The former area Member of Parliament for Rumbek East, Dharuai Mabor Teny has appealed to President Salva Kiir Mayardit to revoke an order by his party effecting his removal as the area Member of Parliament on Wednesday evening. 

Mabor said his being relieved from the position was surprising because he was replaced by someone who was not from his political party.

“To my surprise, I have been necklaced by the team which has advised him [the President] to do so and I call upon the President to revoke it. I am still waiting [to know] if the President realized later so that he revokes the decree,” Mabor told City Review in a telephone interview.

“According to the decree that read was out on the national broadcast television,  no charges were made against me. I have just been removed and replaced without charges,” he added.

Mabor said he was part of Other Political Parties (OPP) representing and he represented the National Agenda Group and Democratic Change which also comprises 11 political parties. Nine parties  of national unity were part of the coalition that has been  participating

all over the agreement since 2016 up to date of his relived.

He revealed that he was appointed to National Assembly on National Agenda group of parties’ ticket, however, the President’s decree could not mention the reason for his sacking.

In July, President Kiir revoked the appointment of Henry Stephen Danga, as a member of Revitalised Transitional National Legislative Assembly (R-TNLA) representing Central Equatoria State.

Anita Morsan and John Madeng Chan of Eastern Equatoria and Jonglei states were appointed to the assembly.

The changes made by President Kiir, revoking and reappointing members of Revitalised Transitional Government of National Unity (RTGoNU) to the TNLA, mostly affect Kiir’s ruling party, SPLM.
