Governor Denay Jok calls for humanitarian organizations and aid workers to assist Jonglei | RB

The governor of Jonglei State Hon. Denay Jok has pleaded with humanitarian agencies to help tackle the devastative floods that have ravaged Bor Town for weeks. Though, the news only surfaced to the greater extent after the residents were seen rebuilding or rather repairing the dyke, there have been floods for nearly 4 months in the area.

This resulted due to heavy rains and the River Nile’s overflowing banks. Meanwhile in the Lake Victoria, the water volume has risen which is of course part of the flooding that is currently affecting the South Sudan’s marshland (The Sudd)

While talking to South Sudan Broadcasting Corporation (SSBC) today, the governor said,

“Today I want to call all the humanitarians organizations and all the aid workers, and all the government institutions of the Republic of South Sudan to put attention on the great state of Jonglei.”

The governor has also added that the current security situation between Jonglei and Greater Pibor is not favorable.

“As we speaks, the security situation between Jonglei and Greater Pibor is in a bad situation. I am calling all the relevant authorities to give great attention to make sure that something is done.”
