SOUTH SUDAN: FORMER MINISTER FORMS NEW POLITICAL PARTY
JUBA, --Former South Sudan agriculture minister Lam Akol has formed a new political party, which he says will inject some ideology into the country's politics.
In an exclusive interview with The EastAfrican in Nairobi, Akol said his new party, the National Democratic Movement (NDM), will fight against totalitarianism, corruption and ethnicity.
Akol, who resigned from the Transitional Government in August on the grounds that President Salva Kiir had gone against the peace agreement, said that NDM will work closely with Riek Machar and other groups to take over the government from President Kiir.
