Relatives say a five-year old girl and a man in 30s died at the scene when the bus overturned several times shortly after Mogala, on the way to Bor. Three people sustained injuries and were taken to Juba for treatment.

The driver has been detained by police in Juba.

A car traveling from Bor to Juba also overturned on Sunday leaving three people injured.

The Juba-Bor 192km bus fee is between 100SSP [US$23] and 120SSP [US$28]. The 120km trip from Bor to Panyagor, the headquarters of Twic East county, is 150SSP [US$35]. To continue from Panyagor to Poktap in Duk county costs an additional 70SSP [US$16].

Despite the increased cost of travel during the holiday season, hundreds of buses are being hired for the celebration of festivals in villages.

In Bor, the capital of Jonglei state, Christmas Eve and Day are particularly busy.

Churches organise parades in which people sing gospel songs and march through the town and take part in overnight prayers in local churches.

The town is also busy as people do their last minute food and present shopping.

        It’s tragic! We from the Nissan dealers in Hartford CT advise every new car owner to drive carefully and to stop driving if he feels tired. I explain to everyone that life is important and with a little caution they can avoid a tragic event like this one.

      This is what happened when there is no regulation of speed limit; any drive can drive at any speed he or she wishes and that proved to be dangerous. There is no way a car can rolled over many time at a regular speed limit. The drives knew, it’s not a well-developed road but still uses irresponsible high speed.

      I am sorry, I know how it is to be involved in a crash because I also was involved in a car accident, but I was lucky. I had to change my car because it was too damaged to repair it. I bought my car from UPAP because they had the best offer. Since then I haven’t had an accident because now I more careful at the wheel.

    It part of the four (4) billions stolen were to be invested in road, the whole of South Sudan would have been connected now. But Alas, the self service politicians in our country care only about their stomachs. Forgive them father for they do not know what they are doing. It is good that the oil is not being exported since nobody benefit from the oil, except a few greedy people.
