Trinity Holdings has gained extensive traction in South Sudan’s oil sector since its incorporation in October 2010. In March 2013, it created Trinity Energy, principally as a vehicle for its refined products distribution business. In December 2014, Trinity Holdings, majority-owned by local businessman Akol Emmanuel Ayii, created two further companies: Trinity Oil Services and Trinity Inter-Trade. Both are 90/10 partnerships between Ayii, who has close to ties to President Salva Kiir, and Indian businessman Richard Raja.
