October 2, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — South Sudan’s incumbent president, Mr. Salva Kiir Mayardit, has issued a rarely expected republican degree that creates more states in the Republic of South Sudan after the armed Opposition champions the cause in their controlled areas.

According to republic decree no. Salva Kiir creates 18 more states to add to the currently existing ten states, a process that may complicate the recently signed peace agreement.

In 2014, the First Vice President Designate, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, created 21 states that were driven from the previous colonial districts.

According to Dr. Machar, creating more states would spiral development and brings services close to the people at the grassroots.

The Opposition, however, demands that a federal system must be established in the country for such a system to be effective.

Many critics believe that such a broad system may not be well funded by a centralized government, however, the proponents argue that having more states will stabilize the country and boost economy across the country.

It’s yet to be known how the recently created states would be factored into power sharing arrangement but both sides seem to agree on this one idea.

The creation of 28 states by President Kiir has been positively welcomed by many supporters of the oppositions, who demand federalism, but it leaves confusion among the government supporters!

  • Copy and paste work without editing makes you stupid in mind.

  • Bentiu Ramaran

    Kiir is the most world foolish presidents. He drunk first and then passed laws that he did not even know the consequences.

    • Stop embarrassing yourself because drinking is not forbidden in the Global and Kiir himself is not a child because he knows what he is doing. 28 States are going to become 28 provinces in the name of developments,whether you like it or not. We will vote for it in referendum. Our people are tired of top positions. Bravo government in Juba and job well done. Best ever.

  • Lualdit

    Jaang ci ke laac luak mi thiel thok, E thuok Paany!
    Who is going to accept this nonsense of the Jaang devil council. Well, let coward tribes figure that out. As for me, I have made my choice to never live with the jaang again. Never! For naath to have their own states, that is even better, but the idea and the concept that Jaang devil council is devising is that they will maintain control, and have access to the oil. The whole idea is stupid and it’s declaration of war. Let international community pay attention.

  • I think guy is not in touch with reality about south sudan because people are dying of hunger and if he has budget to be allocated to states he just created why let him feed the people first and create 28 after that this guy is absurd who needs be hospitalized. I did like dr machar in first place but he plans is much more better than mr kirr plans which could not provide us with reason for creation of so many states while people are suffering where will get the budget to fund all these states.
