Kiir urge citizens living under UN protection to return home
May 21st 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan President, Salva Kiir Mayardiit, has urged citizens living in UN protection sites to return home citing improved security situation.
Kiir was speaking to newly appointed governors of Southern Liech and Ruweng on Friday at the State House in the capital Juba.
The President said the IDPs including but not limited to those in Juba have been leaving and returning to the POC sites in Juba without any threats to their life suggesting that they have nothing to fear.
He urged them to leave the camps so that they can rebuild their lives and return to their previous self-reliance.
“They need to go back home and resume their lives, because in the past it was not the UN that fed them. Each one had a cow or a goat. Outside the camp they can cultivate, and one can go fishing, and live a decent life,” Kiir told the governor.
“So please, encourage them to get out of UNMISS camp by appealing to them,” he added.
