This letter from Bishop Kondo is a request for funds to pay the salaries of the staff at the CMS school in Omdurman under threat of legal action by the staff. The receipt from Unity is confirmation that this 'donation' was paid.
It should be noted that, according to the Unity High School Trust Deed, donations of any kind to any person or organisation are in direct contravention of the Trust set up to safeguard the finances and assets of the school. As the supposed Chairman of the School Council (albeit illegally self-appointed), Kondo is, or should be very familiar with the illegality of this request. Robert Boulos, the illegally appointed Director of Unity should also be aware of the illegal nature of this request but has nonetheless, paid the requested sum.
This sum of money was never paid to the staff at the CMS school. Indeed in May 2011, it was reported that the staff are denied their salaries for several months in each year - every year: currently a sum of approximately 450SDG per month. As an explanation for this non-payment of salaries, the staff were informed that the Church has very little money due to it being routinely stolen by the government. This is clearly a blatant lie. The Church has more than sufficient funds to cover the salaries of a few staff and ancillary workers at a small school in Omdurman - more than sufficient funds are illegally taken from Unity High School each year to pay the CMS school staff several times over. So where is this money going? Where is the 40,000SDG that the Bishop - well known for his theft of Unity High School in 1995, requested in 2009? The Bishop requested the money on behalf of the Episcopal Church of Sudan, in his role as Bishop and received the funds in this capacity himself. The Bishop is then personally liable for this money, on behalf of the ECS. At no time did the staff at the CMS school threaten legal action over the non-payment of their salaries as is suggested in this letter.
At Unity High School, anger ran high over the revelation of the existence of this document, especially in view of the fact that Robert Boulos, at the start of May 2001, denied the ex-pat teachers their salaries altogether (though he later capitulated and paid what was owed) and as at the date of this Archive post, is, along with Bishop Kondo, refusing to pay the ex-pat staff their legal entitlement to social insurance. These social insurance payments have been denied to the ex-pat staff for a number of years.
The Bishop in his self-declared role as Chairman of Unity High School Council is now facing legal action over the non-payment of social insurance to members of the school teaching staff. His answer to a phone call from the lawyer today was "go and see Robbie about it!" Yet clearly, he is ultimately responsible for the releasing of the funds to make the payment to the staff. Non-payment of monies owed to staff will of course mean a public court case with the consequence that the ECS will be dragged directly into the centre of the corruption scandal that is rife at the school. Of course the social insurance office will also increase their scrutiny of the school and it's activities further.
