JUBA – Minister of information, Michael Makuei Lueth lashed out at the Opposition leader Dr Lam Akol for what he called as the opposition chief’s lukewarm support for “his Southern brothers cause”
Makuei called a meeting yesterday to brief the media on the upcoming IGAD peace talks. The minister also took the tirade against Lam for the warnings the opposition leader recently issued on the Kiir regime’s hostility towards the West, particulary the troika countries.

“Why angry at the west? what did they do? the crisis was a result of the leadership making. I don’t know the reason why the government should take the initiative and campaign against the west for. They should look internally rather than exteranlly. They should be careful and learn from the previous regimes” Akol recently lamented.

Makuei however wasn’t happy with the warning. He called Dr Lam unpatriotic and having the mindset “of those who want to take the country to be governed by the west”

“Is he a leader for South Sudanese really? Is he capable of leading South Sudan? and is he a genuine South Sudanese or even an African? because he should not be scared of calling spade a spade. We know what he is referring our country to. Look he is warning us saying the president is threatening the world. He is saying don’t touch the western world because they are our lords. what is he talking about? why don’t we touch them?” Makuei said.
