Kampala/Juba, June 1, 2018 (SSNA) — South Sudan’s defense minister, Kuol Manyang Juuk, invests heavily in Ugandan real estate, buying luxurious mansions, towers, and huge land for further development, a document leaked to South Sudan News Agency (SSNA) shows.
The SSNA has received from a group which calls itself “Youths for Liberation of South Sudan from Juba Murderous Regime (YLSSJMR).” The group claims in the document that they have launched “an unprecedented investigation in the East African region” against all top South Sudanese government officials and warns of “more serious findings” to come.
“We are tired of leaders who created a fake coup in 2013 so that they can loot our national wealth. We have launched an unprecedented investigation in the entire East African region against all South Sudan’s government officials,” the letter reads in parts.
“Defense minister Kuol Manyang Juuk is among the top ten. There are more serious findings to come, so be prepared, the group warned.
“This investigation is not only to show why South Sudanese leaders prefer the current sad situation in our country over peace but to continue looting in total disregard of humanity, the text further explained.
In the document, the group claims its leadership will be working with the South Sudan News Agency and other local media outlets to express their views and that its leaders will soon be in contact with the SSNA. The SSNA cannot independently verify the authenticity of the claim.
The South Sudan News Agency understands that most of Kuol Manyang and other government officials’ expensive mansions are in and around Kampala’s hill suburb, Nakasero.
Most South Sudanese believe that South Sudan’s government officials have looted the young nation wealth and use the stolen money to buy expensive mansions in Uganda and Kenya. Some officials are believed to have also bought mansions in Rwanda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Sudan, among others.
