He told the Assembly his state has recorded an alarming number of the IDPs who fled the deadly conflict particularly in Jonglei, Upper Nile and Unity states following the foiled “coup attempt” on 15 December 2013.
He said the vulnerable IDPs in the state urgently need humanitarian assistance from aid agencies to rescue and normalize their conditions, saying the state alone can’t do anything fruitful.
Earlier, the Chairperson of the State Humanitarian Sub-Committee under the Crisis Management Committee Paska Hifta Oduho disclosed humanitarian agencies had shown commitment and readiness to assist the IDPs.
Since the political unrest broke out mid-last month, thousands of people have been displaced within and without. Those in camps and UN bases are in dire need of humanitarian aid.
As part of positive responses, late last month, at least 35,000 IDPs in Nimule of Eastern Equatoria State’s Mgawi County benefited from emergency food assistance, through Plan International, one of the Humanitarian Agencies operating in the state.
