November 17, 2016 (JUBA) – South Sudan main opposition party, the Democratic Change Party (DCP) of former Minister of Agriculture Lam Akol has suspended its Secretary General for allegedly maintaining ties with the party’s previous leadership.

Akol, a former minister, left the South Sudan capital, Juba in August and declared the formation of an armed rebellion movement to fight President Salva Kiir’s government.

The DCP selected Onyoti Adigo as chairman last week in a process described as “illegal” by Secretary General Deng Bior. The DCP acted on Deng and four other “disgruntled” members, despite assurances that the matter would be sorted out peacefully.

“A committee has been formed to investigate them and if the five members fail to comply with the committee, their membership will be terminated,” said acting Secretary General, Yeka Peter Hillary.

He said Deng and his group are “linked” to former DCP leader Lam Akol – allegation the former strongly deny.

“They will have to prove that and if we get substantial evident written by them, we have to open a [police] case against them for trying to incriminate us,” Deng told journalists on Thursday.

Deng insisted that the process leading to Adigo’s selection as party chairman were not legally organized in accordance to party rules and regulations.

It is, however, not clear how long the committee would take before reaching a decision and Deng did not say if he will respect their decision.

    Deng Bior is a criminal, why does he join criminal party of Lam Akol who have not play any role in South Sudan. DC party is party of Shilluk and all its members must be from Shilluk tribes.

      This is the politics that you people does,t know, you can not believe only the party that is headed by your tribe. Deng has right to join that party, we need to be flexible in South Sudan.

      Don’t be so poisonous, but we should question Odigo’s action. He has been making a lot of noise about total freedom of opinions. Deng was on the opinion that the procedures of nomination were not followed. That is why I as a person believe that SSudan need different generation to make it a country, we are all suffering from the same disease

    Deng Bior was acting contrary, Dr Lam officially resigned and told party to nominate someone in his position. Unlike what Taban did to Riek. There’s not need to holdout. It was party decision unless he was interested in chairmanship of the party, though if he was the party rejected him and nominated someone of their choice. This how we create confusion.

    Onyoti Adigo must follow DCP constitution. There is no way that he imposes himself to DCP leadership without unanimous agreement by the Party members. Please leave Deng to exercise freedom of expression as you use to do in the national Assembly opposing every motion. Deng has a right to reject your leadership.
