President of the Republic of South Sudan H.E Salva Kiir Mayardit in a bold decision this evening announced a Republican Decree replacing the deputy governor of the restive South Sudan’s Warrap state Ateny Mayor who was appointed on the ticket of opposition.
The president this evening shocked the nation with his reshuffle of an opposition ally. Ayen is the only governor or deputy governor who was not born in the state she was serving as deputy governor. She is however a Dinka Atout politician from Lakes state, but married to former minister of humanitarian affairs Joseph Lual Acuil.
The Warrap governor is a close associate of former opposition leader and incumbent minister of humanitarian affairs Peter Mayen, with the two of them belonging to the People’s Liberal Party.
