April 21, 2020 (Nyamilepedia) – A hotel in South Sudan’s capital Juba has decided to kick out guests of the National Pre-transitional Committee (NPTC) over unpaid arrears, the Nyamilepedia has learned.

The Palm Africa Hotel management said in a letter dated April 21, that the government failed to honour a nearly $2 million bill of 38 NPTC guests despite their repeated demands.

“The outstanding hotel accommodation bill of 38 NPTC members for 12 months now amounts to USD 1,999,580 (one million nine hundred ninety-nine thousand five hundred eighty USD), covering the period till April 21, 2020,” the hotel management said in the letter seen by Nyamilepedia.

“Therefore, we request the 32 guests reallocated to another destination by the 30th April 2020. We can only be able to accommodate 6 (Six) rooms only due to their critical duties to the government.”
