Last year, it was reported that Kur Ajiing, a prominent businessman, had fought with the former Minister of Finance, Garang Mabordit, over crude oil tanks that were sold for millions of dollars. Now, sources close to Ajiing have revealed that he recently jetted off to Dubai to receive another million dollars from one tank of crude oil which was sold with 70 million dollars
This latest revelation has sent shockwaves through the country, as it highlights the extent of corruption in the oil sector. Ajiing’s actions have been condemned by many, who see them as a blatant abuse of power and a betrayal of the people of South Sudan.
The journalist’s investigation has shed light on the murky world of oil deals in the country, and has raised questions about the government’s role in regulating the sector. Many are calling for greater transparency and accountability in the oil industry, and for those responsible for corruption to be held to account.
As the story continues to unfold, it is clear that the impact of corruption in the oil sector is not just financial, but also has wider implications for the country’s political stability and economic development. The journalist’s exposé serves as a reminder of the importance of investigative journalism in holding those in power to account and shining a light on corruption wherever it may be found.
The corruption scandal in the oil sector of South Sudan continues to deepen, with Kur Ajiing and Bol Mel, two of the country’s most prominent businessmen, being accused of milking the country of its resources. The United States has singled out Ajiing and Mel as the most corrupt individuals in the country, and their actions have been blamed for exacerbating the ongoing conflict and instability in the region.
