‘Sporadic’ strikes are politically “agitated” – Makuei

Author : | Published: Friday, June 17, 2016

The Minister of Information says strikes by civil servants for unpaid salaries are politically motivated.

Michael Makuei Lueth says some people who believe that there is a need for regime change are behind the strikes.

He spoke to media after the council of ministers meeting in Juba this afternoon.

“Those who believe that there is a need for regime change are they ones setting all these fires but at the end of the day if it comes to burn, it will burn all of us,” Mr Makur told the media.

“So…the best thing is that let’s tolerate, face the realities so that we can move forward with our nation.”

Mr Makuei says the council of ministers has directed the minister of finance and central bank to take measures to address the economic crisis.

Meanwhile, he stated that the budget for the new financial year has not yet been presented to the parliament because the institutions of transitional government have not been established.

He says the transitional government of unity is working within the budget of this fiscal year.

The new financial year begins in July every year.
