Put your words into action, General Akol advised, as he ordered the dismantling of all checkpoints and barricades throughout the country.
General Akol has been advised to put his words into action, as he recently ordered the dismantling of all checkpoints and barricades throughout the country.
According to an Eye Radio report seen by NCMP, to facilitate the flow of goods and services, the Director of South Sudan Customs Services has ordered the immediate removal of all unlawful checkpoints and roadblocks across the nation, including Nesitu.
This comes after East African commercial truck drivers launched a two-week protest that concluded yesterday.
They requested the elimination of all unlawful checkpoints and roadblocks, as well as the cessation of harassment and extortion by security officers operating along the Juba-Nimule route.
Akol Ayii Madut said that unlawful roadblocks have hampered the flow of people and commodities.
General Akol mentioned in a report seen by NCMP that there is no need for roadblocks from Nimule to Wau; he further broached that from Nimule, you travel straight to where you want to go or where the goods are going.
“If you are heading to Wau, Bor town, Juba, or any other area of the nation, you must go quietly. There is already a crew organized to accompany the trucks.”
“There is no inspection of any vehicle on the road, and we are not allowing any truck to go alone in accordance with our decision. Currently, a national security general is stationed in Nesitu and will remain there.”
Gen. Akol went on to say that the newly deployed troops along the Nimule Juba route had been instructed not to demand money from passengers, particularly merchants.
