Juba, May 8, 2019 (SSNA) — The government of South Sudan and the California-based lobbying firm, Gainful Solutions, Inc, have signed a brand new contract after their two-year initial $3.7 million dollars contract was abruptly canceled, an official with South Sudan’s Embassy in Washington, DC, who prefers anonymity told the South Sudan News Agency (SSNA).

The official explained to the SSNA that controversy was too much the government to handle and that President Kiir was constantly on the phone with the Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.

“We realized after the news was leaked out that it could cause problems between South Sudanese and American governments, so we decided to the council it and then signed a new contract,” The official explains.

On April 18, South Sudan and a California-based lobbying firm called Gainful Solutions, Inc, signed an agreement worth $3.7 million dollars. The deal, according to a record obtained by the South Sudan News Agency, allows the Gainful Solutions to persuade U.S. President Donald Trump to restore economic, military, and political relations. The pact also demands that Gainful Solutions acts as a front for the government of South Sudan to make sure a hybrid court proposed under the September 208 peace agreement doesn’t get established. The deal also calls for United States oil companies to invest in South Sudan oil sector.

The new contract signed on May 3, 209 appears to have no mention of the amount South Sudan’s government paid to Gainful Solutions.

The South Sudan News Agency understands that Kiir’s ordered the conciliation of the initial deal to try to cover up the amount he paid of the recent contract.

The same source promised the SSNA that the government of South Sudan is wrong if it thinks it can hide the new amount, promising that the “amount will be discovered in fairly a short period of time.

The South Sudan News Agency was briefed by a source fully aware of the situation that the first deal ($3.7 million contract) was signed by Gordon Buay Malek on behalf of President Kiir. Gordon is currently serving as the deputy ambassador at South Sudan Embassy in Washington, DC. Gordon is known for outrageous messages including calling on South Sudan’s government to kill anyone he sees a threat or “disturbing the government of Salva Kiir.”
