At least 500 Parliamentarian support workers begin industrial action over low pay.

South Sudan continues to have dramatic scenes at all levels of its government. On Monday, the sitting of parliament had to be adjourned following an industrial action by support staff to lay down their tools. At least five hundred support staff of the national legislature protested plans to exclude them from 200 million pounds allowances meant for the August house.

With this biting incident, workers alleged each lawmaker is set to receive eighty thousand pounds, while the workers are being left out and not considered despite not receiving salaries for several months.

The police were called to swing into deployment as usual. The deployment included armored vehicles and personnel around and within the premises of the august house Monday morning.
