President Salva Kiir 

South Sudan's President, Salva Kiir Mayardit, has instructed immediate repairs for Juba City's main roads. Finance Minister Bak Barnaba announced on Wednesday that the work on the city's worn-out roads would start right away.

Minister Barnaba made the announcement after meeting with Central Equatoria State Governor Emmanuel Adil Anthony, Central Bank Governor Dr. James Alic Garang, Roads and Bridges Minister Simon Mijok Mijak, Special Presidential Advisor Benjamin Bol Mel, and the Central Equatoria State Cabinet at the State Secretariat.

The proposed works involve renovating, rehabilitating, and constructing all essential roads within the city, explained the minister. "We have received instructions from His Excellency the President, along with the authorities and the Government of Central Equatoria State, to collaborate and ensure the internal roads of Juba City are renovated, rehabilitated, constructed, and organized," Barnaba stated.

"It has been a long-term project, but we are starting this without full capacity under the President's guidance. We will launch the rehabilitation and construction of new roads within Juba City from now on," he added.

Emmanuel Adil Anthony, Central Equatoria State Governor, urged city residents encroaching on road reserves to dismantle their structures within 72 hours. "As we implement this project, anyone who has built their house in a road reserve, you are given 72 hours to start removing those structures. Committees have been formed and instructed to begin demolitions," he emphasized.

The governor noted the deliberate encroachment on roads and the creation of markets on them, calling it unacceptable. He highlighted designated areas for markets and announced plans to clean up the city. Governor Adil urged residents to stop careless waste disposal, emphasizing that waste should only be disposed of at designated locations and garbage collection points directed by the city council authorities.
