Raja mayor accuses soldiers of robbing civilians’ crops

South Sudan's army is once again in the spotlight for alleged mistreatment and attacks on civilians’ properties around Raja town in Lol State.

The mayor of Raja town Al-Amin Janga is accusing some SPLA soldiers deployed in the area of robbing crops of civilians, saying he had received complaints about harassments by soldiers in the area.

The municipal official attributed the problem to the delay of salaries for five months across the country.

Janga called on the national government to quickly send the salaries of the army in an attempt to improve the security situation.
