August 1, 2016 (SSB) — There is much celebration of disappearing of former First Vice President Riek Machar Teny from Juba . There is also much celebration about the nomination of Gen Taban Deng Gai as the Chairman and Commander in Chief of SPLM /SPLA IO and his appointment to replace Riek Machar as the First Vice President according to the Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (ACRSS).

The celebrations would be short- lived unless otherwise Gen Taban does 3 precautionary measures to avoid Riek disrupting the whole peaceful political process, which is widely believed to move the country forward from political turmoil

Gen Taban Deng should not celebrate until October 2016 because Riek Machar is working around the clock to find his way out of the bushes around four states of Yei River, Amadi, Maridi and Ghudue. On the other hand , Riek’s  right hand men , who are James Dak , his spokesman , Mabior Garang  , Minister of Water , Peter Aduok , Minster for Hiher Education  are doing everything possible to get  him out of the bush.
