Drunk policeman to be sacked, South Sudan prepares to provide security over Christmas


December 17, 2012 (RUMBEK) - The South Sudan’s head of police Lt-Gen Acuil Tito has warned that policemen found under influence of alcoholic will be dismissed from their duties while on a visit to Rumbek.

Tito was in the capital of South Sudan’s Lakes State on Monday to oversee police setting up security measures ahead of celebrations over the Christmas period. Speaking at a parade at the police headquarters, Acuil instructed police to always wear uniform during working hours.

Lakes State Governor Chol Tong Mayay held a closed-door meeting with South Sudan Police Inspector.

South Sudan needs "peace within our communities" before and after Christmas, Tito said, adding that routes used by cattle raiders must be closed to prevent the practice causing divisions between the country’s many ethnic groups.

After the decades of civil war that preceded the 2005 peace agreement culminating in South Sudan’s independence last year, the young nation is still awash with small arms despite numerous government disarmament campaigns.

Tito said that cattle raiders and bandits were causing insecurity in some parts of South Sudan as well as militia insurgency in Jonglei and some other states. He said that confronting these problems as well as disarming civilians was the way to improve security.

South Sudan’s Ministry of Interior has tasked the Police Inspector to tour all the nation’s ten states of before the Christmas celebrations begin on December 24. Lakes State was the first state Tito has visited in order to assess the security situation and the performances of police, army and other organized forces.

    ha ha drunken police officers should be dismissed with an immediate effect, because while drunk they simply cant control the public am also appealing for them to stop this vice or else this is going to be a drinking nation.

    I hope Lt Gen. Acuil is not uttering a just platitude. South Sudanese lost their lives thro’ insecurity that would have been prevented in a timely manner. RSS must be serious and act in an "interested-to-do-attitude". Tossing of words without deed is a common hallmark our Government is famous for. Change the style and you command respect of your citizens. We can’t afford our people dying anymore.

    Look at this renegade, you should got human resource management skills before holding senior position. Dismissal is not a tactical term to use for boosting performances nor drunk the only factor caused negligence. AS a leader you must have inspires terms and good governance to achieve strategies not threats. Shame on you

      Mr,Makunon,it is not all about renegade and Human Resource Management dear.The way the security personnel are portraying the image of the new nation is ugly.Tito has to use all necessary means to wipe out this type of behaviour unless you want to tell people that you do not see what is happening or you are one of those.By the way South Sudan needs overhauling if you do not know.

    I do understand all the arguments peopl are posting here. but you have to know that anybody who is in uniform while on duty should not drink. last time I went to Juba, and I have seen by my own eyes a drunk army struggling on walking on his way home. you can find anything like this in any part of the world accept in Africa.
