Michael Losike Lokerui, a member representing Eastern Equatoria State at the National Council of State in Juba had written a letter accusing the governor together with two other county commissioners and his wife Samira Louis Lojore of training militias to destabilize the state.

The governor declared to the public that he will also resign from his position as the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) chairperson in the state if found guilty.

 He urged the citizens to remain calm at this time as the committee investigates about the allegations.

 “I want to tell you my people, if am proved guilty by a fact-finding committee on allegations against me by one of our fellow state citizens by name Michael Losike Lokerui …I will resign immediately to save the justice,” he said.

The governor is also accused of wrongfully dismissing two state Members of Parliament.

He said that he cannot betray the people who entrusted him in the office by participating in the alleged activities.

He vowed to works tirelessly to eliminate any activities related to the above accusations especially that of hosting militias in the state.
