South Sudan Relief and rehabilitation Commission or SSRRC say nationals who had fled the country’s conflict are spontaneously returning. Returnees are mostly coming from Uganda as well as Kenya, even though security concerns are still at large in the Equatorias.

SSRRC say they have so far registered thousands of families. They believe the number could even be bigger. They claim some returning families do not show up for registrations. Lilian Ocho has more from Eastern part of South Sudan – Torit.
