Most people have recently questioned reports that South Sudan President Salva Kiir has a home in a Mini-state House style like in Nairobi. Others have said that these reports are inaccurate and that they are meant to portray Kiir in bad light and further the narrative advanced by an expose The profiteers by Senior Kenyan investigative journalist, John Allan Namu. More of these doubts emerged on 24th October 2018 when Journalist Jeff Koinange had a one on one exclusive with South Sudan President Salva Kiir on Citizen Tv Kenya
Well while many Kenyans and African citizens might find it unbelievable, reports reaching our desk have confirmed that South Sudan President Salva Kiir has a home in Nairobi. Our suspicions have been collaborated by the Sentry report an authoritative piece of investigation.
"The Sentry is a team of policy analysts, regional experts, and financial forensic investigators that follows the money in order to create consequences for those funding and profiting from genocide or other mass atrocities in Africa, and to build leverage for peace."
Apparently reports from Wilson Airport have indicated that South Sudan President Salva Kiir regularly jets into Kenya in the pitch-black night and silently cruises across the dark and deserted streets of NAIROBI to his home in a rich upper end neighborhood.
This has been the mystery for many not believing that a President of another country can jet in and leave unnoticed leave alone have a home from which he conducts business of his country and sufficiently governs his country from.
According to the Sentry Report, Salva Kiir has a home in Nairobi rich neighborhood of Lavington. About a quarter mile after the entrance to a gated community within Lavington—one of Nairobi’s most upscale neighborhoods—is a well-guarded compound, lined with a 10-to-12-foot cinderblock fence topped with two additional feet of taut, high-voltage wiring. Just inside is a courtyard, flanked on either side by two relatively small structures that appear to be a large garage and a guest house or guard post. Just beyond the courtyard is the main home, an elegant, pale yellow, two-story villa with several balconies that appears to be well over 5,000 square feet. Behind the main house is a spacious, lush, and well-landscaped backyard with a long, brick driveway lined with finely-manicured hedges leading to the rear gate. From nearly every angle outside the compound, the house is virtually impossible to see clearly due to the high walls and numerous trees that hug the home’s perimeter. Despite the visual obstructions, Sentry report authoritatively states. And here is the picture evidence.

Salva Kiir has all if not most of his family members living outside SouthSudan while he wages war against the people of South Sudan, looting and stashing the loot in other countries like Kenya. For another president to operate like this he must have the blessings of the host country and we can sufficiently conclude that Kenyan authorities are benefiting from one way or another from this relationship given that another South Sudan General, Paul Malong is also holed up in Nairobi with a state of art security provided by Kenyan government, at least the Profiteers can reveal.
It is not that President Salva Kiir has no home in SouthSudan, he has one. But the conditions of this home has made it impossible for his family to stay there. It is a home protected like a military camp, with fighter jets on standby, tanks and even grenade launchers.

President Kiir’s ranch has also been linked to a militia responsible for some of the worst atrocities committed during the current civil war. Media reports, the United Nations, and the African Union have all alleged that the Mathiang Anyoor militia that committed the bulk of the atrocities in Juba in December 2013 trained at Kiir’s ranch in Luri, the Sentry states.

Salva Kiir has been accused of waging war in his country and being unable to stabilize the country and looting the country's oil and stashing the loot in Nairobi and Kampala. On his interview with Jeff Koinange, he dismissed these allegations and heaped blame of looting on General Malong and others who have since fled the country.
