Authorities in South Sudan’ Western Lakes state, have imposed a curfew in the capital, Rumbek from 7:00pm to 7:00am [local time] every day.
The move, a senior state official said, is part of a new security measure aimed at controlling revenge killings and lootings in Rumbek town.
The state council of ministers, in a security briefing to the governor, said Rumbek was to be divided into four zones. Each zone has a commander to quell down insecurity.
The council of minister also sanctioned travelers and those who often walked at night to avoid risks during curfew time.
