Tor Gai Environment Engineering Company (TGEC), which covers both areas, began in 2007 and is staffed mainly by women

Mary Nyapak Kuol, who works for TGEC told Sudan Tribune she blames the state government for not supporting them financially in their efforts to maintain a clean town, “in order to clean the areas and to keep them safe from diseases”.
She explained that they receive a wage of SSP400 (US$90) per month.

Tor Gai Jiok, the company’s general manager said the company had insufficient refuse trucks but said that the issue of funding had been resolved and that increased wages will come into effect next month.
Without sufficient government backing the company has had to resort to seeking a tariff from the markets they clean. However, according to Jiok “the government has increased the rates like the rates in bars and hotels; this will cover our budget.”

      Idiot! I don’t see the difference between you and a dog!
      Leave Dinka Agaar alone. Though they have some part of land still in Unity state ’the VP’s state’, they are calm for the sake of peace.

      This man is a dirt and should not speak to South Sudanese whatsoever. We are now a nation free from Arabs. Despite our differences created/crafted by Arabs, we shall no more be called Nuer, Dinka, Shilluk, Kuku Anyuak for examples, but proud South Sudanese.... So go to Hell and join your fake prophet ya poofter!

    Dear South Sudanese,
    People like Kurnyil, how have no South Sudanese heritage are quick to divides us. I have asked recently about the disease of mind (Islam) he was suffering from, but he declined. I stated clearly that, I would rather be suffering from HIV/AIDS than Islam, which he pretty much ignored. I outlined how his so called prophet of allah slept with 13 yrs, I supposed,paedophilia files!
