South Sudan has asked its public institutions, non-governmental organisations and businesses operating in the country to sack Sudanese nationals.

The decision followed a May 26 circular issued by the Ministry of Labour, Public Service and Human Resource Development to put the Sudanese employees on one-month notice for having lost status following the independence of South Sudan on July 9, 2011.
