The changes, the state-owned South Sudan Broadcasting Corporation (SSBC) announced, saw removal of Abraham Makoi, the Western Lakes governor and his Eastern Lakes state counterpart, Rin Tueny Mabor from their posts.

Kiir appointed Matur Chut Dhuol as Makoi’s successor, while Bior Philip replaced Mabor.

No reasons were, however, cited in the republican order for these new changes.

    What on earth is President Kiir Upto! Changing leaders like clothes is among the causes of instability in the Country. We want a constitution that will enable citizens to elect governors so that they are held accountable by their electorates. God save our Country!!

    Mistake after mistake and President Kiir never learn from his mistakes. My advice to you is that you need to stop your executive power because it messes up the country.

    This is too much, where then can we get competent people if everyone who is a take holder of this country can not be trusted? I don’t think even America can rule this country successfully due to this ideology of our leaders.
