Fuel Crisis Hits South Sudan: Kenyan And Ugandan Fuel Truck's Drivers Fears For Their Life's

South Sudan is currently facing a very huge shortage of fuel after the fuel trucks from other countries like Kenya and Uganda delayed the distribution of fuel into the country.

Many fuel stations have run out of fuel as motorists line up on the station's waiting for fuel i.e Trinity Petro Station. From the beginning of this month, one litre of petro shooted to 550 South Sudanese Pounds (SSP) from 330 SSP, amount that many citizens could not afford.

The crisis emanated from the killings of Kenyan truck driver's and burning their truck's along the Juba Nimule Road, the road mostly used by motorists entering the country. Many truck driver's are still stranded in Elugu as issue of security deepens. Due to this, Kenya and Uganda vowed never to move more goods and services until the issue of security is addressed and amicable solutions reached.

South Sudan has for a long time been under conflicts emanating from the differences between the sitting the President Salvar Kiir and Vice President Riek Machal. However, the two later vowed to work together for the sake of the country. Citizens now want the government through the two leaders to act with speed and rescue them.
