Diary of an Adventure

Juba Adventures

Security in Juba Town remains quiet with sporadic shooting, attributed to drunkenness.

The conflict areas around Malakal, Bhor and Bentiu haven’t changed significantly and reportedly, there is additional support for the Pro-government forces from Uganda. This may be a reflection of the position stated to the media by the lead negotiator that although the release of political detainees remains a key issue that has still to be resolved, there are signs of a truce.

It seems as though taxis have been released from some holding pen, flooding the streets of Juba Town with their unpredictable, chaos. Mixed with aggressive 4×4’s, laden with soldiers, wielding weapons, racing down the centre of the road, being on the road has again become the most dangerous place to be.

UN House in lockdown, with IDP’s being rushed through the gates as they are opened for us to enter.

Dust driving me nuts.
