“His excellency has contributed to this great occasion and to the King, 20 million South Sudanese pounds. The president gave a brand new V8 to the King to help ease the work of those carrying the King on their shoulders,” Dr. Marial said.

“The president has promised to assist the young King so that he can set up his administration. He has sent his letter of the things he needs and the president has agreed to assist.”
