$73 MILLION IS MISSING FROM SOUTH SUDAN’S COFFERS: CORRUPTION OR CONSPIRACY?

On 29 September, the National Interest published an article posing this question.  It says that South Sudanese elites have responded to the UN’s accusations of corruption with their own: that the UN is fomenting an “international campaign” to destabilise South Sudan and its government.  The UN has released a report accusing South Sudan’s elite class of stealing tens of millions of dollars from the poor and war-torn country.  It concluded that $73 million had disappeared from public coffers since 2018, with $39 million stolen in the span of 2 months.
