The Minister of Higher Education science and Technology, Denay Jok Chagor today appeared before the specialized Committee of Education in the Transitional National Legislative Assembly to clarify on the distribution of emergency package allocated to South Sudanese abroad.

The chairperson of the specialized committee on education in the TNLA, Hon Ahmed Mohamed Musa, said the committee had a fruitful meeting with the minister on the scholarships.

He added that the issue of private students will be resolved by the Taskforce.
