The Mundari people of Terekeka in Central Equatoria have raised their complain about unfairness in how the rice donation is being handled in the country. Considering they are located only 75 Km from Juba, they expect to be the first to get rice donations.
The youth in Terekeka held a small meeting on Tuesday where they agreed to send their representatives to talk to president Salva Kiir so that their questions and needs are both answered and fulfilled if things are to be done fairly in the country.
They believe everyone is suffering in the country and distributing rice meant for public to specific states is just unfair of the president. Arkangelo, a young community representive who chaired the meeting said they expected to be the first to receive donations from the president because it is just a matter of few kilometres from the Capital.
‘We are suffering and our kids have little to no food yet we are ignored in the capital, this is unfair and to make it worse we haven’t been addressed when we are receiving the donations’, He said. The meeting was among the residents and it’s their hope the complaint is addressed well and soon.
The residents are set to send their representies to Juba this week to hold talks with the president. They believe they deserve to be helped out first if anything benefitting the citizens of the nation is to come out of Juba. The peaceful approach looks like it will yield them fruits. It is just a matter of crossing fingers.
The rice donations which was received from China has already made its way to Bahr-el-gazal and Terekeka is the first to raise concerns about it’s distribution. Our trusted source is keeping a close look at how the raised concerns will be addressed by the president. Meanwhile we hope other states and tribes hold their chills because it is our believe that everything is in the hand of Salva Kiir.
