Yei councilors receive training on legislative procedures

By Janes Innocent


Over 50 government councilors in Yei River County, Central Equatoria State, have been on legislative procedures and rules.

The three-day training, organized by the Raise Women Hope Initiative, aimed to “promote peace, harmony and justice” in the local government.

Lwate Charles Wani, the Acting Manager of Raise Women Hope Initiative, explained that the training’s main objective was to educate local government councillors on their roles, noting that many leaders fail due to an “undermining of the laws that are supposed to be amended.”

Yei River County Commissioner Aggrey Cyrus Kanyikwa applauded the training which will help each person understand their responsibilities and work within the proper procedures and ethics to solve the county’s challenges.

For his part, the Executive Director of Yei River County, Hillary Konga, urged the councilors to understand their roles and responsibilities and advised them not to mix their councillor duties with politics.

Similarly, the Chairman of the Yei River County Legislative Council, Claudia Millar, appreciated the training to help councillors know their mandate and responsibilities in the community.

Laila Apai, a reproductive health officer in the county health department, expressed her happiness with the training, saying it would allow her to better apply the knowledge in her work serving the community.
