S Sudan woes rise
NAIROBI: South Sudan can no longer issue passports after its German technology provider shut down its system because the country failed to pay its bills, the government said.
The passports and national identification server was blocked by its host, Muhlbauer, after it did not pay an annual software license fee of about $500 000 (R6.9 million).
Deputy Finance Minister Mou Ambrose Thiik said the government would make the payment early next week.
“We are working on it,” he said. – Reuters
