August 15, 2020 (Nyamilepedia) – A woman and her son have died in the country’s Northern Bahr el Ghazal state after depending on expired sorghum for a while, according to a former state lawmaker representing Korok West County where the incident occurred.

Honorable Mawien said the two died this month after failure of the harvest this year due to delayed rains saying the woman and the son “had stayed for days without a proper meal.”

“Every August, the communities expect harvests but because of the delays of rains, there have been no harvests.

“This place is highly populated [because] some refuges from Sudan came back. Now the number of affected household is 400.”
