Noudéhou will, in his new post, also serve as United Nations Resident Coordinator, Humanitarian Coordinator and Resident Representative of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

The new deputy head of South Sudan mission succeeds Eugene Owusu of Ghana, who completed his assignment in July 2017.

      UN Boss,

      Do not listen to this stupid Kirr’s agent called Lenin Bull. He and his Jieng Council of Elders run government in Juba want to kill the non Dinkas in South Sudan with punity. They do not want UN to save the lives of innocent children, women, elderly. They love sucking people’s blood.
      Infact UN needs to hold the government in South Sudan accountable for the mass killings, raping, etc.
