South Sudan’s Governor, Manytuil Conveys Empathy to Sudanese Returnees Amid a Regional Crisis
Joseph Manytuil Wejang of South Sudan paid a visit to Rotriak Payam of Rubkona County on Thursday, where a large number of Sudanese returnees who had been displaced by fighting in Khartoum, have taken refuge. Governor Manytuil’s visit was an opportunity to assess the humanitarian conditions faced by the returnees and to show solidarity with their struggles.
During the visit, Governor Manytuil promised to provide basic necessities and land allocation, with the aim of expediting the support and reintegration of the returnees. He also called on oil companies, UN agencies, international organizations, and partners to support the humanitarian situation that the Sudanese returnees are facing.
Speaking to the returnees, Governor Manytuil conveyed his personal empathy for their situation and hopes for their safety and well-being. “We understand the pain that you are going through. We will do everything we can to provide the support you need, and we ask our international partners to do the same,” he said.
This visit is part of a regional crisis in which many Sudanese are being displaced due to ongoing fighting in Sudan. With more than 25,000 South Sudanese returnees already seeking shelter in the country, it is clear that urgent action is needed from the international community to aid those affected by the ongoing conflict.
Governor Manytuil’s empathetic visit provides a beacon of hope to Sudanese returnees who have been struggling for basic necessities and living conditions.
