The week long security and South Sudan national bureau campaign to crack down expired goods in Wau town comes following a local order released by the town Mayor Arkangelo Anyar Anyar. 

“We are continuing with this operation until we achieve our objective that aim at protecting our communities from consuming expired goods,” said Anyar.

He urged the communities to be on alert when buying in the market and should check the expiry date before paying for the goods.

“Any trader who has any expired item in his or her shop should immediately report the commodities at dumping site,” said Mayor.

He said that whatever is being collected now is due to be burnt and a public announcement has been issued to those whose items have been seized to come and see the action that the authority is doing.

“This is a campaign on food commodities but next is on other materials like building materials some traders are selling expired building material to the people,” he said.

He said all traders comply with the regulations and failure to do so will attract a fine of between 500 and 1,000 South Sudanese pounds or face imprisonment depending on the size of shop and what are the qualities of the goods sold.
