He noted the stranded Sudanese in Ed Daein Locality have been facing difficulties since 2011.

“We are fed up with the security situation here, the area is becoming worse, because the Arab tribes who are from Ed Daein killed a South Sudanese citizen who was living in the area at night,” he explained.

He called on the national government in Juba and the humanitarian organizations to transport them to South Sudan as soon as possible.
