The government chief whip, Khan Nin Yieh said removal by the governor of his deputy was unacceptable and will weaken the state administration.

Yieh described Biel as a very “dedicated” and “selfless” state civil servant.

Biel was a member of the red army who joined the liberation struggle in the earlier ages,” he said, stressing that the deputy governor’s commitment to the country and its people was always beyond individual aspirations.

The chief whip claimed the governor surrounds himself with “notorious” individuals to continue running the state with “lies, greed and selfishness”.

The officials have urged the Transitional Government of National Unity (TGoNU) under South Sudanese President, Salva Kiir Mayardit and first vice president Taban Deng Gai to undertake urgent measures to address the Southern Liech state political situation.

      Nyuong Gueh and Dok Gueh minus the puppets of JCE are immediate family forever.

      Gen. Tap Puot Kaang of Nyuong Gueh and Gen. Mawich Nhial Phaan of Dok Gueh are there with their people.

      God bless you Gaatgueeh.
      God bless Dr. Machar Teny Dhurghon

    Let them fight themselves.They are all useless guys. They betray their people because of money.That is why they are now called Nuer Wew.Look the street boy so called Khan Nin become chief whip.The Jieng Council of Evil give them money so that they kill their own people.They will one day see the consequence of what they have done to their own families.

      We need peace among South Liech state community. Dok, Nyuong, Dor and haak are all brothers.All government supporters in South Liech state are liberators who joined the SPLA in its early days be they red army or grown ups. People like Kuong Danhier was in Jamus and they were the first who pioneered the struggle.
