March 6th 2020 (Nyamilepedia) — South Sudanese and Ugandan authorities have temporarily shut their border crossing point at Nimule after passenger bus operators staged a demonstration to protest the beating of their colleague.

Bus drivers, most of whom operate transboundary vehicles, said on Friday that money changers at the border assaulted their colleague identified as Gabulyeri Ngabirano.

Mr Nyabirano operates Trinity Bus Service.

“This incident happened at 8.30am when all buses where cleared by the two borders, setting off for Juba,” Odocke Richard, Trinity conductor said.

“One of our passengers had a quarrel with a money changer inside the bus. When the driver intervened and stopped them from fighting, the two money changers turned on the driver and beat him up.”
