The head of the Catholic Church in South Sudan has donated 10 million South Sudanese Pounds for completion of a project at Sacred Heart of Jesus-Kworejik in Luri Payam.

His Eminence Stephen Cardinal Ameyu Martin Mulla announced the contribution during the feast of Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Patron Saint of the Church, over the weekend.

According to the Cardinal, the money is meant to construct a fence and house for the priests and part of it to repair Kworejik Bridge.

“In many places I have moved to, I have noticed that many priests do not own homes. A priest in Lokiliri does not have one, another priest in Lobonok does not have a house,” he noted.

Cardinal Stephen also encouraged the County Authority to boost efforts on security in order for citizens to be able to embark on development.

Meanwhile, Juba County Commissioner, Emmanuel Tete Ezbon pledged to rehabilitate Kworejik-Luri Road to enable free and safe movement.

Impediment of movement along Kworejik-Luri, due to the poor road infrastructure, had sparked an outcry from citizens.

The commissioner also vowed to improve the security in the area which is another milestone to restoration of peace and stability.

“If we want to move forward, let us collectively fight insecurity. That is when we shall be able to construction schools and hospitals,” Tete said.
