Juba City Council locks doors of closed shops
The Juba City Council is reportedly locking and marking doors of shops that remained closed today.
“Shops along Gudele Road that remained closed today are being locked and marked by City Council,” reads a message seen by Talk of Juba.
The Juba City Council adds their own padlock to the existing locks of the business owners.
Yesterday, government spokesman, Michael Makuei Lueth said they will investigate and question individuals who shall not operate their businesses on Monday, 30th August, a day on which the People’s Coalition for Civil Action had announced they would stage a demonstration protesting poor governance in the country.
However, several businesses remained closed and organisations asked employees to stay home. Schools also registered the lowest attendance ever. In one school visited by Talk of Juba, less than 50 pupils out a more than 1,000 population reported for classes.
