Lakes State’s governor has directed new ministers and commissioners to promote peace.
General Rin Tueny Mabor, the governor of Lakes State, advised authorities in Rumbek on Monday to promote peace and assure service delivery at the swearing-in ceremony of new state ministries, county commissioners, a legal adviser, and the deputy chairman of the state Employees Justice Chamber.
President Salva Kiir fired Sebit Magok, the Lakes State legal adviser, local government minister Benjamin Makuer Mabor, lands minister Majur Mayuom, labor minister Deborah Akec Kuocnin, and education minister Kongor Deng Kongor in February.
Others dismissed from office include Rumbek Central County Commissioner Kaman Matur Ajac, Rumbek East County Commissioner Mapuor Malek Malual, Yirol East County Commissioner Johnson Malual Achiek, Rumbek North County Commissioner Arop Kumbai, and Marko Tong Aliet, deputy head of the Employees Justice Chamber.
Benjamin Makuer Mabor, legal adviser, Chol Kuotwel Manhom, local government minister, Mawet Manuer Kok, lands minister, Jok Ayom Majak, labor minister, and Nelson Makoi Makur, education minister, are the replacements for the dismissed officials who took the oath of office on Monday.
Dut Manak is the new commissioner for Rumbek Central County, Mading Gaak is the new commissioner for Rumbek East County, Manyang Luk Lueth is the new commissioner for Yirol East County, and Isaac Mayek Noi is the new commissioner for Rumbek North County.
Mapuor Malek Malual was sworn in as the state Employees Justice Chamber’s deputy chairman.
Governor Tueny spoke immediately after the newly appointed officials were sworn in, urging them to promote peace, embrace good government and democracy via law enforcement, and provide basic services to Lakes State residents.
“For excellent government, you should uphold the rule of law and promote democracy.” Our state policy also aims to safeguard citizens and their belongings. This is something we need to improve on.
“Development will follow if we preserve security and stability,” Governor Tueny remarked. “And, for everyone’s food security, development begins with agriculture.” Health and education would naturally follow if there is food security.”
“Now that you have been sworn in, you have the ability to carry out these goals for the benefit of our innocent people,” he said. I warn you against misusing your position of authority.”
Meanwhile, Ayen Meen Ador, the acting speaker of the Lakes State legislature, called for collaboration between the two branches of government to promote and preserve peace and security in the state.
“The administration, judiciary, and legislature are the three pillars of governance, and they should work together,” she remarked.
Chol Kuotwel Manhom, the state minister of local government and law enforcement agencies, committed to cooperate with the governor and other authorities for the welfare of the state’s citizens.
Minister Kuotwel said, “We will work freely and prudently with everyone in the state so that our people learn how to handle their own issues and create their own future.”
“Protecting the lives and property of our people is not a choice; it is a necessity, and we all bear this obligation as sons and daughters of our state.”
