The appointment, Kenya’s the Star newspaper reported, is detailed in 8 December letter, which was signed by the South Sudan leader.

“This Decree shall be cited as “The Republic Decree No.324/2016 for the Appointment of the Republic of South Sudan Special Envoy to the Federal Republic of Germany 2106 A.D.” shall come into force on the date of its signature of the President of Republic,” it noted.

Omullo, in a separate letter, will reportedly take charge of South Sudan’s international and regional affairs on the same capacity.

The special envoy reportedly brings lots of experience in international trade and diplomacy affairs, having worked as the Business Development manager for Africa for Celle Brunnenbau, GmBH.

Over the years, however, the Kenyan national has been engaged with issues of South Sudan in trade and diplomacy for a long time.

Omullo welcomed her appointment by President Kiir and pledged to serve diligently to the benefit of the citizens of South Sudan.

“I am fully focused to do my best to serve well. I take the opportunity to thank President Kiir for the confidence and trust he has bestowed on me,” she told the Kenyan daily.

          There are well educated Equatorian sisters who could qualify for the job. But cos of jienges reservations and disgust for Equatorians, and cos no nyanjienges are educated(married off at teenage) Kiir has given that post to foreigner. That is not new, Kiir gave his eldest daughter to a Habbash. His wife is half-Greek, South Sudan is run, fed and helped by foreigners cos Kiir has failed it.

            SS sovereignity has already been compromised. Kiir has already allowed prostitutes, conmen, thugs and criminals, refugees from Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Congo etc. to enter the country, get citizenship, do business, marry, steal. Now even appoint foreigners as diplomats. The last thing, is Kiir to give up his office and just let M7 or some jellaba take over. That´s it.

    Germany should not fall in the same trap set by Kiir for the Americans. Obama has been duped to the extend of extending a helping hand to Kiir’s murderous regime by promising to train his tribal army, the SPLA. Norweigian are also at the reciveing end of Kiir’s wrath; The NRC boss has been booted out of the country. Now a concubine has been brought to do the dirty work on behalf of her husband!!!!

      The Kenyan lady is not married to any South Sudanese. Akuma is just lying. Her appointment was a reward to Kenyan government for deporting James Gatdet Dak. I am telling you the truth that lady has never and does not have any relationship with any South Sudanese man at all. Believe me friend she is not in any kind of relationship with any S. Sudanese man at all.

    It’s normal but not good for the repetition of the government to appoint someone from just next door.

    Dear fellow country men & Women,

    I am so disappointed with such sad news for the appointment of a Kenya citizen to the most powerful political position in the country. How many highly educated South Sudanese are on the street of Juba doing nothing? It is better to give this post to opposition parties than giving it to a foreigner.

    This shows how the present government plays with security of South Sudan and her citizens.How can alien represent eleven million people abroad while citizens who are capable of doing the job are being butchered?

    It was a wrong decision, even if she is married to a South Sudanese man; why giving such kind of position to foreign woman. It clearly shows our weakness.Yet we have many educated women who can do that job very well if it was restricted to be for women only.
