WAU 11 June 2016 [Gurtong]-Upon the return of Wau State Governor, Elias Waya from the meeting, he said that they also discussed issues of inter-State movement of people and goods.

“The three agendas, the first was the emergency repairing and maintenance of pot holes on the high way Juba – Wau, number two was inter-States movement of goods and people, there are problems of looting which are stopping vehicles along these ways including the number of check points along the way, number three was the possession of firearms by civilians, which comes to the issue of disarmament,” said Waya.

“We five in number agreed and we came up with the resolutions that these five States should have to pass the issue to the parliament and if the parliament agrees on the issue, we again have to meet such that we meet the President such that we can start with the disarmament from now.”
