Garang explained that failure to settle bills means they cannot renovate the hotels and now have staff who are five-six months in arrears in salaries.

“Wehave suppliers who are not getting paid also,” Garang added.

The manager of Royal Hotel, Kot Maker, said his hotel will involve the police to deal with those who may refuse to leave the hotels.

The outstanding bills have forwarded to the National Transitional Committee which should have received funding from the South Sudanese government to settle the bills.
