South Sudan To Streamline NGOs’ Activities

The frame work policy was passed by the National Council of Ministers after its presentation by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Joseph Achuil in a meeting chaired by the President Salva Kiir.

Atem Yaak, the Deputy Minister of Information and Broadcasting told the press shortly after the meeting that the policy consists of regulatory guidelines to regulate the activities of the organizations.

The policy requires that all NGOs register with the Ministry of Interior, commits them to abide by the laws of the South Sudan particularly in regards to employment policy and avail jobs to South Sudanese.

It also requires them to reveal their annual budgets and activities to be executed for the purpose of transparency and accountability.

Atem added that, the framework also requires the organizations to operate uniformly in the country in a move to equally provide services to the entire nation and work in consultation with the Ministry of Public Service.

Authorities in Central Equatoria State (CES) have often decried of NGOs congestion in the state but could hardly realize output of some of the organizations.
