In a separate Republican Decree, the President appointed Dr. Victoria Anib Majur as the new Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health.

Anita Morsan of Eastern Equatoria State and Hon. John Madeng Chan of Jonglei State, both from the SPLM were appointed to the RTNLA to replace members who lost their positions.
