The challenges are many, though the transportation is smoothly going on, it may take more than a month to complete the transport of those South Sudanese stranded in Kosti.
Mundukurat in Sudan are not making transportation process of our people easy, many obstacles are placed on the process; from the ground transportation from Kosti to airlifting from Khartoum. It requires patients.
On arrival at the airport in Juba, the returnees are received by a team from IOM and Red Cross; and transferred to transit or temporary shelters.
We South Sudanese have to thank the National Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Republic of South Sudan, Mr. Joseph Lual Achuil and Ms. Javana Luka Kpakasoro, Deputy Chairperson of South Sudan Relief and Rehabilitation Commission and on top of them our President, Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit for making every possible efforts to see our people who are willing to come home be brought to their lovely Homeland The Republic of South Sudan.
