Feb 03, 2021(Nyamilepedia) — South Sudan Anti-Corruption Forum has called on the president to fire the Managing Director of the state-owned NILEPET, Eng. Bol Ring Muorwel over rampant corruption and nepotism.
In an open letter addressed to President Kiir, the group exposed widespread misappropriation and nepotism in the Nile Petroleum Corporation Company under the leadership of Mr. Bol Ring.
“The leadership of South Sudan Anti Corruption Forum decided to write this open letter in response to the public cries against the rampant corrupt practices which Eng. Bol Ring and his relatives are undertaking in the national oil company,” the open letter addressed to President Kiir reads in part.
“Our leadership is fully aware of Bol’s plan to loot the Nile Petroleum Corporation Ltd under the cover of reform. We think that it is our responsibility to enlighten you on the massive looting of public resources by the managing director of Nilepet,” it added.
The letter stated that Nilepet Petroleum Corporation Ltd is a national oil company that has a well defined human resource policies entrusted with the recruitment of staffs. The Human Resource Department in Nilepet was functional at the time of the previous Managing Directors.
The letter accused the Nilept director of employing his relatives and clansmen through his nephew.
“To elaborate on this point. Bol Ring brought in more than 30 relatives from the Village (Wunrock) and employed them in high grades probably from grade sixteen to eighteen. Many of his relatives whom he employed are unqualified. After giving them contracts, he assigned all of them in key and luxurious departments in Nilepet. The leadership of South Sudan Anti Corruption Forum compiled all the seventy names of Padhieu Clan members who were recruited into Nilepet by Bol Ring.
“In addition, Bol Ring has sidelined and relieved most of the competent and educated staffs who are against his corrupt policies. The clear example is the relieve of Cde. Ring Deng Ajing from the position of Petrol Station Manager. He (Ring Deng Ajing) is a master degree holder in art and diplomatic relations, from University of Juba. He is a man who doesn’t tolerate nonsenses and corruption.
The group also commended Ring Deng Ajing for standing firm against corruption.
