Majok Monydhar Lueth is the soldier with the baby on his back whose images have been circulated on social media. Majok is a single dad of two who lost his wife last year. The only way for supporting his children now is through begging on the streets of Juba.
The living condition for the children is worse too. Majok Monydhar Lueth joined the Sudanese People Liberation Army (SPLA) as a young man in 1986, and he has been served as the SPLA soldier for 35 years. A few years back, Majok got married, but unfortunately, his wife passed last year, leaving him with a six-month-old daughter. Here is the exclusive interview on SBS Dinka radio.
