Civil society organizations will examine the oil sectors in South Sudan to answer the questions that they never use to answer, says activist Dr James Okuk.
 
He explains that their voice will unite with the voice of the local population and international community about oil problem.
 
Okuk says that the Revitalised Peace Pact has helped positively in opening up freedom of inquiry for civil society groups to question authorities on issues on oil.
 
The activist explains that the reasons that made people not to ask about what was happening before were because the oil fields were war frontlines, fully occupied by the army.
 
Local communities also believe that there are bad spirits that pollute and contaminate their drinking water, but they are getting aware that it is the oil bringing some of their problems, he discloses.
 
There are various cases on skin diseases and a child been born without limbs in Tharjaz area and nothing much was heard from the health investigation done, says Dr Bior K. Bior, Executive Director of Nile Initiative for Health and Environment, during his presentation.
 
He adds that people are complaining about skin diseases, death of animals and infertility among men and women.
 
There have been reports of irregular or completely no menstruation period for women and continuous abortion in the oil fields.
 
The public session was held on Monday to refresh minds on the oil and power conference and the impact of that sector in various areas.
