JUBA, 25 July 2013 [Gurtong]–Deng Athuai, the Chairperson of the South Sudan Civil Society Alliance spoke to Gurtong and said that the activists have welcomed the changes in the government by the President but are still concern on how the new leadership upcoming will look like.

“We are happy about the decision that is being taken by the President. It is a good decision. What we are now waiting now is the new faces,” Deng told Gurtong yesterday in an interview.

“We want to advise our President that that thank you for the change but we need you to look better this time and that not to repeat the old faces,” Deng said.

He said South Sudan needs changes in health, education, generally basic services and the new leadership coming should be of people who are not among those involved in corruption in the government that has affected the delivery of services.

On Tuesday the South Sudanese President Salva Kiir has sacked his Vice, entire cabinet and reduced the cabinet to only nineteen ministries from twenty nine. Kiir is yet to announce another lean government.

South Sudanese commentators have also remained yet concern on how the government should look like.

Ateny Wek Ateny is one popular known opinion writers with the Citizen News paper and in today’s commentary he asked; “The President dismisses his VP and the cabinet – but will he form the right government?”

William Sunday D. Tor is also another opinion writer. In his commentary today in the Citizen he says, the government which our people want should have quality and experienced personnel.
