July 14, 2019 (JUBA) - The African Development Bank (AfDB) has allocated $24.7 million in support of a drinking water and sanitation project in war-torn South Sudan.

The project, AfDB said in a recent statement, will benefit the cities of Bor in South Sudan’s Jonglei State and Renk in Upper Nile.

The strategic project to improve water supply and sanitation in South Sudan reportedly includes a component on the provision of water and sanitation to rural areas within the young nation.

“The integration of a rural water and sanitation component into relatively safe areas to be reached indicates that the project paves the way for increased support for water supply, sanitation and hygiene in these remote areas in the future,” said Osward Chanda, Director of the Water Security and Sanitation Division at AfDB.

With regard to hygiene and sanitation, a grant of nearly $2 million will ensure that schools and communities in eight targeted rural areas of Jubek State will benefit from 40 blocks of public/institutional latrines, which have yet to be built, as well as hygiene education, AfDB said.

South Sudan reportedly plans to start implementing the project to improve water supply and sanitation before the end of this year.

The project will benefit 300,000 people in Jubek State’s rural and urban areas.

    This is very good news for South Sudan. Bor and Renk are great cities of South Sudan and giving them clean water and sanitation will benefit South Sudan as a country.

      "Good news"? To any normal human with a functioning moral compass and a sense of self-respect, this would be regarded as entirely *shameful*. Why do you suppose this was not conceived, funded and implemented by those worthless dogs in Juba? You do realise that tens of billions of dollars have been stolen and squandered by ’people’ you regard as leaders?

        ..’Men’ whose *responsibility* it was (*is*) to deliver these very projects and services that they shamelessly think can and should be outsourced to foreign NGOs, governments and institutions. Those death-deserving mis-leaders in Juba could have done this project (and thousands more like it) with revenue streams that other African Countries could only dreamed of and yet nothing was done...

          ..We are not even a Nation — we are not deserving of the name; we are schizophrenic beggars that wish to maintain contradictory positions and policies. We are ostensibly Sovereign; we reject, rebuke and frame any and all foreign criticism (s), encouragement and counsel as ’meddling’ -> while maintaining that we are young, weak and need of help. South Sudan is a mangy dog.

            Khent,

            Very good questions but as usual regime apologists won’t answer them - they are good at yapping congratulations, this or that is very good, etc without questioning the powers that be why it can put up such facilities in the first place....

              Leave khent alone to ask me with any question he wants. Khent wants good for South Sudan. Unlike you, you want good for Karo nation. We will teach you very dear lessons you will never forget.

                    Calm down, bro. Eastern is from Eastern Equatoria, so he can’t be Karo; the Karo are confined to Central Equatoria. There are no truly civilized tribes in South Sudan - making our attempts at denigrating each other beyond redundant. Some people may have provoked you with their genocidal ideations, but just ignore and dismiss them.

                      You are the one who need to come down, bro. Eastern is a pure Karo man. I can’t believe you allow yourself to be taken in easily by people like Eastern who is a real monkey and rat. How can you ignore someone who wants to kill the entire tribe you belong to? I really question your logic when dealing with real things.

                        The Karo are confined to Central Equatoria, so how can he be Karo when he’s from Eastern Equatoria? That’s why he chose that pseudonym. No tribe (or collection thereof) has any chance of wiping out the Dinka, so just see it for what it is — an empty threat inspired by genuine grievances...

                          How would you know he is from Eastern Equatoria? The guy said it openly here in this forum that he is a Karo man. Calling himself Eastern has nothing to do with Eastern Equatoria. Yes, I know he is weak with his NAS and has no any power to wipe out Dinka tribe in South Sudan, but we cannot ignore stupid people to have free ride saying dirty things about others. He must pay for his stupidit

                            Eastern has existed long before NAS came into existence. Just check out your facts or you would continue to shoot in the dark. He who fails to see the genuine grievances and concerns I continue to raise better open their eyes wider...!

                              You are Karo man, don’t waste our time. You are weak unorganized, and have no people to represent. You think power will be given to you because you cry in net 24/7 a week. Your NAS is even very weak, next.

                              Anthony who claimed to have a jienge father and kikuyu mother has through his "responses" exposed himself as "South South". He foolishly left his "footprints" and everyone could tell that this was the same bush nigga. That is how you catch a jienge impostor. Thinking intelligently aint their domain, rather this jienge miscreant and bastard should hang himself 😂

                                  Nothing will happen come November 2019.Jienges these days are visibly fidgeting like stinking rats in a hot ditch,trying hastily to lump things together before November. Machar with his status still in prison,should without hesitations boycott this whole peace shit and send jienges to hell.

                          ..I understand why you react the way you do; this is precisely how I used to react when people made threats of genocide against the Dinka, but I’ve sinced tuned it all out and disregarded it. You have to realise that the Dinka have morphed into the very thing we professed to be against — oppressors, so expect resentment.

                            ..I could be wrong, but I seem to recall Eastern saying that he is from Eastern Equatoria. I suppose we’ll have to wait for him to clear this up for us. It really does not matter because one should not put much stock into these kinds of threats. I’ll agree and disagree with anyone (on a case-by-case basis) even if they have made threats against my tribe.

              The reason they ("regime apologists") are supportive of this criminal syndicate is simply because they identify with it - in more ways than one; this regime is a representation and an instrument of and for their tribe — especially in regard to State sanctioned land-theft; the regime is also a pathway for well connected imbeciles to gain material wealth...
