July 18, 2014 (RUMBEK) – A hospital in South Sudan’s Lakes states has suspended operations, barely a week after its official opening by president Salva Kiir.

High operations costs, officials said, resulted into the closure of Kiir Mayardit Women’s Hospital in the capital, Rumbek. The facility was opened when the president visited Lake states last week.

The hospital was reportedly forced to halt normal functioning due to fuel shortage to run its generators. About $1,500 is reportedly required daily to operate these generators.

Paul Ater, the hospital’s director general, was quoted saying they would resume operations when the government provides fuel.

      Please you’re putting the horse before the cart! You don’t have the simplest things such as roads; electricity, running water and simplest health facilities and you’re talking of solar energy?

      This like claiming to go to the moon when you don’t even have the helicopter to fly let alone a jet!

    Ann Itto, the SPLM’s acting secretary-general, said the new nation was much better position than it was during the pre-independence era.

    “We started well for the last three years. We have built roads; we have built schools; we have built hospitals; we have developed laws. We started building the foundation of a nation,” she added.
