SPLM Ministers walk out of South Kordofan Cabinet meeting

(Ajras Al-Hurriah)

SPLM Ministers in Southern Kordofan state have walked out of the State Ministers meeting to protest the State Governor Omer Sulaiman’s decision to sack Finance Minister Ahmed Abdul Rahman (SPLM).

An SPLM official in the State Arno Antiklo said the Governor of Southern Kordofan did not carry out FVP Kiir’s directive to reinstate the dismissed Minister. The SPLM Ministers who withdrew constitute 45% of the State Cabinet.

Note from N. op 't Ende: the original article in the MMR talked of West Kordofan, but as there is no West Kordofan State and the issue plays in South Kordofan, I believe it is safe to assume South Kordofan was meant here.
