South Sudan dismisses 40 of its overseas diplomats


JUBA – South Sudan – So far, the government of Africa’s youngest nation South Sudan has sacked forty of its overseas diplomats on allegations that they failed to show up for work.

In a statement issued by the country’s foreign ministry, it stated that the sacked diplomats had been out of office on unauthorised leave for months or even years especially in the embassies in the United States, Britain, Uganda and Kenya.

It added that: “after fruitless attempts to contact and persuade them to return to work in the capital, Juba, it had no option but to fire them.” KMAUPDATES
