Currency exchange in South Sudan


TODAY MARKED THE DEADLINE FOR PEOPLE IN SOUTH SUDAN TO EXCHANGE THEIR OLD SUDAN CURRENCY FOR THE NEW SOUTH SUDAN POUND. THE GOVERNMENT IS CLAIMING THAT THE PROCESS WAS A SUCCESS IN THE 10 STATES OF THE COUNTRY. BUT PEOPLE IN RURAL AREAS ARE COMPLAINING THAT THEY WERE LEFT OUT… AND MANY ARE NOW LEFT PENNILESS, HOLDING WORTHLESS SUDANESE POUNDS. WE HAVE A SERIES OF REPORTS ON THIS IMPORTANT ISSUE ON TONIGHT’S SHOW, AND BEGIN IN JUBA, WITH OUR REPORTER MUGUME DAVIS RWAKARINGI.
