His arrest is surprising since it is contrary to what President Salva Kiir told the national assembly members on Wednesday that those not yet arrested would not be pursued and they should stay calm as the government was interested in peace and harmony in South Sudan.

The government confirmed his arrest this morning in an address to a few journalists in capital Juba.

The minister of Information, Michael Makuei, says Dr Adwok is in government custody but did not give reasons why he was arrested.

Multiple sources have told us that there were intelligence reports affirming that Dr. Adwok was indeed plotting to defect to the former vice president, Dr. Riek Machar’s side and denouncing the government of Kiir which has been on tenterhooks for two weeks now.

At the start of the conflict, 10 former cabinet officials were immediately arrested following the Sunday night of December 15, incident which president Kiir describes as an attempted but foiled coup.

President Kiir accused Machar and his group of masterminding a coup; a charge the group has denied and instead accused the latter of staging the event to clamp on dissent voices.

Other former cabinet officials include; Gier Chuang Aluong (Roads and Bridges), Majak d’Agoot (Defense), Dr Cirino Hiteng (Culture, Children and sports), Deng Alor Kuor (cabinet affairs), John Luk Jok (Justice), Kosti Manibe (Finance and Economic Planning) and Madut Biar (Telecommunication and postal service) etc.
