S Sudan rebels get up designated positions in Juba

S Sudan'south rebels are taking positions in the country'south capital, Juba, to prepare for the scheduled return of their boss later this mo after over two years of war.

They've set up camp in two designated sites in Juba as portion of process to safe the city for Riek Machar'south return and eventually reintegrate into the split army. Rebel common James Koang, who's overseeing the process, met with reporters today.

"We are coming for peace," said Khor Dabuol, a high school instructor who joined the rebellion after the war began. "We stayed all years in the bush, waiting, wanting food, so we arrive here presently we're very happy."

Over 1.300 rebel soldiers and more than 3.000 government troops will deploy in the city, according to a peace deal signed between Machar and President Salva Kiir latest year that installs the rebel boss as vice president.

Despite progress in Juba, Koang accused the government of violating the ceasefire in Western Bahr el Ghazal and Western Equatoria states recently.

Tens of thousands died in the war which began in Juba after fighting erupted between soldiers allied to Kiir and Machar and spread throughout the country.
