We started receiving reports of heavy fighting in the South Sudan capital Juba early today morning that started after a coup attempt Every body here is very scared, I am scared too because I am a foreigner here. We also received reports that Juba airport is closed which means we can’t fly to Juba and then connect to Uganda. Army trucks are heading to Juba from Rumbek town where my colleague and I are right now and we also receiving reports of truck moving from other states towards Juba. We are not sure if we will be evacuated because we are receiving reports that Rumbek airport is also closed for now. Lets see what happens later in the day. The country marked red in this map of Africa is South Sudan which is Africa’s newest state after breaking away from Sudan.
Sending my love and greetings from South Sudan
