The President of the Republic of South Sudan Salva Kiir Mayardit has donated USD 50,000 (sh135m) to the South Sudanese students Union in Uganda.

The President�s donation was delivered by the Sudanese minister of Higher Education Science and Technology Dr. Peter Adwok Nyaba at function where Sudanese students in Kampala celebrated the Independence of the world�s new nation.

In a speech read for him, the President appealed to the huge number of South Sudanese students gathered at "Wonder World" over the weekend to shun tribalism.

The minister also urged the youth to lead in the process of discarding repugnant traditional practices such as cattle rustling which lead to the death of many youth.

He called on the youth to be at the forefront of reconciliation and nationalism among their communities so as to build a better Republic of South Sudan.

Dr. Adwok also encouraged the idle South Sudanese youth in Uganda to go back home and pursue education in any of the country’s five universities – University of Bahr el Ghazal, Upper Nile University, Dr John Garang Memorial University, University of Juba and Rumbek University.

Meanwhile the Student Union’s President Abraham Thon Chagai presented the challenges which the students are facing in Uganda.

Some of these include delay in remission of tuition fees and other financial problems. He said that the donation of President Kiir will go a long way to helping alleviate some of these problems.

The celebration was also attended by several South Sudanese dignitaries in Uganda.
