WAU, 12 June 2018 [Gurtong]-
The workers at the Nilepet depot in Wau say they were sent home under unclear circumstances.

In a letter sent to the workers, the management instructed them to stay at home until a “refinery kicks off as scheduled”.

However, the Nilepet Supervisor of retail outlet – Emmanuel Deng Gordon, who has also been served with the letter, suspects nepotism in the oil firm.

According to him, Nilepet is still operational and the management has already recruited new staff.
“He [the branch manager] has appointed a number of new staff after us and they were not given probationary period,” said Emmanuel Deng, who was speaking on behalf of his colleagues.

“I want to make it clear to the managing director and the board of directors to look into our matter seriously. Let him be concerned about the [staff] of Wau depot and retail outlet.”
Efforts to reach the branch manager were unsuccessful.
