Social media reports indicate that H.E Kiir the president of the rephblic has been sick for a few days. In an explanation, Cabinet Affairs minister, Martin Elia Lomuro advised the public to ignore “hateful rumours coming from critics abroad and on social media” against the South Sudanese leader.
The cabinet minister said “People should not listen to lies on social media and those spreading hate in the diaspora. I have been with His Excellency the president and I can assure you he is fine, healthy, and working now as I speak to you. His voice has improved and there is no problem with it,” explained the minister.
South Sudan’s government continues to refute claims that President Salva Kiir was unwell, saying the latter is “in good health”.
