South Sudanese in Australia want SBS Dinka Radio shut

Ajak Deng Chiengkou, the controversial Dinka language radio presenter who is popular for interviews with government officials and rebels on the war in the country since 2013 is now hot soup.

This came after a section of unhappy Dinka community members in Australia petitioned Australia’s SBS to have the Dinka program changed.

The petitioners argued that the radio station had overstepped its mandate by focusing entirely on South Sudan’s conflict and neglecting the other community’s news within Australia.

The changes have been evident in the programming of the radio for the last few weeks which suggests Ajak must have been warned by his employers.
