The Yirol’s breadwinner is on toss looking for a political link he lost in between defections.
The former Ambassador of South Sudan to Russia and Ex Legal Advisor to H.E. President Salva Kiir Mayardit, seems to be in deep quest for a political post.
Earlier this year or so, just before the appointment of governors, Telar Ring Deng defected to Dr. Riek Machar’s political wing; SPLM-IO in a move that saw many of his fellow politicians mocked him. Ordinary citizens had it that he was hunting for a position in the then to be formed Revitalized Transitional Government of National Unity (RTGoNU) but he was doing it in the last minutes.
What went wrong is something Telar himself have a better knowledge of. The degree of surprise however remains concrete among the politically active individuals of the society.
Telar defected to the IG again and last week, he made headlines for an absurd request.
According to reports, Telar asked President Kiir to reinstate him back as a legal advisor.
This was during a meeting with Lakes State Youths last week in Juba where he briefed them about a couple of things.
The chances of the former government official landing a political post are both quite unpredictable and predictable, giving that the president has always and at most of the times recalled his once ally to be part of his government again. So the lingering string is that he could be appointed and he could not be appointed as well.
As for now, the man is believed to be spreading networks and with Lakes State on his back, the chances are 50-50 but it will be until he finds the missing link.
