In its Vol. 8 Issue No. 557 dated September 6, 2013 the South Sudan Daily newspaper, The Citizen quoted Manok with critical comments over decision by the national assembly that rejected the appointment of Telar Riing Deng as the Minister of Justice.

In August last month the parliament in its vetting committee rejected the approval of Tellar Ring to the position citing incompetency and other factors that do not qualify him the Ministerial position.

Manok was quoted by the Citizen describing the MPs as “crook” and “betrayers” for having refused to approve Tellar Ring to the Ministerial position.

He was also quoted describing the MPs as “greedy” and people who are “ill informed.”

Manok further called the South Sudanese President Salva Kiir to dissolve the parliament accusing that the MPs are only caring for their “interests not interests of the nation.”

The three hour heated debate came to past after Hon. Victor Omuho from Eastern Equatoria State raised a motion over Manok’s utterances which were considered by the parliament as abuses aimed at reducing the dignity of the August House.

Well received by the August House, several resolutions were drawn by the MPs even despite Manok’s apology letter been read by the Rt. Hon. Speaker Manas Magok Rundial to the parliament.

The MPs rejected other proposals raised that, Manok should be forgiven as it looks like he don’t know what he was doing.

Parliamentarians had pronounced him to face justice over his utterances.

A motion voted by the majority later on raised by Hon. Henry Odwar of Eastern Equatoria State seconded by Mach Nyipoch, the Deputy Speaker of the National Parliament has subjected Manok to be investigated by a select committee comprising of ten members each from a State.

The committee is expected to submit its findings to the parliament after seven days.

The Northern Bahr el Ghazal state’s Assembly Chief Whip, Daniel Akol Diing last week also said that the rejection was unconstitutional urging the members for real and genuine vetting when doing public affairs on the move by the national legislative assembly to reject the nominee for the national Ministry of Justice, Telar Riing Deng.
