December 31, 2011 (JUBA/BOR) – South Sudan’s Vice President, Riek Machar, has called on Lou-Nuer youth to implement the verbal agreement he reached with them on Wednesday 28 December and withdraw back to the Nuer territory. Machar warned them not to advance towards headquarters of the Murle community.

Vice President, Riek Machar, tells Lou-Nuer youth to withdraw from Linkwangale, Dec. 28, 2011 (ST)

Earlier this week, several thousand armed Lou-Nuer youth marched onto Murle land and captured a strategic payam [district] called Likwangole, which is about 25 kilometers from the county headquarters. The youth announced that they would continue to capture Pibor town and other payams and villages until the Murle community was completely “liberated and disarmed”.

The group claimed that they were carrying out a revenge attack for the killing of more than 700 of their members, mostly women and children, by armed youth from the Murle community in a village called Pieri in August.

According to the Vice President’s Press Secretary, James Gatdet Dak, who accompanied the Vice President to Pibor county, Machar flew to the isolated payam of Likwangole on Wednesday to try to convince the Lou-Nuer youth to withdraw and move back to their territory.

The youth, who at first refused to meet with Machar, finally agreed to withdraw on the condition that their wounded were evacuated first, before they withdrew to Lou-Nuer areas of Jonglei state.

The wounded were evacuated on Thursday and on Friday the Lou-Nuer youth informed the Vice President, who was spending the night with them. However instead of withdrawing as they had agreed the Luo Nuer youth diverted their route and headed towards the Pibor county headquarters.

The Governor of Jonglei State, told the BBC on Friday that the youth were now demanding that the Lou-Nuer women and children who had been abducted must be handed over by the Murle community before they stop their attacks.

Juuk said that because the Lou Nuer were moving in the bush it be impossible for the UN to contain the violence. Most of South Sudan’s army is deployed on the border with north Sudan due unrest there in recent months, he said.

"We can’t work miracles," he told the BBC.

The United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) said that they had intercepted about six thousand armed Lou-Nuer youth moving toward Pibor county headquarters on Friday burning villages and taking cattle on the way.

According to the UN report, tens of thousands of civilians had already fled from Pibor town on Friday, into the bush in fear of imminent attack. UNMISS has already deployed a battalion of its troops in Pibor town to protect the civilians, in addition to the SPLA forces on the ground.

Lise Grande, the UN humanitarian coordinator for South Sudan, told the BBC that the UN was "very concerned by the scale this", adding that UNMISS was reinforcing its troops in the area to help the SPLA defend civilians.

"The UN is facing enormous logistical challenges - we still have no military aircraft, only civilian helicopters," the BBC quoted her as saying.

On Friday, the Vice President, Machar, who is still in the affected Murle area of Likwangole, continued to try to stop the youth from moving further into Murle land.

On Friday he spoke on the phone with the leader of the Lou-Nuer youth, Bor Doang, who assured the Vice President that he would order his group to stop advancing toward Pibor town and return back to Lou-Nuer.

However it is not yet clear whether or not the youth leader will keep his word, although the expected attack on Pibor town did not occur as feared on Friday.

    Dr. Riek Machar,

    May God bless your courageous spirit to save your people of South Sudan.

    I don’t understand why the other so-called leaders of South Sudan and Jonglei state are leaving this dangerous task to Dr. Riek alone.

    This situation may get out of hand and spilt into other areas that are just laughing now...

    I heard that Jonglei state governor, Kuol does not participate too.

      Because he’s the cause of all this Mr. Midiit. I thought you know this already. Riek Machar always wants Jonglei to be in flame, thinking that people of Jonglei are an obstacle to his leadership. Let him bring peace like he caused this conflict and rage.

        Nuer are disgrace to whole South Sudan. Murle are very tiny tribe, but Nuers never be able to defeated them by all means. 68000 nuers youths going to attack Murle. Riak know very well how ugly it will turned out if he didnt convince them to return to their places. half of that number will remain in Murle area without being traced.only 180 Murle young men went and attack Nuer n 600 die.

              Nuer stab people in back. Nuer only fight with tiny tribe but never with other big tribe likes that of Agaar of Lakes State. what have happened in April 12, 1997 when invaded Lakes with 3,000 men? only few hundred come back to Nuer-lou land. I have one AK47 now with me from that fight, fews months later, Nuers call for peace with Agaar of Lakes State.

                      I mean to say,the Atout or the Reel ,were Nuer warriors who decided after their conquest of the region to settle down there by taking wives from the locals.Can you deny that vivid historical fact? The Agaar too have so many clans who originate from Nuer.I gave you an example of the dupty governor among the people who originate from Nuer.You may as well be a Nuer son.

                You are right Aarai Baka. In South Sudan, Nuer are well Known For their REBELLIOUS act and atrocities to their fellow Southerners. Starting from their Leading man to the last Nuer, they are fond of destruction and killing. one author wrote, "Nuer are stateless and mannerless nation on earth." Reflect on this statement, "Nuer are closest allies of devil." Whatever they think is "evil."

      The vice president needs to step aside and let the liberation war continue for just 90 days. Mr. Vice president is the root cause of Jonglei state’s problems and now he act as if he is the peace-loving person. When murle was about to be disarm one year ago, the same vice president interfered in disarment and prevented the army from carrying out its duties.

      The Greater Upper Nile Dinka, the Greater Upper Nile Nuer, and Murle people need to be treated with good managing system between modern leaders in Juba, State leaders, Counties’ leaders, Payam’s leaders, and their counterparts, who are traditional leaders. There is a big gap between these two branches of leadership in South Sudan. Both need to leave ignorant, they just need respect each other.

      Both governments have let down the citizens by not stepping in to stop this conflicts soon enough.

I believe this is the time the state’s and central governments learnt about the gravity of the situation. Culprits should face justice.

You killed Nyachigac Nyachuluk and Murle leaders like what you did in Equatoria, and now you are talking nonsense.NUER IN DIASPORA FUND RAISED MONEY TO HELP ARM LOU YOUTH SO THAT THEY KILL MURLE.

        The Greater Upper Nile Dinka, the Greater Upper Nile Nuer, and Murle people need to be treated with good managing system between modern leaders in Juba, State leaders, Counties’ leaders, Payam’s leaders, and their counterparts, who are traditional leaders. There is a big gap between these two branches of leadership in South Sudan. Both need to leave ignorant, they just need respect each other.

    It is also quite clear that Nuer military domination of the Dinka and other Jurs was grounded in their capacity to field a numerically superior fighting force, and in the organizational features through which mobilization on a large scale was effective.
