South Sudan's President Salva Kiir has banned anyone from singing the national anthem unless he is present, a minister said Monday.
Information Minister Michael Makuei told AFP that different leaders and institutions were playing the anthem at whim, which was an abuse of the national tune, written shortly before independence in 2011.
"For the information of everybody the national anthem is only meant for the president, in a function only attended by the president, not for everybody," Makuei said.
"We are seeing now even a minister, undersecretary, even governor or state minister, whenever there is a function the national anthem is sung."
He said Kiir's order was passed during a cabinet meeting on Friday.

This makes sense. Of course people don't seem to get the message. What do you think would happen if Kiunjuri demanded that the National anthem be sung before and after he spoke? Do you think Kitaeleweka will be happY

Bright minds will do it and when questioned they will simply claim they recited it as a prayer
