South Sudan’s Police Service on Wednesday afternoon called for calm in
Juba town saying police are in full control of the town. The police
refuted rumors that fighting is going to take place in Juba today.

“We have directed our security organs especially the police
administration in Jubek state to look for those who are spreading this
false information should be arrested. People should stay calm in
