A leader of the South Sudan Opposition Alliance has travelled to Western Equatoria State to consult his ancestral gods on the slow implementation of the revitalized peace deal.
Reports of rebel leader and First Vice President Dr. Riek Machar’s unexpected and imminent return to Juba has caught many by surprise, including the President who is away touring Bahr El Ghazal. Saakam has learned that the tour is being cut short and arrangements are already in place to ensure Pres. Kiir is back in Juba before his nemesis arrives.
The Jieng Council of Elders (JCE) is recommending the creation of a specialised High Commission that will monitor, manage and sustain the state of happiness of Pres. Kiir. This comes after a recent independent study concluded that the state of the nation suffers, thousands die and many more pack their bags when Pres. Salva Kiir Mayardit is unhappy.
Two senior SPLM-IO commanders exposed earlier last week have arrived in Abba in the Democratic Republic of Congo this week to consult with multiple Congolese Juju men. The SPLM-IO governor of Yei River state businessman Major General Frank Matata and middleman Lam Gabriel said they are in Congo to get the necessary charms that will protect them from the anger of Ngundeng in light of the undercover exposé reporting by documentary team members.
The First Vice-President of South Sudan, H.E Taban Deng Gai, has reportedly applied for asylum in the United States under the grounds that he has reasonable fear for his life, his job and his livelihood.

With the 73rd General Assembly of the UN scheduled to kick off in New York, the Deputy Head of Mission at the South Sudan embassy in Washington, Ambassador Gordon Buay, has announced that the South Sudan delegation headed by First Vice President Taban Deng will not attend the UN meeting unless the Nuer language is added to the list of UN languages and a team of qualified Nuer language translators is hired to translate the sessions to the delegates.
