November 3, 2017 (KHARTOUM) - Sudanese authorities have authorized South Sudanese refugees in White Nile state to work for local farmers, upon the request of the UN refugee agency.

In order to bridge the gap in the lack of funding for its humanitarian operation in Sudan generally and particularly for the South Sudanese refugees, UN officials convinced the White Nile government authorities to promote livelihood opportunities for refugees in the state.

In September 2017, authorities in White Nile State issued new work regulations on livelihoods for refugees, which allow refugees to work for local farmers as seasonal labourers.

"Since then, between 40 to 50 percent of refugees in the eight refugee camps in White Nile State have reportedly started working on local farms outside the camps, according to UNHCR," reported OCHA in is recent news bulletin.

The move "enables a sustainable refugee response, and benefits the agricultural sector and local economy".

As of October 2017, the total number of South Sudanese refugees in Sudan since 2013 has reached 454,660 people. The total of refugees arrived in 2017 has reached 185,025 refugees.

However, UNHCR figures show that only 513 people reached Sudan as of 15 October.

UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Sudan Marta Ruedas last September said the well-being of IDPs and refugees in need of humanitarian assistance in Sudan has been severely affected by the fund shortage.

The Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) 2017 for Sudan "appeals for U$804 million, of which about $304 million has been received. This represents only 38 percent of the funds required," said Ruedas.

    It is sad that our people are back to slavery due to lack of political vision that our leaders have for the country.

        Eastern,
        Jiengeland has no war, yet jienges are unable to lead productive lives, cultivate and even feed the SS. What is wrong? The issue is the jienge himself. He is lazy and only fights, rapes or steals from others. He is unable to be of use to himself and the rest. We say, he is a "human burden". Equatorians must extricate themselves from this worthless load, otherwise we WILL NEVER prosper

          jubaone,

          Stop telling to people. White Nile State in Sudan is bordering Upper Nile State. Majority of Chollo and Nuer are there now. Instead of calling them their real names, you turn around and open your big empty mouth to say something about Dinka tribe.Equatorians, Equatorians, shit.

        And I suppose your alliance with Khartoum during the war made you free men? You’re projecting. How many Khartoum compliant militias were in Eastern Equatoria during the war? How many Equatorian tribes worked for Khartoum? How about the Nuer - Khartoum’s favourite tribe? Tell me if you really want to start this discussion.

        Most of South Sudanese refugees in White Nile State of Sudan are Chollo and Nuer from Upper Nile. Shut up. Do you still believe that neighbor countries will get tried for Sudan Sudan civil and eventually will join rebels to fight Kiir? Do you still believe that Dinka youth with get tired and stop fighting rebels so that you get power, what a loser!!!!! Find something else to talk about.

          Why dont you just go and start working on jellaba farms as a cheap laborer? It is better than fighting, looting and raping. You earn a decent living instead of stealing from other people who work hard. If you wish to fight, then go liberate Abyei form your masters, otherwise eat, shit and sleep. That is what jienges do best

            jubaone,

            I speak Dinka, you speak Arabic Juba. In my farm in Juba, I hire Bari to work for me and I pay them very well. They are very good worker, but they love sex, alcohol, party, food and very cheap things. I am helping them to over all these bad things, Oh, they speak Arabic Juba too, no Bari.

              South South,
              1. Baris and other Equatorians dont give land to jienges.
              2. If jienges cant farm in their areas how can they do that in Bariland?
              3. Baris cant be hired by jienges to work on their own bari soil, Why? They could as well do it alone.
              4. A jienge cant think, he cant cultivate, he only eats, sleeps and shits
              5. You have no valid arguments, loser

                jubaone,

                I am not talking about Bari land, Iam talking about Juba, federal capital of South Sudan where land belongs to federal government. Yes, Bari are working for me in my farm and I pay them. They are good workers, especially when they have alcohol. It’s raining right now in Juba. About White Nile State in Sudan, these are Chollo and Nuer, but wicked people like will use anything bogus.

        The Dinka were the primary target of Khartoum’s onslaught while the Toposa, Lotuka, Dindinga, Bari, Mundari, Acholi, Murle and Nuer operated in Khartoum’s vast militia network. The Nuba and Blue Nile contributed more than all the tribes in Equatoria. It’s amusing observing yesterday’s slaves attempting to smear others with a word that fits them like a glove

      jur_likang_a_ likan’g,

      Blame Riek and his IO organization for destroying Upper Nile and forcing local communities to run to Sudan, to While Nile State. We have said it here many times that war is not good for our country. We asked for dialogue, but rebels do not listen and now you are trying to put blame on everybody in South Sudan. It’s Riek’s problem.

        You seem to be an insane person. Please revisit the history of the genesis of the turmoil in the country in a sober min with a non tribal sense of mind.
