Rwanda peacekeepers(Rwanbat3) deployed in UN mission in South Sudan(UNMISS) escorted Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in a UN Relocation program from Risk Zones in UN Tomping to UN-House in Juba-3.
People are relocated to a safe area. The UNMISS took this initiative from last week’s experience when it rained at night and most IDPs were totally exposed to floods at UN Tomping Camp.
“We are happy that IDPs are being relocated to a safe zone. The decision was taken to protect them against floods during this rainy season in Juba.
Our contingent has, as is the norm, taken the initiative to find ideal solutions including relocation, thanks to UNMISS authorities that considered this option”, said RDF spokesperson, Brig Gen Joseph Nzabamwita.
The relocation kicked off on 12 March 2014 and is still going on for the nearest next days until all 13 thousand IDPs will be relocated from flooded zones to better place.
