The medical college students took to the street to protest over failure to be taught in the last three months since the University was reopened.
Speaking to Gurtong, one of the students identified as Amole Raphael Nickson, urged the University administration to prioritise their grievances within 72 hours.
“We are urging the government of the Republic of South Sudan to address this issue by seeking lecturers from other countries other than Sudan. We need to save many South Sudanese still suffering due to poor maternal health and related death rates.
Other students also demanded Mr. Thomas Madit the University Dean of Medicine College at Bahr el Ghazal University to step down since he failed to address such a looming issue of lecturing at the University.
“Some protested in response to the Upper Nile University’s decision of transferring its medical students who are currently admitted at University of Bahr el Ghazal to Khartoum,” Raphael pointed out.
They also demanded the University administration to inform them if it was ready to train medical students other than wasting their valuable time.
The college of medicine has taken a month without lectures since its reopening .
During the first demonstration, the WBGS State Governor Rizik Zackaria Hassan urged the University administration to recall former medical lecturers currently in Khartoum.
