South Sudan officials have been accused of stealing at least $4 billion from state resources. The nation’s president wrote to 75 current and former government senior employees asking them to return the money. This comes days after its oil production was shutdown following the argument with Sudan. The nation relies on oil as the major source of revenue.
In yet another scandal $2 billion are reported to be missing. The information minister confirmed the allegations were true to the Reuters news agency. The president accused the new leaders of betraying their nation's vision. His letter guaranteed amnesty to anyone returning the money, but said “the credibility of our government is on the line”.
