“Effective immediately and until 6:30 a.m. Monday, April 23, 2018, the Embassy’s curfew has been temporarily changed from 8:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.,” partly reads the embassy’s statement issued on Friday.

The embassy, in the brief statement, also appealed to US citizens in the country to be cautious and closely monitor the security situation.

It further appealed to US citizens to always carry proper identification, including their passport with a valid South Sudan visa.

“Following incidents this week of armed altercations in the Luri district, approximately eight miles west of Juba, there has been heightened screening of vehicles and people at security checkpoints around Juba,” further stressed the embassy’s statement.

Clashes broke out west of Juba between government troops and an unknown armed group, in violation of a cessation of hostilities agreement signed by the nation’s warring factions.

    This dale statement is not what is expected of the US Embassy in South Sudan! What is expected is serious condemnation of resumption of fighting by SPLA-IO rebels near Luri, Abiemnhom, Pibor, and Akobo, which violates COH. Is the US Embassy not condemning because it is rebels on offensive?

        Some of those unknown groups fighting in Luri are government troops rebelling against the poisoning of SPLA Chief of staff ordered by the tribal leader, Kiir al Awiir. More of those unknown groups are already within Juba city limit not far or even within Kiir’s compound and it is only a matter of time the savages shall start killing themselves.
