Director of nationality, passport and migration, Agustino Madut, while addressing the gathering in Bor on Wednesday, said they have decided to start the process of registration decentralization to the states in Jonglie because it is a historical town.

“We are here to launch the official start of the operation of the registration that will provide the citizens with national certificates, passports and other documents that the citizen may need in the future,” Madut explained.

“It is the first state that we have started with because Bor town is a historical town and their preparations were complete. We are not stopping in Bor town, we are going to other states, all ten states will be launched before the beginning of the New Year”, he continued.

He said his ministry is making sure that South Sudan’s citizens do not need to go to Juba for passports, national certificates and others documents, which previously entailed long waits, sometimes a week in lenth.

Madut said the process would continue until it reaches the counties and most remote areas like Kachipo, in eastern Jonglei.

The state deputy governor, Hussein Maar Nyuot says his government will provide the necessary assistance needed to facilitate the process and congratulated the ministry of interior for prioritising Jonglei as the first to be served.

He said the state government is ready to give any support necessary to the registration processes and “will be working hand in hand with the department and we will be there whenever they need us.”

      You’re highly welcome sir! Juba is not the only place for everyone togo in and live for two to three weeks. I personnally agree with your decissions not only for Bor city as historic but also as right of each and every citizen to enjoy freedom wherever he or she is.

        Torit City is a historical even though our leader Joseph Lago was blindfolded by Jalaba and lost control. We still remeber it as a key city where Southerners getharing and resist the atempt by Jalaba. It was also a last place where our SPLA/M surviving during a distruction of Dr. Holocaust Riak Machar. Bor, Torit, Ayod, Akobo, and Nasir are Key Cities in our history.

          - roach!Please don’t call Bor City a useless under circle of flood! We all know flood is called aboor while the place is Bor as well as people. You should be proud to have such lives saving people, without them you would have been still worshiping Jalaby. You must be thankful to your Monyjieng who brought you out from Darkness. Your curse with your uncle Ngundeng also called Gatluak Manguel

    Rumbek is the historical town where the independence was achieved.Garang flew to Khartoum from Rumbek,not just that the whole peace process was negotiated from Rumbek.When people almost surrendered,Rumbek people rejected that and stood with Garang until the Independence.Where do you guys place Rumbek.Its electricity was give to Yei,celebrations cancelled?

      Young Lotuko,Mapour and Dinkawarria you guys are both with valid points; historical Towns could not be just be one. We have Bor-Town, Torit, Rumbek and so do any other Town in South Sudan with the historical record of Struggle. As Dinkawarrior and Young Lotuko pointed out clearly; the significant of Torit history cannot be ignore! It’s one of South Sudan’s historical Towns.
