June 27, 2014 (MAGWI) – The newly appointed Magwi county commissioner in South Sudan’s Eastern Equatoria state, Kingston Loduk has issued orders against trading in locally-brewed alcohol.

Commissioner Loduk said the decision was taken to encourage productivity in the state and ensure citizens remain vigilant on public security matters.

“It will also pave way for the development of human resources as well as the overall development of the county that is free from harm of the hazardous chemical liquor being used by its youth”, said Loduk.

The new order, he stressed, take effect from next Monday and urged county authorities to act on anyone found to have violated the directive.

“Those involved in the selling, owning and storing of liquor are asked to take away these types of liquors from Magwi county”, warned the commissioner.

Meanwhile, Magwi county authorities said that anyone caught selling, owning and storing locally-made alcohol would face tough penalties.

    This is ridiculous!
    Why when Arab/Jalaba banned Aragy in the north you guys considered it as part of discrimination?
    I believe big liquor stores bribed the authorities in the south to ban the Aragy and open the door widely for their business!
    Please ban all types of Alcohol if you really want people to be productive!

    One of the biggest challenges facing South Sudan is leadership that does not value livelihoods. Instead of addressing the issues that may or may not be related to the brewing of local alcohol, the commissioner went ahead to abolish the industry yet with out any thought. What is the commissioner going to do to the families who depend on this industry to send their kids to school or hospital?
