January 24, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudanese government on Wednesday downplayed reports its embassy in the United Kingdom has been shut down due to rental fees.

The spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the embassy was still operational and the rental fees would be settled soon.

"That is not true. The embassy has not been closed down. It is still operational. Yes, there has been a delay in payment of rent due to the current economic situation but it is being addressed by the ministry of finance”, Mawien Makol Ariik old Sudan Tribune on Wednesday.

The diplomat was reacting to reports circulated on the social media alleging that South Sudan embassy in London, UK was shut down on Wednesday for non-payment of rent since August.

Reports also claimed that the residence of the ambassador was also affected.

    Is there anything that this farce of a government won’t deny? Just like how they for a while denied economical issues at home and abroad. The government and country has collasped.. let’s admit that.

      If there is something frustrating and is eating up Kiir’s government slowly, it is the denial of truth and lies. I tell you, even when you say Salva Kiir has no lower teeth, still they can deny that reality. Things that are happening in South Sudan are well known to its citizens and they are so real like Kiir having no lower teeth and having marks on his forehead. Shame on the government!!

    Rent in the western countries is a beast. Economically collapsed countries like South Sudan should not try it.

    Government should realize that as long as no peace in country nothing will move forward be it Economic, Security, Stability, Service delivery etc. This government is not for the people, people are suffering in the country and government is doing absolute nothing to improve the living standard of the citizen.
