January 26, 2018 (JUBA)- Taban Deng Gai, whom President Salva Kiir appointed into the position of the first vice president in replacement of his main political rival and former first vice president turned rebel leader, Riek Machar, said he does not advocate the removal of his boss from power.

“I don’t advocate for Salva Kiir to leave power. He is an equilibrium of peace and unity just like Dr John Garang. If Dr John was to be alive, when will he leave power, asked Gai?"

“There is what we call a leader such Salva Kiir”, he added.

The remarks sparked debates in social media, with many people asking the cause for joining armed resistance with Machar at the start of the conflict in the country in 2013.

Taban made the remarks at a news conference at which he was updating the media of the objective of his two-week visit to Jonglei following his return to the capital, Juba.

The state-owned South Sudan Broadcasting Corporation repeatedly played the clip carrying the remarks after he held the press conference on Thursday. Gai said a liberator and liberators don’t leave power in Africa voluntarily. He compared South Sudan to Uganda, asking why President Yoweri Museveni changed the constitution to stay in power because liberators leave power voluntarily.

“If he leaves power, what will happen to Uganda? I am among those who advocate president Salva Kiir should continue in power leading the nation because he is equilibrium, he said.

The former chief negotiator of the movement under the overall leadership Machar before the split in July 2016 after he was forced to flee the country following the resumption of hostilities in the capital, Juba, declared his intention never to step down from power.“I will not step aside Riek Machar. Replacement of Taban Deng or Wani Igga can only be something that adds value”, said Gai.

Observers underlined Gai joined the rebellion in protest for removal from a gubernatorial position and was now willing to stifle the checks and balances of government to pass his agenda. Gai, according to the same analyst, was paranoid and willing to go to criminal means to hold on to power. Gai used power to level personal grievances.

      "Equilibrium"? The self-serving chimp is either unaware of its meaning or thinks we can be convinced that we’re experiencing "equilibrium".

These animals should hang for their crimes; this war has officially claimed over 50, 000 lives but if you consider their corruption-induced failure to deliver medical services since the Interim Period... is it not reasonable to hold them responsible for infant mortality deaths as well?

      Taban, would you please look back to 6 years. What did citizens of South Sudan gain out from it? Nothing, but death, destruction, and hopelessness. Therefore, we need to change the direction of the country. I believe P. Kiir is a great and honest man and criminals are taking advantage of it. Therefore, he needs to give up the power to those who can control the situation.

The foreign policy is very worst, citizens are suffering, even SPLA who defending them are facing difficulties and the direction is continues same way.

      What makes you think that people are jumping on any "bandwagon"? Do you really think that we can’t possibly arrive at our own conclusions independent of foreign meddling? Kiir didn’t assume power yesterday, so we’ve had plenty of time to make up our minds about him... and he’s rubbish. What sort of opinion (s) do you think we should have of Salva Kiir?

          ..there are no proper roads, schools, hospitals, universities, bridges, dams and airports in the entire country. Salva Kiir is an accidental ’leader’ and only ascended to his position due to the elimination of an actual leader. Salva Kiir must resign or be removed for the good of the country. The idea that the current environment will allow free and transparent elections is a joke.

    Are you worry, because if president step down and gave leadership to none of two vices president then, you will lose position? Basically, the country is belonging to all people therefore, let the new leader try if not working then he/she will hand it to another citizen like that. Ugandan president has managed the situation in Uganda, no any comparison about liberators leaders.

Take him away by force today or assassinate him God forbid, there will be no national leader that can bring South Sudanese or the so called 64+ tribes. You will have only anarchy and tribal killing and the weak ones will be eliminated/displaced by the strong ones till we all get finished.

The whole Nuer tribe (village youths, women, old men, police, prisons, wildlife, and some Nuer SPLA soldiers) to march to Dinka areas and kill every living Dinka found( Bor, Bentiu, Malakal, Baliet, Atar, Panaruu, Melut, Dukein, etc).

    True and genuine road map to peace and unity and development and happiness in South Sudan is only through this: STOP THE CURRENT MEANINGLESS WAR, SIGN COMPREHENSIVE PEACE, AND FINALLY GENERAL ELECTIONS. Anything apart from this above road map is a catalyst for worst disaster since foreigners have cleverly disguised their greedy interests behind the wars and more wars in South Sudan.

      Mayendit and Bull. First, A legitimate election must be held to get the country back to 2005 to 2012. P. Kiir and Machar must be excluded from the election. Second, power must be given to country representatives and these representatives must be elected by the citizens in each state. Third, we need to go back to 10 states. President must serve only two (2) terms. Tribal hatred must be eliminated.

        Elections? The first order of business must entail the removal of Salva Kiir’s entire regime. There should be no elections for at least two years; our population must first return, recover, reconcile and rebuild before we can speak of elections.

Many of us have become lazy thinkers and often seek quicker solutions for complex problems. Kiirminal as head of a rotten system must go and so pave way for complete societal overhaul.

                It’s just simple for someone like you who support rebellion in South Sudan to say Kiir must go, but you have to deal with millions of people in South Sudan who have different opinions about Kiir leaving power. It is like other I saw your comments where you said America should pay Kenya and Uganda to abandon Kiir. Rebellion in South Sudan is national security threats to Uganda and Kenya.

                  Just answer the simple question; what is the price SS are paying now by having the Kiirminal yet in power than if we had him removed? You have clear evidences which Khent has elaborately outlined. Yet, still having him in power and given the current trend of events, things are not getting anywhere better. You have no choice.

                  Rebellion is a resultant effect once amicable dialoging has failed. There´s no space for expressing one´s opinion freely, therefore rebellion becomes indispensible. Kiirminal is running SS as a rebel outfit and were he to run the SPLA during the the 21 yrs in this manner, we could be NOWHERE close to having a country.

No. I rather be a rebel and die fighting than subserviently licking the master´s food plate. You want Kiirminal is that so?

                      jubaone,

                      Iam a free thinker and my community is in my heart. If we want to safe life in South Sudan, we should work toward peace, have 5 years transitional government to prepare for free election, this is the best way to change government in South Sudan. This means, Kiir’s exit must be planned and prepared, not just let Kiir leave. Many people will die if Kiir leaves today.

No schools,hospitals,roads,electricity or even the least of the leasts...clean water!Therefore,you and the whole bunch of criminals must be removed from power by all means necessary and taken to court.You thieves must answer questions and face retributions.

                        Well and well......Kiir can’t be the one leading that kind of transitional election either. It’s good for Kiir and his Dinka tribe that leaves power sooner than later. There are more than enough individuals who who can manage this country during and transitional period followed by a general election. NO MORE OF KIIR!

                          Please get this into your mind. There is no going to be a government in South Sudan without Dinka, period. We can talk about trying to fix current system we have South Sudan so that everyone in South Sudan can have a chance to shine on the merit. Any talk about not wanting Kiir and Dinka will keep Kiir in power for another 30 years.

                            So long as you morons want to stick on Kiir as leeches, there won’t be peace! Kiir is a dinka, that’s the truth but he’s occupying a public office notwithstanding his TRIBAL TRADEMARK! The sooner Kiir leaves the scene, the better for him. Kiir had the opportunity of remaining at the helm with some power ceded to Dr. Machar but his dinka zealots advised him against that arrangement.

                              You are weak and nothing you can do to Kiir. The best chances for you to be something in South Sudan is to work for peace, other than that, you are wasting your time in internet. Get it straight from me Mr. KARAMA.

                        Yes, elections to be planned and prepared! Who plans and prepares? Kiirminal wants to be the player and referee at the smae time, even by local luak standards during match wrestling games, there´s an independent referee. On the same note, your assertion that manypPeople will die when the kiirminal leaves, is falls. Many are dying,if he still hangs on!

                          You just want to change the government in South Sudan. You do not think about the consequences after that. Kiir will not leave because rebels want to, Kiir will leave power when people of South Sudan want him to leave. Without this senseless war, Kiir would not be a president now, he would be out long time ago, but rebels who has no single agenda are keeping him in power indefinite.

                            South South,
                            The people of SS have chosen with their feet; over 1/3 of the population has fled the country, another 1/3 internally displaced and living deplorable, inhumane conditions and rest 1/3 starving and malnourished. What evidence do you need more? You’re living in the diaspora and dreaming.

                        How will people die if Salva Kiir were made to depart today!? There was a South Sudan before him and there will be a South Sudan after him — a much better one in the event of his departure. There are people in this country that are infinitely more suitable for Executive Office; these people include Dr Richard Mulla, Bishop Paride Taban and Peter Sule.

                I really do appreciate your kind, complementary take on what I do here. I maintain that the lack of properly thought out analysis is not a product of laziness but a product of greed and a lack of care; those that defend the criminal regime are part and parcel of this sick system, so they feel threatened when this criminal system is criticized...

          Khent, you denied an election. Who is going to be a president if P. Kiir and Machar are not going to be excluded? I am telling you the truth, my friend. First, we need strong security before citizen return to the broken down country. Also, an election is the key to put the right leaders in leadership positions. How can you "rebuild" the country if we do not have the right leaders to build it?

            You cannot have an election when a large portion of the population are still displaced; Salva Kiir and his regime are responsible for the current situation, and so things can only improve if an interim administration is formed and given the mandate to govern for five [5] years or so. These people must be qualified and innocent of human rights violations and must not be corrupt.

    Salva Kiir must be careful. Being a close friend with Taban is like being a friend with a snake. I’m afraid kiirdit is aware about what his friend is up to.
