The South Sudan’s People Defense Forces and the South Sudan National Police Services on Saturday beefed up security checks around Juba in preparation for the upcoming festive season.

 Maj.Gen Daniel Justin Buolo, the spokesman for the national police services said all organized forces have been deployed in Juba to improve security.

“We are approaching Christmas, yesterday we gathered our forces, we talkd to them and we deployed them in town, this deployment is for public safety, it is about Christmas and New Year security,” Buolo told The Juba Echo on Sunday in Juba.

Buolo said that the public needs to be very vigilante and report any suspected criminals to the nearest police.

“During Christmas people are very active going to the market to buy goods and some thieves are also very active, our presence will deter them, if there are areas suspected to have arms there is no doubt we will search those areas,” he said.
