The Speaker of TNLA Faces Uncertainty Over Serious Allegations
The Hon. Speaker of the Transitional National Legislative Assembly (TNLA), Nunu Kumba, has been hit by scandalous allegations that could put her job in jeopardy. The accusations range from money crimes to transgressions of TNLA rules governing the conduct of business.
According to a document seen by NCMP, Hon. Kumba is accused of financial offenses, including fraud, embezzlement, corruption, and money laundering. These allegations paint her as a speaker who has abused her authority and position for personal gain.
One of the allegations is that Hon. Kumba authorized a withdrawal of USD 1,594,073 and sent it to Hon. Sandra Bona Malwal without the house’s consent, with instructions to transport the funds to Nairobi. However, the National Security Service’s Financial Crime Unit later seized the funds at the Juba International Airport.
In addition, Hon. Kumba is accused of the theft of 12 million South Sudanese pounds in the names of South Sudanese legislators in the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA). The EALA has refuted these allegations.
If proven true, these accusations would constitute a blatant instance of theft and indicate that Hon. Kumba has no respect for the confidence her fellow lawmakers have in her. Moreover, she would have violated statutory obligations.
The severity of these allegations has prompted a petition to effect a vote of no confidence against Hon. Kumba. Her job as speaker of the TNLA is now in jeopardy, and the public awaits the outcome of the investigation into the allegations.
