South Sudanese governor works under a tree
Without an office to work in, South Sudan’s Gok State governor Madhang Majok Meen has been forced carry out official duties under a tree.
“We are all operating under the trees – the governor and the ministers,” the state’s Information Minister John Madol Panther told Eye Radio. “We don’t have offices completely but we are now constructing (offices).”
He said state ministers are forced to “walk on foot to work” due to the lack of vehicles.
“Sometimes it is difficult when it rains,” Mr Meen said.
This comes after images were shared on Facebook of the governor sat outdoors behind a plastic table, which had a plaque bearing his name.
