Løj took over office from Hilde Johnson as the UN Special Representative of the Secretary General to South Sudan.

Upon her arrival in South Sudan’s capital Juba, Løj said she would prioritise supporting thousands of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) across the country, as well as the strict implementation of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) mandate.
