Unity State: Suspension of Naam river dredging sparks protest

The decision by South Sudanโ€™s President Salva Kiirย to suspend the dredging project on the Bahr el Ghazal-Naam River has sparked protest in Unity state. Last month, Unity State authorities received dredging equipment from Egypt for the project on the Naam River, saying it would reduce the flooding that displaced thousands in the state. This was met with criticism from environmentalists, citizens and activists who said that the plan would result in environmental and economic catastrophe, drying up the countryโ€™s Sudd wetlands, which farmers and wildlife rely on. https://radiotamazuj.org/en/news/article/unity-state-suspension-of-naam-river-dredging-sparks-protest

      Dredging should be highly opposed by all means.
