After swearing him in, Kiir went ahead and dissolved his old cabinet to form a transitional government of national unity.

Gen Yak says South Sudanese don’t deserve this fragile peace agreement that includes maintaining Kiir as the president and Riek as 1st VP yet they committed crimes since December 2013.

Yak is the top commander of political group Federal Democratic Party (FDP) armed wing, the South Sudan Armed Forces (SSAF).

He was recently in the news bickering with the party’s previous provisional chairman Gabriel Changson Chang.

General Yak was formerly a member of SPLM-IO under Machar before breaking away ahead of the signing of the Addis Ababa peace deal in August 2015.
