MODERATOR The rumor was first heard in Juba on Tuesday and transferred to a refugee settled at Ocea zone in Rhino camp settlement on the same date at 3:15 through a telephone communication from his relative working with the South Sudan government in Juba.
The National Salvation Front issued a press release early yesterday which the government denied. But overwhelming evidence from different local trusted sources on the ground proved there had been some clashes in lo’bonok 100 kilometers south of juba.
