December 24, 2019 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir has urged inmates of Juba prison to cooperate with authorities, saying those who have proven good conduct would have their cases reviewed and they would be released on the eve of new year.

Kiir made the remarks on Tuesday when he visited the inmates and staff of the National Prison Service in the South Sudan capital, Juba.

“Inmates who have stayed in prison for long time and have good conduct, even if there are a few months left, I have asked and recommended for their pardon, but this did not happen,” he said.

Kiir visited to see the conditions of the inmates and prison authorities.

The South Sudanese leader is expected to visit several institutions, including orphanage centers, the military and children hospitals.

The director general of the prison service, Henry Kuac Aguar called for review of cases, saying some inmates have overstayed in prison.

He urged the president to help the prison tackle challenges it faces.

Meanwhile, the interior minister, Michael Chiengjiek urged Kiir to construct a new prison to enable authorities carry out their mandate.

He said the national prison is too congested and more space is needed for inmates.

Currently, Juba Central prison reportedly has more than 1,300 inmates.

    I totally agree with you Mr. President. You are the head of the state and your orders should go through. In every country, president pardons inmates when they are in good conduct.

        I am an unapologetic supporter of not 32 but 64 or even 128 states in SS. Lumping different ethnicities with different cultural and moral backgrounds is not only stupid, but retrogressive. Putting jienges and Equatorians is like mixing water and oil. It can’t work. Lets break up SS first if we want to rebuild it.

          jubaone,

          Stupid an old man!!! You are weak, disorganized, not having people, not having an army and not having any single idea. How can you break up South Sudan which has very strong army, very strong people, well organized people and people with good ideas. Wishful thinking only is what you put out to us, wicked and monkey.

            Jienge kaffir, at 46yrs one would think that you were a 12yr old spewing the same shit allover. Too old to learn just the ordinary foolish and dummy majority. You dont want 10 or 64 states yet with 32 states you cant develop them. Like monkeys that only eat mangoes but dont know, they could make juice as well. Wasaka

              jubaone,

              Your uncle who is a real thief is hiding in Addis while he is claiming of having army called NAS. He is afraid of us and that’s the only reason he is hiding outside South Sudan. We’re here to rule and teach monkey lessons. You are a liar, like when you said Riek was released by UN and US, a lie!!!! Now you are saying, Iam 46 years old, a lie!!!!

        South South,

        Releasing a few jenge hailed because of killing Equatorians is not peace! Kiir is not the Alfa nor the Omega. You will soon come to realize why. Bu?lshit!

          Eastern,
          Lie and lies of Eastern are out to us again. Give us concrete evidences that those Inmates which will be pardoned by kiir killed Equatorians, none. Kiir is doing his constitution right as the head of the state. You may not like it, that’s ok with us. No one care about your like and dislike. But one big you have to live with it, Kiir is your president, whether you are in South Sudan or US.

            Jienges have no laws. How can primitive savages develop and abide by them when they cant read and understand? They simply follow "jungle laws" and learn by thorough beating. The jienge is fast to learn by beating or starving him. He will move swiftly and understand, just as like a house dog.

              jubaone,

              Those shit things called learning, degree and PhD are all shit, just papers without anything in them. I have what I need to protect South Sudan, Ak-47. Isn’t it what we used in 20 years to push away fake Arabs from South Sudan? Monkey, just sit with your shit degree in US, but don’t attempt to come back to South Sudan and say something about it.

                Dr. Garang, the ONLY DINKA had a PhD, the rest are jienges or baboons without any learning abilities and who simply carried guns and NOT allowed to think. You are one of them, At 9 or 10yrs, claimed to be in SPLA for 22 yrs. Now in 2019 from 2005=14yrs, he is (10+22+14)=46yrs. But the foolish giant ape has no arithmetic. Start from kindergarten dirty jienge thrash

                        If there is no justice in South Sudan,there will never be peace!NO justice,NO peace!Kiir can release prisoners as he wishes.One thing people must remember is, those inmates were never tried before the law of any crime they might have committed.How can the criminal himself/Kiir play the role of pardoning other criminals.We want Kiirminal(again a word from Jubaone) himself to be...
