July 29, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– The SPLM Political Affairs and Mobilization office heartily congratulates President Salva Kiir Mayardit on his appointment of Taban Deng Gai as the First Vice President (FVP) of South Sudan.

This swift and decisive decision taken by President Kiir raises the confidence of our people and country. We applaud the SPLM/A-IO leadership for designating Taban Deng Gai to take on the position of FVP. Despite the recent shakeups within the SPLM/A-IO party, the commitment to continue advancing the guidelines in the peace agreement is commendable.

As the FVP, Taban Deng Gai is at the helm of the leadership alongside President Kiir and Vice President James Wani Igga. The SPLM Political Affairs and Mobilization office trusts that under the leadership of Taban Deng Gai, the period of conflict that has ravaged our young nation will come to an end.

We also believe the patriotic ideals and solid commitment of Taban Deng Gai will bring a positive change to South Sudan. At this critical juncture in our history, time is of the essence. Political waggling cannot resolve crucial issues and bring an end to our suffering.

The people of South Sudan need respite. This relief can be brought forth by peaceful coexistence among communities, internal security, economic growth and education reforms, just to name a few. In order for peace to prevail in South Sudan, we need to unite.

This requires us to set the interest of our country ahead of our own personal needs and ambitions. The sovereignty of South Sudan should be at the forefront of all we do. We also should maintain a keen eye on external forces who aim to disperse and bring disarray to our beloved land. Neighboring countries should support the full implementation of the peace agreement that South Sudanese seek which is related to peace, development, healing and reconciliation.

The wave of change taking effect within the political system and country cannot be ignored. Strides towards positive change are taking root, as the life of each child, woman, man and elder is valued.

How many time have Kiir decisions or decree been calmly resisted & reversed by Machar. I loss counts after hearing the 28 states. That too is being resisted and eventually will meet its day of reversal.
