Wau 20, June, 2019 [GURTONG] - The acting speaker of Wau State Legislative Assembly said the state legislatures, from Monday to Wednesday, have been summoning three state ministers over
performance in their ministries.

In an inclusive Interview with Gurtong today, the acting speaker, Hon. Viola Alexandra, said they have summoned Health Minister Hon. James Patrice Ibrahim to answer to the MPs on the 500,000
South Sudanese Pounds, donated by the president to Wau Teaching Hospital on his recent visit to Wau, has been spent.

The acting speaker also said the minister was also questioned about the status of off-road vehicles which belong to Wau Teaching Hospital, as well as on his action to use gubernatorial article No.100
in the state constitution to replace the Director General at Wau Teaching Hospital.

“During the president’s last visit to Wau, he donated 500,000 ssp to Wau Teaching Hospital. The president made it clear that money should not be use by the minister, but solely for the use of the hospital. Unfortunately the money appears to have been taken by the Hon Minister”, said the Acting Speaker.

According to the Acting Speaker, the minister has responded that he was going to use 200,000 for renovation of a private facility – which did not happen. The minister said he has given the 300,000 ssp to the hospital.

The Acting Speaker said the summons of the minister came after the hospital staff brought forward their complains about the money being use by the minister.

Meanwhile the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Hon. Michael Madut Chan, was summoned about the on-going conflict going on in the former Jur River County that displaced thousands of people.

The Social Welfare Minister was summoned to explain his ministry’s position with organizations working towards humanitarian assistance, who seem to be doing little if anything, despite to worsening of the humanitarians situation in the state.
