Author : | Published: Thursday, August 21, 2014

Lulu Refinery is expected to be re-open in Tonj South, Warrap State, according to the county commissioner.

The refinery was shut down due to lack of spare parts for the machine. This has affected the business negatively. They received the spare parts and the machines are being repaired.

Lulu is a wild fruit mainly found in the bushes of WBGS, NBGS, Warrap, Western Equatoria and some parts of South Sudan.

It contains substances that are used in the production of oil, soap and body lotion.

With the re-opening of the refinery, the authorities expect the production of these items to start soon.

He says the company will also export the products to the neighboring countries.

Mr. Wol told Eye Radio that the re-opening of the refinery will create employment opportunities for the communities in the area, and will also empower women in Warrap State.

“This the progress in my county and I’m so much happy for this refinery; it is also a job opportunity for the communities of Tonj south county,” he said.

“About fifty women collecting lulu seeds all over the five payams of the county.”
