July 22, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —— South Sudan’s First Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, calls on President Salva Kiir to relieve the Minister of Mining Taban Deng Gai with “immediate effect”.

The first vice president recalls the Minister of Mining as stipulated in a Peace Agreement the two leaders signed in August last year.

Dr. Machar boldy states the order, which comes to effect on the date of its signing, somewhere in unknown location outside the capital, Juba.

“In exercise of the my powers, as The First Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan, as per the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan, Article 6, I hereby withdraw and recall Gen. Taban Deng Gai as Minister of Mining in the Transitional Government of National Unity as from today, July 22nd, 2016” The First Vice President States.

“I am asking Your Excellency to relieve him with immediate effect” he continued.

Machar promises Kiir that he will nominate Taban’s replacement as soon as he returns to the capital once security is established.

“I will nominate his replacement as soon as I return to Juba once the security arrangement is put in place by a third party force as per the comminique of the IGAD Council of Ministers meeting in Nairobi, on 11th, July 2016” Machar said.

In a similar commitment, president Salva Kiir assured a group of Nuer loyal politicians this week that he won’t replace the First Vice President as claimed, a statement which critics believe was made for media consuption.

In other reports, Mr. Kiir has given his First Vice President upto 48 hours since Thursday to return to Juba or else risk untold consequences.

Machar has repeatedly restated that he won’t return to the capital until the deterrent force is establish to act as a buffer zone between his forces and those of president Salva Kiir.

    As soon as possible Dr. Machar will go back to Juba wen the arrangements of deployment has done by AU and to make all Intervention has success due to your stupity which will lead you to be burns.

  • Dear Brothers,
    The incident which happened at J1 in Juba, it was intended by AU, UN, IGAD & two presidents of Kenyan and Ethiopia their aim were to kill Kiir Mayardit that’s sure deal by among. now we ‘re warning that if they attempt to bring the foreigner troops, we will not join East Africans Communities anymore this is absolutely wrong and it’s a crime to consider such decision

    There is no intervention of foreigners troops to south Sudan

  • Tolio

    Congratulations to General Taban Deng for succeeding Riek Machar.

  • Tolio

    Members of the SPLMIO political bureau have spoken. Their Democratic move to point Taban Deng as their acting vice president representing them in the transitional government until Riek Machar come is irreversible. The president has no jurisdiction to fire Mr Deng Gai since he belongs to the opposite party and Riek Machar should know that fact.

  • May Almighty bring back peace so that we can gain momentum as South Sudanese. We are brothers let leave alone that issue of saying that is Nuer and Dinka

  • Riek is stuphid. Why is he hiding what change can he bring to the people of ss, he only brought suffering to his nuer people and at the end no victory how many wars has he fought and how many innocent lives has he took and yet no benefit. Vice president and president have no
    big differences so what has he done to be remembered by ss people during his working days with Kiir. War with out knowledge is useless

  • koat chuol Banguot

    I like what is president omer elbashir.we us we dont to allow tabang deng gai to come back again to spla io thank I don’t talking and more

  • I believe the deployment of the third force to juba is another step to save the life of the citizen of south sudan.remember what we are doing in south sudan is well known to each and every one whether on earth or in heaven. though we are trying to be cleverers course we think is not seen but we are only foolishing ourselves.

    My advice is that for you to be a wise president don’t be advise by evil men whether they are you mum,dad,uncle,unti,grandfather,grandmother,advisor,spokesperson,community leaders course we believe when the end comes then their would be the consequences

  • Jackson Richard

    Lets not Instigate war. We are One people and One Nation by blamg one another we are building a huge temple of hatred which will last till générations of our children are gone, Remember what you do today determines your future tomorow we pray for peace to prevail so that all of us shall jubilate together once there arises happiness As explained by the two leaders if both settle their différences all will come to pass

    This is a great Nation no one wants it to fall rather the little misunderstanding led to this its not TRIBAL as was understood

    Jackson, Kampala uganda

  • Firstly I appreciated The Democrat leader in South Sudan Dr Riek Machar for his firm stand for peace implementation to save the wonder country which has been lost by leadership of wine takers /cows seekers. Unlucky New Nation led into No where. Secondly I want to tell those who plays with fire by self motives to replace Dr Machar by Gen.Taban Deng that their attempt is meaningless ! NUER can not can not be led now adays minus Machar.! And to ridd off IO From Future Govt.is like running after Wind.

  • is right decision mr president
    we do appreciate your work because we don’t some one who need fighting but some one who will work batter with you…is itching some people but Taban is good man….so late dog will eat the borne

  • dear my brothers and sisters of southern sudan you really need prayers for your country.
    stay as one people one nation.
    the right leader will come out one day.
