Juba residents warned against misusing 777

Author : | Published: Tuesday, January 5, 2016

The 777 emergency police unit is urging citizens not to call the hotline over simple domestic matters.

According to officials, some Juba residents have been abusing the emergency services by calling the unit to look into familial quarrels.

“For instance, if you are fighting with your wife, our people tend to call us and tell us to take the wife to prison. That is not the mandate of 777,” Col Atem Marol, Director-General of the emergency unit, told Eye Radio.

Col Marol said the public should call 777 for life threatening cases only.

He added that rogue members of the emergency unit have been replaced with professional ones.

“We got rid of them and deployed other officers.”
