South Sudan President Orders Investigation Into Crude Oil Pre-Sale By Former Petroleum Minister

Just less than two weeks ago after sacking Petroleum Minister Hon. Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth, South Sudan President ordered investigation into his crude oil pre-sale deals.  
South Sudan President also organized an investigation committee to complete the inquiry.  
President Salva Kiir also said that “ascertain the number of pre-sale agreements and companies allocated crude oil on the basis of pre-sale.”
The investigation is expected to take 14 days only.  The committee will investigate:
1. The process of crude oil pre-sale and Taxes
2. Verifying the crude oil pre-sale data
It is still unclear to why the president ordered the investigation but it is believed to be because of corruption activities in the petroleum department.  
More to come shortly....
