In a meeting chaired by the Deputy Minister of Interior Maj. Gen. Jadallah Wani, the meeting reviewed on old strategies that were earlier on set for night patrol in the capital aimed at curbing criminals.

“The meeting laid down more comprehensive strategies to cover the country’s capital, Juba,” said the State Radio.

The move came following rampant killing by unknown gunmen in the capital in which citizens have blamed government.

On Monday morning residents of Tarawa Residential area were shocked when two blood brothers were shot to death in their own house by unknown group of gunmen at night.

The killing which is part of several others in various parts of Juba compelled residents to protest against government effort in ensuring protection to the citizens against insecurity in the capital.

Hundreds of residents marched to the South Sudan national parliament in call for more efforts to avert the situation in the capital.

The Speaker of the parliament on Monday told citizens, parliament is scheduled to summon authorities responsible for ensuring security in the country including the Ministry of Interior.
