July 30, 2014 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s president, Salva Kiir, has appointed former rebel leader David Yau Yau as chief administrator of the Greater Pibor Area in Jonglei state.

In a decree issued Wednesday, Kiir cited the peace accord recently signed with Yau Yau’s South Sudan Democratic Cobra Faction as the basis for the new appointment.

The decree, announced on SSTV, also approved creation of seven counties under the chief administrator. These counties include, Gumurok, Likuangole, Pibor, Bertak, Boma, Pochalla-North and Pochalla-South.

Kiir signed into law the peace agreement, which recognised the formation of the Greater Pibor Administrative Area (GPAA) last week. This came after government reached a deal with Yau Yau’s rebel movement in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia last May.

The South Sudanese leader had vowed to ensure the agreement was fully implemented, including the nominating an administrator and availing funds for the construction of a school, hospitals and a road in the Pibor area.

Yau Yau rebelled in 2010 after losing elections to represent Pibor county in Jonglei state’s legislative assembly, accusing the ruling Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) of rigging votes. In 2011, however, he accepted a presidential amnesty, but rebelled again the following year.

    You see how wise Kiir deals with rebels! He brings them into government.

    Riek’s days as a rebel are numbered. He too will be brought into the government as VP.

    Kir must remember that trying to kill politicians for having different opinions will lead to senseless civil war.

    Certainly Kiir is the wisest President of South Sudan there has ever been.

    South Sudan immediately needs constitution, road, food, health center, school...exactly in that order.

    It doesn’t need dictator, power hungry, thieves, hatred and definitely not more war or divisions be it federation or whatever.

    You ask for federal today and someone will ask for tribal division tomorrow.

    MR.POINT,
    PROACTIVE PRESIDENTS ARE THE WISER THAN THOSE WHO REACTIVE/ AFTER THINGS HAPPENED.
    IF KIIR WAS WISE ENOUGH, THERE COULD HAVE BEEN NO CIVIL WAR IN THE COUNTRY RIGHT NOW. PROBABLY, HE HAVE LEARNED A GREAT DEAL OF LESSON THROUGH THIS WAR. AND THERE FOR, THE NEXT ADMINISTRATIVE AREA HIS GOVERNMENT SHOULD A LOCAL SPECIAL FUNDS TO HAVE TO BE KAPOETA EAST WHERE MOTHERS STARVES TO DEATH YEARLY.

    MURLE YOUTH WAS ARMED BY KIIR HIMSELF NOT KUOL MANYANG. THE AIM WAS TO DISTABILISED JONGLEI IN ORDER TO ALLOW THE DIVERTING OF NGO AIDS AND OTHER FUNDS TO OTHER STATES MR. PRESIDENT THOUGHT WERE MORE IMPORTANT THAN GREATER UPPER NILE AND G.EQUATORIA STATES. THAT’S WHY POOR GEORGE ATHOR WAS PUNISHED BUT YAU YAU GETING REWARD FOR ACTROCITIES HE COMMITTED AGAINST HIS OWN STATE. VERY INTERESTED,HUH!

    DEAR MR.NGODODO,
    I AM NOT KUOL MANYANG’S CHILD NOR SUPPORTER, KUOL IS ALSO STUPID LIKE HIS MASTER KIIR MAYAR. OTHERWISE, HE WOULD HAVE NOT ACCEPT THE POSITION OF DEFENCE WHEN THE SPLM IS ABOUT TO BURST INTO DISASTER AS WE SEE. KOUL ALSO RUSHED SEVERAL TIMES TO DISARMIED DINKA AND LOU NUER WHILE MURLE YOUTH REMAINED ARMED TO THE TEETH BY JUBA & KHORTOUM. THERE’S RELIABLE EVIDENCES TO THOSE CLAIMS.
