Michael MAKUEI LUETH

DOB: 1947

POB: Bor, South Sudan; Bor, Sudan

Michael Makuei Lueth has held the position of Minister for Information and Broadcasting since 2013 and continues to hold that position in the Revitalised Transitional Government of National Unity. He was also the public spokesman for the government delegation to the Intergovernmental Authority on Development peace talks from 2014 to 2015 and from 2016 to 2018.

Michael Makuei has obstructed, in particular through inflammatory public statements, the implementation of the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCSS) of August 2015 (replaced in September 2018 by the “Revitalised ARCSS” (R-ARCSS)), the work of the ARCSS Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC, renamed “Reconstituted JMEC” under R-ARCSS), the establishment of the ARCSS Transitional Justice Institutions (also provided for in R-ARCSS), and the operations of the United Nations’ Regional Protection Force.

In addition, Michael Makuei is involved in the systematic curtailment of political and democratic space and in the repression of the media, which hinder democratisation and sustainable peace in South Sudan, including through regular threats against journalists and support to media censorship.

Therefore, Michael Makuei has been obstructing the political process in South Sudan and is responsible for serious violations of human rights, in particular freedom of expression.
