Kenyans advised against S Sudan travel


Kenya has issued a travel advisory warning its citizens against travelling to areas in South Sudan where armed conflicts and inter-ethnic violence have occurred within the last six months, privately-owned Capital FM website reports.

According to the Foreign Affairs Ministry, the advisory applies specifically to parts of the Greater Upper Nile Region and in particular “Bieh, Latjoor, Akobo, Jonglei, Northern Liech states including sections of Maiwut, Eastern Nile and Boma states and Yei River State”.

The ministry also urged Kenyans living in South Sudan to register with the embassy in the capital Juba immediately.

The advisory comes after two pilots, who were detained in South Sudan for one monthafter their plane crashed, were released after the payment of compensation.
