November 24, 2021 (JUBA) – The Governor of South Sudan’s Warrap State Aleu Ayieny Aleu has sacked his Trade Minister, Anthony Jong Deng Jong.
Aleu, in a decree issued on Monday, named Amiir Amet Kuol as Deng’s successor.
Kuol served as the deputy chairperson of the ruling party (SPLM) for Warrap state.
The governor, in a separate decree Sudan Tribune obtained, sacked the Gogrial East County commissioner, Ayom Bul and replaced him with Maluach Lueth.
The state Information minister, Riing Deng Ading described the new changes as “normal” and a prerogative of the state governor as enshrined in the constitution.
