Police Open Fire On Protestors After a Sudanese Governor's Convoy Knocked Down A Kid

Irate residents in Turkana county at the Kolobeyei settlement who were holding protests after a convoy of a governor from neighboring county South Sudan knocked down a kid faced the wrath of the police who opened fire to disperse them.

The governor's motorcade left the child with serious injuries which is understood to have angered area residents who swung into action demanding for action to be taken against the politician as they staged demonstrations along the border.

A video has emerged showing the angered area residents outside the police station chanting only for their demands to escalate into a running battle after the police opened fire to restore sanity in the area.

The convoy that knocked the child is understood to belong to the Governor of Eastern Equatorial state of South Sudan Louise Lobong Lojore and this is the second time in a span of less than a year that a governor's convoy from South Sudan has been involved in an accident.

The Kolobeyei settlement scheme was established to cater for the high number of refugees trickling in the country from Juba and is a home to over 100,000 families, the majority of who are refugees from South Sudan, Ethiopia and Western Uganda.
