The decree announcing Athiu’s sacking was issued on 2 January.

In the same reshuffle, Governor Phillip Aguer also relieved his political advisor, Agot Alier Leek, whom he re-appointed as deputy governor.

Other changes saw education minister, Susan Lith re-appointed as the state advisor for political affairs, while the state finance minister, Ayom Mach was moved to the education and sports ministry.

Ayom was due to appear before parliament on Tuesday to explain to lawmakers some financial problems facing the state. His relieve, according to some members in the parliament, was a cover up of serious cases state lawmakers wanted him to clarify.

Meanwhile, James Akech Yen was moved from the physical infrastructure to finance ministry, while Abel Manyok Ajak, a new entrant, was appointed as state minister for physical infrastructure.

    No work done by Aguer Panyang, his cabinets had no skills to work in ministerial positions..Lith has nothing in her mind, Ayom is unskill and uneducated person..ministry of education is dead and will have no improvement for good...Agoot will fool the governor.I doubt whether that state will do anything...God cares for your state...Abel Manyok is a primary leaver who will never pesent the land isue

      Maguto,
      You seem competent so why don’t you go to your jienge state and help your fellow jienges do the right thing? Kiir has given you your own states so get your jienges a***s together and don’t dream of Juba babysitting you all the time.

    Match ought to be done too, balancing of cabinet, I know in Bor County every one need to be a leader without self evaluation. Dr. Agoot deserved that pose too as Wal Athieu. Other ministerial portfolio it’s a disaster, it would have beena good time to bring in Amur Kuol to the ministry of Physical Infrastructure to complete his work and surveying of Bortown, if we really genuine for development.
