The SSP 208 billion budget was passed with a deficit of SSP 77billion, which government hopes to recover from oil revenues.

Lawmakers earlier declined to approve the budget after it emerged that the country’s civil servants had gone unpaid for nearly a year.

The Finance minister, Salvatore Garang told lawmakers that government had already paid two months salaries to civil servants.

He said it was his ministry’s obligation to pay state workers.

South Sudan, where oil revenues make up nearly 98 percent of the budget, has been reeling an under economic crisis due to civil war.

South Sudan, the world’s youngest country after it split from Sudan in 2011, has one of the largest reserves of crude in sub-Saharan Africa, yet only a third of which have been explored.

South Sudan, officials say, presently produces 135,000 barrels of crude oil per day.

But production plummeted when civil war broke out in 2013. A September peace deal is largely holding, but a plan to form a unity government in May was pushed to November.

          reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. Fools, here in our ’Nilotic plains and valleys’ we don’t consider white people anyone. We don’t even ’marry Bantus, evil juus (so-called israelis)’. They cannot afford ’the the Dinkas/jiengs’ of the Sudan women. We used to ’marry Arabs women’ but we put a full stop to it after the creeps *shown their true colours*>>>

              Over 2m IDPs, 1.3m as refugees, civil servants, soldiers gone over 7 months without salary, no development. This bidget is for the presidency, ministers, parliamentarians and generals with their families. This is the SS they’re budgeting for, the rest can hang themselves. SS has been auctioned to Chinese, jellaba, Abbesha and Ugandans. It’s free booty.

    The budget is huge than 2018 fiscal budget but need the country to have full delivery of the services rather than to proposed the budget as it is and the country communities are not able to save from that budget.
