August 6th 2018 (Nyamilepedia) – A care incident last evening in the South Sudanese capital Juba has left three people injured during the celebratory march that was conducted in welcoming of the peace signing agreement by South Sudan leaders in Khartoum.

After President Kiir and Opposition leader Dr. Riek Machar signed the final peace agreement in the Sudanese capital Khartoum on Sunday, hundreds of South Sudanese Juba residents took to the streets with cars to welcome the news.

When asked by the Nyamilepedia, one source confirmed that a speedy car succumbed into incident and overturned itself injuring three people.

“Yeah that’s true, it had happened last night during the celebrations in Juba Capital” the source told the Nyamilepedia this morning.

Another resident told the Nyamilepedia that the injuries were minor and the victims were seeking medication at the Juba Teaching Hospital since yesterday and had only left this morning.

South Sudan’s President, Salva Kiir Mayardiit, and opposition leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon on Sunday signed the long-awaited final peace agreement to end the five-year old conflict in South Sudan.

Other armed and non-armed opposition groups including the South Sudan Opposition Alliance (SSOA) and the SPLM Former Detainees who initially declined the agreement also signed the deal.
