WAU, 21 May 2012 [Gurtong]- The party’s State Secretary Kamil Wana Uraj and three assistant secretaries who were axed from the party by the SPLM Liberation Council last month have refused to vacate office.
The party‘s State Chairperson General Mark Nyipuoch Ubuong convened a meeting Monday where he urged the four officials to act as required to avoid more wrangles in the party.
Ubuong directed the new State Secretary Paulino Adam Naro and the State Deputy Chairperson Joseph Anthony Kpandu to ensure the ousted officials hand over their offices peacefully.
He at the same time directed that the party’s activities proceed as per the party’s resolutions at last month’s meeting.
He urged the ousted officials not to undermine the party but instead encouraged them to embrace dialogue and strengthen the party in the state.
The officials were dismissed from the party over what officials said were gross misconduct in contravention of the party’s constitution.
Apology and Correction
In our earlier story, we published that the SPLM Western Bahr el Ghazal State Secretary Kamil Wana Uraj and three assistant secretaries who were axed from the party by the SPLM Liberation Council last month have refused to vacate office.
We have since learnt that Mr Uraj was the first to vacate office and only the other three officials have not done so.
We take this early opportunity to sincerely apologise to Mr Uraj for the misrepresentation and any embarrassment caused to him.
