A family is appealing for financial support to transport the body of a peace soldier who succumbed to an illness at a training center in Juba.

Edward Hipaingba Rakifi died while battling a hernia at the Rajaf Training center Monday morning.

He was one of the unified forces that graduated in Juba recently.

The late’s body was supposed to be taken to Yambio today but is stuck at the training center today.

This is because the family cannot afford to hire a car ticket or even to transport the body using a boda-boda.

“Here the cost to take the body to Yambio by car is very expensive it’s more than 400.000 to 600,000 ssp, Tadeo Sasa a member of the Azande Community in Juba told Eye Radio.

“We get somebody who is able to take the body with boda-boda at a low cost, but it is still expensive.”
