Construction of the building, located on eastern bank of Jur River, started in 2013.

Officials say the new office will help the region handle issues affecting national security issues affecting various communities.

Speaking during Friday’s occasion, the national security minister in the office president, Obuto Mamur Mete directed all army commanders to withdraw their personnel from checkpoints all over Wau state to allow police do their work.

“I don’t want to see an army man standing at checkpoints. That is the work of police, only if there is a checkpoint, it is only the police which is either customer or whatever, that is their work, it is not the work of the army,” said the minister.

He added, “If there is any checkpoint, it should be the police working there and we will see what they are doing. That is their mission, not the army and not the national security. This is an order”.

The deputy state governor, Angelo Taban and the country’s director general for the general intelligence bureau, Lt. General Thomas Duoth attended Friday’s event.

    As usual, Akol Kur remains in the shadows....The magnificent building on the eastern bank Jur river will claim many lives. The Jur river would just do the needful drown and carry the remains of innocent South Sudanese downstream....

      A school, hospital or rehab centre for elderly, blind, the crippled etc.. would be best. So much resources stupidly and irrationally deployed for objects that have no immediate priority. That is jienge logic and jienge concept for development.

          Set your priorities right, ya jienge juronit. Your people have no hospitals, no good roads, no schools and teachers have not been paid for 6-7 months. All civil servants work like slaves in some shithole farm called "SS". Do you know that jienges are dying cuz they have no medic care? How many jienges can afford a meal 🍴 per day? Just thinking like a chimp, jienge sucker!

            That is why jienges are dying silently in their tukuls or luaks since they can’t afford even a single meal and so most come to Juba and become beggars at all restaurants in Juba. Other jienge idiots wear suits and drive V8 yet have no homes. What a cursed people! Those like you with looted monies hide in Uganda or Kenya while your uncles and aunts starve to death 💀, ya Aryan jienge!

                You jienge fool! You stupidly started this war, it wasn’t imposed on you at all. Miscalculated power greed and faked coups staged by jienge half baked so called "JCE" strategists got you this far. Now you must sort your shit alone. If you don’t know where to shit, stop eating too much too fast gluttonously.

            I led a team delivering relief to Rualbet last week but our efforts were hampered a group of tribal youths in parts of Manloor and Pagol. A "governor" in this land was one time pictured sitting under a tree - it’s the same trait that believes it can deliver the country to greater heights!

    Let them build as many offices as they want. Should another leader comes, those offices could be turned into anything like hospitals or hostel for universities. Even there’s high probability of disbanding and prosecuting the officers of national security. Don’t dare asking what they are doing. Give to Kiir what belongs to Kiir will be the last word for them in near future.
