South Sudan’s Juba airport reopens South Sudan Ambassador to Kenya Chol Ajongo said the “situation is calm” in Juba.

South Sudan says the main airport in Juba has been reopened following violence that left 272 people dead.

The airport resumed operations after President Salva Kiir declared a ceasefire on Monday evening following pressure from regional leaders.

The country’s ambassador to Kenya Chol Ajongo told reporters in Nairobi on Tuesday that the “situation is now calm in Juba”, saying those who were behind the violence had been “dislodged from the city and are being dissuaded from harming innocent civilians in residential areas.”

Dr Machar recently agreed to form a transitional government of national unity following three years of violence between his forces and those of President Kiir.
