“Kiir cares about his parameters only at J1 and it shows lack of responsibility,” she said criticizing the recent speeches of the president Salva Kiir who said he regrets sparing the life of the former First Vice President Riek Machar and the former detainees under the leadership of the former SPLM party Secretary General Pagan Amum Okiech adding that she is “sorry” that we have such presidents in South Sudan.
“I am not happy about what Kiir said. I am sorry because we have such a president in South Sudan. I am sorry,” she told Nyamilpedia.
Nyandeng urged the country to unite their ranks for the sake of the country and remove any leader who tells South Sudanese to exist along tribal lines.
“Leaders will come and go, so the people of South Sudan should not allow themselves to divide along ethnic lines by leaders. Any leader calling for South Sudan to exist as tribes must be removed. ” she said.
