JUBA – A Ugandan lawmaker has claimed that there are no laws in South Sudan and that the South Sudanese people kill with impunity urging the government of Ugandan to evacuate Ugandan nationals in the country.
In a televised parliamentary session on Wednesday, member of the Ugandan parliament Gilbert Olanya said many Ugandan citizens who are stuck in Juba need to be evacuated because South Sudan has no laws to protect against killings.
“Juba is closed and sealed off,” the lawmaker who is not identified in the televised parliamentary seating said. “….people are not being allowed to leave Juba. What we need to hear from the minster, what are the strategies that they put in place to rescue Ugandans who are in Juba as per now?”
He said South Sudanese people kill with impunity and that there are no laws in South Sudan and that citizens of Uganda who are in South Sudan need to be evacuated by the Ugandan government as soon as possible.
“The South Sudanese, those people, they kill with impunity. There are no laws in South Sudan. What are we going to do for Ugandans who are stuck in Juba today and tomorrow?” the lawmaker asked.
