March 6, 2021(Nyamilepedia) — Your Excellency, you are a leader, who fought for this country to get its independence and you are still committed up to now to see its development and stability and that is why you signed the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan.

Your Excellency, South Sudan Anti Corruption is an organization that oversees the development of this country and its main aim is to advocate for development and accountability of public activities be it money, infrastructure or justice.

Your Excellency, SSACF is calling upon you as our beloved President to rescue your citizens from the hand of this corrupt Minister, is only you who will help your citizens, how can he continue sleeping in the hotel to enjoy while citizens are dying without salaries and no medical assistance for those who are sick.

Hon. Athian Diing Athian, the Minister of Finance and Planning anti-economic growth policy banning payment of hard currency to all government contracted suppliers despite absolute importation of these goods and services are transacted in hard currency.

Where and which country on earth acquire  import all of  commodities from broad paying in foreign currency  and expect to be  paid in local currency within economic parameters of hyperinflation? 

The Minister of Finance and planning knows nothing about economic reforms, demand and supply  and transformation he alleges to be spearheading.

He proposed the most dangerous policy ever enacted to outlaw payment in hard currency to  all government’s  contractors which usually  supply vehicles,  various food commodities, pharmaceutical entities and both hardwares and softwares.

I am informing the  government of South Sudan to give directives to honorable minister of finance and planning to quickly reverse his orders as soon as possible because he, the minister of finance and planning, has proven himself to South Sudanese that he lacks knowledge to run the ministry in sounding manner  because of that policy.

The economy of South Sudan is dependently operating on imported goods for consumption at 90%  and local production of goods and services  at 10%. Local production even survives on imported raw materials which are not locally produced in the country.

A good example was an issue of electricity company which proposed shutting down of electricity in Juba city but was at last rescued by the government.

The knowledge of this minister of finance and planning knowledge has expired 10 years ago and his own actions have proven that beyond reasonable doubts.

The fundamental reasons that prompted my call to rescue vital businesses from invisible hand of the minister of finance and planning are:

  1. Protection of local contractors of government  from collapse due to frozen payment of their claim in the ministry of finance and planning in pretext of forcing them to accept devalued local currency.
  2. Rescue chain of supply of goods and services to the country which is now stopped since appointment of Hon. Athian Diing Athian.
  3. Protect vital and infant industries from collapsing due to suffocation policy imposed on business by Hon. Minister of finance and planning. 

 Here are more destructive policies:

1- Accommodation of Former Governor of Defunct Gogrial State Victor Atem Atem Angok.

2- Soldiers haven’t receive their salaries since his appointment into the ministry of finance and planning.

3- Athian Diing Atheism has recently bought 6 V-8 for his friends the likes of Victor Atem Atem and his office manager Paul Ngong.

  1. Athian is in office but the office is run by Paul Ngong who is just there to convince people so that they continue looting with hi boss.
  2. In the office and since their reception in that office they could not approve or disapprove any documents being medical, contracts and the likes.

In a country where ministers sleep in the hotels like visitors, we cannot allow Athian to continue using our money to enjoy himself in the hotel. He sleeps with any girl he likes at the expense of our civil servants who go unpaid since he assumed this ministry and that is evil.

The South Sudan Anti Corruption Forum requests our president Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit to intervene and remove him to rescue citizens from this looter, Athian Diing Athian.
