Patrick Raphael Zamoi’s decree re-appointing Charles Babiro Gbamisi as the new county commissioner was read on the state-owned Yambio Fm over the weekend.

Babiro was appointed by former governor, Bangasi Joseph Bakosoro after the 2010 general elections, serving as commissioner of Tombura county for five years before his removal by the current governor in January this year to the dismay of the masses,

Simon Gbiafuko, a youth from Tombura, lauded Babiro’s re-appointment, describing the latter as developmental-oriented.

According to Gbiafuko, Babiro did a lot of developmental activities more than any other previous commissioners of Tombura county during his term which includes water network supplying the residential, local electricity using generators to light the town and above all he cooperated and worked together with the community.

“I am very happy to hear the breaking news that our commissioner Charles Babiro has been reappointed to assume his office again because people of Tombura county were not happy for his removal,” he told Sudan Tribune over phone from Tombura.

The re-appointment Babiro, sources say, did not come as a surprise the people owing to his record on effective service delivery in the community, while others claimed the community declined to propose names for the post and wanted Babiro re-appointed.
