The retiring chairman of KCB Group in South Sudan, Eng. Peter Muthoka made the revelation recently in his final remarks as the chairman KCB-South Sudan.
The six more branches to be opened will make a total of 25 branches to exist in the Republic of south Sudan.
Information and Broadcasting minister, Dr Barnaba Marial Benjamin said the idea of launching KCB branches across the ten states of South Sudan matches the SPLM vision of taking towns to the villages.
Dr Benjamin, who was much impressed by the achievements of KCB, said the business has just started in South Sudan and many is expected especially from KCB.
He urged the business community to come in and participate in investment claiming that the necessary facilities are available and South Sudan is a free economy zone.
Meanwhile, the minister for Finance in the Central Equatoria State, Hon. Jacob Aligo appealed to the KCB marketing department to do enough on information sector to sensitize locals on the importance and benefits of the bank so that the little money they have they can benefit from.
Hon. Aligo as well urged the bank to also improve its services to the customers and give loans to the locals.
Simon Akuei, the Secretary General of the Chamber of Commerce added the bank has also a role to extend its service in building real estate; not just banking.
