June 2, 2012 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir has written to over 75 former and current government officials directly asking them to account for misappropriated funds.

Kiir in a statement released on Friday 1 June, said his letter to these officials was part of anti-corruption measures taken by the Juba government to end corruption and strengthen transparency and accountability in the newly independent country.

Over $1 billion, according to the recent country’s Auditor General’s report,
remained unaccounted for between 2005-06, in transfers of oil revenues
from the Government of National Unity - the power and wealth sharing
partnership in Khartoum created by 2005 peace deal - to the autonomous
Government of South Sudan (GoSS) in Juba.

"A letter was sent out last week to over seventy five former and current senior officials in an effort to recover stolen funds," reads a statement released by the Office of the President.

Most of the stolen funds, according to President, have been taken out of the country and deposited into foreign bank accounts, adding that some of these funds have been used for purchasing properties, often “paid in cash”.

The statement disclosed that Kiir has asked in a written letter sent to eight heads of states seeking their assistance in recovering about $4 billion, which are still unaccounted for, or were simply “stolen,” by unnamed officials well as individuals with close ties to government officials.

These states where the stolen money is supposed to have be transferred to are in Africa, United States, Middle East and Europe, the statement says.

In his letter to the concerned officials, Kiir said: "The people of South Sudan and the international community are alarmed by the level of corruption in South Sudan."

He emphasised that "corruption has no place in my government". He also denounced their selfishness while the South Sudanese are suffering from poverty and lack of basic services and infrastructure.

"The credibility of our government is on the line," the letter of 3 May stresses.

Last week, the Anti-Corruption Commission announced the recovery of $60 million stolen by different officials .

South Sudan has experienced difficult economic conditions since January due to the shut down of oil production as part of a dispute with Khartoum and is in dire need of money. Juba managed to borrow money from some countries but no solution to the oil dispute is on the horizon. Oil revenues accounted for 98% of South Sudan’s income before the shutdown.

“I am writing to encourage you to return these stolen funds (partial or full),” Kiir said, adding that, “If fund are returned, the Government of the Republic of South Sudan will grant amnesty and will keep your name confidential. I and only one other official will have access to this information.”

President Kiir also assured the public of his government’s commitment to probe those involved in corruption-related practices and the desire to hold them accountable through “critical decisions”. The stolen funds, he said, have deprived the country’s citizens of the much-needed heath care, education and other basic services.

Kiir often talks tough on corruption but critics say that he has, so far, not backed this up with action, citing the example that he has not granted the South Sudan Anti-Corruption Commission (SSACC) the power to prosecute officials suspected of corruption. No Southern Sudanese official has been prosecuted for corruption since South Sudan gained self-rule as part of the 2005 peace deal that led to secession last year.

The SSACC is reportedly reviewing 1,600 forms submitted by government officials in response to the declaration of assets call.

Last week, The US Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor accused South Sudan, in its annual report, of failing to "effectively implement the law, and officials continued to "engage in corrupt practices with impunity."

The report noted that despite public criticism of corruption by President Kiir, "it was a problem in all branches of government and was compounded by poor record keeping, lax accounting procedures, and the pending status of corrective legislation within the country".

The statement of the South Sudanese presidency outlined a number of measures
reportedly undertaken by his government in the past six months to combat corruption as well as strengthen transparency and accountability in the world’s newest nation. These include;

  • Appointing a new Chairperson of Anti-Corruption Commission
  • A letter was sent out to over twenty five (25) current and former
  • senior government officials in an effort to recover stolen funds
  • Several presidential decrees were issues to strengthen transparency and tackle corruption
  • An estimated 500 Declaration of Assets forms were returned by both former and current officials
  • The Anti-Corruption Commission handed its final report on the Declaration of Assets to President Salva Kiir late May 2012
  • The Government of the Republic of South Sudan has opened a bank account in Kenya so that stolen funds can be returned to this account
  • The Anti-Corruption Commission has recovered an estimated $60m from various sources from fraudulent transactions and misappropriation of funds by government institutions
  • In January 2012, President Salva Kiir Mayardit sent eight letters to heads of states in Africa, the US, the Middle East and Europe seeking assistance in the recovery of funds stolen by former and current South Sudan officials
  • Multiple investigations have been underway since January 2012 in an effort to recover stolen funds.

            Sudanese and South Sudanese have just common problems. Corruption is one the worst things they share. I am not at all happy about these South Sudanese guys in echelon of power looting the country. But at the same time I bemoan how one man Beshir could just be allowed to carry away a whole 9 billion USD alone. Then count Tahas, Nafies, Mustafas, Goshs etc. you can even cry!

    IT IS TIME FOR REFORMATION
    The enabling word today to the nations of the earth and most especially South Sudan and her sons is the message of reformation. The word Reformation in Greek is the word Diorthosis. It means to make a structure adjustment, to make straight again that which has become misaligned by putting it back to correct order or form. It also means rectification.

        Nguetbuny de Luelpiny, you’re making good research, this what South Sudanese expected from their leaders after CPA, there was important say by Dr. John Garang after CPA was signed he say’ CPA does not meant total peace, it like two lambs fighting, sometime they took moment to retreat back and than resume to fight each others, this moment, one lamb will be terribly beaten. this was metaphor to

          The leaders who remain on the charge of South Sudan affairs at moment might have not understood, if they could have knew what’s mean then there were no reasons we shouldn’t acquire these sophisticated weapons, like for example, corrupted official has accumulated as much as $38 millions in foreign banks, so if Sukhoi-27 jet-fighter is $ 15 millions then the amount of $38 m can buy two of this Jet

    I already know, MOST WANTED of those officials busted of embezzled public’s money belong to.....community known for [defection, cattlerustling, looting civilian etc.] Because this is the only community in SOUTH SUDAN where each leader fight for his/her own interest than for public. And if argue, each could quickly defect to arabs where he/she can be used by BASHIT against us. See MR SALVA is telling them AMNESTY like they always deserve it !

    Why was the money taken in the first place? Was the law sleeping? It is really unfortunate that the public is in the hands of careless, unpatriotic rulers! All the time we heard Morhum Dut in the radio of liberation, we believed the sons of the land have come to rescue the People! Alas not the case.

      I believe that Dr. John has laid the foundation by words, so if we want to know what he said some years ago, you’ ll find that he said everything what left was just to connect the dots. New Sudan ideology, take town to people instead people to town, etc. and said something important about building legacy or reputation, what he said about Dr. Riek will be known in history as he stab the Movement

        at the back, so matter what Dr. Riek try to improve himself he is no longer at there, still it will be difficult to remove from the minds of many people of South Sudan. The same way if President Kirr wants to left another legacy to People of South Sudan it will be up to him, because after 3years at least it’ll be difficult to remove from head of every South Sudanese that his Government was corrupt

    Presiden Kiir,
    You have no option except to areign these thieves in court of law. Opening an account in Kenya is not the solution S. Sudanese yearn for. Responsible citizen does not collaborate nor sympathize with thieves, otherwise the old agade applies that "Birds of the same feather fly together". If you don’t make public names of these thieves it may be understood that there is likelihood

    that the name SALVA KIIR MAYARDIT appears among the 75 names of grand thieves of the new republic. There is no difference between african pet animal and these thieves who steal their own people hey claim to have fougt for. Shameful. TAKE THEM TO COURT IF YOU ARE INNOCENTLY RESPONSIBLE. South Sudanses are tired of organized banditry, legalized theft and regular robbery since 2005.

    We wish Garang to be alive and answer our questions on corruption and development. Which kind of people are these on this planet, earth? Poor or completely lack of planning and humane feeling.
    God is so meerciful that He allows thieves to punish his people on this earth.

    GO, CAN YOU KINDLY TAKE SEVERE ACTION AGAINST THESE THIEVES IN SOUTH SUDAN?

    God graciously hear us.
