Tomori, NCMP – A public statement was seen by NCMP released from the office of the undersecretary, Ministry of General Education and Instructions, dated 21st September 2020 in response to the demonstration of some teachers in Bor, Jonglei state.

The undersecretary stated that the IMPACT incentives paid by the European Union(EU) to teachers in Primary schools were paid twice this year in February and April across the country. 

Also, the last incentives paid for ECD and secondary schools’ teachers were for April, may, and June 2019 stressing that these were paid by the government of South Sudan.

In addition, he noted that during the closure of schools, due to the COVID-19 pandemic when most employers could not afford the payment of their workers, teachers in government schools received their salaries as usual.

He however concluded that there were no teachers’ incentives sent to Jonglei state other than the one mentioned above.
