BREAKING: Kiir Ejects Garang’s Son from Ministers’ Meeting

The South Sudan President Salva Kiir on Friday kicked out the son of the country’s founding leader Dr. John Garang from the Transitional Council of Ministers’ Meeting in the capital Juba.

Mr. Mabior Garang de Mabior was ordered out of the gathering which is the first of its kind since the recent formation of the unity government, hospital on allegations of dressing inappropriately.

Mabior was dressed in a black suit, thumb black shoes and a bow tie that very likely caused him troubles with the President who was chairing the meeting.

The bow tie is often used for evening dinners and parties. Mabior released a short statement after being kicked out and accused Kiir of dictatorship.

“I have just arrived home after being kicked out of the first meeting of the Council of Ministers for dressing inappropriately,” part of the statement reads.

He added, “After coming home and changing my bow tie at the advice of the First Vice President Dr. Riek Machar Teny-dhuorgon…I returned to the Council of Ministers Meeting…only to be harassed and barred from entry by Salvador Kiir’s bodyguards…they should understand that this TGONU will not be business as usual…change is here..”


In Uganda’s National Assembly the bow tie is normal and is the favorite for the Deputy Speaker of Jacob Oulanyah when chairing the house.

Mabior was appointed the Minister of Water Resources and Irrigation in the Transitional Government of National Unity. He has been the Chairman Public Relations and Publicity in the Dr. Riek Machar’s SPLA-IO movement.
