South Sudan Defends Removal of Over 100 Senior Military Officers From Active …
Juba — South Sudan on Sunday defended its decision to remove 118 senior military officers from active military service and place them on reserve docket, a move seen as an attempt to transform the security sector, according to its minister of …

September 21, 2012 (WAU) – South Sudan’s security agents have arrested four people in Northern Bahr el Ghazal, generating political tension, officials told Sudan Tribune on Friday.
Santino Mou Akot, a local administrative officer is said to have been arrested with three others in Aweil, the state capital.
An immediate family member said Akot has been behind bars for the last four days.
State authorities have not explained the arrest an anonymous family member told Sudan Tribune.
Security sources working in the prison told Sudan Tribune that the arrests were made due to their criticism of individuals in the state administration.
Akot’s wife said on Thursday she spent three days wondering about the whereabouts of her husband before resorting to touring the detention centres in the area and finding him in a building previously used by the elections commission.
“He has not eaten since he was arrested on Tuesday evening. He has not even been allowed to change his clothes for the last three days. I went yesterday and asked whether I could be allowed to talk to him but the guards refused my request. They also did not accept that I bring him food though he really looks hungry, very weak indeed,” she explained.
She said she has heard from friends of her husband that a letter ordering his arrest was sent from Juba. “They say the letter to arrest him and other people was brought from Juba. He is now arrested with fourteen people. I do not know whether they are people with whom they are accused or people he found there,” she said.
A legislator who asked for anonymity told Sudan Tribune on Friday that charges brought against Akot were just political concoctions motivated by a need to silence him as a political opponent to other politicians.
September 15, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — Sudan has urged UN chief to press South Sudanese government to cease its support to the rebel Sudan people’s Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N) stressing such links hamper the ongoing efforts to settle the unresolved issues.
Ambassador Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman, Permanent Representative of Sudan to the United Nations met on Friday 14 September with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to brief him on the latest developments on the ongoing talks with South Sudan as the UN Security Council prepare to discuss the issue on 22 September.
The parties made progress on the different files except the border demarcation and the disputed areas while the mediation plans to hold a presidential summit on Abyei between Omer Al-Bashir and Salva Kiir on 21 September.
The parallel process with the SPLM-N, on the other hand, is stalled as the parties trade accusations of delay of humanitarian relief, plans to topple the regime with the support of South Sudan and Darfur rebels.
Daffa-Alla said he urged Ban Ki-moon to put pressure on Juba government to disengage politically and militarily with the Sudanese rebel group which fights the government in South Kordofan and Blue Nile. He stressed that such relation breaches the rules of international law.
According to SUNA, the Sudanese diplomat told the UN chief that Khartoum would not hold direct talks with the rebel group until the latter formally disengage politically and militarily with the newly independent South Sudan.
The two parties hold indirect humanitarian and political talks as they meet the mediation separately.
Sudan says the two former divisions of the SPLA in Blue Nile and South Kordofan are still receiving they salaries, weapons and ammunition from Juba. It further says the leaders of the Sudanese rebellion are instructed by the SPLM leader and South Sudan President Salva Kiir.
Juba and SPLM-N denied the accusations. Following the referendum on self determination of January 2011, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) in the north Sudan established an independent structure as their comrades in South Sudan were preparing to proclaim their independent state in July 2011.
But Khartoum speaks about disengagement to highlight the close relations and the continued support they receive from the SPLM in Juba which is the ruling party.
South Sudanese top negotiator Pagan Amum arrived in Addis Ababa after a long stay in Washington for medical reasons.
Also, Princeton Lyman, US envoy for Sudan and South Sudan arrived to the Ethiopian capital where he met with the chief mediator, Thabo Mbeki to discuss the recent development on the talks.
Daffa-Alla told Ki-moon that the Sudanese delegation was keen to be in Addis on the date fixed by the mediation while the rebels belatedly arrived to Addis Ababa and left two days later to Washington obstructing the talks.
SPLM-N leadership is in a visit to the United States for talks with the American officials and to seek the support of members of Congress and civil society groups as the campaign for US presidential election has already started.

There is no smoke without fire? What prompted such a stern warning?
CONGRATULATORY MESSAGE FROM NORHTERN BAHR-EL-GHAZAL STATE TO H.E. 1ST LT. GEN. SALVA KIIR MAYARDIT,
PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH SUDAN, COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF SUDAN PEOPLES’ LIBERATION ARMY,
ON THE OCCASION OF THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY OF THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH SUDAN, JULY 9, 2012.
We, the government, on behalf of the people of Northern Bahr el Ghazal State, hereby warmly congratulate Your Excellency, the President, and the People of the Republic of South Sudan for the greatest achievement of the independence of the Republic on such a day one year ago.
This is one of the greatest achievements in the history of the world in the 21st Century of the 3rd Millennium. Not many leaders and communities have achieved such a vision through a protracted struggle over the last 200 years of our self-discovery as the first indigenous inhabitants of the land of the Black People, Bilhad-el-Sudan, in the then so-called `Dark Continent’ of Africa.
Therefore, we, from Northern Bahr el Ghazal, being part of the committed communities, which brought about this independence and still continuing to defend it by all cost and by all means on the borders with our former and current enemy, are assuring you and the whole nation that we will remain a formidable dam against any foreign aggression and its malicious agenda from now to the end of the world. So help us God.
Happy Birth Day to all the peoples of South Sudan, their friends and well wishers who are celebrating the making of our history in Juba and all the other capitals of the nation.
Long live The President!
Long Live the Virgin Republic!
God Bless South Sudan!
Lt. Gen. Paul Malong Awan,
The Governor with The Government and the Patriotic People of Northern Bahr-el-Ghazal State.
Aweil, South Sudan.

17 June 2012
POSITION OF THE OPPOSITION ON THE PRESIDENT’S LETTER TO “CORRUPT” GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS
- Since it became public in early June, the letter of the President of the Republic, General Salva Kiir Mayardit, dated the 3rd of May 2012 in which he wrote to 75 current and former government officials that he accused of stealing 4 billion US dollars, has been the subject of intense debate. As the official Opposition party in the country, the SPLM-DC is duty bound to make its position on the matter clear.
- That the government that ruled South Sudan since 2005 is corrupt to the marrow is not news. We have said it loud and clear three years ago and there were muted voices here and there saying so, only to be met with strong denials by those in power. The only new thing now is that the President is trying albeit in a weak-kneed manner to pass the buck to others in his government. The whole exercise is meant to impress not South Sudanese but the nagging international community whose money that they gave generously in the mistaken hope of helping South Sudan ended up in the fat bank accounts of unscrupulous leaders of the Government in South Sudan.
- From the outset let us not be duped about the amount of the missing money. Since 2005 to date, South Sudan has received in excess of 20 billion US dollars as revenue from oil alone. This figure excludes the funds it got in terms of grants and loans in addition to its share of the national budget before secession. Since there is very little to show for in terms of services rendered to our people, where did most of that money go to?
Therefore, the figure quoted in the President’s letter is paltry, well below the actual amount embezzled.
- The tone and tenure of the President’s language in the letter is unmistakable. Says he: “an estimated $4 billion are unaccounted for, or simply put, stolen by current and former South Sudan officials or corrupt individuals with close ties to government officials”. In another paragraph he categorically puts it that: “some [former and current government officials] have purchased properties; often paid in cash” and proceeded to state that he had written 75 letters to these government officials requesting them to “return these stolen funds (full or partial)”. Despite his futile attempt to beat a hasty retreat nothing short of denying the authenticity of the letter will make people take his latest statements seriously. Since he has not done so, it is obvious from the above quotations that anybody that has received the President’s letter is not only a suspect but is heavily accused of stealing public funds with all what that entails in the legal realm.
- With that lack of doubt in the President’s mind of the crime committed, it is mind-boggling why the President rather than proceed with his water-tight case against the “looters” of public funds ends up begging them to anonymously return even part of the money stolen! If the objective was to get back the $4 billion, this partial depositing, if it were to happen, to win the President’s amnesty, would not do the trick because anything above a zero dollar is “part” of the money and qualifies the depositor to full amnesty.
- In principle, the idea of writing letters to suspected embezzlers of public funds is none of the President’s business, less so to write off stolen government funds which belong to the people of South Sudan. The President has no authority to conceal the identity of thieves and write off the stolen money. Such an action in itself runs counter to a basic principle of criminal law, the deterrent effect. No criminal would want to be discovered in the act of committing a crime. Hence, making the names of those convicted of embezzling the money of the poor South Sudanese public, the so-called shaming, is the strongest deterrent for any would-be embezzler.
- The volte-face of the President was, we understand, a result of a passionate wheeling and dealing in the circles of the ruling party as a result of the last resolution of Parliament to suspend all recipients of the President’s letter. We know that most of the 55 Ministers and Deputy Ministers in the current government of the Republic of South Sudan and other stalwarts of the SPLM are in receipt of the letter. Suspending them would mean that the government and the party would be paralyzed and tainted, the very opposite of what the President had wanted to achieve. What goes round comes round!
- In light of the above our position on the matter is as follows:
(a)- Corruption is a cancerous disease that has robbed our people of funds that would have been used to provide them with the basic services of life-saving medicines, education and decent living; compromised our image inside South Sudan and abroad and had introduced a sub-culture alien to our values. It must therefore be fought with all resolve and vigor to eradicate it.
(b)- We unreservedly support the resolution of the National Legislature on Tuesday the 13th instant that all suspected of corruption, starting with those who were served with the President’s letter, be suspended from duty and be investigated by the competent legal authorities and those found to have a case to answer for be prosecuted. One is amazed to hear a Cabinet Minister say that this resolution is not binding on the Executive branch of government!
(c)- The government of the Republic of South Sudan must show by deeds, not words, that it is committed to its own slogan of “zero-tolerance to corruption”. The people of South Sudan will only believe them if some heads start rolling, something that has not happened in the entire life of the SPLM-led government. Our people learn by example not through rhetoric.
(d)- The current debate about the corrupt elements in our midst was started by none other than the President himself. Hence, he should not be seen to waver in his resolve to take firm action against those suspected of being involved in corruption; otherwise, accusing fingers will be pointed at him.
(e)- We appeal to our people in South Sudan to keep this debate alive. This is the only way to retrieve our stolen money and stamp out corruption once and for all. Our slogans should be: “Corruptions Kills” and “No Amnesty to Thieves”.
Dr Lam Akol,
Chairman of SPLM-DC.
