Gbudue state governor returns amid detention rumours

He was away from Yambio for nearly three months.

Governor Patrick Raphael Zamoi, however, told reporters on arrival that he was in Juba to meet investors on investment deals.

“I went to Juba to meet the national government and ambassadors to discuss with them on how they could come to Gbudue state to embark on developmental activities after conflict,” he explained.

The governor said he met investors from the United States and China who expressed willingness to invest in his state, stressing that such initiatives would benefit Gbudue states after months of instability.

Zamoi also dismissed reports that he had been detained in the South Sudan capital.

He said commanders of South Sudan National Liberation Movement (SSNLM), who signed peace agreement with government in April this year, were due to meet the president in coming days amid plans to integrate them in the organised forces.

      The governor is lying. Where in WES to carry out investment?
      The governor narrowly missed death from the arrow boys when travelling between Diabio and Yangiri while coming from his home town of Tombura. All the roads to WES are closed except by air.you can only fool others not us the really SPLA who know every area in Equatoria as we fought in the front at Boo bridge.
