Lewis Anei Madut, the ex-governor of South Sudan’s Warrap state, announced his decision to abandon the SPLM to form a new party, last week.

The official described his decision to form a new party the best thing a citizen can do to cause change instead of making change through violence and destruction in the country.

"I think people all over South Sudan are happy about the creation of the new Republican Party of South Sudan except for those who don’t care about the situation in the country”, said Madut, who was Secretary General of the Jieng Council of Elders.

He added that, "forming a Party is the best option a good Citizen can do instead of wanting to cause change through violence and destruction or instead of failure to do something and causing unbearable suffering to your countrymen."

"Peaceful flourishing of constructive ideas intended to salvage the Nation from its present chaos and anarchy should not be scorned," he said.

The ex-governor named the new party as the Republican Party of South Sudan.

    This newly created party by Madut will not attract South Sudanese from all over the country because of Madut’s link to a tribal entity, the Jieng Council of Elders, that propagated and planned the violence that erupted in Dec 2013 in which tens of thousands of ethnic Nuer got massacred, and the barbaric actions of the JCE spread to all parts of the country raping and killing innocent civilians.

    Well, they have looted enough and have formed this new so-called Republican Party of South Sudan, to accommodate Kiir and his likes as he by day becomes unpopular. This guys want to abandon SPLM Party, and Kiir is the indirect Chairperson of this party. You will see the end means later. Can yout separate JCE and Kiir? Who fund JCE and Anyoors-the Presidency held by Kiir. Safe trip to your luaks!

      You are absolutely right. This new party will not do anything at all. As long is creating by the same tribe from president kir. They are going to do something. The party must correct another party mistake. I believe this party will not do anything against president kir administration.
