There has been a rise in murder cases in the new nation’s capital in recent months. However, the minister in charge of police, Alison Monani Magaya, in his public statements on TV in recent days has been assured that the situation was going to change.

The most publicized murder is the recent killing of a leading political commentator, Isaiah Abraham, who was shot in front of his house by unknown gunmen.

Magaya said the police was going to deploy more forces in and around Juba in order to contain the criminals who are behind the stealing, robbery and killing of people in the city.

Some of the criminals have already changed their hideouts far from the town centre to the outskirts of the city to try to avoid the police patrols. However, the new deployment which was launched two days ago directed the police forces to reach all the corners of the city.

There has been a general feeling that some elements of the police are conspiring with the criminals and are involved in perpetuating some of the crimes themselves.

Monani acknowledged the prevalence of bad elements within the police force but assured that his forces were now under serious scrutiny to identify the bad apples.

On Friday, police reported capturing a number of armed criminals in the areas of Gurei and Jebel Dinka west of Juba where some criminals have sought refuge in.

In the evening of Friday gun shots could be heard at 7pm in Gudele West area. A local eyewitnesses told Sudan Tribune that it was an exchange of fire between the patrolling police and criminals who resisted arrest in their hideouts. No casualties were known yet at the time of the report writing.

Juba residents are urged to give information to the police about the whereabouts of suspected criminals.

      Mister, sometimes you need to say more than seven words in order to make any sense! Just because you don’t know English to say more than what you have doesn’t mean you’re an idiot.

                If you know you can’t use your language here; you shouldn’t tell anyone here that you’re proud of your language. No one here asked you whether or not you’re proud of your language! When it comes to your idea of less talked. What would be the point of less talk if you can’t make it comprehensible to the readers?

    Get rid of illegal foreigners in Juba and all will be fine within days because half of these criminals are foreigners.
