WATCH: Kenyans stranded in S.Sudan ask for President's help

12 July 2016, 14:35

Nairobi - Kenyans stuck in South Sudan have called for President Uhuru Kenyatta to help evacuate them from the conflict hit nation.

According to Nairobi News, desperate Kenyans who are stranded in Juba, South Sudan have turned to social media to appeal to the government to evacuate them as violence continues to rock the world’s youngest nation.

More than 300 people are reported to have been killed in renewed fighting in South Sudan’s capital Juba, with first Vice President Riek Machar’s spokesman saying the country was officially back to war. 

The United States has  allegedly airlifted  its citizens from the volatile country amid claims that a civil  war is looming.

"Citizen TV reported that on an update that was posted on social media today, a Kenyan man wrote that he was in communication with his relatives living in Southern Sudan. He wrote how the relatives were desperately asking  to be brought back home amid fears that a war would break out soon.

South Sudan  became independent from Sudan in 2011. Their independence came after a civil war that took years to cease and even with their indipendence, the country never quite got to its feet.

BBC reports that gunfire and large explosions rent the air all over the city with hundreds of people reported dead in clashes between forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and those who have allegiance to the Vice-president Riek Machar.

Machar was the South Sudanese vice president from independence in 2011 till July 2013, when South Sudan’s president Salva Kiir sacked him together with the rest of the Cabinet.
