JUBA – South Sudan’s government is threatening to sue Ezra power supply company for shutting down electricity in the capital Juba without notice, the Sudans Post has just learned.
Last week, the power company said the government has failed to pay its obligations forcing the company to close down the electricity across the capital Juba with nurse and doctors on duty being forced to use their phone’s torches to serve patients, according to some reports.
Speaking to Sudans Post this afternoon, a senior official close to the deputy mayor of the Juba city for infrastructure Thiik Thiik Mayardit said the senior municipality official has summoned senior officials from the Ezra company to explain the unannounced shutdown.
“He has spoken to them and he summoned their heads because they must explain why they did this shutdown without notice,” the official who requested not to be named told Sudans Post.
He further informed this website that “if anyone from Ezra don’t show up, there would be other options including legal case against them.”
