South Sudan, Kenya agrees to resolve border disputes

JUBA, 17TH FEBRUARY 2023- South Sudan and Kenya have agreed to resolve Nadapal and Nakodok border disputes following recent communal violence between Taposa of South Sudan and Turkana of Kenya.

Last week, the government of South Sudan delegated a high-level committee to meet with the Kenyan President, Dr. William Ruto to address the ongoing border tension.

The committee on Friday briefed President Salva Kiir Mayardit on the outcome of the meeting,with the Kenyan authorities.

The Minister of Presidential Affairs, Dr. Barnaba Marial Benjamin said President Kiir directed the Governor of Eastern Equatoria State to liaise with Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation to hold dialogue with Turkana County Governor.

On the same note, the Governor of Eastern Equatoria State, Louis Lobong Lojore said they would hold a dialogue with the Governor of Turkana to address the situation between the two communities in order to allow free movement and amicably share grazing land and water points across the border.

In 2009, Kenya and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement, the ruling party of what was then southern Sudan, signed an agreement to establish a temporary border control post at Nadapal to facilitate cross-border movement of people, goods and services.
