Juba Mayor Clarifies Gudele Playground as Private Property, Sparks Debate on Public Access

Published on

Gudele playground has been a topic of controversy in Juba, the capital of South Sudan, with some individuals claiming that the playground is public property, while others insist that it is private property. Recently, the Mayor of Juba, Stephen Wani, weighed in on the issue, stating that the Gudele playground is, in fact, private property.

In an interview with local media, Wani explained that the Gudele playground is owned by a private individual who has allowed members of the public to use it as a recreational space. However, he added that the owner has the right to revoke public access to the property if necessary.

“The Gudele playground is private property, and the owner has allowed people to use it as a public space for recreation. However, if the owner decides to revoke public access to the property, there is nothing we can do about it,” Wani said.

The issue of public access to the Gudele playground has been a contentious one, with some members of the public insisting that the playground is public property and should be accessible to everyone. Others, however, have argued that the owner has the right to control access to the property and that it is not the responsibility of the government to ensure public access.

Wani’s comments have sparked debate among residents of Juba, with many expressing disappointment at the decision. Some have argued that public spaces such as the Gudele playground are essential for the well-being of communities and should be protected from private ownership.

Despite the controversy surrounding the Gudele playground, Wani has stated that the Juba City Council is committed to providing public spaces for residents of the city. He added that the council is currently working to identify other areas that can be developed as public spaces for recreational activities.
