Tragic Loss of Ph.D. Holder Sparks Urgent Debate: Are Foreign Drivers a Risk to Rural Communities?
The untimely demise of Yel Makuac, a highly educated individual holding a Ph.D., has elicited a profound sense of shock and sorrow within the Aguok-Kuei community of South Sudan. This tragic incident has sparked a widespread outcry, urging the African Road Corporation (ARC) management to withdraw foreign drivers from the area due to their apparent incapacity to safely navigate rural regions. As this incident adds to the list of potential fatalities involving foreign drivers, community members are vehemently demanding that their concerns be acknowledged and swift action be taken.
The Aguok-Kuei community finds itself in a state of dismay following news of the unfortunate incident involving a foreign driver in the employ of ARC. The loss of Yel Makuac, a highly respected individual with a Ph.D., represents a significant blow to the community. It has been reported that Mr. Makuac fell victim to a fatal accident, which occurred due to the foreign driver’s unfamiliarity with the area, resulting in the untimely demise of the scholar.
In response to this distressing event, Bol Deng Kiri, a relative of the deceased, has emphasized that the community does not hold any grievances against the operations of ARC in Aguok-Kuei. Nevertheless, Mr. Deng Kiri has called upon ARC management to withdraw foreign drivers from the region to prevent any further incidents of this nature. He stressed that the loss of such a valuable member of the Aguok-Kuei community is already one too many, and the community can no longer tolerate the potential risks posed by foreign drivers to the safety of its members.
Regrettably, this accident is not an isolated incident within the area. There is a growing concern that foreign drivers, due to their lack of familiarity with the local terrain, pose a significant threat to the lives of the Aguok-Kuei community members.
Residents have shown solidarity with the grieving family and voiced their resolute stance against any negligence or oversights on the part of the company’s foreign drivers. The community has unequivocally declared that it will no longer tolerate any compromise when it comes to the safety and well-being of its members.
