November 13, 2016 (JUBA)- A gubernatorial adviser in the newly created Tonj state of Bahr el Ghazal region, home to President Salva Kiir has been arrested and relieved from his position for meeting the former First Vice President and the leader of armed opposition, Riek Machar last April.

“Yes, I have been relieved from position as an adviser to the governor and arrested. I don’t know the reason because I was not told. But now I’m hearing from the personnel of the National Security Service that the order to arrest me came from the above,” Andrew Kuac Mayol told Sudan Tribune on Sunday.

Mayol admitted meeting Machar in April after returning to the country in accordance with the provision of the August 2015 peace agreement which he and President Salva Kiir signed to the conflict which erupted in 2013.

“Yes, I met Dr. Riek Machar in April. It was nothing secret. I met him with other officials not only from Tonj from different states and areas in South Sudan who are still in the government holding key position," Mayol said.

"We went to congratulate him for accepting to come to Juba so that this senseless war stops," he added.

The sacked official said he was actually implementing a call by President Kiir.

"We did it so because President Salva Kiir himself called on all the SPLM leaders and members to help him lead reconciliation and forgiveness. It was not because I wanted to join him."

The official claimed that he is being mistreated in the detention for no reason.

    Nonsense, what are doing with Taban in Juba if you had relieved Kuac Mayol because he met Dr Machar in April? this is hatred, there is no reason to arrest Mayol at all.

      Mitot,
      Kuac Mayol is idiot, why he is still with government since he already join Riek militias movement. Kuac should follow Riek in the bush rather talking nonsense here. Riek & Kuac are birds of the same feathers. You can’t be advisor in the government that you are opposing. It is good he has been relieved. Let Riek Machar employed him. Congratulation to Governor for doing that good work

        @ Akuma in April Dr Riek was FVP in government second to president and nothing Mayol done wrong, if he got that chance to meet top government official. Just like many now who are busy meeting Taban. this indicated and surface what was conspiracy and plan to assassinated and ousted Dr Riek by then.

        Dear Akuma,
        Kuach was not an idiot the idiot person is you, because in April up to July 6/2016 every body meet Dr Riek Machar including your idiot President Kiir, if it means defection Kiir also defect to Dr Riek because he met him.
        When your foolishness is going to finish if you are mistreating South Sudan citizen for no reason? Think like a human being.

        Dr Riek is a south Sudanese and has right to speak to any south Sudanese on a matter of personal or national interest regardless of location, political affiliation. It’s funny, today if Kiir quarrelled his wife can he stop his children from communicating with their mother? that Governor is crazy and mentally challenged this is cases supposed to be handled by a hybrid court

        Akuma,
        This is very good warning-shot especially for jienges who may betray the jienge-cause of ruling the South for another 200yrs. All must adore Kiir and fear him. Anyone who deviates or rebels against the jieng-cause will be punished; no more money for food and children in Uganda or Kenya. So all jienge think twice and the Benydit has the final word. Don’t mess around.

        Kuac Mayol cannot be dismissed for that reason, because when Dr. Riek Machar return to Juba everybody met him included Salva Kiir meet with Dr. Riek many time in Juba and others Government officials also meet too. So dismissal of Mayol by Governor is miss using of Power.
