ABRAHAM KUANY – President Salva Kiir has sacked the Minister of Presidential Affairs Mayiik Ayii Deng and immediately replaced him Nhial Deng Nhial as his immediate successor.

In a presidential decree Tuesday night, Kiir appointed the former Minister of
Foreign Affairs, Nhial Deng Nhial who he relived in 2019 ahead of the formation of
Revitalized Transitional Government of National Unity after serving in the position
for more the a year.


Minister Nhial Deng, 68 was replaced by Awut Deng Achuil – the first woman
Minister of Foreign Affairs, who served in the Gender, Child and Social Welfare
Ministry for a number of years.
Nhial is a currently member of the ruling South Sudan Liberation Movement
(SPLM).

In a separate decree President Kiir also sacked Gabriel Bol Deng as the deputy
Executive Director of Administration and Finance in the Office of the President.
President Kiir who didn’t replace Bol Deng didn’t give reasons behind the sacking,
apart from exercising his constitutional powers.
Since Independence, President Kiir has been using his constitutional powers to
appoint and fire officials, with kick out some barely after 2-3 months after
assuming offices.

These are mainly state governors, national ministers, and other constitutional
post holders.
Last year, the former minister of Federal Affairs Dr. Richard K. Mull said the
continuous dismissal of constitutional post-holders was not bearing fruits on
ground.

“What is happening, every day, there are decrees. Governors, ministers and
commissioners dismissed, and new ones are appointed. People just continue to

exchange chairs and no development is happening and no serious planning, what
is this?” said Mulla
