Deputy Mayor of Juba says people working for Kiir created many enemies for him
June 5th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – The deputy Mayor of Juba town, Thiik Thiik Mayardiit, who is also President Salva Kiir’s nephew said people working with the president have created a lot of problems for him.
Thiik was speaking to the Australia-based SBS Dinka Radio in an interview published on Wednesday.
“I think it the best time, to tell the truth about President Kiir,” Thiik said. “People who are working for President Kiir have created a lot of enemies for him.”
He accused presidential press secretary, Ateny Wek Ateny of using wrong statements about president Salva Kiir that contradicts the actual fact against the President
“Ateny Wek Ateny has always misrepresented the President or use his position to release wrong statements on behalf of the President,” he said.
“[The] President is a good man, but people have taken advantage of him in many ways. I have always thought President should be out meeting his people because they love him, but he is misinformed about the dangers awaiting him,” he added.
He further added that members of Mayardiit family “are being sidelined and misrepresented. Kiir is the only child among his 9 siblings to go to school and there no one in our family of his age that can help him. No, that I am in politics, I think it is time to tell the real stories of the man I know but now what people say. President Kiir needs this country to have peace, and this must be achieved.”
