Opposition party cries foul after losing seats in states

The South Sudan National Movement for Change (SSNMC) party on Monday decried injustice being meted out by it’s partners in the South Sudan Opposition Alliance (SSOMA), after seeing it’s members ejected from several positions at the state level.

Mogga Charles, the Secretary for Foreign Affairs for the South Sudan National Movement for Change, said the blatant removal of their party members from positions in state governments, is a violation of the power-sharing agreement under the 2018 revitalized peace agreement.

“We are being threatened, blackmailed, targeted amid the unilateral removal of our party members who include our party chairperson, the secretary general and commissioner of Kapoeta South by the Vice President Hussein Abdelbagi facilitated by Joseph Bangasi Bakasoro who is the current Minister of Presidential Affairs,” Charles said during press conference in Juba.

Charles disclosed they have lost 17 positions in the state governments including the national ministry of public services and human resource development which was once occupied by Joseph Bangasi Bakasoro, their former party chairman who recently rejoined the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement party.

 “It is now three years, we are unable to regain these positions, these removal are executed without any notice and due regard to SSOA internal regulation which protects positions apportioned to individual parties,” Charles said.

He appealed to President Salva Kiir to use his prerogative to ensure justice for SSNMC.
