JUBA — The suspended Western Equatoria state minister of housing, land and public utilities Peter Simon Sarawasi has threatened to sue Governor Alfred Futuyo for ‘baselessly’ accusing him of public property theft.
On Thursday, Futuyo issued a reply gubernatorial order suspending Sawarasi for allegedly selling land and properties belonging to his ministry.
But in a statement, Sarawasi denied the allegations and threatened to take legal action against the governor demanding that the governor makes basis for his accusations.
“I demand my rights, and I demand an investigation because they are baseless accusations, so I will take legal actions, and I demand that the governor be summoned to clarify these accusations and hear from him these allegations and to present pieces of evidence because the accused is said to be innocent until proven guilty,” the state minister said.
“So, we will take legal procedures to claim my rights. The party will demand its right, but I will demand my rights against these baseless and false accusations.”
