In yesterday opening of SSBC new building, the minister of information Michael Makuei Lueth said he does not want to see bleached presenters on TV.
He added that South Sudan is the land of black people and we must remain black, and South Sudan broadcasting corporation is being watched globally!
We must be proud to watch our black reporters on television to differentiate us from white. To fellow journalists let’s watch out things are hot in Juba he said!
In addition; Keep in mind that even though a cream is sold over the counter, it is not necessarily safe.
It is now known that chemical bleaching can lead to serious skin and health conditions which include: permanent skin bleaching, thinning of skin, uneven colour loss, leading to a blotchy appearance, redness and intense irritation, dark grey spots, skin cancer, acne, increase in appetite and weight gain, osteoporosis, neurological and kidney damage due to high level of mercury used in the creams, psychiatric disorders, asthma, liver damage and severe birth defects in children born to mothers who abuse certain chemicals.
You have only to look around at friends, co-workers family members and random persons in the street. Skin bleaching is a act of colonialism, shadism, colourism lost of identity and racism against black people. So you must stop it.
