GOSS Corruption: Minister Awut Deng stops recruitment of diplomats
BY: David Joseph Lomoro, JUBAs
Southern Sudan should appreciate Minister Madam Awut Deng for the initiative of reform.
In fact, hearing that the Minister of Public Service and Labor has stopped the Ministry of Regional Cooperation from deploying 28 diplomats without proper recruitment from Public Services is indeed the best way of stopping nepotism and corruption in the GOSS.
According to Public Service reform rules, no Ministry should hire people without the approval from the Public Service recruitment committee due to the fact that Ministries are hiring their relatives without qualifications.
For example, the Ministry of Regional Cooperation have done by recruiting people without waiting for Public Service recruitment committee, who are assigned to screen the applications of those who have applied to the Ministry of Regional Cooperation. The Ministry just went and deployed people as diplomats without even obtaining the Public Services grades.
Therefore, many people are surprise to learn that Lt. Gen. Oyai Deng had a hand on this matter, we thought that Gen. Deng would change the corruption of recruitment of GOSS diplomats from Ministry of Regional Cooperation, although 16 of out of 28 diplomats are from the Minister's tribe, but we need them to go through the right recruitment process.
As a matter of fact, this problem of recruitment is going to look like what the Ministry of Legal Affairs and Constitutional Development have done by recruiting people without the knowledge of Public Services and send their names to the Ministry of Finance for payment without the right procedures.
So the people of
Southern Sudan will not be happy to see that the same thing happening again in the Ministry of Regional Cooperation. Therefore, it's the duty of Public Services to recruit people according to their areas of specialization and qualification.
In fact, the Ministry of Regional Cooperation should just deploy those who have been in the Ministry as the rule for conducting deployment for diplomats, instead of deploying people who have just been recruited.
Therefore, it's the duty of the Ministry of Public Services to stop the Ministry of Regional Cooperation to do these practices of corruption and nepotism.
If these practices are going without check, then the people of
Southern Sudan should not expect the Government of Southern Sudan and the SPLM Presidential candidate Salva Kirr Mayardit to be able to fight corruption and tribalism in our institutions.
