Pochalla County Lacks Education Facilities

Jonglei State Deputy Speaker, Boutros Ochalla Ojulo. [Jacob Achiek Jok]

Ojulo said that roads open up for development to take place and the lack of roads in the area is hampering education.

“Education in Pochalla is very bad because it is isolated from the state counties, there is no way to it except by air and there are no regular airplanes. The only means of transport is through the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) flight,” Ochalla said.

He said that after shooting down of United Nation Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) helicopter in Likuangole payam of Pibor County in December, all the UNMISS flights to the area stopped.

“There are many primary schools in Pochalla County but the lack of teachers is the major problem and they have no secondary schools,” said Ochalla.

He said the community is constructing one secondary school with the Community Development Funds (CDF).

He said that state Education Ministry is in the process of employing some teachers to be deployed to the county.

“I hope that our situation will improve more and this needs all of us to cooperate and put hands together and forget all events so that we can deliver the services to our people,” he said.

Speaker has said that most of the pupils who completed their primary eight do stay in the county without going for further studies due to lack of high schools in the county.
