Speaking in an interview with Sudan Tribune, shortly after the vote to approve the new cabinet, member of parliament, Mayar Deng Mayar, said 45 members, including the speaker, were present during deliberations.

Of the 44 members who voted, 37 were in favour and 7 against. Mayar said 13 of the new cabinet members appointed by South Sudan’s first female governor, Nyandeng Malek Deliech, have no previous ministerial experience.

Officials from the state government described the appointment of three female cabinet members as working towards achieving a stipulation of the South Sudan Transitional Constitution; 25 percent representation for women at state and national levels of government.

“This cabinet is inclusive. It represents all the counties of Warrap State,” Mayar told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday from Kuajok, the state capital. He said their priority will be security and the delivery of basic services.

He said that the new cabinet would support the Governor to improve the security situation in the state, upon which development is contingent.

Joseph Akol Wek, a former youth chairperson who works at the state parliament congratulated the governor for appointing her new cabinet and expressed happiness in the appointment of the new minister of health, whom he described as a “capable and right person in the right place”.

“This is a fair cabinet. Some communities which were not happy are now celebrating. There are no negative reactions which I have seen, although this cabinet has taken a long time to be announced,” said Akol.

Akol said new appointees include Acuil Akoc Mager as minister of finance, replacing Majok Bol Kur who the house voted to remove, accusing him of financial irregularities in the 2010 budget. However, he survived the vote with the backing of the governor and speaker to replace Kuot Mawien Kuot as minister of agriculture.

Solomon Angui Mayuot is now minister of health; Andrea Aguer Ariik, minister of education; Madhel Malek, minister of public service; Nyanaguek Kuol Mareng and Lual Madhang, ministers of information and youth; Victoria Tito, minister of social development; former Gogrial East county commissioner Paul Gum Madul, minister of animal resources; Atem Atem, minister for local government; Achol Chier Rehan retained her post as minister of parliamentary affairs.

Rehan commands popular support and is one of the longest serving female politicians in the state.

She has held a number of administrative positions, including her first job as field supervisor working for the South Sudan Relief and Rehabilitation Association (SSRRA) during the Sudanese civil war which ended in 2005 and led to South Sudan’s secession in 2011.

    The Warrap State is the last of all ten States in everything, poor leadership, none refocus agendas development, lacking social skills, the governor herself too rude to lead State and she is very self-fish woman who dislike other human being and only favorable Gogrial and I think she is a one term failure governor.Tonj North,Tonj East and Tonj North west Kuac Thiin are not going to vote for her

          Madina Tonj,

          The former governors are all failure especially Bol Madut & Anei Kueidit are worst than current governor Nyandeng. Warrap State will be like Gogrial if young people cannot step up and change the direction before it’s too late.

            I know those people you mention did not complete two years in the office, because the president was changing them within a year, why because he was listening to advices of Gogrialan Idocy.You can defend stupid Nydeng Malek and that is the culture of Gogrial we all know, but God knows when and who will lead South Sudan and we will see drunk Gogrial will go back to beers drinking

          God’s children always win through Join-operation and prayers as Jesus himself said “ For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."

            I don’t support nonsense talk rather i like he/she who will go to the point, to give you one simple example, when Anei Kuendit came he took state from Wau to current place Kuajok and when insecurity became a problem when people were unable to sleep in Gogrial Bol Madut whom you claims to failed governor stop it within short period But b/c we love food he was removed so that we eat.

              To tell me where Bol Madut and Anei Kuendit build their big houses compare to other guys whom you claims to be good leaders
              I am warning you on such talk otherwise you guys may think we are sleeping and not exactly if you don’t stop we will start from the top so that you we are also people. I can’t appreciate some thing b/c i alone was given a food to eat leaving my brothers ok!
