March 22, 2017 (JUBA) – The leadership of the faction of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM-IO) allied to the first Vice President Taban Deng Gai has openly welcomed the appointment of one of its representatives, as part of the power sharing deal by the Wau state governor.

The 2015 peace deal provides that 18% of the cabinet ministers, advisors and civil servants be appointed from Equatoria and Bahr el Ghazal regions.

In a statement, the SPLM-IO said the state governor had appointed one of its members, David John Pons as the new state Minister for Information.

“The newly appointed Minister of Information in Wau Hon. David John Pons visited SPLM-IO Secretary General Dr. Dhieu Mathok in his office. The General Secretariat posted pictures to show appreciation to the Wau state government’s response to the President’s directives to appoint SPLM-IO members in their respective States in compliance with full implementation of the peace agreement,” read a statement posted by Ramzi Matueny Muorwel.

There was a picture showing the Electricity and Dams minister, Dhieu Mathok and the new minister shaking hands.

Wau is the first state in the Bahr el Ghazal region to adhere to the recommendation by President Salva Kiir, who requested all the state governors to appoint SPLM-IO representatives allied to Gai.

    I believe this young politician will deliver given his fluency in English, Arabic and some small Dinka. He is also the son of the soil. We hope he will now talk to his fellows in SPLA IO around Wau to cease hostilities and embrace peace.
    Governor Mayar should also bring on board those veteran politicians of the state whom he left out in his cabinet before. The aim should be to unite our people.

      You should not expect Taban to remain Riek’s tool for life, he is a man by himself, he followed him in 1991 & 2013 why to run after a looser all the time
