June 12, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Speaking on multiple news outlets in South Sudan capital, Juba, Ateny Wek Ateny strongly denies the death of South Sudan’s troubled president, Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit.

“It’s the Khartoum based Arabic Daily Newspaper the Sudani and Alkarlaza that were alleging that the president was dead” The Press Secretary, Ateny Wek Ateny, told the Juba Based Miraya FM.

The Presidential Spokesman denies the widely spread allegation as a ” mere wishful thinking against the life of President Salva Kiir Mayardit”.

Ateny announces that the incumbent President Salva Kiir Mayardit is still alive and strong; alleging that the President has spent at least 9 hours yesterday in the office.

“The President is alive, the president is healthy [ …], yesterday at around six o’clock after the President stayed in the office for more than 9 hours from 9Am to 6pm, he went to another meeting” Ateny said

In spite that the president is expected to travel to Johannesburg, South Africa, where the African leaders have been meeting for the last five days, Ateny confirms that Salva Kiir spent his Friday at home, in his office.

“And even this morning majority of us who were with him we went to him in his office at home” he added.

The news of deteriorating health of President Kiir started spreading upon his return from South Africa on medical visit earlier this month.

The president has collapsed a few times in Juba, and also while on diplomatic missions in Khartoum and Nairobi, Kenya.

According to various news outlets, Salva Kiir collapsed and nose bled during the last round of peace talks in Addis Ababa in March this year.

Leaked medical reports indicate that the president suffers from a liver infection, a report that Juba is yet to admit.

Allegedly due to poor health, President Salva Kiir delegated his Defense Minister, Gen. Kuol Manyang Juuk, to regional leaders’ summit in Kampala, Uganda, last week, a mission that spiked his health concerns.

It is yet to be verified if President Salva Kiir will attend or delegate a representative to attend the 25th Summit of African Heads of states and government, which has been ongoing since Monday in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Chairman and C-in-C of the armed Opposition, Dr. Reik Machar Teny, has joined the Summit yesterday.

Juba is deeply concern that the former Vice President, Dr. Machar, was invited to attend the continental heads of states and governments’ summit.

“In actual fact we have not been informed about the invitation given to Riek Machar to attend the AU Summit in South Africa. This is for heads of states, there is no space for a rebel leader to attend it. So we have not been informed about that” Ateny Wek concludes.

Reports from Johannesburg, SA, confirms that the AU’s Twenty Seventh (27th) Ordinary Session of the Executive Council today at Sandton International Conference Center (ICC) in Johannesburg, SA, has ended successfully.

The Summit will resume its final round on Sunday 14 and Monday 15 June 2015 with focus on the Twenty Fifth (25th) Ordinary Session of the African Union.

    Riek Machar wants a democratic & free south sudan. He is not fighting to be a president. Remember, this war was imposed on him. If you were following south sudan conflict from the start, you can understand that machar is innocent. But If the majority of south sudanese vote for him, he can be a president. that time haters like you can hang them selves.


    • Deng II
      June 13, 2015 at 3:55 am

      “But If the majority of south sudanese vote for him, he can be a president”
      U hope so, but this killer will never become President. I know there will be more fighting for long time to come, unless Dr.Ebola quit too much desire to Presidency. No Dinka like him. Those with him now are an opportunistic fool who looking for highest position. No doubt Kiir is visionless and corrupts president patriot, unlike Dr.Ebola who is visionless and corrupts traitor.

    Maybe it is not true.


  7. June 12, 2015 at 9:42 pm

    The death is compulsory right which not avoidable at long. The right to rule is not limited to individual or group or groups where by the Dr Riek Machar will be successor to current president. He will transform our nation to best country by putting the system in good order forbgeneration to come. The power sharing of Igad is not help, they should give 20 % to political parties and 80% to splm where the splm share should be divided to as follow:
    1- splm of salva kiir can take 30% with position of president and Vice President
    2/ splm of Riek Machar can take 50 %! Of splm share with first Vice President and speaker.
    3- splm Of G10 can take 5 % of splm share with position of council of state chairman.
    4- the remainding 20 % of splm can be given to wounded hereo of both sides.
    This is workable solution which to be considered by the Igad plus for final solution of 30 months government.
    The armies need to be kept separated until the conducive environment of their unification is made after 18 months .

  10. June 12, 2015 at 11:22 pm

    Seems like Museveni instructed Kuol Manyang to unplugged the life support on killer Kiir Kuethpiny. The Bor “gangs three “( makuei liar, Kuol Manyang, and malak Ayuen) outsmarted the foolish majority of Gongrial or bar el ghazal boys. Time to take the lead “baba Ja”.


  11. June 13, 2015 at 12:39 am

    The Illitirate(kiir) is already dead but Ateny does not want to reveal his death to the public let his rest in hell …..Shame on you the Dictator..


  12. June 13, 2015 at 1:01 am

    Yes of course if you deny Awek Teny nobody friend for the death ,this one from God if your paper was tear by God no one can block it ok let it be but may be it will be like death of Malese Zenawe

    hello guys gen Kiir mayardiit may die, but it’s not the end of the death itself,but it will reach Dr Riek Machar and you and me, nothing to afraid of or celebrate.


  19. June 13, 2015 at 2:48 am

    I think wise Nuer would want Salva Kiir to live, for his death will wiorsen the situation which will mean chances of Riek being president will even become slimmer. Kiir had a good intention only that people including Riek Michar himself did not cooperate.

    They looted resources while talking shits about Kiir. Riek should have resigned being Vice President and then vied for presidency as he always wishes. Honestly speaking, it does not matter how bad your fart or feaces smell, you never acknowledge it. So when Riek started talking about the system he equally created, he was advocating for own fart/feaces.

    Other looters like Pagan Amum, stipudly signed oil agreement with Khartoum without any technical consultations from technocrats in the country. This is why Khartoum cheated them by making accept payment of 25$ per barrel. How and why would you fix a dollar value for something that depletes at long run? If you were wise, you should have considered percentage instead.

    It is either South Sudan politicians did understand anything in schools or that they have no any experiences in what they are claiming to know. Specifically speaking, I am really skeptical about Riek’s education. He might have lured some professor into passing his desertation/ thesis for I can never pass such kind a guy with such calibre.

    What does Riek have to show us his doctorate in strategic planning?
    Just tired of him! I am not dinkacrate or Nuercrate but I just hate stupid people who posses book learning. I lost my leaders during and shortly after the war. So I got no one to support but I give credits to Kiir for having unrelently fought till the end. But that doesn’t mean I support him in the current system. Unlike Riek who changed sides as though he posseses what could be termed as political vergina which anyone can fuck and let go.

    IGAD is made up of bunch of opportunists who want to ensure that they get something out of this war. I do not trust Ethiopia, Kenya and their likes fuck ’em.

    illitracy is not the problem in south sudan, but the love for money,corruption,cattle reid,misappropriation of public funds,tribolisim and extravancy by the useless and hopeless gov’t ministers in the republic of south sudan.
    the love for vehicles and hotel accommodation.
    all these has contributed to this useless wars,wars,wars. fuck………..!

    Kiir children will get better living if Kiir doesn’t control his little mouth.Prime Minister Meles Zenawi himself was addicted.Greedy of Wealth,but in the end they can’t CHEW them ones.

    Riek will die first, before Salva Kiir, others think that if Kiir Die the will the will take over, but late me issue you guy’s Dr. John Garang die but we replace him with Kiir so if kiir die we can select other one.


  25. June 13, 2015 at 5:58 am

    It is not possible to deny the death of the head of state. shame on that secretary Ateny for denying the death of president and still will be announce soon.


  26. June 13, 2015 at 6:11 am

    What is the point if he dies because his government and people were celebrating at the time of his Inauguration Day and the same will happen when he dies. Dying also is good for marketing for three days mourning. Fertit/Balanda tribe do the same,they dance and drink pure Raki Liquor a lot.


  27. June 13, 2015 at 6:29 am

    it may or may not be true. when did he die?


  28. June 13, 2015 at 7:17 am

    what are you laughing for guys? Or you think it is true that Kiir has die? Though it is true or not ther will no way for stupid who is blind by both eyes, heart and mind. Do you guys think that machar will step his rough feet onto land of south sudan again? He will Never come back again, if you dream of his caming to be a leader please! Avoid that dream of yours.


  30. June 13, 2015 at 8:14 am

    If salve kiir died i think no one can over rule S.sudan like him, a killer or rebel will never be a president, kiir is voted by all s.sudanese in election so he won and came the president of S.sudan THANK U KIIR 4 EVERY THING GOD WILL HELP U


    • Truth To Truth
      June 13, 2015 at 11:18 pm

      This is sad to see how stupid we the South Sudanese are. Kiir’s name was not on the Ballot guys. We voted for the Referendum. The referendum won the vote not Kiir. The separation was what we voted in with Kiir was the representative. Otherwise he was not voted. He didn’t contest with anyone in South Sudan. So don’t even think of him as an elected president because he wasn’t.


  31. June 13, 2015 at 9:27 am

    Let him not die but drink with tensions of innoncents Nuer he murdered and betrayed to African


  32. June 13, 2015 at 9:46 am
