December 10, 2013 (JUBA) – Senior leaders of South Sudan’s governing Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), have announced a plan to hold a public rally on the current internal party affairs, come 14 December.

The event, which will take place at Dr. John Garang’s memorial ground from 2:00pm, "aims to educate the public about the intended process of transforming the SPLM into a viable, democratic political party".

It will be conducted by the senior party leaders, including the first deputy chairman, Riek Machar, who on 06 December, voiced their concerns about the internal democratic transformational processes in the south-ruling party.

"The office of the first deputy chairman has therefore urged the public to turn up in big numbers at the memorial ground on Saturday, at 2pm, to hear from the leaders”, partly reads the statement.

Last Friday, leading members of the party opposed to president Salva Kiir’s policies organised a press conference denouncing the latter’s leadership style, giving him ultimatum to put things right or else they resort to the party constitution and act accordingly.

Madam Robecca Nyandeng, Pagan Amum and Deng Alor were among the other senior SPLM members who appeared besides Machar at the press conference.

          I was told Dinka Dominated SPLA/M was there when Dr. Machar and the other giants held the press conference in the heart of Kiir’s SPLM office in Juba. I was told he was clapping his hands when Dr. Machar spoke. He is planning to join Machar only that he is counting the days while cheating Kiir with loots.

        I think the need to get an approval from Ministry of Interior and National Security for conducting such public rally, otherwise it will be an illegal and the group may end up clashing with security forces, To ordinary and common citizens be careful not to attend such public rally without government approval, you may find yourself in jail.

              Does the two years old democracy of South Sudan differ with the one of nearly 300 years old of USA and Europe? If yes or no, why? Why does the West describe the democracy of certain developing countries in Africa, Middle East, Asia or South America as young or matured? Why does the political system of USA and Europe differ regardless of their common capitalistic economy?

      Is South Sudan turning to another Libya? Due to Kiir greedyness to hand over the SPLM chairmanship, to the wanted leader? In-fact this is a good news for me to see a dictator ousted by public rally, and even die humiliated like Maummar Gadaffi due to his dictatorial leadership style. South Sudanese are faded with this vision-less/alcoholic president of ours, who have no heart for nation building.

Look, others now in the government don’t want Kiir, but they pretend to like him because of positions. They are united by the fact that they together will continue to loot the public resources. Machar & the rest rejected Kiir while they were still in offices..

      In 2004 Rumbek meeting, Kiir himself asserted that The chairman (Dr John Garang) behave and seems to have taken the movement as his own property. SO question asked today is; if kiir thought that’s was wrong thing to do, then why is he now follow the same footstep? Or should we assume that Kiir might had a hand, in Dr John Garang Killing, in order for him to lead SPLM for Bar-el-ghazalian people’s?

Dr.Riak as you put it is a senior SSIM/A leader but not SPLM,on the other hand Nyadeng, was just a wife to the late Dr. John Garang, the only senior SPLM leader each one of us can talk about is Salva Kiir, but if any one is not aware than go back to the SPLM formation history and read more. but do not post wrong information.
