Central Equatoria State Minister of Information says Ugandan the government has promised that it will protect South Sudanese living in Moyo District in northern part of the country.

He says the Ugandan government also says it will protect South Sudanese children who are studying in different parts of Uganda both in boarding and day schools.

Suba Samuel Manase told Eye Radio’s Dawn program that both governments have expressed commitment to protect the civilians who are living along the border of the two countries.

“We must use joint security patrol to keep the South Sudan business men’s properties in Uganda and also the lives of the children at school in Uganda. The following day when we were coming out from there we got the information that each school was guarded by two policemen to provide security for our children and even shops and business were guarded.” Suba said.

The Information Minister urged people not to panic because the governments of the two countries have formed a boarder verification team to demarcate the real boarder between Uganda and South Sudan.

Last week the Police Inspector -Generals from both countries met in Moyo District in northern Uganda to discuss the issue that let to clashes between two boarder communities.
