The South Sudanese incumbent president has revealed that a possible attempted of coup d’état has been uncovered and neutralized. The revelation came following hours of gun-battle in the capital city of Juba early this week. “This was an attempted coup,” President Kiir said in a prepared statement, adding, “Your government is in full control of the security situation in Juba. The attackers fled and your forces are pursuing them. I promise you justice will prevail.” Forces loyal to the president had taken control of the capital city following the attempted coup and an uneasy calm prevails in Juba.
