Juba hotel expels South Sudan’s NPTC guests over unpaid bill


Africa Palm Hotel JubaApril 21, 2020 (JUBA) - A Juba 4-star hotel has requested the National Pre-Transitional Committee (NPTC) tasked with the oversight of the pre-transitional period to evacuate its 38 rooms as the government failed to pay their accommodation bill for one year.

In a letter sent to the NPTC head Tut Gatluak Manime who is also a close aide to President Salva Kiir on 21 April, the Palm Africa Hotel management said the government did not honour the nearly $2 million bill of the 38 Committee’s guests despite their repeated demands.

"The outstanding hotel accommodation bill of 38 NPTC members for 12 months now amounts to USD 1,999,580 (one million nine hundred ninety-nine thousand five hundred eighty USD), covering the period till April 21, 2020," said the letter, seen by Sudan Tribune.

The hotel’s management pointed out they are no longer in a position to sustain the 38 NPTC guests due to low business volume and the poor condition of rooms.

"Therefore, we request the 32 guests reallocated to another destination by the 30th April 2020. We can only be able to accommodate 6 (Six) rooms only due to their critical duties to the government".

Another hotel in Juba, Crown Hotel, had a similar experience with the NPTC last year.

In a June 29, 2019 notice to the government, Crown Hotel management threatened to close the rooms of the NPTC delegates if bills were not paid.

South Sudanese government had to extend the pre-transitional period for nearly a year because it failed to ensure the needed money to implement the security arrangements and to resolve the number of states issue.

      They can move to their houses in Juba. This issue of rewarding rebels with free hotel rooms and free Nyantits must stop right now. Oil prices drop below zero, so government has no money.

          Midit Mitot,

          Shut up your dirty mouth. Nuers need Dinka to be something in everything. Dr. John Led you to be something during SPLA days. Right now, Kiir is leading you to be something. Those Nuers MUST leave hotels and go home. Eating free nyantits and then fart at night to make hotels smell shit is over. Go home Nuer.

    The rebels in South Sudan have been fighting for greedy leadership, big government, big positions and big money for nothing. When we says let us created more States so that more people will have jobs then, Riek Machar against it. When we says take 2 States for governor then, he said he need more this is a nation of confusion.

    • 22 April 2020 08:46, by Langbaar

      I am always called names by ’some low lives’ here on SUDAN TRIBUNE. But the whole dirty game behind Mr. Riek Machar, Lam Akol, Thomas Cirillo and other foreign puppets/stooges, traitors and thieves aimless rebellion and the reasons as to why the South Sudan’s peace negotiation was kept in the ’hotels, bars and brothels’ of Abesh (so-called ethiopia) Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, North Sudan all along was all about ’intrigues and to geopolitical chess game’ South Sudan>>>

      • 22 April 2020 08:53, by Langbaar

        by our so-called allies from of *the US, the UK, their UN, their sleazy NGOs, their evil juus (so-called israel), their gulf Arab states paymasters, their lackeys here in the IGAD and the AU* just like their then ’DR Congo, Angola, Mozambique, Central Africa Republic (C.A.R), some of their West African, Middle Eastern countries, Asian countries, South American countries or Eastern European countries like during their so-called COLD WAR’>>>>

        • 22 April 2020 09:00, by Langbaar

          And the vermin hope that South Sudan would be re-united with the vermin----the cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan just like their then East AND West Germany and the vermin would then run to their capitals and brag that their so-called *Western civilization and capitalism has prevailed over their so-called socialism and communism*. And most my online trolls and our own lowly informed populace are not reading our lips and warnings.>>>

    • 22 April 2020 11:06, by Games

      Riek is in Juba, why you guys arrested him if you have a power? Complaining everyday, Riek has done this, that and this without action taken, it shows that you are mouthpiece cowards. You Dinka have been running the country alone for last 6 years. What did you do, nothing. No single hospitals has built, no schools or roads. You can’t feed yourself, while your coynties have not been affecte

      • 22 April 2020 11:10, by Games

        Cont... Your counties have not been affected by war.
        Please stop provoking Nuer in general. We haven’t forgotten 2013 yet.

        • 22 April 2020 13:13, by Mayendit

          You are giving us a good answer. Yes, we have the power to make arrested all bad guys if we wanted to. Riek Machar have been defeated Military and there’s no question about that. Primitive living exiled like you can say that word and don’t know the government has upper hand to do anything possible.

      • 22 April 2020 13:29, by Mayendit

        The war that was fought is a political issues if it was between Nuers people and Dinkas then, 75000 Nuers civilians who runs to Warrap region and many thousands others Nuers who brought to WAU State by the UNMISS wouldn’t be there at all. During the SPLA 21st plus years of civil war in Sudan, were captured Rumbek, Yoril, Tonj, Gogrial and River Bo apart from many more others Equatoria
