South Sudan’s First Lady, Mary Ayen Mayardit, over the weekend reported to Kenyan police that her son, Manut Salva Kiir, assaulted his sister while working under the influence of alcohol.

Mrs Kiir told police that Manut quarrelled with his sister Winnie Salva Kiir and injuring her in the ensuing scuffle.

Officers led by Muthangari chief inspector Hannington Kirimi swung into action, picked the 23 year-old from Ayen’s residence on Manyani East Road and put him behind bars.

Manut was charged with drunkenness and disorderliness as well as assault.

He was however, released soon afterwards.

“We decided to release him after the family informed us that they had solved the matter amicably,” the Nairobi county police commander, Benson Kibue, was quoted as saying.

According to Sudan Tribune, “This anti-social behaviour is what could have prompted the head of the world’s youngest nation to convene the meeting during which he caution all family members, wherever they resided, to refrain from habits that would attract public attention”.

“You have to understand that you would never be alone wherever you go. So be careful with whatever you do.”

“It is unfortunate that you would never be left to live like any other persons, which is act of interference with privacy and individual life,” the angry Kiir lashed out.
