Rumbek University to be opened this academic year


August 9, 2009 (RUMBEK) — A government delegation arrived to the capital of Lakes State to discuss arrangements for the opening of Rumbek University this academic year.

During a visit in February 2006 to the Lakes State, President Omer Al-Bashir had pledged to open a university there. Rumbek University is the fourth southern Sudanese after Juba, Upper Nile and BahrEl Ghazal universities.

A delegation from the National Fund for Students Care (NFSC) arrived in Rumbek, to discuss with the state authorities the admissions and the housing arrangements of the future students.

The delegation is composed of Badr Eddin Mohamed of NFSC and professor Samuel Machar, secretary general of Rumbek University, Abdellah Mohamed Ahmed of NFSC Bhar ElGazal and Gordon Dot, director of public relations at Rumbek University.

Rumbek University is jointly funded by the federal government and southern Sudan government.

In August 2008, the Southern Sudan government allocated 10 million Sudanese Pound to the establishment of the Rumbek University.

    What has been going on for all this time?

    Empty promises without implementation from omar bashir—It is all crap—how long this establishment of Rumbek Univesity has been on the media but nothing—has happened physically to show that it is real—It is just a waste of resources of employing people but they are not doing the job intended to be done—.....corrupt and brute government of omar bashir would not do any good for Southerners otherwise Southerners must work for their own distination which is going to be beneficial for the coming generations.

    This is just like a phishing email—

      I can say correct and well done if its fulfillment happenings as necessarily required by citizens.

      But, what would be the benefit of seeing cat without hearing "MEW, or hearing "MEW’ without seeing cat ?;
      (repeated words but not).

      I wish it would highly be appreciated if her establishment resulted successfully rather than ’middle question.

      This work might be full of major credits awarded by government from Lake states’ gentle men and ladies.

    Who are going to study there??

    It is a good news but will the local people in Rumberk allow other people to go and study there? This is due to the fact that in Rumberk, people there dont want other people in any parts of Sudan to do something productively there as I can give example how they are dealing with people who are trading there.

    Opening University there may be a good tools to open Dinka’s eyes because they have failed to construct any good building there.

    Let wait and see the type of University they are talking about if it will not be turn into fighting ground or frontline!!

    Brother in Christ,

      Busta, please Busta, don’t always against whatever is full of praise. I have been a student in Rumbek senior secondry school for 4 years, and I knew many students from different tribes of Southern Sudan studying in Rumbek. Some of them whom I have been living with up to at the moment and never one day have they been singled out or being mistreated in the school. Again, Rumbek senior is the only secondary school where different teachers around the South Sudan tribes plus foreigners teaches. if suppose we don’t want people, Rumbek community would have not allowed these people. If you go to the market, most of the shops are owned by the other people apart from Rumbek’s people and if they would have been mistreated, they would have left place.

        Thank Malou,
        Even I mr. Abuk D. Nhial had learnt at Rumbek complex two years after it had been captured from weak baseless hungry Arab government of Khartoum. I studied with Nuer of Ganyliel,Aweil youths,Few Equatorians and double different states yet no quarell that had ever arrisen amongs student as mr. dumb dull short sighted liar claims. Busta 2 must to be aware of Lake states as well as Aweil,Warap and Unity of how educated they are.

        Deal with north in advance but you would realise that what you are doing will be like when animals proposed donkey as a dancer,frog as a singer andsquirrel as an organiser of amplifications ! The programme collapsed because none of peopossers was proffessional to his/her work.

        I don’t even bother to ask Bashir about building University because he is a wellknown lier.People of this state,work similar to those of my state regardless of my little relationship with.
