South Sudan crisis: Kiir gives Machar ultimatum to return to Juba

South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir has given the rebel leader and Vice President Riek Machar 48 hours to return to Juba and back to work or face unspecified consequences. This follows recent fighting between rival military factions two weeks ago.
There’s a fragile ceasefire in place but some South Sudanese are worried about the impact on the progress made towards implementing a 2015 peace agreement to end a two year civil war.

Al Jazeera’s Catherine Soi reports from Juba.
