South Sudan’s Minister for Defense Kuol Manyang Juuk has been discharged from hospital in the Kenyan capital Nairobi after treatment on Wednesday.

He was admitted to Nairobi Hospital a week ago with high blood pressure.

His relative told Radio Tamazuj that the country’s defense minister has responded to treatment and he will go back home soon.

Army spokesman in Juba Lul Ruai Koang said recently he had “no information” that the country’s defense minister had been hospitalized in Nairobi.
