On 24 October, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) issued a report about movement of returnees to Bentiu and Rubkona from Khartoum during the period from April to September 2019.

According to the report, DTM said 13820 South Sudanese arrived from Khartoum at Rubkona bus station. More 13282 individuals arrived in the period from June to 5 September, bringing the total number of arrivals from Sudan to 27,102 since 15 April 201

The IOM noted that not all of the returnees go to their home villages or areas adding that many of them heading to Bentiu Protection of Civilian (PoC) site.

Furthermore, a large proportion reported leaving Sudan due to various effects of the tensions there affecting livelihoods and food security, notably in East Darfur.

The report, however, says that 72.6% of the returnees go directly to their habitual residence. Generally, they say they had been forced to leave their areas and now after peace, they return to their home area.

However, some 11% of the said their return was triggered by the tensions in Sudan before the collapse of al-Bashir and after April 2019.

    Welcome back home. Peace will continue to work even though Riek’s group starts again to instigate violence by asking stupid things. What Riek wants is to destroy South Sudan army so that he can get opportunity to be a president. This is what chased him away from Juba in 2013. He needs to know he will be vice president when he comes back.

      South South,
      Nuers are returning to their ancestral homes and so do the rest except jienges still cowardly hiding outside their areas only waiting for free "nyamnyam". See them in Khartoum, Juba, Kampala, Kakuma, Nairobi and everywhere. In Australia and USA, the jienges make up the largest number of juveline criminals, thugs and gangsters just like their parents in SS. Worthless cockroaches.

        We need to do a lot of work to teach Bari in Juba to stop pooping on the streets. Most of the dirty parts of Juba are areas with Bari tribe. Bari=Dirty.

          Thank you. Its like a an adult talking to a toddler. The adult must stoop low to be able to talk. We Equatorians must bend low and talk the language of force and brutality they understand. It will be a while perhaps 50-100 years to have them grow to our level of civilized understanding.

          The Rhino,

          Mundari women are the big shame, they urinate standing in public. All civilized women sit down to urinate. You can’t believe to see Bari people making fun of them. Only animal females urinate standing.
