Kenya has threatened that it might impose sanctions on South Sudan's leaders over the civil unrest witnessed in the world's youngest nation.
The Kenya's National Assembly Defence and foreign Relations Committee accused South Sudan's leader of frustrating the recently signed peace deal aimed at ending years of civil turmoil.
The national assembly committee said it will propose a motion to have assets of South Sudan leaders frozen saying they are the ones perpetrating conflict in their nation while their families seek refuge in foreign nations including Kenya.
South Sudan leaders have been accused of investing assets worth millions of US dollars while their country is burning in civil unrest.
Freezing their assets is the only way to stem down their financial muscle for those perpetrating war in Juba, the committee members agreed.
The committee members also called on East Africa Community to exercise authority and take action against South Sudan warlords who are behind renewed fighting in Juba that has left hundreds of people dead and thousands displaced since the signing of the peace agreement in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 2015.
Separately UNSC has threated to impose sanctions on South Sudan government.
