Judges say strike still on in push for chief justice resignation
South Sudan judges said their nationwide strike is still active and vowed not to relent on their demand for the resignation of Chief Justice Chan Reech Madut and wages increments.
Speaking to reporters on Saturday, chairperson of the South Sudanese judges’ committee, Khalid Mohammed Abdullah said they are still continuing with their strike across the country.
In statement released on 21 April, the judges call for better working conditions, increased salaries and the reinstatement of leave benefits. The assembly of judges also demanded the removal of Chief Justice from his position.
Chief Justice is appointed by President Kiir and it remains unclear if he will issue a decision to find solutions to the ongoing strike.
