By Hou Akot Hou


United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) has handed over a police facility constructed under a quick project in Kayango, Jur River County of Western Bahr El Gazal State.

Speaking at the handover ceremony on Friday, the Deputy Governor, Zecharia Joseph Garang said the new police facility will help the community by protecting the lives and property of the local people.

“The road construction has been done by United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), and Jur River County is experiencing positive developments from both the international partners and the people of the area.”

The Deputy Governor urged the police and executive chiefs to ensure that the facilities are properly monitored and cared for.

He also emphasized the need for better schools in the area, as the population is growing, and encouraged everyone to contribute to the development of Jur River County, despite the ongoing challenges.

Garang tasked the chiefs with taking responsibility for working in the public’s interest, rather than leaving the work solely to development partners like UNMISS.

“Such quick projects have given people hope in the delivery of services and ignited a sense of the government’s presence, even though it comes from partners,” Garang said.

The handover of the police facility is expected to contribute to the security and well-being of the local community in Kayango Payam, Jur River County.
