Shoot thieves, says Kiir

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD - ANA

AS THE world’s new­est coun­try South Su­dan con­tin­ues to bat­tle in­se­cu­rity and a civil war, Pres­i­dent Salva Kiir has or­dered the coun­try’s po­lice to shoot rob­bers dead, in­clud­ing those who break into shops at night.

The Su­dan Tribune re­ported on Sun­day that Kiir gave the or­der and urged the po­lice to en­force se­cu­rity and pro­tect cit­i­zens.

He was speak­ing at an of­fi­cial func­tion in the cap­i­tal Juba on Satur­day night.

“Your job as po­lice is to elim­i­nate the thieves who break into shops at night, shoot them when­ever you see them try­ing to break into shops,” or­dered Kiir.
