Top Bakosoro aide resigns over shift in ‘political strategy’
November 25th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – A senior opposition figure belonging to South Sudan National Movement for Change (SSNMC) led by ex-Western Equatoria state governor Joseph Bakosoro has resigned citing what he said is a shift in political strategy.
Daniel Zingifuaboro who served as spokesman for SSNMC said the group led by Bakosoro has lost its stances and positions over what he said are self-motivations from the top leadership of the opposition group.
“Our political strategy is so naive that we have abandoned good intentions and good will for cheap, flawed, self-motivated and short-term political gains,” Zingifuaboro said in a letter dated November 21st.
“We are now not the organisation needy folks hoped trusted and had confidence in. We have lost, at least for now, our moral and political conviction and intelligence,” the letter added.
Zingifuaboro further said: “We have, unfortunately, succumbed to the temptations and pressures of poverty, forgetting that it is in sacrifice that we would have found favour with God to truly serve his people.”
