Kiir appoints Bona Panek Biar as Managing Director of SSPDF Pension Funds
South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir Mayardit has on Wednesday evening appointed former governor of Warrap state General Bona Panek Biar as Managing Director of SSPDF Pension Funds at the ministry of defense
Panek was appointed last July as governor of Warrap state, but was removed in January by President Kiir after flare up of communal violence in the state that has largely been unstable as results of communal conflicts over cattle
He was replaced by my Aleu Anyieny Aleu who has now employed a military approach in his dealing with the conflicts
In a decree read on the state-owned South Sudan Broadcasting Corporation (SSBC) Kiir appointed the ex-governor as managing director of pension funds in the ministry of defense.
