In a December 20 letter, a copy of which Sudan Tribune obtained, Kuol accused Joseph Ayok Anei for being disrespectful to the office of the minister.

"I do here issue this suspension order for the suspension of Ambassador Reverend Joseph Ayok Anei (...) for disregard of my orders on a number of occasions and refusal, ignorance and failure to obey and comply with the laws governing ministry of foreign affairs and international cooperation," partly reads the minister’s letter.

Anei was appointed undersecretary weeks before Alor took over the ministry, in what analyts described as an attempt to place those loyal to the president at the ministry.

The spokesperson for the foreign ministry was unavailable for a comment.

    Well done Alor Kuol. Discipline has been the main problem making some drivers behave more senior than their bosses they drive. Deal with them accordingly and I pray that you will continue disciplining them. However, I am afraid that a Republican Decree will see you soon dismissed from your portolia begin sweating again. Goodluck.Wait for repercussions.

    That’s the law. No one is above the law and he doesn’t comply with the law, he must be suspect. Therefore, you have right to suspect him Mr. Kuol. Let him learn and comply with the law.

    The FDs should know that they should not put their political miscalculations and frustrations on subordinates like Ayok. I hope Ayok is more understandable/qualified more then Deng does. Sorry for President who scarifies Ayok. Leave this minster to them/Abyei to mess it up like IOs/Nuer ones. They are doing one thing. No shame!!!!!!!

    Do not judge Alor on basis of his being FD or Abyei. Don’t know even the crisis we have in the country is due to absence of rule of law. There are those who don’t even respect the orders of the President, yet he was the one who appointed. His Execellency means everything must right, anything wrong not TOLERABLE. Alor resprents H.E Kiir and so he rightly dismissed stubborn Ayok to be inv.

      Thanks FAIR MAN, I thought These guys would come with positive changes not rotten degrees/orders/suspensions. Now what is the different between his and unstoppable degrees that brought us to stupidity and madness. They are not even for interest of South Sudanese. Only themselves since 2005. Ayok is the new guy and victim of this rotten system. Not respect always they should understand subordinate

    There high degree of certainty that this suspension was the last option. Alor may be guilty of abuse of office if he did not want Ayok for atleast three times. On the other hand, if warned, rest in peace. He deserves not only suspension but dismissal from the ministry and sent home. A disgrace to the Ministry where orderliness is highly desired. Decrees are not laws. Can be opposed.

    In RSS, so-called Members of Parliament do not know their roles. From Igga to Rundial’s reeign, they have lacking agenda to discuss in their sittings, when raising motions to reverse some of the controversial Republican Decrees deserved being declared unlawful and null and void. Unfortunately they failed and the current will follow the suit into the same dustbin. God forgive them.
