At least two prisoners have been confirmed injured during a prisoners’ strike in Wau’s main central prison.
An anonymous source told the press that the Friday strike was triggered by the sentencing of two prisoners to death as they prepared to leave the correctional facility.
A statement released to the press by the Central Prison Director Michael Potoka said that investigations into the incident are ongoing, saying a full statement will be released today.
“It is still difficult to have one of the injured prisoners out from jail since the other inmates have refused to allow wardens into the cells”, he said.
He added that his office was monitoring the situation until calm returns.
