South Sudan’s Kiir projected as the least educated head of state in Africa
March 12th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan President, Salva Kiir Mayardiit, has been projected by a continental news agency as the least educated African head of state for the year 2019 following the departure of South African’s former President, Jacob Zuma, last year.
According to the projection, President “Salva Kiir joined the military at a very tender age and is not known to have received any form of formal education making him number one on the list of least educated African Presidents after South Africa’s Jacob Zuma’s retirement.”
“Looking at his educational qualification, apart from being a graduate of the Sudan Military College, the Man has no further Education,” added the continental Answers African.
Kiir has been the President of the world’s youngest nation, South Sudan since it gained independence from its northern neighbor, Sudan in July 2011. Before that, he was the First Vice-President and the President of the Government of Southern Sudan or GOSS.
He has been a subject of international uproar over the killings of ethnic Nuer civilians in December 2013 in which international human rights organizations accused a militia group only answerable to him of carrying out the killing.
