The Ugandan government has written to their South Sudan counterparts to raise concern over the spate of killings to Ugandans plying their business in the continent’s youngest nation.
Four Ugandan drivers were on Sunday shot dead by unknown gunmen on Yei-Juba highway while heading to Juba for business.
In a statement released yesterday, the Foreign Affairs Ministry said they were shocked by the recent developments in South Sudan.
Government, however, urged Ugandans to exercise caution as they travel to South Sudan and beware of violent crime including carjacking, shootings, ambushes, assaults, robberies and kidnaps.
There have been efforts to ensure peace prevails in the area through negotiations between the two governments.
