October 7th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan government has demanded reformation of the country’s civil service system to allow for new entries into the public sector.
Cabinet affairs minister Martin Elia Lomoro said following a weekly cabinet meeting in Juba on Friday that there are over 500 people in the civil service who need to retire so as to open up chances for young people.
Lomuro added that there is need for the 588 civil servants to be pensioned off so that new graduates from universities are allowed to join government institutions.
“We have some 588 who should not be in the system,” Dr. Elia told journalists on Friday after the weekly cabinet meeting in Juba.
“The government should introduce reforms to build our civil service and these include a timely audit of government institutions. We should put capable people into our civil service.”
