The Wildlife Authority is in the process of reviving the Radom National Park which could be the 6th nation park in the country when approved.
Speaking to Juba Monitor during an interview, the Assistant Director General in the Ministry of Wildlife Conservation and Tourism Maj. Gen. Khamis Adieng Ding said that they wanted to revive the Radom National Park because the area is located in South Sudan.
“Radom National Park is one of the parks that lies within the geographical area of the present South Sudan which is South of Darfur in greater Bahr El Ghazal in an area called Kafia Kingi,” said Maj. Gen. Adieng.
He further added that they have presented the issue to the government during the workshop held by the Ministry at Nyakuron Cultural center last month.
The Assistant Director said Radom National Park was upgraded by the then Sudan Government to a national park in 1980 when Sudan was still one country.
He stated that the Park was documented as an important site for having famous species like curlicues monkeys, forest elephants among others.
