  4. South Sudan bank workers strike

    South Sudanese bank workers went on strike at the KCB banking group on Tuesday, demanding a substantial wage increase. Their wages have been cut by the government’s currency devaluation in December in response to falling oil prices.

    The company says it has been in negotiations with it staff since the December devaluation, although they regard the strike as illegal. The Sudanese pound was trading at 2.96 to the dollar until being floated—since when it has more than halved its value, currently trading at 6.4 pounds to the dollar. Inflation is currently at an annual rate of 164 percent.

    Other workers in the financial sector at Equity Group went on strike last month demanding full compensation for the impact of devaluation.

    OVER a million refugees have fled South Sudan’s ongoing civil war, overwhelming aid agencies and creating one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters, the UN said yesterday.

    It revealed that South Sudan, with an estimated population of over 12 million last year, joins Syria, Afghanistan and Somalia as countries that have produced over one million refugees.

    “This is a very sad milestone,” said UN refugee agency spokesman Leo Dobbs.

    South Sudan gained independence from Sudan in 2011, but civil war erupted two years later and tens of thousands have been killed.

    New fighting in July in the capital Juba created a surge of more than 185,000 refugees, mainly women and children.
