The senior government official said those involved in transfers must declare the transactions and that all transactions must be carried out through banking system.

“All transfers into South Sudan should be announced as soon as transfers are done. We want all transfers to be declared,” he said.

“There must be declaration to that effect and Ithe money must come in through banking system, not outside the banking system be it at the borders or the airports, we are instructing all security agencies not to allow any amount beyond this unless it is declared or it is for government purposes not individual purposes,” he further added.
