S. Sudan: China donates over 2,000 metric tons of rice to WFP


July 16, 2019 (JUBA) - The Chinese government on Tuesday handed over 2,185 metric tons of rice to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to support a school meals project in South Sudan.

The deputy Country Director for WFP in South Sudan, Steve Nsubuga said the donation of the Chinese food items will be used to provide meals to at least 86,000 children in 230 schools across the country.

According to Nsubuga, with over two million children out of school in South Sudan, the food aid from the Chinese would boost efforts to increase education opportunities in the world’s youngest nation.

The charge d’affairs at the Chinese embassy in Juba, Liu Xiaodong, said the food aid is part of China’s efforts to help end food insecurity.

"This makes yet another example of China-WFP and South Sudan conducting successful trilateral cooperation in boosting food security and nutrition in South Sudan. Food assistance is essential to avoid humanitarian catastrophe in this country," he said.

On his part, South Sudan’s education minister, Deng Deng Hoc lauded the Chinese government for supporting the country’s education sector.

"I thank the Chinese government who supported this program through this donation and we hope more development partners will come in and do like the government of China and support this program as well," he said.

The donation is reportedly part of $7million contributed by China to the WFP for the purchases of rice and other essential items to boost food and nutrition assistance in South Sudan.

        Good point, thank you!NAS forces should never allow those deadly food to even touch our soils!Worthless jienges who always wait for readymades and can’t produce anything for themselves can take it.No free food from China ever allowed in our territories, we cultivate, produce and feed ourselves with our own products,full stop!

            ..ourselves and the natural ability to produce food, etc,for the whole community.We have farmers who categorically refused to live in refugee camps and be fed like animals,they say, they rather die in their fields cultivating for their communities.See the difference?You marauding jienges are not,..you exclusively depend on others and expect them to feed you like retarded babies,shit!

              I like that. Just use your pointed horn to pierce this jienge sloth Antonia aka South South. In 2015, the daily monitor in Juba captured and reported on a single-armed man in Gudele after Abuba bridge. He was seen farming his vegetable garden with one arm. Asked why! He said he wanted to rely on himself and pay for his kids. Very interesting while two-armed jienges only idled around.

                    Waiting for free "nyam nyam" is jienge lifestyle. Apparently, kikuyu genes for hardwork were recessive than the dominant worthless jienge for idiocy and laziness, bastard. Too foolish to learn skills, too fast to seek free food everywhere like flies seeking for rot and filth. Just like bush gorillas: eat, sleep, fuck and just shit, human thrash.

        Antonia aka South South,
        Chinese free food for lazy jienges, thats what they’re used to. Like idiots who go thirsty in the abundance of water, jienges who have had relative peace since 2005 could be feeding SS. The Aweil Rice Scheme could be revived with the oil money, but these lazy sloths rather wait for Chinese Rice treated with chemicals.

              Anthony jienguyu bastard aka South South,
              From your responses, one can deduce you have no solid education let alone skills and naturally no work. Jienges dont work, they steal and rob from hard working people. I am grateful as an Equatorian from Juba, you have no home except drift like street dog looking for food and shelter. Jienge bastard, you picked on the wrong person.

              It becomes a moral obligation to fight jienges like you bastard without giving in. I work and take 1 hour at least to burst your jienge shithole. Keeping silent is the reason why hoards of drifting jienge scumbags have populated our lands like disgustful faecal flies looking for free "nyam nyam". No bastard, I shall screw you till you call yourself Antonia

            It is showtime! You started the show, we let it continue. We will see who quits first. For now, it is either you or me, that simple. I’ve written several times, you get me kill me, I get you, not only will I kill you, but defecate into your large nigga mouth to dispel those evil jienge spirits, dirty bitch. That is what our ancestors did to their enemies.

      Even by Africa’s pathetic standards, South Sudan is a complete joke. We have a ’President’ that has absolutely no clue as to what his roles and responsibilities are; the imbecile constantly makes feeble pleas for his underlings to stop engaging in corruption and nepotism - as though his office was not designed and conferred with excessive (growing) Executive powers...

        ..a suite of powers with which he could effect change were his stated intentions and his insincere and stale rhetoric to even approach matching his actions thus far. What do we get instead? We get an increasingly erratic (and irrational) use of Executive Powers by an unqualified and befuddled maniac. Progress could be made tomorrow if the morons in Juba only realised how unqualified they are...

                  ..So that every tribe gets a fair say in legislating laws - similar to how every U.S. State gets two [2] Senators; it would also be ideal to allow counties (in Referendums) to have of the option of joining Regional Governments where their Counties are situated. Everything from the Army, Intelligence Services, Federal Police and more should be equally divided on the basis of the three [3] Regions

                    ..Instead of having an ’army’ that represents and benefits only one tribe, you could mandate that the army be equally composed of personnel from the three [3] Regions; suppose you required 100, 000 troops... well, you would then require for each Region to provide 33, 000 troops and they would have to be intermixed, down to the unit level. That’s my two cents.

      The rice donation will not reach the cattle camps, but will end up in J1, the parliament, the council of states, and the diplomatic missions. In fact the people at the cattle camps at least have fresh milk to drink. I advise, the Chinese better distribute the relief to avoid chaos by those savages in Juba who call themseles a government.

    This is a further indictment to the leadership in Juba. Aweil Rice scheme was run aground under the current regime. Kiir went ahead and imported 1,000 tractors without any plan where these machines, their operators, etc would be financed. The longer Kiir remains at J1, the more South Sudan stinks...
