JUBA (SUDANS POST) – South Sudan’s Vice President for Economic Cluster Dr. James Wani Igga has revealed that the government is suspending and investigation unnamed officials for corruption in the economic sector.
Igga said the government has formed subcommittees to carry out the investigation against people responsible for malpractices especially at the ministry of finance and the National Revenue Authority.
“The issue of malpractices, we have entered deeply through our subcommittees and the MEC [Ministerial Economic Cluster] as a whole. We are suspending people, investigating others, I don’t want to go to names, recommending others for dismissal I don’t also want to go to names,” Dr. Wani said, according to Eye Radio.
“These are important steps and on some of them definitely those found guilty, penalties will apply. In our country if we don’t implement a penalty, then we are finished, the law means nothing,” he added.
“As a result of over-howling the necessary changes and reforms, we transferred and according to the law of the national revenue authority, there is supposed to be newly trained staff, and deployed according to the new law,” Igga continued.
“The old one was either brought back for further training or transferred to their mother ministries but there is a lot of resistance. We are not going to give up at all, we are determined.”
