A high level committee, he said, has been formed to oversee the visit of the South Sudan leader. The committee, to be headed by the deputy governor, will also comprise of eight other sub-committees.

Neither the purpose of the president’s visit nor the proposed date for his arrival to the state was disclosed by the deputy governor.

“As the chairperson for the high committee, we have asked the state ministries to join the committees in support to make the President’s visit to Wau successful,” said the deputy governor.

He urged residents of Wau to turnout in large numbers to welcome the president on a date to be communicated later.

Ngberende, however, said the state government will provide additional security protection forces in order to allow for the safe return of civilians who are still at protection sites to their homes.

The South Sudanese leader, he said, is expected to address the citizens of Wau and address the violence between the residents which ended up displacing thousands of people from their homes.

Meanwhile, the state government will also take on renovations in Wau state, Jur River Bridge and Wau Rumbek road, further stressed the deputy governor.
