Khartoum. Six journalists have been arrested here after a video surfaced in the North African country of South Sudan. Indeed, in a video, we see the president of South Sudan urinating in his pants. During the national anthem at an event in December, a black stain was seen spreading across President Salva Kiir’s gray pants and a large wet mark (President of South Sudan Pee) formed on the floor .
According to Reuters news agency, the 71-year-old president stood for the national anthem at the road commissioning event. Although the video was never shown on television, it later went viral on social media. Patrick Ouet, president of the South Sudan Journalists Union, said journalists working for the state-owned South Sudan Broadcasting Corporation were arrested on Tuesday and Wednesday.

He said he had doubts about how the video of the president urinating came to the fore. He named the journalists as cameramen Joseph Oliver and Mustafa Usman, video editor Victor Lado, contributors Jacob Benjamin and Cherbek Ruben and Joval Toombe.
Salva Kiir has been the president of South Sudan since 2011, when it gained independence. Government officials have repeatedly denied rumors circulating on social media that he was not feeling well. Significantly, the country has been embroiled in conflict over the past decade. Patrick Oyett further stated that we are all concerned as those who have been arrested may be held in detention for a long time. South Sudanese law stipulates that people are detained for a maximum of 24 hours before being brought before a judge.
