The South Sudanese Minister of Housing and Physical Infrastructure Jemma Nunu Kumba presented the proposed budget at the Economic Cluster of the National Council of Ministers.
The proposed budget to build the new capital in Ramciel in Lakes State was proposed by the South Korean Land Housing cooperation during the Minister’s visit to China last month.
South Korean Land Housing and Cooperation is the lead company selected to lead the five years construction project.
Minister Nunu told the Minister’s meeting that was chaired by the South Sudanese Vice President Dr Riek Machar that the project will be supported financially by donors.
The plan to relocate the South Sudanese capital to Ramciel was endorsed last September. Juba will however, remain a leading commercial town in the South Sudan.
