November 28th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – Lecturers at Dr. John Garang Memorial University in Bor town on Wednesday cancelled examinations demanding that unpaid salaries be given first, sources with knowledge said this morning.
One student who spoke to Nyamilepedia from Bor said the government need to pay the money so that their exam is taken. He said they have gone to the street to protest the exam cancellation saying it was a huge disappointment for the student.
“Yes we have gone to the street. Our exam has been cancelled and we were supposed to have it yesterday. We went to the campus for the exam but the exam was cancelled because the lecturers are not paid by the government,” the student said on condition of anonymity.
“This is a huge disappointment for us. The government in Juba need to think about making no mistakes in not paying the lecturers. We are the future of this country. A government that doesn’t pay for the education of the tomorrow’s leaders has not vision for thus country.”
