COVID -19: There Should Be No Gambling With Lives

"The meaning of the COVID 19 HLTF was to augment the work of the Ministry of Health. If you look at it, the taskforce is overtaken by the new company owned by those who know themselves."

By Pal Chol Nyan

We have sadly lost great minds like Hon Wanawilla, Hon John Luk , Ustaz Martin Majut, Justice Majok Mading , General Marial Nuor et al; all that was and is due to the lack of adequate health care services, incompetence coupled with politics of stereotypes.

In this era of pandemic, it is vital that the work is given to those who can do it to save lives.

I hold no grudges against those who think the President loves them and so even if all does not go well, they will still have his ears.

Of recent, we lost Hon Telar Ring Takpiny Deng, Prof Wasara. Without having to wait to cope with such great loses, I was shocked again to hear that Amb Michael Mayiel has gone to be with the Lord.

It is important to note that Michael Mayiel was a former Governor of Unity State, former Minister of Humanitarian Affairs in the defunct Coordinating Council for Southern Sudan; he served as a diplomat in the Sudan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and until the time of his demise , he was South Sudan Amb to Ghana.

With the current pandemic, can anybody volunteer to educate me on the level of Pandemic preparedness and the kind of motivation that will be given to the frontline health workers?

These are, in my view, pertinent questions that beg answers.

It seems those entrusted with the responsibility to take charge of the COVID 19 are not living up to the expectations of the people.

The world is now alert and prepared to deal with pandemic especially the new deadly strain. In our case, the group has abandoned the trust bestowed on them by His Excellency the President.

I can't tell whether or not the taskforce knows how many cases are there in Kuacjok, Raja, Renk, Awiel,Yambio, Torit, Ezo, Mvolo to mention but a few because the concentration is in Juba and mainly travellers who pay hard currency.
Who says COVID 19 affects only those who live in Juba?

The meaning of the COVID 19 HLTF was to augment the work of the Ministry of Health. If you look at it, the taskforce is overtaken by the new company owned by those who know themselves.


My humble appeal and call to His Excellency, the President, is that the lives of your people are at risk.

It is high time to reconsider some decisions already taken even if it means making drastic changes where there is a concern. There should be no politicking with the lives of the people.
