By Philip Buda Ladu

Central Equatoria State has posted three branded Land Cruiser pickups to enhance security coordination and intervention in Kajo-Keji, Lainya counties and Wonduruba Administrative Payam.

On delegation of powers by the state governor, the deputy governor, Sarah Nene, dispatched the three security intervention cars to the three restive areas of the state.

Mrs. Nene on Monday handed over the keys of the three Land Cruiser vehicles to the Kajo-Keji county security affairs coordinator, the Lainya county commissioner, and administrator of the Wonduruba administrative payam, respectively.

These are meant to boost security interventions towards emerging security threats in those areas that have been experiencing some unrest.

The State deputy governor reiterated government’s commitment to supporting the local Government councils in consolidating security through the provision of more vehicles.

Nene told the gubernatorial press unit that the security cars are meant to enhance timely intervention for any emerging security threat in the aforementioned areas.

The State Senior Government officials and three representatives of local government councils from Kajo-Keji, Lainya, and Wonduruba, witnessed handing over of the security vehicles.

On June 19, 2023, Governor Emmanuel Adil Anthony directed the newly appointed Coordinator of Security Affairs for the war ravaged Kajo-Keji County, to coordinate with the security apparatus on the ground to restore peace and security in the area and foster the fast-track return of citizens in refugee from the neighboring countries.

He further designated two brand new Land Cruiser Vehicles for Kajo-Keji County to boost security vigilance along the hotspots in the County.

In early June, Adil also issued an order effecting some reshuffles in the local government council security affairs coordination dockets.

He first relieved Brig. Gen. Luka Yumbek David as the Coordinator of Security Affairs of Kajo-Keji County Local Government Council and also removed Eresto Taban Luate as the Coordinator of Security Affairs of Greater Yei County Local Government Council.

Meanwhile, the same gubernatorial order saw Mr. Wani Richard Joseph appointed as the new Coordinator for Security Affairs of Kajo-Keji County Local Government Council.

Mr. Juma David Augustine became the new Coordinator of Security Affairs for Yei River County Local Government Council.

And the two former county security affairs coordinators, Gen. Luka Yumbek and Mr. Eresto Taban, were reassigned to be members of the State Vision 2040 and State Land Commission, respectively.
