2,000 South Sudanese stuck at border to reach home

Two thousand South Sudanese who were stranded in the border town of Renk are being assisted by the International Organization for Migration to return home.

IOM has agreed to make available four barges on Sunday to transport them to their villages in Upper

The returnees had been living in camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) and in settlements in and around Khartoum for many years.

They were on their way to the South ahead of the country's independence on 9 July but got stuck at the border.

Jumbe Omari Jumbe of the IOM says the agency will help them reach their final destination.
