Minister and advisor who survive reshuffles

- Mr. Francis Ben Ataba, Minister of Education
- Mr. Ben Loky, Minister of Information and Communication
- Mr. Marcelo Dominic, Advisor on security affairs

In another development, the second beach of 47 Counties commissioners and 19 Executive Directors left for South Africa via Nairobi for four weeks training in local government administration and management and the team was led by Dobuol Lualweng Wuol GoSS director for Bilateral Relations.

Wuol said the second group includes representatives from Blue Nile, Nuba Mountains and Abyei. However, he regretted that there are only three women, one in the first group who are attending local government administration training and he blamed the process of nomination and election in each county that seem to have sidelined women.

He appeals to local government authorities to seriously consider women in the coming programme. The training programme is being organised by GoSS Ministry of Regional Corporation in collaboration with South African government.
