South Sudan’s First Vice-President Riek Machar and his wife, Defence Minister Angelina Teny, have recovered from Covid-19.
Local media has quoted a statement from Mr Machar’s office as saying that the Vice President had been discharged on Saturday having fully recovered.
Recall that the two tested positive two weeks ago.
The statement further said the two government officials have been discharged after the second coronavirus confirmation tests carried out on them returned negative.
“The two leaders are therefore expected to resume their daily active public office duties anytime soon, hopefully by Monday, 8 June, 2020,” part of the statement read.
