A joint security team has been sent out by South Sudanese authorities to map out the hideouts of bandits terrorizing Kenyan and Ugandan drivers on its main highway from Uganda.
It comes a day after Kenyan truckers suspended cargo transport services to South Sudan after two of their drivers were killed and trucks torched by unknown criminals on Saturday on the Juba-Nimule highway.
South Sudan’s National Police Service spokesman Gen Daniel Justine said a joint security team, composed of military intelligence and police officers, have been sent out on Monday to track down the bandits.
The deputy foreign affairs and international cooperation minister, Deng Dau Deng after meeting with Kenyan diplomats in Juba, has promised safety for foreign drivers.
