Recently a senior government official, Mary Nyarieka Lorjok who is an honourable member of parliament took to social media, decrying how the situation in the country has gone crazy. She questions if a member of a parliament can be reduced to using a motorbike popularly known as ‘Pikipiki’ in Juba to get to parliament, what about ordinary civil servants?
“family and friends I have arrived safely in my Job place which is parliament using pick pickings as a member of National Legislature Assembly what about normal civil service who can not afford SSP200 on a daily basis. God help South Sudan,” Honourable MP posted.
The situation in Juba is a case of out of frying pan onto a landmine. senior govt officials are getting the bitter taste of the economic crisis.
