Students from South Sudan’s University of Juba took to the streets Monday to protest against the worsening economic crisis and the rebellion ravaging the country.

The students slammed President Salva Kiir for failing to stop the conflict and tame the high cost of living.

They said the government had failed and was on the verge of collapse.

The students marched out the university campus to the National Parliament to deliver their petition to the lawmakers.

Official comment

However, police spokesman Daniel Justin denied knowledge of the matter when contacted for official comment.

South Sudan has been in a crisis since it got independence in 2011, following secession from Sudan.
