South Sudanese Students In Uganda Stuck in Hostels, Cry For Help


Hon. Otto Joseph Ben, a member of parliament in the South Sudanese students union Uganda, was hosted on Equatoria online television to discuss the Challenges affecting South Sudanese students who are currently stuck in Uganda.

He said that the dangers these South Sudanese students are gradually being exposed to during the current lockdown is real and quite overwhelming. He elaborated that, many of these students are currently stuck in their university hostels and rentals, living in a deplorable condition.

Some are living in hostels which have no utility such as running water and electricity, so as if that is not bad enough, they lack basic needs such as daily food on the table and other basic needs for their daily consumption which is really an alarming situation our students are stuck in.

Several attempts were made by the students leadership in Uganda to raise these concerns to the relevant authorities, Like the South Sudan Embassy in Uganda and in particular the office of the Education attache’ and also various government offices in Juba, to bring to their attention these concerns but we have not yet received any substantial response.

We read on social media that, there was some funds allegedly released by the South Sudan ministry of Higher Education to be embarked towards stipends and upkeep for these students but the whereabouts of the alleged funds is up to date unknown to the student’s fraternity.
