By No. 1 Citizen Daily Newspaper


Members of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) from the Greater Equatoria Region are converging in Juba to endorse Salva Kiir Mayardit as their presidential candidate.

This will be the second such SPLM endorsement event, following a similar rally held in the Bahr el Ghazal region last year.

Delegates from across Equatoria, including the states of Western Equatoria, Eastern Equatoria, and Yei River County, are making their way to the capital ahead of the scheduled event on Saturday, May 25th.

In Juba, it’s impossible to miss seeing one dressed in the iconic red T-shirt and cap representing the SPLM on every street corner.

The atmosphere around the Dr. John Garang Mausoleum is lively as preparations for the rally are in full swing.

In Juba, one would not pass any corner without sighting a man dressed in the symbolic SPLM’s red T-shirt and the cap. The mood around the venue, Dr. John Garang Mausoleum is jolly as preparations are in advanced stages for the rally.

In Western Equatoria, the state party committee has requested that all SPLM leadership, including county chairpersons, caucuses, league representatives, and general members, be present in Juba by the evening of May 24th.

Delegates from far-flung counties such as Tambura, Nzara, Yambio, and Maridi began their journeys on Thursday, May 23rd, in order to arrive on time.

The Western Equatoria State SPLM leadership in Juba will be on hand to receive and accommodate the delegates. Drivers have been instructed to adhere to speed limits and avoid speeding while transporting the delegates.

The endorsement event is scheduled to kick off at 8:00 am on May 25th at the Dr. John Garang Mausoleum.

Anna Tunna Richard, the SPLM Assistant Secretary for Information, Culture and Communication in Western Equatoria, urged all concerned parties to be prepared for the upcoming event.

Meanwhile, delegates from Eastern Equatoria State have also conducted a pre-endorsement rally ahead of the Juba event and are now making their way to the capital as well.
