Minister of information, Barnaba Marial Benjamin, said a committee is being established to attend March’s donor conference, which is being organised by the United States government.

“A plan is being developed to see that those ministries which have areas where the investors would invest can go”, Benjamin told reporters on Tuesday.

The minister of agriculture Betty Achan Ogwaro, minister of trade, commerce and investment Garang Diing Akuong, and minister of petroleum and mining Stephen Dhieu Dau, will all be part of the team.

The US ambassador to South Sudan, Susan Page, has held meetings with senior government officials during which she has appeared on state television talking discussing the upcoming conference.

"I came to the minister of cabinet affairs honorable Deng Alor Kuol to discuss bilateral issues with him and to brief him about the forthcoming donor conference in March in Washington. We also talked about [South Sudan’s expected] cabinet reshuffle”, Page said in a statement broad by South Sudan Television last week.

      Abassador Page,
      What a cabinet reshuffle has to do with you? Why you talk to Deng Alor about a cabinet reshuffle as if South Sudan is under your rule? Anyway, no hard feeling just curious.

        If there is going to be a help from American and other donor countries, this will be not with out a cost in term of downsizing a government,good review of constitution,an independent election commission and freedom for every political party. with all this reshuffling the government will happen any time from now.

      The President himself or Vice President should lead this high level delegation to the conference to mobilize the donor support and guide the presentations by the various ministers. Allowing the ministers to go alone without guiding authority will likely make them enjoy the hotels and not concentrate on the importance of the conference. We are in serious situation and our seriousness must be seen.

        Exactly Midiit, Dr Riak, Dr Majak, Stephen Dhieu Dau and Farouk Garkuoth plus Dr Dhieu Mathok should be the right pple to be send there to go and convince the donors, not those of Ogwari of Agriculture or Garang Diing of commerce. We better send those who will go to use the language of logic, not those who will just go and remain silent.

          I don’t think Stephen Dhieu can make any audible presentation! The guy has english difficulty and on top of that, I don’t think ministers who hold areas of special investment should go. This is a donor conference and not investment conference. Sending incapable people will let us down. Pagan, Nhial, Dr Majak, Dhieu Mathok or Garkuoth will bring home something!

            Your idea is right and must be observes by our Government. VP Riek, Dep.SPLA, Majak, Deng Alor,Ann Itto,Pagan, Dhieu mathok, Nhial, Gatkuoth plus two Youth must attend, they should not be too many to over crowd the Conference. We need people with brain.Agric, Invest, petro can not go because they tours alot and yet yield nothing seen for the country. Goos AMb Susan Rice, We love you

      Those of Jalaby were dreaming that our country will collapse and now they are scared by this move of the US. Let me tell you this Jalaby, it is said that if you are very poor and still have many friends, then you are a wealthy person. But if you are rich and you have mo friends, then you are poor. We have many friends which makes it difficult to collapse.

        Be realistic and honest with yourself, I’ve no single doubt that you know very well the south will collapse no doubt if visionless Mr. Kiir and the bunch of thieves around him continue to lead the south, despite the huge resources the south has but they moved it quickly to a piece of crap!!

Kiir might be the first president worldwide to tell his corrupt ministers to return money. This is even an indication that we don,t want corruption. Have you ever accepted being corrupt in sudan?

It is a world problem and any step forward to eradicate it is a credit. What was done by miyardit is now a credit to this country.

I have the right to criticize mr Kiir when he did wrong and have to recognize anything good he has done. This indicates that iam not a blind supporter or wisher of bad things to the country.

    " A donor conference" A few coming to beg for the nation is just ludicrous and another creation of middle men. They have been working parallel well with S-Sudan govt and that was how Juba- nimule road has been built. So what all this stupidity? If they have to achieve something then they have to continue the status quo and side step Marial Benjamin and Kiir system which could cause another loss.

      I agree with anyone that,our president have to select this time capable ministers for this donnors conference for fruitful results, we dont want disapportments. Hence, among those I think can presents well include Dr Barnaba Marial, Paul Acheck, John Luk, Pagan,Gabriel Chanson,Tilar Ring and the so on.

      I hope this news is true because, as per our discussion of donor conference in Washington, its better the government learn from mistake of Oslo conference and try to correct them in up coming conference, this is on one hand, and another hand, the US government has to organize it in a way that donors can not set cash to the government of South Sudan in order to avoid corruption

        it will be better if the pledges be offered in areas of developments such as schools and Agriculture, health and etc, and this is the area the Government should concentrate better on by organizing and developing paper according to needs and priorities rather than sending huge team to the US without clear and workable purpose

    I hope it won’t be like Oslo donor conference for the reconstruction of South Sudan where donors pledged 3.4 billions dollars but nothing materialized.
