September 26, 2018 (JUBA) - As planned, President Salva Kiir appointed the 10 numbers of the National Pre-Transitional Committee (NPTC) tasked with the oversight and coordination of the implementation of the activities of the pre-transitional period.

In a presidential decree issued Wednesday but published Thursday, Kiir appointed 5 members picked by the incumbent government, two nominated by the SPLM-IO, one from the SSOA, one chosen by the FDs and one from the OPP.

In line with the revitalized peace agreement, the chairman of the NPTC should be from the incumbent government and will be flanked by two deputies one from the SSPLM-IO and the other from SSOA.

The ten members are the Chairperson - Tut Kew Gatluak - GOSS, Deputy Chairperson - Henry Odwuor - SPLM-IO, Deputy Chairperson - Gabriel Changson - SSOA, Secretary - Martin Elia Lomuro - GOSS. In addition, the committee members are Michael Makuei Lueth - GOSS, Dhieu Mathok Diing - GOSS, Awut Deng Achuil - GOSS, Deng Alor Kuol - FDs, Puot Kang SPLM- IO and Peter Mayen Majongdit - OPP.

The independent body will draw the roadmap for implementing the political tasks of the Pre-Transitional Period, and address issues of VIP security as per-security arrangements and preparations for new ministers, among others.

Also, it will prepare a budget for the activities of the Pre–Transitional Period. To finance these activities a special fund will be established with contributions from the government and donors.

NPTC will take its decisions by consensus, and it shall achieve its activities within eight months.

      A whole lot of nyagateen and jienges trying to run 🏃 a circus. Only cows are missing and that would make a huge luak in town. Already thokjiienge and thoknaath are official languages in most govt offices. Problem: they don’t have words for govt, ministers, committees, transition security etc. Primitive languages to lead a modern country? Wait till monkeys start speaking Bari.

        Let’s tell the truth, the second man in this committee is from Equatoria. As for Dinka language, it’s one of the strongest language we have in South Sudan. No one can force language on people. Languages impose themselves to people. I am not seeing anyone in Juba speaks Bari, only Arabic Juba is leading.

          Ofcourse we speak the Bari language among ourselves the Karo People and we also speak Arabi Juba cuz of the many "juron" in Juba. The word "Bari" means those that collectively take along from "Bar" or flood. We take everything on board. Bor for more than 600 yrs was Bariland till jienge savages arrived. Now they want Juba. No. Bows and arrows will work this time.

          If you jienges were hardworking and doing your things correctly, SS would not have been turned into a shithole. You even don’t know what you want. You want to rule, you fail. Just chilax and sing cow 🐮 songs while the others fix the SS. That would be great. Just accept you are losers, then we start allover.

        Jubaone, please wake up brother. we are in 21 century and you still have 15 hundreds mindset. To tell you the true, I speak Amharic, Nuer, Bari, zade, Kakwa, Kuku, Anuak, Arabic, but I do not feel inferior to any culture. I am lucky to speak these languages and be able to communicate effectively and make friends. Why do you think Dinka and Nuer are taking over the country’s languages?

      Kiir is confused as usual, he is appointing folks while his own army that he has control or has no control keeps on fighting IO. He needs to put South Sudan first before himself or tribe. No thanks to Kiir, he does not deserve the thanks; the world knows he is anti-peace, all he cares about is him, selfish, narcissist. People are suffering , almost half a million dead, so what type of leader is he
