The number of South Sudanese fleeing tensions in Moyo district on the Ugandan side of the border has risen from 170 to 2,000

Report
Miraya FM

Kajo-Keji County Commissioner Henry Kala says more people crossed the border after fresh violence broke out last night.

Kala: “The situation again has worsened; these people are burning houses as I speak. Seventeen houses are burnt and one church and our population coming now from Jalle and also Litoba has gone to 2,000 and they are still coming. They are settled near a primary school in Jalle. You find these people are going back, collecting their luggage. It is really a misery to see small children running.”
