Lol state deputy governor resigns to protest Kiir’s failure to run the country


May 22, 2017 (JUBA) – Lual Dau Marach, the Deputy Governor of the newly formed Lol State has resigned from his position, accusing President Salva Kiir of failing to run the country adding he shoulders the responsibility of the country’s crisis.

Lol State“President Kiir is a liability and an utter failure. Even if he is given another ten years, he will never bring change,’ wrote Marach in a resignation letter dated 19 May 2017.

Marach, who until he resigned from his position as the Deputy Governor in Lol, pointed out that the problem the country was facing was the President himself and not the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) nor the people of the country.

If anything, the country will continue to go down in the drain,” said Marach.

He called for unity of all armed and non-armed opposition forces to fight for his removal.

The former Deputy Governor also accused President Kiir of allowing the Jieng (Dinka) Council of Elders to divide the country into ethnic enclaves.

“The President has, lamentably, allowed the Jieng (Dinka) Council of Elders to tarnish the image of the Dinka and the country by extension. They have succeeded in giving birth to an intolerable monster and deadly regional politics. I simply cannot be part of such a government,” he wrote.

      Congratulation deputy governor for your resignation from Kirr government. Kirr want to be the only Dinka president for making all Dinka enemies of all South Sudanese. Dinka are good people but kirr and his JCE are doing evil thing to citizen of This Country. Thank you for your word brave deputy governor.

        Marach was working as insider rebels that use to plan assassination to governor Zachariah, but his plan had been discovered and that is why he quickly pretend himself to be resignation to dash his plan.
        Marach think he is smart but people are washing you since day one of your appointment as deputy governor.

    You did not tell the truth, in former NBG State you were a minster of agriculture, then in Lol state you become a deputy governor while Silva Kiir is the same president. If you rebelled tell the public that your time has come to rebelled not much, you should not accept from very beginning to held any position in the failed government as you quoted, when did you find out the failure of government

    You see,this stupid greedy animal called Lual Dau Marach is now pretending to protest against President Kiir’s government in which he served as Minister of Agriculture in former NBG state.

    At that time as Minister he did nothing tangible in the Ministry but diverted Ministry fund for his own used. Likewise he built a very luxury house which he never had in Marialbai. Shame on you!

      Hello Marialadot or wherever you are called,
      Please stop attacking wen Dau Marach, this idiot Kiirdit should not be reinforced let him die alone. Reminisce that Lual Dau came with his own money from US and that is the money he used to build himself that luxury house you are talking of. Please don’t be an idiot like Kiir to say that!
      Shame on you for felling jealous about wen Dau Marach ‘s house.

    At least South Sudan is now beginning to properly diagnose their illness by not blame Dinka as a tribe, but singling out Salva Kiir as the man who has failed them. I advise you all South Sudanese (64 tribes) to unite and uproot Salva Kiir and his administration and rebuild your country once again.

Now, I and others who are upright can not take Lual decision to resign as Kiir Failing South Sudan but he resigned simply there is no money in Lol to pocket and run away with like he did in NBG when he was Minister.Wen Dau Marach

      Marialadot thanks for the insult i salute you, henceforth do you meaning Kiir government has a system? if I can ask you what is the system? According to businessdictionary, a system is a set detailed method, procedures and routines created to carry out a specific activity, perform a duty or solve a problem. Do Kiir ‘s government has that? Don’t be fooled by Kiir Ayuei brother, Kiir is stupid huma

        Dumomakuachdit, don’t take this as personal, My surprise is, why did he work twice in the government which has lost the vision? The agenda behind his resignation is not kiir but lack of Money in Raja. I was surprise when you said he came with money from USA, Lual’s work in USA was washing of dogs & eating left overs that is why you see him with those heavy buttocks like that of a woman.

          It is you who have taken as personal since there is something common between you and Lual Dau Marach(DauCam)which is Marial, because you must be from this locality and that is why you are really tough on him. Otherwise take it easy we are all South Sudanese no matter these muddles brought by Kiir Ayuei- Kuethpiny Akotkopbaak Mayardit.

        Yes Dumomakuachdit, I am from Marialbai but I don’t have personal problem with Wen Dau Marach. But what he did to 2 youth whom he arrested is not good, he was trying to assassinate them by trying to take them to Raja after 6 days in prison at Nyamlel without food or water till Akot Deng ordered their immediate release from the CID. This guy is a thug and pure greedy.
