Unity state’s rebel governor appoints press secretary


March 4, 2015 (NHIALDIU) – The rebel governor for South Sudan’s Unity state, Brig Gen. Ruai Kuol Jal has appointed Weirial Puok Gatyiel as his press secretary.

Jal said the new press secretary will handle all his media-related matters.

"To all concerned media outlet, I wish to inform you to cooperate with above person for any kind of information related to media dissemination," Jal told Sudan Tribune.

This is the first time a rebel governor has appointed a press secretary in an area.

A former member of the national legislative assembly, Jal was the commissioner of Rubkotna county in Unity state prior to South Sudan’s cessation from Sudan in July 2011.

      You are as tribalist like Mapuor and Rommel in this forum.
      Why do you always generalise Nuer
      While people like my cousin Mayom County boy are praising you?
      Dont you know that 50% of Nuer are protecting you?
      Shame to my relatives for abusing their Nuer tribesmen while Dinkas are giving them bad names.
