November 18, 2021 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s Central Equatoria State Governor Emmanuel Adil Anthony has relieved the Juba city council mayor of his duties.
Adil, in a gubernatorial decree issued on Thursday evening, said the removal of Kalisto Ladu Faustino from the position of mayor would take immediate effect.
“Governor Emmanuel Adil Anthony has today issued a Gubernatorial Decree for the relieve of the Mayor of Juba City Council (JCC) Central Equatoria State, 2021 AD,” partly reads the decree extended to Sudan Tribune.
The decree does not give reasons why the mayor was removed.
The statement further stated that the pronouncement for the incoming mayor of Juba City Council “shall be availed to the public domain as soon as possible.”
Appointed mayor in March this year, Ladu is credited for having improved Juba city infrastructural outlook, demolishing old buildings to be replaced by new ones.
