South Sudan tightens security ahead of festive season

South Sudan police has tightened security across the war-torn East African nation ahead of the forthcoming festive season.

The deputy police spokesperson, James Dak Carol said security forces have been deployed to various strategic areas in the country.

Dak emphasised that the operation will be a joint security venture and urged members of the general public to remain vigilant during the coming days as crimes are usually high during festive season.

In June this year, the South Sudanese President Salva Kiir instructed joint police units to shoot dead robbers, including those breaking into shops at night.

President Kiir stressed that it is the responsibility of the police to provide security and protection to the citizens and eliminate crimes.

Kiir’s administration has been struggling to address the rising crime rate in the national capital, Juba, since the civil war broke out in December 2013.
