Sri Lankan logistics firm sues South Sudan over illegal termination of operations

Juba, South Sudan,

June 30, 2021 – A Sri Lankan firm legally registered to operate in South Sudan has filed a lawsuit against the Director-General of Customs Service and South Sudan Embassy in Kenya over what it calls illegal termination of its operations at the Port of Mombasa by the two government agencies.

AA Global Logistics Ltd which has operated in South Sudan for years wants the unilateral decision by the local authorities through two subsequent letters dated April 29 and May 7, to terminate its operation at the Port of Mombasa rescinded since it lacks a legal basis.

AA Global Logistics Ltd, which also named Kenya Ports Authority as an interested party described the decision to terminate its operation by the South Sudanese authorities as “high-handed and capricious”.

“To terminate the applicants’ operations is flawed in law for lack of any legal basis to warrant the termination,” AA Global Logistics Ltd said in an application seen by Nyamilepdia as it seeks to institute a legal proceeding to overturn the decision.

AA Global Logistics is being represented by Justice John Onyiego who certified the court application by the company as urgent.

The logistics company, through Kirui Kamwibua & Company Advocates, says the respondents abused their enormous political power and acted in bad faith.

“The respondents are abusing their powers by acting at whims without any tangible or cogent explanation for their actions against the applicant,” AA Global Logistics argues in a statement seen by Nyamilepedia.

Mr. Zabadayo Kuol, the company’s director said in a supporting affidavit that AA Global Logistics is fully compliant with all the requirements pertaining to the company operations in South Sudan.

In an ironic turn of events, Mr. Kuol says his company was appointed by the respondents as a clearing company and thereafter entered into an agreement with the two companies to execute its mandate.

The company’s director says that there has been no complaint against the firm since it began its operations in 2019.

“The applicant (company) wrote to the respondents requesting them to rescind their decision as there was no justification for their unilateral decision which amounted to open discrimination, however, the letters elicited no response,” Kuol says.

The director adds that although the company is a South Sudanese entity and the respondents are agents of the South Sudan government, its operations are guided by the Northern Corridor Transit and Transport Agreement which treats member states, among them South Sudan, as a single customs territory, thus the jurisdiction of the court.

“The respondents’ actions are very high-handed, capricious, abuse of power and executed without any lawful cause thus this court ought to intervene and stop their (respondents) actions,” Mr. Kuol states.

“Sri Lankan logistics firm sues South Sudan over illegal termination of operations”

Sri Lankans, go home. Your Logistics are not needed here in South Sudan. There Indians in Kenya, Tamil Tigers of Sri Lankans took up arms in 1983, just like ‘ our mighty SPLM/A in 1983’. Your Tamil Tigers lost the war, here in South Sudan. We won the war. We the Ancient Egyptian fools.

We are not equal with you, not even the slightest, we are very racists and revenge full people

ANGLO-AMERICANS, their evil juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs, evils Bantuses, Arabs, their evil juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs*. And though we are on par with them, good to the evils and love affair with our country and over our people. When Mr. Idda Amin Dada, cameback to Uganda, he came and kicked the Indians, Pakistanis, Nepalese, Bangladeshis, Sri Lankans, white evils English piece of trashes, their evil juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs, there was English ( piece of trash), Winston Churchill, a piece of low life who even projected that their evil Juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs, would be *resettled in Uganda (their low called pearl of Africa) and Madagascar

They would have been dead long time ago.

There was another best, Mr. Milton Obote, he is an Acholi boy, He went and ‘ranted and raved’ against the white evils to get the hell out of South Africa during the so-called *Commonwealth annual meetings many years ago There was an English piece of trash who was sharing that dirty and cheap commonwealth annual meeting in Singapore, who took up ‘the microphone and rebuked Mr. Milton Obote’ that “the are some people here in the meeting who are railing against British empire and they don’t know where they are going to go to after this Commonwealth annual meetings”

Mr. Milton Obote was ‘over thrown, by by our enemies in Singapore’. Mr. Jules Nyerere of Tanzanzia, welcomed Mr. Milton Obote to Tanzania.

The vermins/parasites/viruses would have been dead. Reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. I went to Singapore, when I was studying at the UNSW, in Australia, Malaysia, Hong Kong.

Singapore is not a country, it is just like Hong Kong. During the WW2, many Indians, Malays, some Muslims rubbishes and white evil went there for drugs and spices.

And when The British (East India corporation, Dutch East India (Afrikaan) followed the Portuguese from Angola, Southern Africa, Mozambique; port Jusus, Mombasa, Kenya; to Makau (the biggest Chinese gambling capital like Las Vegas, USA). The Cinese have long since took back their Makau. The evils went and colonized East Timore and Brazil. The Dutch went and colonized Indonesia, the British went and colonized India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladeshis, Pakistanis, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, West Papua, Papua New Guinea, Cook Islands and Fiji and GOT AWAY IT>>>

The owners have taken back their country and their people. We are the Ancient Egyptians idiots.
