BOR, 11TH APRIL, 2019 [JONGLEI]–Traders in Bor town have raised concern over the loitering of animals at Marol market in Bor.
Mabior Kuol Ajok is the spokesman of Jonglei State Traders Union known as Chamber of Commerce. He says loitering dogs, pigs, cattle and goats are making the market dirty.
“The shops are having food items and if you comes to Marol market you will find pigs, dogs, goats and cattle loitering. Some of them die and get rotten without being collected on time. This situation cannot continue like that, it can bring diseases. We are calling on the health department to look into this as soon as possible.” Said Mabior
Kuol says Bor Municipality officials’ collect taxes every month but the garbage stay for long without being collected from the market.
In a response, the deputy director for Public Health at Bor Municipality John Makuei Alier said the new mayor will work on how to control the loitering pigs and dogs in the town.
This is not the first time for the business community in Marol Market to raise concern to mayor’s office. Previously many attempts were made to address the issue by the municipality but failed.
