Deputy Mayor for Social Service of Juba City Council Thiik Thiik Mayardit has promised justice for the relieved 10 staff of UAP Insurance Company.

This came after the Mayor of Juba City Council Flora Gabriel Modi  last week revoked his order to shutdown operation of UAP Insurance a subsidiary of Old Mutual.

 “To the disadvantaged South Sudanese who have faced humiliation toward the end of the year by foreigners especially our 10 nationals who recently got sacked unlawfully by UAP, be rest assured that Justice will be served no matter how long it will take,” said Thiik on his Facebook page on Monday.

In October, the staff of UAP complained of low pay and the company’s unfair treatment of the national staff.

This forced the company to suspend about 10 national staff for staging a sit-in strike, bringing the UAP business to a standstill.

On 4 October, the National Ministry of Labor ordered UAP Company to instate but the management reneged.

On 20th November, Thiik Thiik Mayardit, Deputy Mayor for Social Service ordered the shutdown of the company after it failed to restate the 10 nationals.

On 22 December, the Mayor of Juba City Council, Flora Gabriel Modi revoked the order of his deputy and reopened the company, saying the matter was beyond her powers.
