Governor Manyang said in Bor that the army is playing a crucial role in ensuring the borders with neighbouring Sudan remain as per the 1956 demarcation.
“I will give 50 percent of my salary in the coming months to support the SPLA forces at the borderlines. Civil servants will contribute 10 percent of their salary towards the cause”, he said at a public rally at Bor Freedom Square.
Governor Manyang said the action by civil servants to supplement the efforts to support the SPLA will pave way for more military support from the government.
“Since civil servants are contributing food items to support the SPLA forces, the other attention can then be given to purchasing of military paraphernalia. We are going to request the President to ensure resources are directed towards this”, he said.
He said the mobilisation of resources to support the South Sudanese army is being carried out across South Sudan.
“Contribution is not a new thing introduced by the government. It has been there since the onset of the liberation struggle and we will continue don so until we success”, said the Governor.
