Juba hotel cautions peace delegates over unpaid bills

July 1, 2019 (JUBA) – A Juba-based hotel has vowed to halt provision of services to South Sudan’s peace delegates over "financial constraints".

In a June 29 notice, Crown Hotel management said all room of National Pre-Transitional Committee (NPTC) delegates will be closed if bills were not paid.

“If there is no payment is made for outstanding bill up to 30th June 2019, the management will close all rooms under NPTC effective 1st July 2019,” it read.

Members of the NPTC were, however, not immediately available to comment.

In May, the South Sudanese government announced it was relocating all the peace delegates leaving in expensive five-star hotels to cheaper ones.

The decision, officials said, was to save funds for the peace implementation.

South Sudan’s rival parties agreed on a six-month extension to implement the next steps in the fragile peace accord. The extension followed threats from the main opposition group to boycott formation of a unity government on May 12.

    Warning to hotel owners in Juba! SPLA and SPLM consume without paying, you mess with them, you lose your hotel business. SPLA and SPLM have credits in EAC, AU and other world bodies. Stand warned!

      Juba regime is not willing to implement South Sudan peace, there is money for bribery but no money for revitalized peace implementation.

    Folks, stop making to yourselves! Oil money are not for hotels, first visit the oil producing states, they are still suffering from clean drinking water, leave alone hospital and school. Why crying for the hotel? Let them sleep under the tree or else go back to the bush and come back to juba when are over.....!

        Malakal county Simon,
        There’s no solution to our suffering people here in South Sudan, except when we stop covering up everything. Being in the hotel is not the issue that could hold the peace stable. Think about it well.

      Kush Natives,

      Be honest, development come after peace, if the country is at war, how would you expecting those mentioned states to have clean water, good building? let us bring peace first then the common good will come honestly. These peace delegates need to be accommodated until the time come for them to go homes.

        Kush Natives,

        Without peace, everything is impossible dear, note this well! don,t talk about clean water, good schools, building, food while the country still at war. If those peace delegates will go back without achieved anything regarding peace, what would you enjoy aYahaah Nincompoop?
