The informal situation research finding stated that the three (3) governors namely H.E. John Kong Nyuon, H.E. Rezik Zakaria and H.E. Louis Lobong remains loyal to Salva Kiir regime and their position is due to some personal obligations. These governors also believe that government and the SPLM Party have lost vision and direction but chosen to remains with Salva Kiir as long as it may take. The informal facts finding believe that H.E. Louis Lobong may be forced to abandon Salva Kiir regime by two Equatorian Governors when worse come to worse.
The experiences from many regimes stated that losing political support and loyalty from Governors and Commissioner is signal of danger because Governors and commissioners represent the will and position of the majority within the country and can play great role to protect the regime. The reality is that President Kiir regime is at the dead end and will have no choice than making peaceful settlement of the ongoing crisis or risk being overthrown militarily, economically and politically because he lost legitimacy before the citizens and his own key allies within his cabinets.
The fall of President Kiir is eminent and any peace will only rescue him.
