South Sudan President, Salva Kiir has banned anyone from singing the national anthem unless he is present.
Salva Kiir through the Information Minister, Michael Makuei, said:
“The national anthem is only meant for the president, in a function only attended by the president, not for everybody.
We are seeing now even a minister, undersecretary, even governor or state minister, whenever there is a function, the national anthem is sung.”
He added the national anthem will only be sung in Kiir’s absence if its in schools where children are taught the anthem.
