Deng, attracting wild jubilations from thousands who converged at Dr Garang Mausoleum to mark the 3rd independence celebrations.

A 12-hours curfew (6pm to 6am local time) was imposed on Juba by President Salva Kiir on December 16 after the sporadic gunfire among Neur and Dinka in the elite presidential guards on 15th that resulted into the 6-month war.

The curfew was in April relaxed to six hours (11pm to 6am) when the UPDF and SPLA momentarily ruled out the possibility of rebels capturing Juba.

However, the curfew was again reviewed to 12 hours (6pm-6am) last week in a bid to boost security in the capital city.
