As a result of a government order, the Republic of South Sudan will move to Central Africa Time (UTC+02:00) at 00:00 AM local time on February 1, 2021.
Microsoft plans to release an update to support this time zone change; however, there is insufficient time to properly build, test, and release such an update before the change goes into effect. In the meantime, we recommend that individuals and organizations with devices in the Republic of South Sudan follow the interim guidance below.
Microsoft recommends that users temporarily set the time zone on their devices to “(UTC+2:00) Harare, Pretoria” on February 1, 2021 at 00:00. Selecting this time zone will ensure that devices reflect the correct local time. (Note: events that have occurred in the past, before the update, will not show correctly.)
This can be done in one of the two ways:
Select the Windows logo key, type "time zone", and select Change the time zone. From the time zone dropdown, select “(UTC+2:00) Harare, Pretoria”.
Navigate to Control Panel > Date and Time > Change time zone. From the time zone dropdown, select “(UTC+2:00) Harare, Pretoria”. Select OK to apply the change.
We recommend switching time zone settings to “(UTC+2:00) Juba” after the update from Microsoft has been released and installed.
