Appointee to replace jailed commissioner in Wau
Governor Rizik Zacharia appointed a new commissioner of Wau County amid continuing political tension in Western Bahr el Ghazal state.
The appointment effective 5 November makes Elia Kamilio Dimo the new commissioner of Wau County.
The governor has been at the center of more than a month of political turmoil over the shift of an administrative headquarters. Last month MPs supporting the governor passed a controvertial measure to shift the headquarters of Wau County from Wau town to a village called Baggari.
