The 8th anniversary of South Sudan independence celebrated in was so peaceful across the country.

There were only a few reported cases of “Nigga” boys fighting among themselves.

Major General Daniel Justin, the police spokesperson said that the police swung into action and they managed to handle the situation.

A report from the states also indicated that all went well and everyone enjoyed the day in their cities and villages.

Residents who spoke to Juba Monitor expressed joy that there were no cases of gun shots across the country.

“All was fine till evening when this “Niggas” tried to fight each other and we went there and controlled them, otherwise everything went on well, the night patrol was also ok,” said Maj. Gen Daniel.

The only unfortunate part of the celebration was an incident where a driver lost control at the Seventh Day Road round about. He escaped unhurt but his vehicle was damaged.

“The driver of the car that got the accident is at Juba Teaching Hospital. Otherwise the celebrations went on till morning with no cases of shooting because our patrol teams were on the watch, “Maj. Gen. Daniel added.

Joseph Juma, the Manager of Nyakuron Cultural Centre, said the celebration went on peacefully.

The streets of Juba were calm on the 9th of July with several movements of revelers checking out different hangout joints.
