(BOR, JONGLEI) – Caretaker Governor of Jonglei has fired his State Minister of Finance over allegations of corruption. Dhanojak Obongo was fired Tuesday evening in a decree. Obongo is alleged to have diverted 300,000 SSP meant for maintenance of government vehicles from the Ministry’s accounts.

The move comes after an investigative committee presented a report of an earlier incident to the governor. The former Minister was involved in a scandal over misuse of funds allocated to Pibor County. It is not clear whether he has been fired for embezzling Pibor or the maintenance funds. ♦
