April 3, 2017 (SSB) — President Salva Kiir has donated $10, million dollars ($10, 000, 0000) to Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidential Election in Kenya.

This breaking news is to inform the South Sudanese both in and outside the country and indeed the UN, US and EU that in March 2017, the Kenyan private presidential jet was flown to Juba and picked up Cash Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000) from the office of President Salva Kiir to finance the presidential re-election of Uhuru Kenyatta.

This sad news happened at a time when man made famine has just been declared by the international community. As we speak now, thousands and thousands of South Sudanese people are at risk dying of starvation due to a man-made famine while President Salva Kiir today donated millions of dollars to Uhuru Kenyatta re-election.

The purpose of this enormous donation is to make sure that Uhuru Kenyatta wins Kenyan election to keeps away Raila Odinga. Today, the presidential campaign team of Uhuru Kenyatta started at the airport distributing ten million dollars oil revenues from South Sudan to poor street Kenyans to vote for Uhuru Kenyatta.

President Salva Kiir fears Raila Odinga for he may set up a tribunal Court to try those who committed Juba Genocide and elsewhere in the country. Five years ago, President Salva Kiir donated $5millions to the same Kenyan man.  This is a bad attitude by this tribal leadership of Jieng council of elders and a horrendous news for the people of South Sudan.

This means that President Salva Kiir doesn’t care about the ongoing threat of famine in South Sudan. The whole world is now busy to help the victims of famine in South Sudan while President Salva Kiir is donating more than ten millions dollars to Kenyan election. What a horrible disturbing New to the people who have sense of humanity!

We are calling and appealing to the Secretary General of the United Nation to swiftly recover $10million dollars flown to Kenya today on March 30/2017 and divert those money to buy food and medicines for the South Sudanese war famine victims.

The other call is also extended to people of South Sudan to come out and launch a general popular uprising against President Salva Kiir for playing with the oil money of our country. The SPLA- IO must immediately step up to close down the operation of oil drilling in Upper Nile.

Finally, the donation of $10Million US dollars to Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidential re-election campaign in Kenya is sinful evil action of ignorance for the man (President Salva Kiir) made war famine victims across the South Sudan.

It was reported last week the five people died in Aweil, Bahr el Ghazal. If President Salva Kiir has millions of oil money, why he didn’t save the lives in Aweil his home region?
