South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir chairman of the ruling Sudan people’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) party has said he will not step down following pressure mounting the waring groups. The president majestically said he will only leave the party’s leadership the same way Dr. John Garang left it.
The ruling SPLM party was founded by Dr. Garang who died in a plane crash in July 2005. After his untimely death at he time, Kiir was the deputy chairman and later became the head of the party, First Vice President of Sudan, and now the President of  South Sudan.
Kiir became the first president of South Sudan when the former southern region of Sudan became an independent country in July 2011.
On Wednesday, Peter Lam Both the spokesman said Kiir accused unnamed members of the ruling party of working to replace him “by all means” as party leader. He rejected the power struggle within the group and said, according to a senior member of the group who was present at the meeting, kirr reassured the people that he won’t leave the party leadership.
Kiir added that the future of SPLM is about the success of the government and the success of the government is about the conduct of the government appointees including the President. So, to be successful, we must cooperate so that we are able to deliver service which we promised our people during the war.
