South Sudan: Rich Son of A Bank Governor Affords Koffi Olomide But Not His Equipment!
March 29, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– Bol Kornilio Koryom, a rich son of the Governor of South Sudan’s Central Bank, in collaboration with KAF International Co. Ltd and South Sudan’s Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport regret the $1.5 plus millions dollar concert they promised will not proceed as scheduled.
According to the insiders and also confirmed in the today’s press statement, KAF International et al will no long convene the event on April 3rd, 2016 due to financial difficulties.
“Despite the massive preparation and arrangements for this event, the company was encumbered by some logistical hurdles related to the hiring and transportation of the sophisticated equipment from a neighboring country” Reads part of a press release signed by KAF Public relation, and extended to Nyamilepedia.
Although the motive of a fancy concert in the volatile nation is yet to be confirmed, it is not clear if the United Nations or TROIKA would volunteer to facilitate this logistic.
According to KAF’s statement, the company will duly inform the public once again on any possible future dates “for this important music festival”.
The old school Congolese musician, Koffi Olomide, was going to be paid $1.5 million US dollar at guarantees of Mr. Bol Kornilio for a few hours permonance in Juba. Bol and his father work for the country’s central bank that has currently ran out of foreign reserves.
While Kornilio senior, the father, has been convened several times by the legislative assembly to explain why the economy is deteriorating as the currency depreciates against foreign currencies, many officials of the central bank, have been accused of corruption, money laundry and exploitation of black market to make extra income.
According to critics, the Kornilio family, who originates from Warrap, were trying to transfer part of their wealth to a foreign nation to avoid accountability as peace returns to the country.
South Sudan, a country that does not consume what it produces, has high appetite for foreign goods and services.
Despite having well trained citizens inside and outside the country, Salva Kiir’s government continues to hire officials, mercenaries and import goods from neighboring countries.
