Less than 100 people have turned up in the state capital of Western Bhar el Ghazal, Wau welcoming the newly appointed Deputy governor, Hon. Angelo Taban Biego.
According to sources, the deputy governor whose party is Sudan People’s Liberation Movement or commonly known as IG (In Government) arrived today mid-morning in a motorcade in Wau, expecting to be greatly welcomed like his superior, Sarah Cleto. But there was a shock.
Less than 100 people turned up with most being children who watched from the road side.
Such scenario is feared that the SPLM is eventually losing popularity among the South Sudanese.
The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement has been the South Sudan’s ruling party since Independence which is 10 years ago. The party has also been fighting for the interest of the South Sudanese before the referendum which paved way for Independence from Sudan.
South Sudan’s political landscape is already full of terrains as new parties emerge everyday, waging oppostion against the current regime.
The ruling party is therefore likely to face it rough during the 2023 elections which will be the first ever in the Republic of South Sudan Under H.E. President Salva Kiir Mayardit as the leader of the fully independent South Sudan.
