Lakes State Party Chairperson opposition mounts


November 1, 2012 (RUMBEK) - The chairperson of Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) in Yirol West County of Lakes state, Agok Manyiel Dhieu, has told the press that he opposes the appointment of Mabor Ater Dhoul by state party chairperson Daniel Awet Akot.

Dhieu called for Dhoul to resign immediately.

On Tuesday Akot held a meeting to resolve the widespread disquiet amongst the state government, caused by his appointment of Dhoul to the post previously held by Samuel Mathiang Keer. I resolution was not achieved. Rather, the Lakes state SPLM assistant secretary for political affairs, Malou Moses Majok, left the meeting saying he had been threatened by Akot.

Dhieu said he rejects Dhuol’s appointment because does he not fully understand the SPLM, as he was overseas during the Sudanese civil war.

The Sudan People’s Liberation Army were rebels which fought for South Sudan against Khartoum until the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Deal in 2005. The political wing of the former rebels now sits in power in Juba as the SPLM.

Dhieu also said Akot had failed to follow the correct procedure in appointing Dhuol’s appointment without consulting the State Liberation Council (SLC).

Dhieu said, “we told comrade Awet yesterday that we do not want this man to governance us – he said he is coming to transform the SPLM party. His mission that he stated is coming to dismiss the Governor and next he will go for stabilization of that state. We tell comrade Awet that we will not recognise the appointment.”

Dhieu explained that “in 2006, you tell us that you are coming for election, referendum and census – we supported you because of that idea – now in this year you are ringing alarm bells”.

He called on Awet to reverse Dhuol’s appointment and allow the decision to be made by the SLC.

In response to recent accusations that he had threatened a meeting to asses Dhuol’s appointment by blocking local roads and posting soldiers in the area, Awet said Dhuol will not assume his post until further notice.

Dhieu charged Dhuol with rejecting the appointment of ministers Pur Chieggan Dakbai and Machuor Marial Wol by governor Chol Tong Mayay in April.

“Mabor has rejected our SPLM ministers in the Assembly – how can he serve in a fair manner since his objected other SPLM members?” asked Dhuol.

    I would advise Agok Manyiel not to use a bad mouth as stated here in this article. The truth of the matter is that Awet Akot didn’t consults State Liberation Council in the appointment of Mabor Dhuol. But not that Mabor knows nothing about SPLM as a party due to that he was abroad during the war and that he refused former finance minister to be appointed.

    Micheal Agok was right,to remembered people about the libration struggled. However,the success of war had no blame!,or overlook the government of South Sudan.The SPLM leadership was possitively right,to fights after corruptions and promote civilisatgion prosperity in all ten provinces of South Sudan.

    I am sick of my people not understanding things. I have commented that Awet is a chairman of the party in the state n has powers to hire n fire anybody not doing the duty like Akol. Late Samuel Mathiang passed on. God blessed his soul, n somebody shld replace him. If Awet thinks z Malou isn’t fit, he can appoint anyone else n people shld wait 4 reorganisation of the party than this empty politics!

    Bravo Mr Agok
    All freedom fighters must wake up and face this devil,he must be silenced come what may.He exploited this land,killed,looted and raped daughters of Greater Bhar El Gazal Region with impunity during the war and now embark on appointing people who are not truly SPLM members to big positions in the party which was formed by blood shedding.

      Hi Mapuor,
      Did So called Eng. Moses Chol Tong Mayay contributed anything to the movement? i woundered. the man failed beyond reasonable doubt to the extend that he left the paper of what he is supposed to be called Engineer in Moscow,Russia. He was not alone in Russia, agree with me for that.He was just elected becos Of (SPLM)bribed Electoral College chaired by his Student Abraham Meen Kuc.

    You Guys must be careful because this is how George Athor was dragged to the bush. It was not intentional but due to wrong words being reported to the president by those who were power hungry. We don’t need that to happen in Lakes. Leave both Mabor and Malou and appoint someone else
