Over 80,000 South Sudanese refugees return home: SSRRC


December 11, 2019 (TORIT) - Lack of basic services in neighbouring countries has forced 83,572 South Sudan refugees to return home, South Sudan Relief and Rehabilitation Commission or (SSRRC) said.

John Odongi, the SSRRC boss in Torit state, said the refugees were experiencing cuts in food rations and poor conditions in the camps.

He said majority of the returnees hailed from Magwi county in Torit.

“The people who came from the refugee camp they are getting integrated to their own communities, but one of the major challenges they face is the lack of money for settling,” said Odongi.

SSRRC, its head explained, does not provide food assistance to refugees who voluntarily return to the war-torn East African country.

On his part, however, the Magwi county commissioner, David Otto Remson urged aid agencies in the area to support the returnees.

South Sudan descended into civil war in mid-December 2013 when President Salva Kiir accused his former deputy Riek Machar of plotting a coup, allegations the latter denied.

In September last year, the country’s rival factions signed a revitalized peace deal to end the civil war that killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions.

    I command people of Torit State, especially those from Magwi county. You need to come back to your state and build it. I know people of Torit State like their state to stand high in the future. Only sons of Torit State will build their onw state. Be prepare for referendum to decide the number of states you want in South Sudan, go head Torit state.

          The Rhino,
          If there is no referendum for 32 states ir 10 states, then I will keep 32 states which I have right now. No pressure on me. I have everything I need in South Sudan. Let monkeys sing day and night in internet. People of Torit State have made their own decision to come back to their state.food support has been cut in refugee camps in Uganda.

                Damn Rhino, you want all the smoke huh? I’m surprised Pakuai hasn’t responded by insulting "your fake Ph.D. Riek Machar so-called loser". I need someone to check in on him to make sure he is alive.

                  Loser and crazy Pakuai is one big busy loose loser.One who is momentarily allegedly being survived by social welfare money in Canada,but yet being ungrateful.He is nothing but a worthless junk.His writings and frustrations about the West are nothing but pure reverberations of his personal failures in a successful high standard school/gov’t system like that in Canada/West.Every Dinka.......

                      ..this is the rule.It was the rule then and so shall it remain the same,’from nothing comes nothing’ period!If Dinka people only depend on muscles and savagery then others should/must not waste time but fuck them/Dinka up and teach them dear lessons for their own primitivity and stupidity.In fact Bantu Museveni of Uganda is diligently doing his homework on foolish Kiir very well.

              Hopeless Jienge kaffir, you still have jienges being fed by WFP. You wonder how these giant gorillas will still be fed even as their jiengestans are peaceful. Foolish, lazy, docile they will remain to be fed like caged baboons unable to cultivate for themselves. Look at them still hiding as refugees. Go home and cultivate, hopeless kaffir.

      Without oyol money, our fellow Equatorians in Torit can rebuild their lives and state. They don’t need lazy and foolish jienge dummies. You should figure out how to fix your god-forgotten and zoo-like jiengestans. You are a dead jienge once you return to your luak: No food, no hospitals, revenge killings, hang yourself jienge. Your lives don’t matter.
