Kiir to replace Jonglei Governor, shift him to diplomatic mission
South Sudan’s President Salva is planning to replace Jonglei state Governor, Denay Jock Chagor, and assign him to a diplomatic mission, according to highly-placed sources in the Office of the President.
“The President is working to replace the Governor of Jonglei State, Denay Jock Chagor – he’s flexible and he can do a lot if he is given a diplomatic post,” the source revealed.
Chagor was appointed last year in line with the implementation of the Peace Agreement following his nomination by the South Sudan Opposition Alliance (SSOA), a signatory to the R-ARCSS.
Since assuming the position of Governor of Jonglei State in July 2020, Shagor has been entrusted with diplomatic duties in the region.
