Afandy Joseph found unconscious at Juba graveyard!
The South Sudanese journalist Joseph Afandy Joseph Deng has been found dumped near a graveyard in Juba.
Joseph Afandy who his whereabouts was unknown to his family members since last week was uncovered on Friday unconscious with signs of torture on his body.
According to an eyewitness, men riding in a numberless white land cruiser hardtop, with tinted windows, kidnapped Afendi last week.
One of his colleagues named Ibrahim Awuol said Afendi phoned and informed him where he could be found dumped after disappearance. “We found him in a bad condition – beaten, and have dotted burned spots.”
Awuol confirmed saying, Afendy was taken for further medical examinations and now he is receiving treatment at Juba Teaching Hospital.
However, Afandy was arrested in December last year after he wrote an article criticizing the ruling party SPLM in ‘El-tabeer’ Arabic paper, which was shutdown, by the security organs in Juba.
Security apparatus later released him after two months of detention following plea from family members, colleagues and friends.
