May 31, 2021 — The South Sudan Opposition Alliance(SSOA), the second largest opposition group in the country, is appealing to president Salva Kiir to remove the governor of Jonglei State, Hon. Denay Chagor, citing cases of nepotism, corruption, lack of cultural orientation, lack of self-acquaintance with the diversity and failure of leadership in Jonglei State.

In their press release, SSOA held onto South Sudan constitution and the Revitalized Peace Agreement as the basis for their decision.

“Article 24 (1) and 25 (1) of the Transitional Constitutional of the Republic of South Sudan, amended 2011 states that Every citizen shall the right to the freedom of expression, reception and dissemination of information, publication, and access to the press without prejudice to public order, safety or morals as prescribed by lawand; The right to peaceful assembly is recognized and guaranteed; every person shall have the right to freedom of association with others, including the right to form or join political parties, associations and trade or . professional unions for the protection of his or her interestsrespectively.” The parties stated in their press released.

“Your excellency, based on the abovementioned constitutional rights, we therefore the undersigned members of South Sudan Opposition Alliance (SSOA) represented by the affiliated various political parties, do hereby reaffirmed our support and commitment to the implementation of the Revitalized Peace Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (RARCSS). ” The further continued.

According to SSOA leadership council, the opposition group is resorting to this decision to restore the image of their party and that of the people of Jonglei State.

“Your Excellency, for the sake of the good image of SSOA, the reasons leading to our resolution for the replacement of the Governor and to conclude make this appeal on behalf of the people of Jonglei are as hereby mentioned below.” They said.

In their press statement, SSOA leadership council cited deficits that range from lack of leadership qualities, leadership failure, corruption, nepotism and many other major concerns:

“1) Based on the R-ARCSS, we realized that the Governor has no vision, mission, objectives, plans and programs for Jonglei state;

‘2) There is a grave gravitating and evidently clear leadership failure under the current  Governor since he has never convened a council of ministersmeeting in Jonglei;

“3) The governor lacks cultural orientation and has lost touch with all the stakeholders in the state i.e., elders, women, and youth who are the backbone of the state and SSOA members including his Party; 

“4) Contrary to the basic principles of practice in terms of diversity and inclusivity, the  Governor has appointed his relatives into the government against the general will of the people including his party;

“5) There is a gross misuse of public resources; justified by the continued hiring of Crown  Hotel in Juba, Airport road as an Office of the Governor with his support staff and bodyguards as residents

“6) Since the governor is micromanaging and personalized state affairs with his nephew  Minister of Finance, the entire cabinet and the government of the state has lost confidence and trust in working with the Governor

“7) The Governor of Jonglei State has personalized the financial resources of the state and  this is evidenced by the opening of both hard and local currency accounts at ECO Bank, South Sudan Limited in Juba;

“8) No matter what, the Governor does not listen to any bodys advice concerning matters  of the state.” Th stated.

The opposition alliance is calling on president Salva Kiir to consider their appeal so that they can nominate a better governor for Jonglei State.

“Your Excellency, according to SSOA internal memo on responsibility sharing, the position of the governor was initially given to SSUM and as such, we would like a fair process for the nomination of a new Governor to be given a priority under the support of SSOA Greater Upper Nile Political Caucus and overly supervised by the leadership and Chairperson of SSOA.”

Denay came to power through SSUM, a party that was formed by late Gen. Peter Gatdet Yaka who happened to have married Denay’s elder sister.

Since his returned from the US, Denay joined General Peter in Khartoum and ascended to the third highest position in SSUM/A as the Secretary General of the party.

Denay eventually became the face of SSUM as it represented SSUM on its political grounds.

When Gen. Gatdet passed on in Khartoum, Denay promptly became the flag bearer of SSUM and was appointed the Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology, a position he held for a few months before Jonglei State was turned by the SPLM/A-IO and handed over to SSOA.

Since SSOA had no significant presence in Jonglei State, Denay became the most senior member of the party from Jonglei State and that make him the most favorable candidate for governorship.

Denay had to vacate his ministerial position for other parties, which was later picked up by Hon. Changson Lew Chang of PDF, for him to become the governor of Jonglei State.

For the last few months, Denay has had political clashes with his deputy over the appointment of the mayor of Bor municipality and that seems to be cracking waves across multiple political divides.

“SSOA Appeals to President Kiir to remove Governor Denay citing corruption, nepotism and leadership vacuum”

The low life didn’t have a chance here in Jonglei state or Upper Nile. Their lawlessness and their believe in magicians, their Ngundeng Buong fantasies and foreign free things have put the low lives at odd or collision course with the owners, the Muonyjiengs/Jaangs/Dinkas/Jenges.

The low lives were given their dirty states to go and run them to see, if at all they have any brains in child-like-skulls. And that was why the *32 states were created after their foreign puppet/stooge, a traitor, a secret society piece of trash and a thief let his foolish carried him and called 21 states.

Mr. Salva Kiir called for 32 states, and the low life and bunch secret societies evils, the US, the UK and when the low lives wqent and found out the resources they are desperately after are not in the Nuers, Shilluks (Chollos or Equatorians after all, but are in the Muonyjiengs/Jaangs/Dinkas/Jenge countries or villages. And so the low lives and their foreign backers reverted to *blackmails, extortions and to use these low lives as their bargaining chips or cards over South Sudan and the South Sudanese people

And their evil end-game is put pressure, put pressure, pressure, put pressure on South Sudan and the South Sudanese people, and then, the vermins or parasite so-called *AFRICA UNITY and REGIONAL INTEGRATION

Being propagated by bunch of *secret societies and foreign criminals’ of former South African piece of trash, Mr. Thabo Mbeki, current president of Rwanda, Mr. Paul Kagame, former president of Tanzania, Mr. Jakaya Kikwete, current president of Kenya, Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta, his rival Rail Odinga, a mole who even brags that he is the CIA operative, here in Africa, former Abesh (so-called ethiopian) prostitute piece of trash, Mr. Hailemariam Desalegn, His successor, Mr. Abiy Ahmed, former US president, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama, Susan Rice, Susan Paige, former UNSC slitty-eyed piece of trash, Mr. Ban Ki Moon, former Nigerian president, Mr. Olusegun Obasanjo, current evil juus (so-called israeli) attack dogs terrorists, Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu and his bunch evil evil juus (so-called israelis) who attached themselves to our country and over our people.

Lowly informed South Sudanese fools. WW3 is going to start here in South Sudan and I am one of the boys who WILL again going to *BLITZ THESE VERMINS/PARASITES out of ‘Kiirtowm/El Khartoum’, Eastern Jerusalem and give Eastern Jerusalem to Palestinians, Islam is not a religion, never been a religion and will be a religion. Abesh (so-called ethiopia), with Djibouti, French legions out of Central Africa Rebublic (C.A.R), Chad, Djibouti back to Yemen and Saudi Arabia with the land they vermins are currently living on, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM.

The vermins and parasites have have step on the wrong feet, the Muonyjiengs/Jaangs/Dinkas/Jenges of the Sudan. There is no damn oil left in Saudi Arabia, the parasites/vermins even think, that they can drill oil here in Upper Nile and then it will go and be refined in Saudi Arabia.

That was an evil Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu and his zaniest Eastern European criminals came and collected their Darfuris criminals and let them go and dance in our El Khartoum. And called their piece nonsense Abraham accord what damned Mahabharata do the evil have?

Went and allegedly sent nonsense in gulf Arab states of U.A.E and to go the mars. We will find out there existence of that ‘ROCKET’. Prior that nonsense the evils went to Florida US and allegedly sent their own evil juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs and counted 1, 2,3 and lift off going to the moon, and named it in their Yiddish language and called it to be Hebrew

Their rubbish went and failed spectacularly.

Fellows, Tel Aviv international airport, Jomo Kenyatta international airport, Bole International airport, will be *parking lots, King Farhad international airport, Mecca and Medina

We are desperate for a war with vermins/parasites, pure HATRED and RACISM lurks lowly informed fools.
