Twich East attack: Wounded recovering at Juba military hospital

Authorities at Juba military hospital say people who were wounded during a recent attack in Twic East County of Jonglei State are recovering well. 


The Deputy Director at the military hospital, Dr. Arkangelo Ayiga, says two of the patients died, but the rest are responding well to treatment.  Ayiga says the military hospital is handling complicated cases.


“We got 16 and we lost 2 out of them, but the rest who are around are doing well,” he said.


“Those who were brought here have complicated cases because they have gunshot in the abdomen, chest and on the heads and broken limbs,” he said. 


“Almost all of them are stable now, because the time they were brought to the hospital our doctors responded immediately gave them the necessary treatment and operations.”


At least 88 people, including women and children were wounded when armed men believed to be loyal to renegade David Yau Yau, attacked two villages in Twic East County two weeks ago.

It is with this emphasis that the Embassy of the Republic of South Sudan in Washington DC has decided to go digital in hopes of providing basic information and answers to some of the frequently asked questions regarding South Sudan.

South Sudan is ready to make its imprint in the digital world and the launch of this website is a major step towards achieving that goal.
