A video that surfaced online shows the moment the current president of South Sudan, General Salva Kiir Mayardit, was seen arriving from Djibouti with a 50+ car entourage.
The President’s car entourage included over 15 police trucks, white full-size SUVs, G-wagons, and other rides that were accompanying the president to his destination.
The video that surfaced online has enraged a lot of people, as many have condemned the president’s actions, saying it’s unnecessary to have that number of security detail and cars following one person.
