January 26, 2013 (JUBA) – South Sudan is still faced with challenges of assuring food and drug quality control as the 18-month old country has not yet established facilities to certify the quality of consumable goods.

Tons of expired food commodities or with less quality ingredients as well as fake human and animal drugs are believed to have been finding their ways into the country every year without being detected by the authorities.

The government however on Friday announced seriousness to embark on ways and means of resolving the matter by establishing a standard laboratory for testing of food and drugs and avoid the health risks involved in the status quo.

This came in a meeting on Friday between the Vice President, Riek Machar Teny, and the senior management of Cometa Scientific Company which is based in the United Kingdom and expressed readiness to install a state-of-the-art laboratory.

He and the General Manager of Cometa Scientific Company, Glen Griffiths, who was also accompanied by an official from the ministry of Health, discussed the urgent need to establish a central laboratory in the capital with branches in the ten states of the country.

    This implies that South Sudanese are already poisoned.We should congratulate the government for bringing in testing equipments though it is long overdue.May be priorities were self sustenance.Congratulations.

    Not just food safety remains a concern but everything, see how the south has been moved to a piece of hell despite it can produce 350k oil bbl/day!!
    Thieves and visionless people are the real concern, as long as those visionless people in power then the south will never ever see the rest but will always remain the enemy of itself!!
    Go to hell idiot thieves!!

      Jalaby, if you are that reasonable; then why is your government fighting rebels in all four front? i.e.: Darfur, Kordufans, Blue-Nile and Kasala in the west of the country. Look good first in your own house before you tell other their house is not clean!

        Man, I know you’re a liar and not honest at all but always twist the neck of the truth otherwise tell me where in Kassala there is a rebellion?where?!
        There is no rebel in Darfour but small group of gangsters since mid of eighty of last century and they used to hijack and abduct people for ransom and money and we will resolve that

              Despite the terror activities that Al-Hilo group are doing by shelling Kadougly randomly and killing innocent people, assassinating politicians and abducting Chinese workers, despite all that ugly terror of activity but that never stopped the development in S Kordofan,as you can see everyday we inaugurated new oil fields and so on!

                No worries, soon or later we’ll capture traitor Al-Hilo but make no mistake before we hang him we’ll check his body first and search for the tail that he talked about before, human with a tail is something very weird to me, I’m very sure he is just talking nonsense as usual but we’ve to check his body first before we put the rope around his neck and hang him!!!

      Mrs. Master,
      How does it feel now that you no longer have the luxury you use to enjoy because of South Sudan oil? Surviving on bread and pasulia now don’t you? Very funny! You think begging South Sudanese every time in Addis-Ababa is going to help you out? I don’t think so.

          Khartoum is hungry to loot or be compensated after borrowing billions of dollars from China and other Arab States.They are not able to repay back what they have taken.

              Mr.Nuer Food Lover,
              I agree with you about your comment.The most burden place of Oil in the South is Ruweng, the territory of Dinka Ruweng Community of Biemnom in Unity State, Panaruu of Panrieng of Unity State as well as Ageer, and Nyiel. You are completely right and keep that history. By the way,you really know where we get our income.Some people they don’t even know where oil is located. Thanks

    This is the main reason why the civilians always seeks for a very bright and brilliant leader who can lead to the capacity that can fulfill the interest of the citizens. I always doubt about Salva Kiir Miyardit,that his weakness in taking a good care of his people will be a major factor in the future.This time is not the time for the South Sudan to seek for food safety.

    I can’t believe this.South Sudan is under the blind leader and I have to said this no matter of what other people may feel about it.It is true that the most place where dump and stupid people can be found is South Sudan.I,Augustino,I am from South Sudan,andI have right to said this.If people sold an expired medicines,where are the laws that guided every citizen in the South as well as foreigners?

    It meant that the reason why the death rates in Juba, was so high is because of this fucken medicinces that are sold, while expired and No South Sudan Custom Check for the the incoming commodities or imports. The death rates in South Sudan will not reduce if the South Sudan government is not aware of this problem. By the way, I thanks those who publicized this information. Our government is weak.

    I, AUGUSTINO DENG, I am not delighted with this fucken shit of selling an expired medicines to the people. Now, I found that the reason why most of the people in Juba die of "Hemorrhoid" in Arabic mean "Boiya Siir" is because of this problem. I bet Salva Kiir Miyardit will go soon.

    Kenya and Uganda are conspiring against the people of South Sudan to eliminate them and control the resources. The two countries are responsible for the sale of fake medication and expired goods to the people of South Sudan. They sell flour in pencil bottles, no wonder our people die daily without known causes. But our government has the responsibility of ensuring the safety of food and medicine.

    In our country instead of crying. A government by definition is not only to hold a constitutional post and steal from the coffers of the government but to form institutions that safeguard the well-being of its population in terms of food safety, security, health, education, infrastructure etc. But it seems a lot of people do not understand what a government is.

    It is just like a family. Each member of the family is assigned a specific task to run the family. If the mother who handles the money decides to spend the money meant for food on her clothes and everybody else does their own thing, for sure that house would be in a complete chaos. This is exactly what is happening in our country but some idiots do not want the mismanagement in our country to be p
