Storyline

In South Sudan, a convoy travels from Wau to Bentiu, navigating a challenging route marked by conflict and the effects of climate change. A three-day mission is escorted by Mongolian peacekeepers serving with the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) and manned by a diverse group of drivers.

The aim is to deliver crucial fuel supplies necessary for ongoing peacekeeping efforts in an area cut off in all directions, except one, by flooding and border conflicts.

SOUNDBITE (English) Lieutenant-Colonel Uuganbaatar Khurelbat, Mongolian peacekeeper, UNMISS:

“Our mission is to escort these annual UNMISS fuel trucks from Wau to Bentiu. So, we are escorting them as well as providing force protection for them, because, there is, the security situation is not so good in some areas. So, last month there are [were] four drivers—civilian drivers—killed. So, we are providing force protection to make sure they are safe.”

The journey highlights the practical challenges of operating in such an environment, including security risks and the logistics of moving supplies through damaged infrastructure.

SOUNDBITE (English) Fuad Abdul Seif, Somali refugee and truck driver, Bentiu, South Sudan:

“Driving without UNMISS protection is very risky. It is unsafe because they used to kill us every time, every journey, every convoy. CUT TO Even [on] the last trip, they killed two drivers on the journey. We buried them on the road. We didn't get the chance to take back the bodies [to] where they belong to.”

Truck drivers brave daily dangers on South Sudanese roads, navigating through unstable regions, facing illegal checkpoints, and risking armed robbery. The protection provided by UNMISS is essential for their safety. As thousands of lives depend on the supplies they deliver for peacekeeping, humanitarian, and government services, the dedication of these drivers is pivotal. UNMISS continues its efforts to safeguard these convoys, ensuring the well-being and safety of all involved.
