The East African - - NEWS -

SOUTH SUDAN: The govern­ment has started reg­is­tra­tion of all for­eign na­tion­als liv­ing in the coun­try in a bid to de­ter cross-bor­der crime.

“We are ask­ing for­eign­ers to come to the des­ig­nated cen­tres for screen­ing,” said John Akot Ma­luth, head of the Na­tion­al­ity and Im­mi­gra­tion de­part­ment in the Min­istry of In­te­rior.

Over two mil­lion South Su­danese are liv­ing as refugees in neigh­bour­ing coun­tries since con­flict erupted in De­cem­ber 2013. South Sudan's war­ring par­ties signed the re­vi­talised peace agree­ment in Septem­ber, ush­er­ing in nor­malcy and fresh hopes of peace.
