June 24, 2011 (BOR) - Hundreds of people have been killed and a large number of cattle stolen in Pibor county in South Sudan’s largest state Jonglei following clashes between the Murle and Lou Nuer ethnic groups the county’s commissioner says.

Residents of Duk Padiet stand near the airstrip two days after the village was attacked on 22 September, 2009 by the neighboring Lou Nuer tribe. (Photo UN)The vast and swampy territory of Jonglei is shared by the several ethnic groups mainly Bor Dinka, the Lou Nuer, and Murle who clashed during the past over cattle, water and pasturage. The long years of war in the South also affected these tribal groups and they supported different parties.

In March 2009, over 453 people were killed and 120 women abducted during attacks carried out by thousands of armed people of the Lou Nuer who attacked 17 settlement in Pibor. In retaliation, the Murle assaulted Nuer villages in Akobo county, killing more than 250 people, and abducting more than 30 children.

The UN agencies estimate that the attacks and counter-attacks of 2009 forced some 26,000 people to flee their homes in Pibor and Akobo counties.

Pibor’s commissioner Akot Mazee said that thousands of armed young men from Akobo, Ayod, Duk, Nyirol, Twic East and Uror counties attacked his county on 15 June destroying Gumuruk, Lekuangule and Pibor Payams or districts.

Mazee told Sudan Tribune that massive numbers of Murles have been killed. He estimated that since the fighting began on 15 June around 900 people have died.

Mazee further said the well armed attackers had burned houses, raided cattle and abducted some children in the areas. He pointed out that machine guns, hand-grenades, RPG 7 rockets and AK 47 rifles were used.

Jonglei State’s deputy governor, Maar Nyuot confirmed and condemned the attacks but declined to give a death toll.

The minister of law enforcement in the Jonglei, Duop Lam also confirmed the assaults but was not sure of how many people had been killed or the number of cattle raided.

Lam said Jonglei has called for the intervention of huge forces from the South Sudan army to put to an end the fighting.

“As the state, we having been for the intervention of huge forces. Our police can[not] control either Lou [Nuer] or [the] Murle”, said Lam.

In 2009 attacks, UN officials in South Sudan spoke about the use of sophisticated firearms in the inter-tribes clashes. A UNMIS force had been deployed but suggested that a sustainable solution involves disarming the local population and a proactive deployment of state security forces in areas of potential conflict.

Local officials explain that the lack of infrastructures complicates the quick intervention of the army.

However the Nyirol County commissioner Isaac Kuach, denied that the attack was launched by the Lou Nuer on Murle saying it might have been a criminal gang that attacked Pibor.

Kuach admitted that his people sometimes retaliate and take "revenge" after being attacked by Murle, but said he has no knowledge that the current attack was organised by people from his county.

"I don’t have any information about the people of Nyirol leaving and attacking the Murle. If it was an organised attack, I should have known it", he said.

"If there are, it may be amalgamation of thieves who might have organised themselves and attack Murle whether because of revenge or to get wealth, I don’t know", Kuach continued.

    "Pibor’s commissioner Akot Mazee said that thousands of armed young men from Akobo, Ayod, Duk, Nyirol, Twic East and Uror counties attacked his county on 15 June destroying Gumuruk, Lekuangule and Pibor Payams or districts."

    Pibor commissioner is a liar. Or may be he doesn’t know the locations of those Nuer counties. Some are in the far eastern part of Jonglei, while others are in the far western part of Jonglei. How could they assemble or move undetected and attack pibor in the east?

    Those attackers are some youth from Lou-Nuer revenging the recent attacks by Murle armed groups.

    All in all, it is very unfortunate that the killings continue in Jonglei state.

    But commissioner, don’t lie too much. And also acknowledge your people’s criminal and provocative behaviors of abducting and murdering people from other communities.

      And besides, Twic East is a Dinka Bor county while Duk is a Nyarweng Dinka county. So, does that mean the Dinka Bor and Lou-Nuer have planned and carried out that joint attack against their neighbor, the Murle?

      And how can those of Gawaar Nuer of Ayod county in the far west of Jonglei joined in the attacks when they have not had any conflict with the Murle who are in the far east?

      Pibor Commissioner Akot Mazee must give more and true explanation about the situation. I hope he was talking about the SPLA fighting against David Yauyau and that caused Yauyau to surrender three days ago if the fighting started last week.

      But because most of the SPLA soldiers are from Nuer ethnic group, the Murle thought it was a Lou-Nuer clan attacking them jointly with Dinka Bor of Twic East county.

          To Murle youth: More Destructions is coming to you

          Now the arabs are out in the South. It is up to you to decide whether to continue abducting children and raiding cattle of innocent civilians and face massive retaliations, or stop this barbaric act since your proxies are gone and then stay in peace.

          After independence, all the tribes around you[murle] will converge on you and do what is possible to stop you from destabilizing the whole state of Jonglei if Salva and his government continues to ignore your crimes. You are all criminals, there is no reason why the government has to keep quiet without enforcing laws on you. There is no reason, why the government allows Murle to be the ones to do their own disarment.

          Allowing murle and Agaar to destabilize the whole of South Sudan is foolishness of Salva Kiir.

            Enough is enough. Our war has just begun. It is time now to seek reconciliation with Bor and return to the old peaceful co-existence with Bor Dinka. We shall then punish them together. Murle ’ma Bor Dinka fi khandak wahid didd Lou’ and other Nuer. Remember what they did in 1991 against innocent children. These creatures have wild animal hearts and arains. They are filthy and rotten, no human feeling whatsoever. Murle youth woyee

      Dear Mr. Akot Mazee,
      The armed men from Lou Nuer’s three counties, Ayod and Duk County can never leave togather with out counties security personal in these five counties reporting the leaving to the SPLA HQs in Juba, this I think is unjustified statement trying to provoke what had happened. All these youth are too many to just go and attack Murle, In all these area you have mentioned there are Murle citizen living there, they would have told you. But remember, do you want peace in your area endervour to stops Murle youth from attacking their frontiers no matter what tribe is that.
      Lou Nuer were disarmed in 2006, Murle youth weren’t now where do you think Lou citizen attained arms?
      Finlly your people commited the masaccre in Geni a year ago killing almost all livingthings, SPLA delegates where sent to witeness the case where were you to condems what happened?
      Lou Nuer are men who can fight, if we mean fight go ahead, but stops coward fight attacking children and women but
      Come openly.
      Last but not least even in North South fight 900 people have never been killed a fight, this number is baseless.

      When the Bor Dinka, Anyuak, Toposa and Jie attack us to steal and loot and murder women and children, abducting some and behading others, we the Murle know them. We can differenciate them in the way they attack, walk or their very scent. Those recent attackers were Nuer armed thugs. I don’t know why the president of GoSS is silent. Is he part of this clear plot by some who have been trying all the time to wipe Murle out from Pibor as they did to Anyuak in 1980 when they chased them away from Akobo which was rightly for Anyuak but were driven away ever since and the Nuer have grabbed Akobo and are still occupying it. That is one point from where they attempt to advance their occupation. I admit that you Nuer people have been successful these two years passed and you have had your greatest successes over Murle whose children and women you have destroyed, and some are kept by you up to now as slaves.
      We know why this is happening now. The current leaders of SPLA and GOSS are behind all these atrocities against Murle. Some leaders from Murle need to be removed for good. Some big fish in GOSS need to be indicted, and it must happen very soon. Some ambitions will be buried soon in the Hage. Occampo is reading this website too. But that is not the end of the story. You Nuer people, you are going to pay for these crimes very dearly soon. Have you forgotten Murle. Who does not know what the Murle warriors are capable of? Today is your day but tomorrow is ours. We shall see who will cry the most. We must not wait for Ocampo or ’jin ahmar’

      The mistakes will be solved soon, and the Murle free youth who are not after positions or favors will roam Murleland very soon. Nuer will never know peace by all means. Newpeople8@hotmail.com

      The Governor of Jonglei State need to resign because of lack of decision-making and problem-solving strategic in Jonglei State. This governor never went to school but he has military legacy, So this time we need some leaders that have international decision-making and problem-solving dialogue than waiting for people suffer major attack everyday. If I’m governor today i will make sure that none of these tribes killed themselves by all means of dialoguing and negotiating.

      Hey Mazee,

      What are your roles in your job? Why didn’t you tell Murle Youth that "Fire is always a good servant but a bad master"
      At least, you became famous in reporting the incident and you were not active in sensitizing your youth to stop the weird behaviour of abducting children, it’s not cattle raiding.

      I wish those thugs could push you out of the South till we finish the July 9th celebration and maybe to welcome you back because your behaviours in the State irritates....

      Murle cultural and traditional practices will make Jonglei State a war-zone if you don’t stop it, I wish I were in the same group to attack your residential area coz you are doing nothing to stop what Murle youth does....

      Murle youth should stop upducting children......

      You are right. But every form of killing or violence must stop. Whether it is killing in the battle field, or cold blood murders or poisoning as massively practiced by some communities. All must stop because they are all forms of violence and mass killing.

      George Bol,

      Don’t continue with your lies. No community or region has become civilized when it comes to killing or violence, only that they use different methods.

      Some communities use killing in direct battle fields, some use cowardly cold blood murders in dark corners, others use poisoning as a tool of killing every day.

      So, which method do you community use?

      We must work to stop them all, not just some methods involving battles. Those mass cold blood murderers and poisoners every day must also be told to stop such violence and loss of lives in their communities. Then we can talk of civilization.

    Very good!, that’s what the new Republic of South Sudan is going to look like in the eyes of the world, because the big leaders who come from those affected areas do not want to use their power to solve the problems that exit between the communities for decades, but they are only using their power to steal money and practice nepotism and corruptions.

    Oil and cattle are becoming a curse, sources of conflicts and disunity among the people of South Sudan, let’s blame our leaders for their failure to bring peace, unity and address poverty problem among the people.

      Dear Southerners and the World

      The fight which is carried out by Lou Nuer is not a cattle raiding as many of you may think, it is simply military exercise organized and sponsored by the some of the senior leaders within the government circle.

      Raiding is always charaterise by few groups of raiders who are seeking cattle and they normally attack, get little cattle that they get their hands on and run back to their villages. But this attack is well organize attack conducted by soldiers from seven counties.

      The attackers viewed this attack as a punishment to the Murle community regarding the crimes they have committed in previous years. But the raids carried out by Murle are pure raids usually initiated by 5 or maximum of 10 criminals. The one of Lou Nuer is military operation which is deeply orchestrated by Nuer leaders against the government in fulfilment of Nguon Deng prophesies.

      As community, we want to question Nuer leadership about their political careers. For us it seem that Nuer are completely barbaric and badly unqualified to lead the people. Yes Nuer can not lead this country because it is usually impossible for the leadership to be given to the person whom his ambition is to exterminate the rest of the people in the country. Nuer are not intellegent enough because they sent their foolish Dr. so called Riak to go and compaign for the presidency while his people are killing the same people, this will not work in at all.

      For information, Murle have withdrawed their little support from Dr. Riak unconditionally and fully given it to Kiir or someone who is not tribally minded. This is a definite truth.

      Nuer must read my lips people of southern Sudan will not and will never support you as your tendency of finishing the rest is rising alarmingly. We prefer Dinka Of Bhar El ghazzel to keep the power till the time when one of the small tribes is going to take it over because Dinka Bhar El Ghazzel are playing with money but they don’t insult people in streets like what Dinka Bor us to do during Garang era.

      This is a clear message that my brothers of Nuer need to read and note it clearly for generations

      God bless.

        Those tribes with no religious beliefs will never and never stay in peace before they repent, forgive each other and turn to God. There aggressiveness, lack of proper education, lack of respect to God and other fellows will not make them to embrace peace in their lives.

        Peace prevails through compromise (no winner), dialogue, forgiveness and respect. Those who don’t kill themselves like animals like that doesn’t mean that they can’t fight, but the fear of God is living in them.

    Coward Jurs (Jaang, Teet, Bar, Chai, Jabe...),

    North of the Sobat River, the British faced even more formible and intransigent opposition from Eastern Jikany Nuer who lived along the Ethiopian frontier. They were well armed with rifles and ammunitions from Ethiopia and raid neighbors, the Burun and Komo to the North, the Dinka and Anyuak to the South-as well as Ethiopian tribes in the Western foothils.

    Under the command of Lt. Col. Bacon of Royal Air Forces (R.A.F) a powerful patrol was finally launched against the Eastern Jikany Nuer from Nasir in January 1920, complete with machine guns and airplanes. The Eastern Jikany Nuer Warriors led by Captain Mut Dung attacked the advanced troops, sustaining heavly loses on both sides and Lt. Col. Bacon’s life was also wasted as a result.

    It is also quite clear that Nuer military domination of the coward Jaang/Slaves and other Jurs has been grounded in their capacity to field a numberically superior fighting force, and in the organizational features through which mobilzation on a large scale was effective. Other aspects of the Nuer advantage were secondary and derivative. Nuer Warriors tactics are relatively simple and straightforward.

    Had the Mighty Nuer Warriors wished to occupy the whole greater Upper Nile, from Renk to Mading Bor and from Ruweng-Abiemnhom to Buma/Piboir-Gambella, it seems unlikely that the other coward Jurs (Dinka, Shilluk, Anyuak, Murle, Burun, Komo...) could have stopped them.

    It is always the Mighty Nuer Warriors wishes not to occupy other ethnic groups lands unlike in 1800s.

      Twic East is not Dinka Bor, please. Twic East different tribe in Dinka. You say you are truthteller, that’s deceiving name.I believe Dinka Twic East or Twic East County, otherwise something not right there. Twic East People are not always attacking other people, unless it is a revenge.

    Coward Jurs,

    The discipline of Nuer forces is also demonstrated by a remarkable capacity of continues to press and assault while sustaining very heavy casualties. The Mighty Nuer Warriors take invasion (Mut) when the right time appropriate and always alert the enemy about their comming for D-day.

    Person of the Dinka decent form probably at least half the population of most [Nuer] sub-tribes. These Dinka are either children of captives or immigrants who have been brought up as Nuer, or are themselves captives and immigrants who are residing permanently among the Nuer. They are "Jaang-Nath," "Dinka-Nuer," and , it is said "caa Naath," "they have become Nuer."

    The Dinka, Anyuak, Shilluk, Murle, Komo... have no recourse other than withdrawal. There must also have been pocket of the original Dinka, Anyuak, Burun... occupants of the country overran by the Nuer Warriors who submitted and gave up their language and habits in favor of those of the Nuer. At any rate, there are today in all Nuer sub-tribes many small Dinka lineages and villages often named after them (Mayom, Mankien, Fangak, Ayod, Waad, Yom, Ulang, Akobo, Maiwut, Jekow...)

    The alliance of coward Jaang and very tiny Murle cannot prevent the Mighty Nuer Warriors of only two Nuer sub-tribes of Lou Nuer and Gawaar Nuer to cross their territories in broad daylight. There is no community in South Sudan that can face Mighty Nuer Warriors in warfields.

    How was the reporter here? This article is questionable for authenicity. This guy has something behind his report, and if I may say, he is actually who report. He is Dinka Bor and is why he left out Bor County in unprovable report.
