A total of 61,573 South Sudanese refugees have arrived in Uganda since 16 December 2013, following tensions within the South Sudan ruling party, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM). This has led to thousands of IDPs fleeing to neighbouring counties since December and high numbers of refugees arriving in Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia.
