Kiir directs cabinet to deliberate on wetland awareness report

President Salva Kiir directed the Minister of Presidential Affairs to present the public awareness and consultation report on the Nile waters, before the Council of Ministers for deliberation.

Minister Barnaba Marial Benjamin received the document on last month’s consultation forum, which contains a number of recommendations on the issue of dredging and resumption of Jonglei Canal.

“This report provides way forward, and lessons learnt to support the R-TGONU on the contentious issues of dredging and resumption of Jonglei Canal, which are perceived to have detrimental impacts on the Sudd Wetlands, and the White Nile River and its tributaries,” reads a statement from the Office of the President.

On 9th July, President Salva Kiir ordered the suspension of all dredging-related activities until an environmental impact assessment is conducted.

The decision came after a backlash over the controversial project to dredge the Naam River and Bahr El Ghazal Basin.

The government approved the project to open water ways along the northern tributary of the Nile, in what has been presumed as a solution to three years of flood disaster in the country’s lowlands.

The issue was seen to have invoked needless assumptions, misinformation and divided the public between pro and anti dredging.

Environmental experts warn of drastic reduction in water level and destruction of the ecosystem in the sudd wetland.

However, others believe reducing a volume of water downstream to Sudan and Egypt could solve the issue of flooding in Upper Nile and Bahr El Ghazal regions.

Last month, a public awareness forum involving environmental experts, government officials and members of the public was conducted in Juba.

The forum under the theme: “No Life without Water: Develop and Manage the White Nile Water Resources and the Sudd Wetlands Sustainably” focused on scientific approach to managing the Nile water and the wetlands.

According to Kiir’s office, the report was compiled by the Secretariat and Editorial Team of the Sudd Wetlands and the White Nile Water Resources Development and Management Initiative.

The team is led by Akoc Akuei Manheim, deputized by Mr David John Kumuri.

“The Minister of Presidential Affairs Hon. Dr. Barnaba Marial Benjamin said, H. E. President Salva Kiir Mayardit has directed him to present the report to the Council of Ministers for deliberations,” reads the statement.

Jailed Rumbek teachers unable to afford a defense lawyer

The six teachers put in jail in Lakes State do not have money to hire a lawyer to defend them in court, their representative said.

This comes after State Governor Rin Tueny Mabor ordered the state minister of education to produce the teachers before a court of law in Rumbek town.

The six teachers initially detained at the Panda military barracks in Rumbek since mid-June were transferred to Rumbek Central prison last month without due court process.

Over 30 teachers from various secondary and primary schools in Rumbek were arrested after a strike. The striking teachers rejected their January and February salary arrears that did not reflect the 100 per cent increment in their salaries.

Last month, more than 30 teachers were freed, but six remained behind bars.

Speaking to Radio Tamazuj on Thursday, Adija Majoth, a representative of the jailed teachers, said police have finalized with investigations, and the imprisoned teachers are due to appear before court soon.

Majoth, however, said the teachers could not hire a legal representative over financial inability. “They don’t have a defense lawyer at the moment because the teachers do not have the financial capacity to hire a lawyer to defend them.”

Daniel Laat, the State Coordinator of the Community Empowerment for Progress Organization (CEPO), said they are contacting some people in Juba to find a legal team to defend the accused.

“These teachers have no financial capacity to afford the lawyer. They have no money, and hiring a defense lawyer is expensive. It would be good if some human rights bodies could show solidarity regarding this situation to hire a lawyer,” Laat said.

Martin Khamis, a police officer police, confirmed that the teachers’ case file had been forwarded to the Attorney General, who is expected to send the case to the court for trial.

“The case file is with the attorney general, and after the attorney finishes case studies, he would send it to the court. This is what is happening after the police investigation,” Khamis said.

Under the South Sudan constitution, any accused person has the right to defend himself or herself in person or through a lawyer of his or her own choice or to have legal aid assigned to him or her by the government where he or she cannot afford a lawyer to defend him or her in any serious offence.
