April 16, 2013 (JUBA) - South Sudan has attempted to clarify the powers president Salva Kiir has removed from his vice president, Riek Machar, following the shock announcement on state-owned South Sudan Television (SSTV) on Monday.

The surprise move has created tension and uncertainty at the centre of the south-ruling party (SPLM) government, which officials tried to dispel today after a stunned reaction among the South Sudanese public.

Under article 105 of the Transitional Constitution of South Sudan, the vice president can act as the president in the event that the head of state is out of the country or when out of office. The president can also delegate some powers to his deputy so as to help in executing national duties, due to scheduling issues.

Sources aware of the authority president Kiir had delegated of Machar, claims such powers include representation of the president at high-level international and national meetings.

The speaker of South Sudan’s National Legislative Assembly, James Wani Igga, said on Tuesday that the president "did not touch" the constitutional powers assigned to the vice president and did not dismiss him. The head of state had only withdrawn powers he had previously delegated to his deputy to help perform other important tasks he could not attend, the senior SPLM official said.

“I read the read decree and looked at the transitional constitution and found that the president did not touch any constitutional powers assigned to the vice president. He [Kiir] had only withdrawn powers he had in the past delegated to his deputy. So let our people understand that the vice president is a still a vice president with all his constitutional powers”, Igga told reporters.

Igga called for South Sudanese to be calm and read the decree to fully understand the meaning of the announcement.

James Kok Ruea, a former minister of humanitarian affairs and disaster management, currently a member of parliament representing Fangak county in Jonglei state also said that Machar had not been stripped of any powers not vested in him by the country’s transitional constitution.

Ruea said the decree had been misunderstood, generating confusion and spreading of rumours alleging that the Vice president has been removed from his position by the order of the president.

“There is confusion. People were confused when they heard it. Some people called yesterday to ask whether I have heard [about the] removal of the vice president. These were literate people. They are educated. They reads and write but because they were misinformed they thought all powers of the vice president were removed”, Ruea said.

South Sudan Minister of information, Barnaba Marial Benjamin, at press conference organised specifically to make clarifications on the order, called for calm and cautious remarks, saying constitutional powers of the vice president have not been removed.

“Riek Machar is still a vice president with all constitutional powers. General Salva Kiir Mayardit is a still a president with all his constitutional powers. They are all in office. What the president had done is that he had withdrawn powers he had previously delegated to the vice president. It is like you asking me to do some work for you when you are preoccupied. This is exactly what happened and it should be understood in this context”, Marial said Tuesday.

He denied that there were any political differences between the president and his deputy over the organisation and conduct of a peace and reconciliation conference scheduled for June, having only recently been postponed from April.

Machar had been due to head the conference but was removed from this position by Kiir on Monday. Government sources have told Sudan Tribune that the postponement was due to political differences over the agenda and the timing of the process.

However Marial, the governments official spokesperson did not give any reason for the decision as to why Kiir had abruptly suspended the process and Machar’s role in it.

“There is no difference that I know between the vice president and the president. The two leaders have been closely working together on all issues of national value”, Marial explained.

Kiir’s actions may be linked to Machar’s reported intention to run for the chairmanship of the ruling SPLM at the upcoming national convention.

Machar has served as Kiir’s deputy since 2005 when the SPLM’s leader, the late John Garang died in a helicopter crash shorty after negotiating the end of two decade of civil war with the Khartoum government.

    The government including Kiir himself do not know which powers are withdrawn. They can’t name them. They caused confusion to the public for nothing. Dr. Machar is doing his job as usual. I watched him on TV yesterday and nothing has changed. Kiir just wanted to issue a meaningless decree since he is addicted to doing so.

      Peace and reconciliation initiated by Dr Raik Machar is another way of shieling himself from the crime he committed in Bor 1991. Believe it or not, soon he will be extradited to ICC to face the music for his horrific crime.
      Now you too, will face music in juba when war between Dinka and Nuer errupt, you were better off under khartoum rule.

        Kus,
        The ICC cannot try anyone for any crime committe before 2003- when the court was set up so there is not way that Dr Machar can be tried at the ICC for something that happened in 1991

        Machar did commit massacre in Bor alone. It was the cowardice of people in Bor that led to the mass-slaughter. But that’s not what we’re discussing now in this forum. The issue is about the meaningless repulican order that’s leading to much confusing here in Juba. Let’s not talk about any killing again in our country. We all need peace.

            It was because of cowardice of Bor Community that led to mass-slaughter, I must repeat it becoz it’s something that have a ground. Do mean that all youngmen from Bor went to fight Jalaba went Riak murdered innocent women, kids, elderly and other eble-bodied persons? I was not a boy, I know your cowardice. When Nyigat came, armed youngmen fled togather with women.

            Can you people stop any thing tribal and just concentrate on the substance? Killing of any members of community whether by default or intention cannot be glorified. The killing of Bor people by whoever is not something to be entertained. Many things happened under different leaders and let us move forward and forgive any past mistakes.

This issue of inter-tribal and intra-tribal fierce conflict in the world is something that need a collective work from involved individuals and groups inorder to stop it.

      Yes, we are confused as to which powers are withdrawn. The President should be explicit about the powers because an average S. Sudanese does not read the constitution to understand "delegated Powers."
      Obviously, such powers are voluntarily given by the President and they do not need a degree to be withdrawn as the President did not issue a degree to delegate them in the first place.

    Listen to me ..
    History will repeat itself again, I told you many time and time the root cause for collapsing Addis Ababa agreement is still there in the south, it was never Arab/Jalaba in the north but the south-south conflict itself and it shows its head again and might be much ugliest than ever before this time!!

      You know what is the difference between the current situation in South Sudan when we compare it right after Addis Ababa agreement? not really a big difference except the south has a flag in UN premise in New York and called itself a country while back after 1972 Addis Ababa agreement the south had full autonomy and ruled themselves by themselves and had true election

        while the north didn’t have true election during Nimary time!!
        Southerners failed to rule themselves by themselves due to tribalism that overwhelmed political and social life in the south, the conflict between Dinka from one side and minority tribes such as Equatorians and other tribes from the other side over who should rule and dominate the south led to Addis Ababa

          Well,north interfered before to support Equatorians against Dinka when Dinka rejected the fair election that gave the mandate to Equatorians to divide the south into 3 regions and Joseph Tumbora (Azande)

                          According to Data Mining prediction technology,the current south-south conflict will completely give the opposite result of the previous conflict result!
