JUBA — Youth in Kapoeta South County of Eastern Equatoria State have accused aid workers from International Organizations of sexually abusing and exploiting female staff working with them.
The group said several women were forced to have sex in exchange for a job, or to avoid the termination of a contract.
“All international NGOs have been ranked to be the most corrupt humanitarians NGOs in the area with reported cases of sexual exploitation and abuses to female staff working with them,” the group alleged in a letter seen by Sudans Post today.
The group demands job opportunities which they said are being taken by natives of other states.
“From the effect of receiving this letter, we need you to filter your team properly and to empty all positions belonging to the people of this county,” the group said.
The youth threatened to take laws into their hands by creating an unsecure working environment for aid workers if they fail to employ locals.
“Failure to filter your term, we shall take immediate action by creating an unsecure working environment for those staff brought from outside Kapoeta and none of them will have access to the interior part of Toposa community,” they said.
“We therefore, recommend only technical staff to be brought from outside for positions that require only expertise that is beyond the capacity of people of this community but the rest of the positions from cleaners to assistant managers to be filled by the people of this community,” they said.
