The peace talks between the Government and Uganda and the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) are faltering following demands by the LRA to move the venue of the negotiations from Juba and appoint a new mediator.
Around 8 February, the LRA was spotted crossing the main road Yambio - Nzara - Ezo - Tambura some 20 kilometres west of Nzara. This is a clear shift from their previous westward route, now quite deep into Sudanese territory, about 50 kilometres north of the border.
Floods in the Horn of Africa-High vulnerability of populations-Major floods have recently hit parts of Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia. Estimated numbers of the affected populations are changing rapidly because assessments are still on-going, and new flooding is still occurring.
The major impacts of the floods are the destruction of assets, shelter and infrastructure including roads, contamination of water, destruction of farmlands and deaths of animals. This leads to a disrupted food supply, increase food insecurity, and risk to disease for both humans and animals.
The security situation in South Sudan remained relatively stable. Effective 7 September, security Phase IV areas in Equatoria reverted to Phase III. The whole of South Sudan is now in Phase III. Armed escort is however still required in the ex-Phase IV areas between the line Gondokoro-Ngangala-Torit-Amatong- Tsertenya and the line Juba-Lafon-Kimatong-Chukudum-Lotukei.
Complications have arisen in the ongoing Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) peace process as a result of UPDF deployment into South Sudan.
The general security situation in South Sudan is relatively stable although sporadic security incidents have recently become more frequent. On 28 August, a group of students in Juba stormed the Headquarters of the Central Equatoria State's Ministry of Education, smashing office equipment and private and government vehicles. Some officials of the Ministry sustained heavy beating and injuries.
The security situation in Central, Eastern and Western Equatoria States is relatively stable. An assessment mission to Yambio and Tambura in Western Equatoria confirmed that the two areas are calm and are now pegged to UN Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS) security phase 3 level 2.
In Juba, the population has gone up dramatically and consequently crimes of theft, robbery and arson as well as traffic contraventions have increased significantly.
The security situation in south Sudan remained relatively stable. For the first time, Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) elements crossed the White Nile river and attacked an area on the Yei-Juba road. Attacks by the LRA have been taking place fairly regularly around Juba in the last few months, but always to the east of the White Nile.
The security situation in south Sudan remained relatively stable. Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) attacks on the civilian population reportedly continued in Eastern Equatoria.
