November 9, 2016 (RUMBEK) – The 24 South Sudanese youth arrested by Kenyan police at a wedding gathering in the capital, Nairobi on Thursday have been released.

The group was accused of holding a public gathering without notifying the Police.

Their release came after the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) and South Sudan chiefs intervened.

Daniel Yor Deng, one of those detainees, described the three days in detention as a “tough one”.

In an earlier interview with Sudan Tribune, Andrew Agok, a South Sudanese embassy official in Kenya, blamed the youth holding an illegal gathering.

“You all know that our relationship with the Kenyan government is in excellent stages since their general [head of United Nations peacekeepers was sacked from South Sudan,” said Agok.

“Our cooperation should continue. If you abuse the law then the law will have a solution [for you]”, he stressed.

Last week, Kenya deported South Sudan rebel leader, Riek Machar’s spokesperson from Nairobi, despite UNHCR’s appeal to halt the process.

    Agok,
    The fact must be told, Kenyan polices are thieves, what law are you talking about? those youths were not break even a single law of Kenya, they were celebrating their whatever at home not in the town. What make them to be law breakers? this is constant Kenyan business they took money from youths.

      @ Agot; yes some police and not all are thieves but the law is the law and for you to hold any party even in your home you need to notify not only the police but national environment management authority because of noise and as a matter of fact you need to notify your neighbours of the same so don’t be too emotional of something you don’t have facts about....

    Kenya slight back to the rule of former President Daniel Arap Moi. His messed mopped up by Mwai Kibaki but the puppet of Moi trying hard to spread that mess again. we were used to called Garang and looted by police. If happened these youth to be Nuer I think they would have deported. I think Kenyatta has deal with Taban and that is money and his KCB.
