Whit Monday follows Pentecost, which commemorates the descent of the Holy Ghost upon Jesus Christ's disciples according to Christian tradition. Some churches in the United States organize Whit Monday prayer rallies, which include prayers and street marches. It also marks the birth of the Christian Church. Although it is not certain when Pentecost was first observed by Christians, it may have been early as the first century. Pentecost occurs roughly seven weeks after Easter Sunday, or 50 days after Easter, including Easter Day. Like Pentecost, Whit Monday is movable because it is determined by the Easter date.

Residents of Aweil town in Northern Bahr el Ghazal State say although they are aware of the Covid pandemic, they are not able to follow the preventive measures by the government to contain its spread due to a lack of basic services. The government of South Sudan recently announced stringent measures, including putting a halt to public gatherings and functions, to contain the spread of the virus. But efforts to mitigate the soaring infection rates are however facing a major setback as many people across the country ignore or simply do not have the luxury of abiding by the preventive measures. Representing a group of women queuing at a crowded water point in Aweil Town, Abur Garang, a young lady told Radio Tamazuj that they lack sufficient water points forcing them to gather at the only functional borehole in her area.
