Kiir’s aid did not reach Besselia County, says commissioner

The commissioner of Besselia County Commissioner in South Sudan’s Wau state said his county has not received any humanitarian assistance donated by the presidency.

At least 27 people have died of hunger in Mboro area of Besselia County so far.

Ibrahim added that despite the deaths and rampant hunger in the county, the people of Besselia County did not receive any aid.
