July 31, 2013 (JUBA) - South Sudanese from different walks of life took to the streets on Wednesday evening to celebrate the appointment of Jonglei governor Kuol Manyang Juuk; a former rebel commander.

Juuk’s main task will be to restructure South Sudan’s army - the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) - which fought Khartoum governments until a 2005 peace deal, gave the South the right to seceded in 2011.

The announcement of the new cabinet has been met with both relieve and wariness by South Sudanese, who are used to seeing the same cast of politicians appointed to key posts.

Persistent corruption allegations against senior figures have led to a loss of trust in many senior SPLM politicians and the new cabinet includes several politicians accused of corruption in past administrations.

Formed after a week since president Salva Kiir fired his long term deputy, Riek Machar and sacked all his 58 ministers and deputy minsters, the new cabinet has been hastily assembled.

The newly restructured government will have 31 cabinet members, including the president, his deputy and the minister in his office who has not yet been named, according to the order read on state radio.

Some of the old faces who have not been included in the new cabinet include General John Kong Nyuon, General Alfred Lado Gore, Cirino Hiteng, Peter Adwok Nyaba, Gier Chuang Aluong, Deng Alor Kuol, Kosti Manibe Ngai, John Luk Jok, Nhial Deng Nhial, Lual Acuil, Majak D’ Agoot, Madut Biar Yel, General Oyai Deng, General Salva Mathok Gengdit amongst others.

Those who have been reappointed, from the SPLM and other political parties, include Barnaba Marial Benjamin, Michael Makuei Lueth, Jemma Nunu Kumba, Awut Deng Acuil, Martin Elia Lomoro (SSDF), Stephen Dhieu Dau.

The new faces include Abdallah Deng Nhial, Ngor Kolong Ngor, Aleu Ayeny Aleu, Telar Ring Deng, Beda Machar, Agrey T,Sabuni, John Gai, Riek Gai Kok, Kuol Manyang Juuk, amongst others.

Juuk said he was happy to accept the appointment and acknowledged it was going to be a challenge. He however expressed certainty that he would be able to perform well in the new position.

"People have been talking a lot and even reached to extent that they were saying president does not listen to advice of the people. This is now the response. He was studying all these calls and now he has responded as the president. It is a challenging task but I think I will manage it if I get support of our people to work together with the president", Juuk told Sudan Tribune Wednesday.

Juuk, a senior member of the ruling SPLM said he was "happy because this is the wish of our people to serve them in the defence”, he said explaining people knows better where leaders serve better than what the leaders think for themselves.

Adut Ayuen, a soldier in the SPLA, said he was hoping Juuk will address the issues facing the rebel-group-turned-national army.

"There has been a very big problem in the ministry of defence. Some soldiers go for months without payment. No salaries, no food and no explanation. Names go missing on the payroll while on active duty. This has been going on for years and I hope the Kuol Manyang I know back in the bush, unless something has suddenly changed him like other colleagues we used to think would work for the interest of the army, will try to improve our situation. We need the confidence and moral to be restored in the army", Ayuen said.

"There is a big problem in the army. The chain of command must be established and maintained. If this does not take place, then I fear Kuol [Manyang] would still fall into the pit of his predecessors", he said without elaborating.

The soldier said he foresees difficulties for the military if reform is delayed.

“I see the next two years as partly peaceful and partly chaotic and this will not augur well for peace and stability in this country if the army is not properly looked after”, he warned.

Deng Alfred Akuoc, a native of Warrap state currently visiting Juba said president had kept faith with several close allies who add absolutely no value to the cabinet and had murky records from the previous administration.

“There are names people did not want to hear when the decree was being announced. Some people left when they heard their names. They left because these are the people who failed the president in the past and their returning to the government again means more failure,” he said

"I doubt they will be able to work together, since they tried and failed before, but I hope they will. This country is suffering", he added.

JUUK ALSO CRITICIZED

However some South Sudanese criticized Juuk’s appointment as defence minister saying he failed to quell an insurgency led by David Yau Yau and to end insecurity in the troubled state of Jonglei. They also wondered why no governor was appointed to replace him

Paul Lado, a university student in Juba appreciated the leanness of the cabinet appointed by the president but was disappointed that some individuals who failed in other capacities are recycled and brought in.

"For instance, governor Kuol Manyang Juuk is already a failure in Jonglei state. If he couldn’t provide services to his state populations and defend his state from David Yau Yau, then how do we expect him to provide services in cabinet and defend the whole country?, He said.

Tut Gatluak from Jonglei state also wondered how the elected state governor was appointed as national defence minister without a replacement in place.

"I was surprised that our elected governor was appointed a national minister and no other decree came out for his replacement. Who is our governor now?" He asked, criticizing that elected governors should not be moved around different positions without consent of the citizens who elected them.

      Don’t lie. Only some from Bor South celebrated his appointment in order to loot the resources of the army. Kuol Manyang failed in Jonglei state. There is no way he can succeed in the army he doesn’t even have children in. Generals on the ground will not report to him. He will be bypassed for sure!

        The butcher Kuol Manyang has betrayed the people of Jonglei state by accepting to go for greener pasture in Juba. He rigged himself in as governor last time only to leave the people of Jonglei without an elected governor. Shame on Kuol Manyang. May be he is afraid of Yau Yau and he is running away from him leaving his people to Yau Yau mercy.

    Mr President i know very well that you a real leader with good prospective,deserving your position as a president congratulation to your government you make and did it well.no way if Kuol is not brought to army for other people to get chance since he overseated with hyperadrenaline slapping his subordinates. one thing am asking is that take Kok Ruea to be a governor, replace John Luk to be a VP.

      Dear Gatluak Reat,
      I think you are focusing on your self-interest regardless of the national, how do you know these people are deserving in the governorship than other to be brought as you have desired. Governor is not easy after it has been dirtied by Mr. Butcher Former Governor Kuol Majuuk who is so called Defense Minister.
      Next John Luk Jok is not interested in VP post for your information.

    Dear Readers,
    Plse! nobody for sure to say Kuol Manyang is right person at the right position at the right time. Is wrong person at the right po’nt/ time unless his Food Lovers who are not seeing the truth. Kuol is the one who reduces the number of the SPLA during struggling by killing them without genuine reason and is claiming now to do the pass again, but it will be too late to him.

    Wang and JonglieVision!
    I agreed with both of you 100% for disapproving Kuol M appointment as a national denfense minister. I have two reasons as state them above, for why Kuol is not a right man for this very important portfolio ministry.

    The reason kac-lora was not declared was, because ur so called illetrate president kirr was not around that’s day. But the question is, where were your king that day’s on 23/07/2013? so that we can declare kac-lora.

    @MiDiit,
    My dear brother with your colleagues, I have just register on Sudan tribune comments page because of your negatives attitudes towards everything that come out of the current government. Indeed you might be the most corrupt guy even in your own house, accept change or God himself will do it in your regretful way!
    Please, if you are a real child of this Nation, adjust yourself.

    there are time when people miss the point, i.e Kuol Manyang appointment to defence has difference with being a governor, Yau Yau was decleared a rebel and division 8 is not being command by the governor hence he Kuol cann’t be blame on failure of security in Jonglei state. it is a collective responsibility of all south sudanese especially the national government.

      Congratulation General Kuol manyang Juuk for your appointment as Defense Minister,that was my thought earlier on.South sudan needs a disciplined Army not like the Congolese Kabanyola who want to get their pays from the citizens on the street.
      Real reform is needed in the Army we have our freedom already all we need now is to transform the South sudan Army into a viable,knowledgable national army.

    Koul M appointment is not welcome. But rests of new of new form government are warmly welcome to their new posts.
    Reason #1 why Kuol M appointment is not welcome, he is a tribal mindset to believes that’s bor are born to rule.
    Reason #2 Kuol M kills any appose him for democratic change. e.g he killed Goerge Arthor, because Goerge Arthor appose him, when he Kuol M lost election to Goerge Arthor.

      General Kuol will surely restructure the SPLA and will punish thieves who steal the money and food of soldiers.Hoth should not be spared for he is one of those thieves.When he was a first head of SPLA logistics,he sown this merciless corruption by allowing logistics to sell soldiers food at broad day light with impunity.Salaries are taken away from soldiers mercilessly.Hahaha

    Kuol could be good defense minister especially if he is inclusive when making decisions. Jonglei State was and is still a state in crises not only because of Yau Yau, but Murle. I believe Kuol & SPLA will do their part in restoring stability in the country. I also hope the Nuer & Murle think more about peaceful coexisting, I hope the next Governor of Jonglei would put that on top of his/her list.

    Funny, because the child from "biel" and "thief" background had formed his own government. He rewards himself with defense position, and and other two ministers plus his position. The total from his own Bor County/Dinka Bor people. 8 Ambassadors.
    Good job dictator, Kuol Manyang Juuk, you have totally your Boss President Salva Kiir as your tribe puppet.

    Kuol Manyang should be a good Kuol Manyang this time. If there is any misunderstanding or a mistake be him. It will lead into a major civil war which none of us wants. We do not want the whole world to laugh at us that we cannot rule ourselves. This is very important to know and to remember than tribalism.

    This was one of the reason that Dr. Riek was very peaceful on his remarks because he will give President Kiir a chance to form his new government. If he fails to deliver services to our people, than he will be voted out, and we will bring Dr. Machar to clean the mess. Hope you do not make any mistakes that will lead you down once and for all.

      We still need Kiir for up to 15 more years,for he is the only leader who can tell the young generation the objective history of the formation of the SPLA/M in Itang/Bilpam in July 1983 after Kerubino Kuanyin chased Nyagaats out of Itang(Ashua) and Bilpam.We need him alot,more than ever before.

    People,
    The dictator Kiir has spoken. Whatever you are doing is NOISE. I advise all of you to just shut up. The new defense minister will go after dissidents like Machar, Yau Yau, and anyone else who don’t like Kiir. I smell an end to federalism and democracy. I’m Dinka, but I’m South Sudanese FIRST and I hate all IDIOTS who use power to their benefit.

    The DINKAs are brave, honest, and trustworthy because of their liberalism. They have a sense of RIGHT and WRONG. Kiir decided TRIBALISM and DINKA domination are the keys as Kenyatta did in Kenya. There is a reason to how Dr. Garang design SPLM/SPLA. I suggest KIIR look for it, unless if he wants another SOMALIA in South Sudan. For ALL DINKAs and NUER who defends ALL THESE CRAPS, I’m ASAHME of YOU.

      There is no way SPLA was design in way to benefit others, it was voluntary revolution where officers were arranged according to the military ranking and that of proverbs early birds catches the worms. Late Garang can’t make you a commander when you are in the neibhouring counties hiding from death.Most of the SPLA founders are dead only survived by the current President Kiir.

    Hi slaves/Mapuor
    Sorry we dont’t need another 15 years rule under Kirr leadership, enough of 8 years. All we need now as South Sudanese citizens, to wait until 2015 to votes Salva Kirr out from the power through election.
    FYI: Kirr does not know what’s are objectives and goals, leave alone the history of SPLM/A when it was form. Please no body will understood your useless claims here.
