African Resources Corporation has allegedly compensated the families of its 2 staff that lost their lives in an accident on 15th April, along Juba-Bor road.
According to the top source inside the construction company, each person was compensated with 12.5 millions South Sudanese pounds.
He said that the compensation was in line with the Dinka customary laws where a person is compensated with 51 cows.
“We paid 12.5m pounds each as a compensation for the victims to the families. The family of the lady got 25M because she was pregnant at the time”, the top source.
On 15th April evening, ARC 2 staff members, John Achiek- camp 2 manager and Awak Ajang- camp 3, cooks were involved in a nasty accident that took their lives instantly.
The driver of the pick up they were using jumped into a truck along Juba-Bor road. He remained the only survivor of the deadly accident.
After the incident, ARC and Government alike, have continued to warn Juba-Bor highway users to slow slow down while on the road because of the increased number of accidents since its construction.
