JUBA? Feb. 20 (Xinhua) -- South Sudan said Monday that it had formed a high-level committee led by the country's vice president Taban Deng Gai to fast track the construction of the planned capital city Ramciel.
President Salva Kiir's spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny told Xinhua in the capital of Juba that Kiir set up the committee to carry out physical and feasibility studies around Ramciel in the former Lakes State? whose central location is believed to be an ideal site for the new capital.
"Already the committee has been formed that will take up the issue of the new capital? it will work in conjunction with the Moroccan officials?" Ateny said.
"So the work is immediate as soon as the President issued the decree?" Ateny said.
Morocco and South Sudan agreed to the ambitious construction of Ramciel that will see the government relocate from current capital Juba by 2022 after the visit by Moroccan King Mohammed VI earlier this month.
South Sudan barely has enough infrastructure like roads? hospitals? schools and electricity due to underdevelopment resulting from more than years of civil war and conflicts.
The country is currently mired in economic stagnation with annual inflation peaking over 800 percent? and huge budget- deficit due to conflict reducing oil production that South Sudan depends upon to finance 98 percent of its fiscal budget.
Ukrainian heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko knocks down Bulgarian challenger Kubrat Pulev during their IBF Cheap Nike Air Max 1 Outlet , IBO, WBO and WBA title bout at the O2 Arena in the northern German city of Hamburg on Saturday. — Reuters
UNDISPUTED heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko is currently unbeatable and improving with age, according to his brother Vitali, after knocking out Kubrat Pulev to earn the 17th defense of his world titles.
The three-time former world heavyweight champion Vitali was in his younger brother’s corner in Hamburg on Saturday as a sharp left hook from Wladimir Klitschko put Pulev down for the fourth and final time after two minutes, 11 seconds of the fifth round.
The 38-year-old Wladimir is inching closer to the legendary Joe Louis’ record of 25 heavyweight defenses Cheap Nike Air Max Thea Outlet , but Vitali, currently the mayor of Kiev, says his sibling has no peers in the division.
“I don’t see anyone in the world who can beat him,” said the 43-year-old.
“Age is just making him stronger.”
Klitschko completely dominated the fight in an impressive display to earn the 54th knockout and 63rd victory of his career with the last of his three defeats now more than a decade ago.
The 33-year-old Pulev suffered the first defeat after 20 straight victories and was made to pay for his pre-fight talk when he described Klitschko as behaving “like a girl” and “has no heart”.
The Bulgarian was taken to hospital after the Hamburg bout with severe concussion and a suspected fracture of the right cheekbone from the sharp left hook which ended the fight.
Having been put down twice in the first round and once in the third before the knockout punch, Pulev sounded ridiculous when he said Klitschko had been “lucky” Cheap Nike Air Max 2017 Outlet , which failed to impress the IBF, WBO, IBO and WBA champion.
“I have never seen such arrogance from an opponent and there was a price to pay for that,” said Klitschko.
Klitschko jumped on a plane in the early hours yesterday to Nashville, Tennessee Cheap Nike Air Max 2018 Outlet , where his girlfriend, actress Hayden Panettiere, a star of hit US series, “Heroes” and “Nashville”, is expecting the couple’s first baby next month. “The baby is almost there Cheap Nike Air Max Outlet , I hope I don’t miss it, because I really want to experience my own child being born,” said the father-to-be.
Klitschko says he does not want to take a long break from boxing after the birth and his manager Bernd Boente said his next defense is scheduled for April in either Germany or the United States.
Possible opponents are unbeaten Bryant Jennings, the winner of the British duel on November 29 between Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury or the winner of the WBC heavyweight title fight between champion Bermane Stiverne and mandatory challenger Deontay Wilder.
