Citizens in South Sudan’s capital Juba have complained of the sharp rise in the price of consumer goods at the market.
Speaking to Radio Tamazuj, many citizens expressed their concern about the poor economic condition in which they live, as some revealed that prices in the market are increasing dramatically everyday.
The complaining residents reported that the price of a sack of sugar has increased from 180 SSP to 3,000 SSP, and a sack of flour has shifted from 110 SSP in the past to 2,000 SSP, while the small sack of onions rose from 200 to 4,000 SSP and the big sack of onions become 10,000 SSP.
For their part, several traders attributed the problem to increasing prices of the US dollar at the market, besides the insecurity fears along the Juba-Nimule road.
