June 28, 2013 (JUBA) - South Sudan’s two ministers, who were recently implicated in a financial scandal will not be allowed to travel out of the country, until investigations in to the matter are completed.

Finance minister, Kosti Manibe and his cabinet affairs counterpart, Deng Alor are accused of requesting and approving the purchase of $8 million of fire safety equipment without the knowledge of the presidency or any other relevant institutions.

The internal affairs ministry, a source told Sudan Tribune, has received instructions not to allow the suspended ministers to use their diplomatic passports when attempting to leave the country.

Any travel outside South Sudan would require the approval of the investigation committee and the ministry of interior, said the well-placed source from the immigration department.

The duo, he disclosed, will have to apply for new passports the moment investigations into their case are concluded.

“These are instructions from the higher authorities in the light of the investigations that have been instituted against them by the government investigative committee," the source said.

They are however free to apply for passports once the investigations and possible prosecution are concluded", he added. "The decision was taken to ensure that the investigation process is not delayed".

But an aide to the suspended cabinet affairs minister told Sudan Tribune Friday that the office of the minister had not yet received any communication on his restricted travel.

Augustino Maduot Parek, the head of the immigration department at the ministry interior was not available for a comment, when contacted on Friday.

However, a security source claimed the decision to restrict movement of the suspended ministers was justified, saying there were fears the officials would tamper with evidence, interfere with witnesses or sabotage investigations.

Meanwhile, the government, according to the source, has instructed the various security organs to be alert and not allow Kuol and Manibe to leave the country without prior approval.

          Where are pioneers thefts to be put on trail or investigate? An enforcement of constitutions should practices on those who weak community back ground like Abyei people whose confuse people where they belong, is it North Sudan, Bhar el Ghazal, or Apadang where their ancestors come from? If Deng Alor put in jail, who going to bring him out by force like the first theft Arthur Akuin?

            The Country is a doom country where big thefts running wild, even President offices is simple to reach. In South Sudan, it doesn’t matter where you can store Money, way up to the Mars and Moon, people will find the ways to get them. There is/are no easily way to fight corruption in South Sudan. It should be term limit to let every body fight the corruption by changing Presidency every four years.

    The fear of exposure of the real corrupt people in South Sudan overseas by Alor Deng and Kosti Manibe because they have had government operational files in the cabinet has prompted GOSS to take this decision. I believe the two ministers properly know the corrupt giants of South Sudan. Now they are viewed as enemies of GOSS.
