Over one thousand returnees arrived in Juba on Tuesday from Sudan. The Chairman of the Relief and Rehabilitation Commission, Duer Tut Duer, told Radio Miraya that they are planning to repatriate the last batch of returnees from Sudan by air.

However Duer said the commission is concerned over the living condition of the rest of the returnees who are still stranded in Kosti.

He added that his commission was working hard to bring the remaining returnees before the expiration of the memorandum of understanding signed between the north and south. This agreement which ensures that South Sudanese living in Sudan are treated as nationals will expire in March next year.
