develop within that "Junubin-ess", things would be different now. No country in the region wants a stable and strong SS, all are scared and the Kiirminal is just the perfect and useful idiot to maintain this status quo. That’s the reason they killed Dr Garang.

                        • 16 July 22:46, by Khent


                          That’s exactly what we need. People need to return to their own homelands and develop them instead of squatting in one Region. I would start by forcing the Dinka Bor to move out of Nimule. Salva Kiir is a compromised moron and a bit of a Quisling. I’m also certain that Garang was eliminated because he could not be so easily controlled.
