Derive a better way of collecting demand, not locking shops, cabinet minister tells city council.

The minister of cabinet affairs of central Equatoria state Godwil Wayi has called on the city council to a void issues of locking shops as the act scares away young business personnel from operating.

He stated that the office of the governor has been receiving complains from both calls and social media attacks in connection with the city council over taxing and locking of shops alleged to tax defaulting.

Design a better mechanism of following up demand notes, let’s have policy that empowers our private sector to grow, to improve so that the government is also empowered,” he said.

Godwil called on the city council to be considerate when carrying out their duties for the business personnel and the government to benefit.

“This issue of locking people’s shop should stop. If someone is a defaulter, you can open a case instead of locking their shops, this has to be addressed,” he urged.

He urged better policy can help the city council carry out their work without any difficult.

The city is faced with challenges such as garbage, illegal and also high taxation on businesses, insecurity caused by unknown gunmen and the gangs said Godwil.

Godwil Wayi made the statement during the inauguration of the new mayor Flora Gabriel  on Monday at the main office of the Juba city council.
