Juba, March 19, 2018 (SSNA) — South Sudan’s information minister, Michael Makuey Lueth, has lashed out at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), saying the world body has violated the sovereignty of the war-ravaged nation.

The protest came a few days after the UNSC voted unanimously to extend UN mission in South Sudan, demanded an end to the war, and threatened to impose an arms embargo on the young nation. The UN said it will also impose targeted sanctions against those who impede the peace process, according to the resolution

Michael declared during an interview with The East African (Nairobi) that his government was not consulted on the matter and calls UN action “automatic renewal.”

“Well, that decision was uncalled for. It was a decision imposed upon the government of the Republic of South Sudan. We don’t know why this automatic renewal without consulting the government of South Sudan,” he said.

Michael, who has been sanctioned by the United States and the European Union (EU), suggested that UN peacekeepers should leave the country since Juba was not allowed to be part of the renewal process.

  • Makuei is just a cattle camp idiot, a disgrace to the country and an embarrassment to the president. But the question is why doesn’t he get fired? Does he truly represent government official position?
