Rumbek, 24th October 2017. Shops and dealers in soft drinks such as soda and other juice in Rumbek are out of stock due to poor road nature.
Western Lakes State Chairperson for Trade, Commerce and Industry Gan Dhukpuou Malith says there is no soda in the town because of poor road between Terekeka and Eastern Lakes State.
He says over thirty trucks carrying goods are stranded between Juba and Yirol.
The only existing soft drink in the town is mango juice which is going to expire on thirtieth of October this year.
Makur Ater Akony, State Public Health Officer, warns traders against selling expired goods in the markets.
He says any business person who does not respect the laws and regulations of public health will be brought to book.
Traders and consumers have been complaining for the past two weeks about absence of soda in the market.
