“If there are such incidents happening they [aid agencies] should come and inform the government which is responsible. We have not received this information from the aid agencies. So this report is sort of a place may be it is not South Sudan,” Marial said.
Reuters agency on Tuesday reported that Aid agencies working in South Sudan, one of the poorest countries in the world, are under regular threat from members of the security services who beat or arrest them or commandeer their equipment according to the United Nations.
Human rights groups regularly accuse South Sudan’s army, an assortment of poorly-trained former guerrilla fighters known as the SPLA, of abuses against civilians.
Vincent Lelei, country head of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said the number of incidents hampering the work of aid agencies had jumped almost 50 percent last year.
