January 31, 2013 (BOR) - The Egyptian Ambassador to South Sudan, Mu’ayid Fathallah, made a short visit to Jonglei state to see the progess on the construction of the Egyptian clinic in Bor on Wednesday.

Jonglei state’s minister of local government Diing Akol, who received the visitors, said the Egyptian Ambassador’s visit was to witness the implementation of projects sponsored by the Egyptian government, including a health clinic that is due to open in February.

The Egyptian government also funded the building of a power station in Jonglei in 2010. It was supposed to supply Jonglei’s ministries and the hospitals and some residential areas, including the market with power, but it remained has not been operational due to a lack of fuel.

Akol, who is the Deputy Governor of Jonglei, admitted that the station is operational “because of having no fuel, which is supposed to be responsibility of the government of South Sudan”.

“It is the responsibility of the government of South Sudan to complete installation of the power poles and distribution of power in Bor town but that did not happen”, he added.

South Sudan is due to open its first oil refinery in July in neighbouring Upper Nile State. Oil production has been halted for over a year due to a dispute with Khartoum over transit fees.

Akol also pointed out that Egyptian Government has completed the construction of a primary school in Uror County that is due to open soon.

Egypt had expressed a preference that South Sudan not opt to become independent from Sudan in 2011 as it feared that creation of the new nation on the White Nile could jeopordise its control over the Nile’s waters. However, since South Sudan seceded Egypt has looked to improve ties with Juba.

    Egyptians will try to do anything to see into it Jonglei Canal is restarted. Hopefully, South Sudanese and particularly people of Greater Jonglei are one step ahead. Likewise, Egyptians are only interested in land and water resources- not out of matual respect and friendship.

    Nuer Empire,
    Above quote is true. A red line must be drawn clearly on the sand. Era of Egyptian Condominium isn’t still here.

      Master,
      Many of us know you’re a good person and expect more from you than this stupidness. Inside South Sudan, whether you’re a Muslim or whatever you worship, It isn’t and never been a source of conflict. In fact, Muslims inside South Sudan are and must be respected just like everyone else. Don’t try to send that stupidity that let South Sudan choose division of Sudan in first place.

    Since plan A of reopening the jonglei canal is forseeably unforthcoming,Egytians are looking up to plan B which are to push back as possible as they can the plan of building a hydro-dam along the Nile.On that sense,they’ve won since that plan is still a shelf idea at our HQ.Secondly,the Nile is currently being clear of any obstruction in such of sand n grass to ease the following of water to Egypt

      ...and that is done with a donated Egyptian machinaries under the pretext of clearing the Nile to ease the passage of cargo-boats.So to mind you,all Egypt is doing is a well coordinated master plan. It started in Jonglei and it will go around compaigning to win the minds and hearts of the gov’t as well as citizens.It’s upto us to plan our own master plan which is to receive the benefit and default

        ...point of correction.Diing Akol is not a dupty-governor and no near to be.Hussien Maar is still a second powerful man under that heirachy. Unfound verbal displacement is libel. however, discount this if your hand keying was runing faster than your thinking.

      Aliel2:Egyptians should work in your village not in Jonglei State as their only interest is to reconstruct Jonglei Canal too much risk to our biodiversities in Sudd sawamps(Sudd region) the world ’s largest and the richest swamp! We don’t need their clinics or school,Sudd itself will bring anything not existing now.

      Alier42, you may need anyone help that badly, but make no mistake about it, you’re just like a fish in the river and any thing that’s thrown to you to eat in the river doesn’t necessary mean it’s a legitimate food for you to eat. You have to exercise extreme caution to distinguish the bet from the real food!

        @ Chol
        You should not expect everyone to be of the same opinion with you ,describing me of whatever suit you, will be of no benefit to you and it bears no meaning to my personality.you also need to learn to appreciate what somebody gave you as a gift even if it was not given to you in a good faith.
