August 25, 2018 (JUBA) - New South Sudan Ambassador in Washington Philip Jada is due to take office next September after meeting President Salva Kiir last Monday.

Diplomatic sources in Juba said Jada will head to Washington on 5 September as his accreditation ceremony will take place on 17 September.

Following a meeting with President Kiir attended by Foreign Minister Nhial Deng Nhial on 20 August, Ambassador Jada vowed to work for the improvement of bilateral relations which have been affected by the civil war.

He further said he "received directives and guidelines from President Kiir on how to carry on his duty"

The former South Sudanese Ambassador to the United States Garang Diing Akuong was recalled to Juba following Washington decision to impose an arms embargo on South Sudan on 2 February.

Jada’s appointment coincides with the end of the five-year conflict as the mediation plans to hold the final signing ceremony next week.

He worked as South Sudan ambassador to South Africa, Eritrea and also he worked as a diplomat in the South Sudan Embassy to Khartoum.

He studied journalism and mass communications at the University of Asmara, Eritrea.

    By posting an inept and little ’known’ Philip Jada, Kiir thinks his badly bruised relation with America will be mended by this EQUATORIAN and the dollars will continue pouring in to fund the product of the Khartoum a Peace Jokes.....! Nobody takes Kiir seriously these days among the diplomatic community. Don’t ask me why or how!
