The ruling movement in South Sudan has dispensed with neighboring Sudan because it thought that its growing link with Washington will save it from internal disputes and intelligence game.

The American game began with the increase of the gap between the South Sudanese leaders.
As a result, South Sudanese President Salva Kiir sacked Vice President Riek Machar and dissolved the government Tuesday, leaving undersecretaries of various ministries to run said ministries until further notice.

Although there had been a few recent indications of internal fissures within the ruling Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement (SPLM) and the cold war between Mr. Kiir and Mr. Machar had been heating up since the spring, I don’t know that anyone had been anticipating anything this drastic.

Indeed, national and international observers expected Kiir to eventually fire Machar, but I don’t think anyone expected him to nuke his entire cabinet.
Washington and Tel Aviv believe that South Sudan, endowed with rich potentials, shouldn't be left the Southerners alone .

Some South Sudanese leaders have begun to realize that neither Israel nor US loves South Sudan for the eyes of its people.

Following the reshuffle, the South Sudanese opposition and the African Union have called for national government.

The International Republican Institute (IRI) has released a report on the second national public opinion poll about South Sudan revealing that over 52% of the citizens for the first time think that the country is moving in a wrong direction.

“The majority of the south Sudanese 52% fell that the country is heading in the wrong direction, citing: crimes and the security, food shortage, famine and poverty, destitution as key problems facing the country,” said Gabriela Serano, IRI’s Country Director at a press conference in Juba.

The poll assesses a range of subjects related to democracy and governance including; the general environment, the economy, service delivery, attitudes toward government, peace and security, attitudes towards women, constitutional Issues and perception of political parties.

Food shortage and famine remain the primary concern for citizen in their daily lives with a notable 82% of respondent saying they felt the impact of the government of South Sudan’s decision to shut down oil production, the country`s largest revenue source, from January 2012 to April 2013, following the dispute with Sudan.
