Information Minister warns those ‘resistant’ to new license plate

The Minister of Information has warned that vehicles that do not bear the new SSD license plate will be impounded.

The SSD number plate was introduced by the Directorate of Traffic Police in March 2016 to nationalize the number plates.

The office then gave all vehicle owners two weeks to re-new their number plates to SSD. Renewal costs 5,000 pounds.

Michael Makuei Lueth says security organs have been directed to apprehend those who are “resistant” to the order.

“All those who are driving cars here in Juba without plate numbers are warned not to do so but to fix their plate numbers,” he told the media after the weekly cabinet meeting on Friday in Juba.

Last year, the Traffic Police Directorate in the Ministry of Interior directed all the states in the country to put into effect the use of the unified number plates.
