[Photos] South Sudan to open new terminal at Juba International Airport.

Published

Africa’s youngest nation, South Sudan, will have a new terminal for its main international airport, the Juba International Airport.

He confirmed that it is different from an old terminal that was started in 2008 but had been abandoned for lack of funds. There is no word on the cost or source of funding.

The soon to be opened terminal is an extension of the old terminal. The airport has also been tagged as the worst in the world according to a report by The Economist.

The current terminal is in a deplorable state according to photos shared by a United Nations Advisor, Evan Cinq-Mars who works with Center for Civilians in Conflict (CIVIC). It comprises a tent with a number of seats on gaping holes filled with refuse in some parts.

Most capital cities across the world pride themselves with the kind of airport that they have. Beside size, convenience and activeness of air traffic, these airports give the first impression of a country to air travellers.

The case of South Sudan’s international airport is starkly different as it has been labeled the worst facility according to a travel firm. A November 2017 survey by renowned aviation organization, Sleep in Airport (sleepinairports.net), also ranked the Juba International Airport the world’s worst.

The criteria used included comfort (gate seating and availability of rest zones), services, facilities and things to do, food options, immigration/security, customer service, cleanliness, navigation and ease of transit and sleepability.

The website explained that the airports that appeared on the list of worst airports in the world are those that have the capacity to truly offend travellers.

The worst five airports in the world comprised:

  • Juba International Airport, South Sudan (JUB),

  • Jeddah King Abdulaziz International Airport, Saudi Arabia (JED)

  • Port Harcourt International Airport, Nigeria (PHC),

  • Crete Heraklion International Airport, Greece (HER) and

  • Lagos Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Nigeria (LOS).

A bishop accused of defiling three girls he was living with at an orphanage, infecting one of them with HIV has now sentenced to 75 years in prison.



Kisumu Resident Magistrate Pauline Mbulika found him guilty of three counts of defilement and deliberate transmission of HIV.

Joseph Agutu had promised to sponsor the minors before he started defiling them.

Agutu who hid his face from the cameras as police escorted him out of the solitary cell to Kodiaga Maximum Prison, had maintained his innocence throughout the proceedings.

He was charged with committing the crime against the girls between April and July 2016. One of the girls is aged 14 while two are 15 years old.

The court heard that the accused intentionally committed the crime and deliberately infected one of the minors with HIV.

The accused also reportedly touched the girls inappropriately on various dates between April and July 12, 2016. In addition, Agutu also faced an alternative charge of touching the private parts of the minors.

Four prosecution witnesses pointed an accusing finger to the Bishop with the minors recounting the sexual encounters that the man subjected them to.

One of the minors who is an orphan painfully narrated to the court how the bishop lured her and her grandmother to the trap.

“My grandmother brought me to him and he promised to sponsor my education. My grandmother went back home and left me with him at the church,” said the minor.

After a while, she told the court, the bishop defiled her and called the other girl and defiled them too as she slept on the floor. She said they were crying throughout the ordeal.

The court heard that the following morning the bishop refused to allow them to go to school but instead ordered them to go to church.
