SOUTH SUDAN : Humanitarian Snapshot (December 2016) During December, displacement was reported in Central Equatoria, Western Equatoria, Western Bahr el Ghazal, Upper Nile and Unity. In Central Equatoria, new arrivals, mainly from Yei and Morobo, brought the number of displaced people in Kajo-Keji to more than 30,000 by the end of the month, while clashes in Tindalo area near Terekeka caused the local population to flee. In Western Equatoria, small-scale displacement was reported in and around Mundri East due to clashes in Kediba. The refugee outflow from the Equatorias continued, with more than 60,000 refugees arriving in Uganda during December. In Western Bahr El Ghazal, insecurity in and around Wau town caused additional people to seek refuge in the protected site and collective centres. In Upper Nile, fighting in Maban caused the temporary displacement of over 8,000 local community members and about 10,000 refugees from Doro camp. Separately, several thousand people departed Malakal Protection of Civilians (PoC) site, primarily for family reunification, while displacement continued to be reported as a result of ongoing clashes in and around Nassir. In Unity, there were reports of displacement due to clashes, including in Koch, Gandor, Padeah and Dablual, and of new arrivals at the Bentiu PoC site. New cholera cases were confirmed in Panyiajar County, bringing the number of counties affected by the outbreak country-wide in 2016 to 10.
