The former minister of Water and Irrigation, Mabior Garang is asking the government to legalize marijuana popularly known as ‘bongo’ in South Sudan for private consumption.

In a tweet he deleted afterward, Mabior asked the government to legalize his favorite drug. This came after South Africa legalized ‘bongo’ for private consumption.

South Africa’s highest court yesterday legalized the use of cannabis by adults in private places.

Mabior is known weed smoker among his peers and comrades. He is a firm believer in Rastafarianism, a religion which takes weed as a holy stimulant.
