August 1, 2014 (RUMBEK) – The caretaker governor of South Sudan’s Lakes state, Matur Chut Dhuol, has fired his minister for information and communication.

Marik Nanga Marik, according to a decree read on state-owned 89 FM radio Thursday, ceased being Lakes state’s information minister effective from 31 July.

The decree did not mention why he was sacked.

The official, appointed in March this year, appeared to have fallen out with the governor on how the latter managed state affairs.

Marik, however, downplayed the matter insisting it was upon the appointing authority in Lakes state to decide on who should serve the people and were mandated to sack them if necessary.

“There is no problem at all. It is policy, anytime you are appointed and at any time you can be changed,” he reportedly told journalists in Rumbek on Thursday.

“I was an MP and I am better to serve people in parliament, more mistakes are being committed and I cannot resign because this is an SPLM base government that requires us all to work,” added the former minister, whose successor was yet to be named.

    Dictatorship in action, if you disagree with what they are doing, point out their mismanagement of public offices and funds and blame them for causing insecurity to citizens, they sack you. That is what Salva Kiir has done to Dr Machar. Lake States, you are far better than what has been happening in you areas, imagine how many deaths since 2008 because of military rule? Get civilian rulers instead

    Is just a political change, no problems. Event brand news will be floating in for the rests of the politicians/ministers shortly. Governor is not mistaken for decree he has presented.

    Good riddance. Wasn’t this the fool spouting anti-federalism nonsense not too long ago to appease his masters in Rumbek and Juba? There’s no honour amongst thieves.
