• South Sudan strengthens security in the country; launches a closed-circuit television (CCTV) and drone security system on Monday to help improve safety in the capital Juba where crime is on the increase.

11 cameras and two drones have been installed in Juba. A project manager at Global Group, the Israeli company behind the project Kfir Shilder said.

“It will be safe for everybody residing in Juba. Those who snatch things…in the streets can now be traced; they cannot get away from their crime”. President Salva Kiir said at the system’s launch.

Major General Edward Dimitri Lokak, director of the government’s Emergency Call Centre & CCTV, said the system would help “improve our work to detect crimes and especially the crimes committed by those criminals using weapons.”
