June 20, 2012 (JUBA) — South Sudan President, Salva Kiir on Monday
appealed to the Police force to join government’s recent move to crack
down on corrupt officials, but tasked them to do it in an honest and
transparent manner that reflects their obligation to society.

South Sudan President Salva Kiir Mayadrit (AP)Kirr made these remarks while speaking at a graduation ceremony of
over 120 customs officers at the Juba-based Buluk Police headquarters.
The ceremony also witnessed 13 officers, recently reinstated through a
presidential decree, take oath before the president.

"As members of the Police force, you have a major role to play in
maintaining law and order in the country. I urge you to not to abuse
your powers, but serve the nation in an honest manner that will
maintain your good image among the citizens of this country," Kiir
told the cops.

The President, who was occasionally cheered during the event, also
reminded members of South Sudan Police Service (SSPS) about his recent
decision to make corrupt officials, alleged to have misappropriated
public funds, accountable for their actions.

Last month, President Kiir wrote to 75 current and former government
officials asking them to account for about $4bn, believed to have been
stolen from the country. The money, he said, should be deposited in a
Kenya-based bank and that those who comply will be granted amnesty.

At least eight different governments in Africa, Europe, Asia and the
Middle East, have also been contacted to assist South Sudan government
in recovering some of these funds, allegedly deposited in foreign bank
accounts.

Meanwhile, the South Sudan leader credited the country’s Internal
Affairs ministry, under whose docket the Police falls, for what he
described as a remarkable transformation of the force and pledged more
government support to the law enforcement institution.

The President, on the other hand, lauded the role being played by the
United Nations Police especially in training members of South Sudan
Police force, further assuring them of continued support and
cooperation from government.

Alison Manani Magaya, South Sudan’s interior minister said, despite
the numerous hiccups facing the institution, the ministry has embarked
on the process of transforming the force, in line with its
recently-initiated transformation plan.

The plan, according to the minister, encompasses high quality training
among the forces, focusing on discipline, professional ethics and
honest practices. Also in the making, he hinted, is a Police academy
and as well as a college soon to be put in place.

Tito Acuil, the country’s Inspector General of Police (IGP), on his
part, urged the Police fraternity to show respect for citizens, while
at the same time appealing to the latter to always report cases
involving Police infringement on their rights to relevant authorities.

    SSAC was purposely erected to advance the means of stealing. SSAC was erected to cover up corrupt lords and to keep them in position of power. If the president does not name all the 73 corrupt workers within a month or less, then SSAC exists for no other reasons rather than to advance corruption. SSAC is an ENGINE of corruption itself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      The groups called the Lost Boys of Sudan (LBS) are the backbone of South Sudan and the leaders of today not tomorrow as you usually said. Believed it or not, whoever fight the war against Lost Boys is dead alive. He or she will be caught and send to ICC like Charles Tailor and indicted like Omar el Bashit. The death of Abraham Kuch will approved the last reports of raps and torturing.

    Even killing innocent person like Mayol Kuc is a corruption.
    Please, you should S. Sudanese leaders must be careful for most of you are against those might help you in development of our country. Messing up with American citizens would cause someone to the land of no return-the ICC because depriving someone live for no reason is equal to live imprisonment.

        I am tired with Kiir ways of leadership. Mr. President you need not to talk -to- talk but you need walk-to-walk. It is good that you now know that the police are the one doing havoc in S. Sudan. These police are largely from one ethnic group and they are there to sabotage your government. Please fire these bunch of police commissioners and replace them with real Top Corps. Walk up Mr. Presiden

    Empowering the police will enable them to investigate, lay charges and make arrests. The police should be powerful and independent enough to investigate any suspect big or small. South Sudan should learn from Israel, where the police has the power to investigate the prime minister himself and charge him if he breaks the law of the land, no one’s above the law. If they can do it, so we can.
