BOR, 08 June 2016 [Gurtong]
– Akim Ajieth Bunny has been appointed the new Mayor of Bor Municipal Council.

Jonglei Secretary General, Mawut Achiequek Guarak said that the appointment of the new Mayor came after a government panel reviewed 13 eligible candidates on Tuesday.

“Each candidate was given eight minutes to present their vision and plans and how they can change Bor Municipality into a better city. So people listened for 3 hours to these candidates and yesterday morning the Governor called the advisors and the minister of Local Government plus the Secretary General of the State government to see the outcome of the grading of candidates plans,” said Mawut to Gurtong.

Bor municipality was created by former Governor of Jonglei State, Kuol Manyang Juuk in April 2013 in a provisional order that also appointed Nhial Majak as the first Mayor. Nhial was later sacked in December 2015.
