David Moses Lokonga, according to his Tuesday’ order, has appointed 13 county commissioners after issuing an order to create more counties in fulfillment of the presidential directives authorizing all the governors of the new states to create counties and appoint new officials in their new territories.

The order named Luka Nyombe as the county commissioner for Kajokeji, Juluis Tabule for Kangapo, Lasu Erasto for Kupera, Augustino Kiri for Lanya, Victor Ware for Liwolo and Toti Jacob for Lujulo

Other officials include Samuel Henry who has been named Marobo county commissioner, Natalino Lasuba for Mugwo, Beneia John for Mukaya, Julius Lokonga for Nyepo, Anthony Ande for Otogo, Martin Dodo for Tore and Bidali Cosmas for Yei River county.

The appointments also came as fighting escalates around Yei River state’s capita between rival forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and opposition leader, Riek Machar, as opposition forces control some of the areas in the state.

Yei is located south of the South Sudanese national capital, Juba.
