September 3, 2016 (KHARTOUM) –The Payinjiar community living in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum have impeached their community leader, John Kassara Koang, accusing him of having allegedly been bribed with over $500 when South Sudan’s first vice president Taban Deng Gai visited Sudan.

Dominic Keah Puot, an executive committee member of Payinjiar board in Sudan told Sudan Tribune that the entire community dismissed Koang for taking a bribe.

“We would like to inform the public that Payinjiar community executive board has impeached community chairman John Kassara Koang Nhial who recently joined [President] Salva Kiir camp. We totally rejected the behavior that may spoil the community who played a great role for progress of SPLM/A I.O in Unity State,” he said.

The community has now appealed to its members across the globe to cut ties with Koang for his allegedly bribery involvement. He the embattled chairperson also failed to attend a meeting organized by the community in the Sudanese capital last month.

Kuet Chuol, the deputy chairman of the community, vowed to execute his duties diligently.

He accused the former community chairperson of allegedly misusing his position and abusing his constitutional mandate.

“The step which has been taken by John Kassara Koang is a criminal act. Koang has surrendered himself to Jieng Council of Elders after he was bribed with only 500 USD. We are therefore asking the authority of Nuer communities to cut communication with him [Koang],” explained Chuol.

Sudan Tribune was unable to reach the ex-community leader, despite repeated attempts.

    This is nothing but a usual way of trying to takeover the leadership position. Even evil will reject Nuer for the greediness for power, in the POC there is always a struggle for just Head of cleaners, Head of hygiene campaign etc. Anything to do with head is a problem to Nuer

    What? $500! John Kassare is the only hopeless Payinjiar ever born in that great land. Why didn’t he requested me for that amount instead if destroying his future?
    $500 equivalent to 7,500 Sudanese Pounds nowadays in Khartoum. They can finish in five days time if he eats and walk with people but can last for 15 days if the usual living style of selfish and lair Kassare who call himself Minnesota SG
