Addis Ababa, July 30, 2015 (SSNA) — In a move seen as a mean to assert himself as a capable national leader, the former South Sudan’s vice president issued numerous orders establishing more national institutions that directly challenge current government companies.
“Pursuant to April 15-18, 2014, Nasir Consultative Conference Resolutions and December 6-12, 2014, Pagak Conference Resolutions to enhance the economy of South Sudan, SUDAR Telecom Corporation is hereby established by this order as a National Telecommunication Company representing any assigned interest of people of South Sudan in this sector,” Machar said in a statement extended to the South Sudan News Agency (SSNA).
This is not the first time Dr. Machar establishes national institutions.
In the past, he created military command of the rebel movement, national committee for energy and mining, 21 states, foreign ministry, among others.
The rebel leader also established SUDAR High Tension Transmission Company Limited, SUDAR Electricity Distribution Company, Women Empowerment, Child Welfare and Social Development, and National Committee for Roads and Transport Systems.
Machar argues that the establishment of national institutions is essential to the economic growth of South Sudan’s rebel-held territories.
