MP calls for Yei roads re-opening
A Member of Parliament representing Morobo County in Yei River state legislative assembly has called on the state government to open roads to enable them reach their constituencies and talk to the people about peace.
Maka Mustafa says they are unable to visit their people because the roads linking Yei to rural areas remains closed, saying if the roads were opened, they would go to their constituencies and update the people about the implementation of the peace.
Mustafa urged the state government to silence guns so that people can carry out their normal activities.
Since the conflict broke out in July, 2016, most parts of Yei River state has remained inaccessible with Members of Parliament and the executive finding it difficult to reach their constituencies.
Most government officials are all living within Yei town and others have since refused to leave Juba despite several warnings by David Moses Lokonga, the state governor.
The Member of Parliament made the statement at St. Barnabas Church during the memorial prayer of late David Awongo Moses and Reverend Isaiah.
Yei is one of the states that has been terribly hit by the conflict and humanitarian agencies find it a great challenge in rendering services to the people due to its inaccessibility.
