March 9, 2012 (BOR) – Armed raiders alleged to be Murle tribesmen have taken control of cattle camps and villages in Dengjok Payam (district) of Akobo County, Jonglei State killing many people, sources have told Sudan Tribune.

The fighting, that began at 5am on Friday, comes as Jonglei prepares for a mass disarmament campaign after a series of large scale clashes between rival cattle herding groups in South Sudan’s largest state.

Four steam boats full of wounded people reached Akobo town on Friday evening from Dengjok, a resident told Sudan Tribune.

Jonglei State’s minister for law enforcement, Gabriel Duop Lam, confirmed the clashes on Friday evening but could not give casualty figures saying he was “still speaking with the [Akobo County] commissioner to get details”.

Akobo County Commissioner, Goy Jooyol told Sudan Tribune on Saturday morning that by Friday evening 43 injured people had reached Akobo hospital by boat but there were over 200 wounded stranded in the Wading area.

“We cannot evacuate them to Akobo because have run out of fuel [for boats]. There
is no fuel in the market. We are appealing for help”, Jooyol said. The fighting took place in Toch [swampy areas] where cattle are kept during the dry season. There is no road and the place is only accessible by river.

“A lot of children are missing. Many of them did not report to their mothers [for the last 24 hours].” The number of the dead is yet to known.

Jooyol said the Murle attackers have remained in Dengjok Payam throughout Friday and into Saturday morning. The commissioner said that the South Sudan army (SPLA) did not respond to repulse the attack. Jonglei officials have told Sudan Tribune that the South Sudan army (SPLA) in Akobo County remained in their barracks despite repeated calls for them intervene.

Responding to the allegations SPLA spokesperson Philip Aguer said the fighting had taken place in a remote area "about 90 kilometres from Akobo where the [SPLA] forces are based".

Commissioner Jooyol claims that 3,000 Murle tribesmen launched the raid at 5am on Friday. He said some of the raiders laid ambushes 20 km away from Akobo town and burnt a car on Friday evening.

In an apparently related development, two people were killed and two others wounded on Friday night in Mar Payam (district) of Twic East county relatives of the deceased told Sudan Tribune. The attackers are said to be Murle.

Inter tribal fighting intensified in Jonglei State last year killing over 1,000 people and displacing thousands more. In December and January 6,000 armed men from the Lou Nuer tribe attacked Pibor County, home to the Murle tribe, in what they said was revenge for an attack in August. The August attack was itself a response to a June raid by the Luo-Nuer.

Jonglei’s Akobo, Uror and Nyirol Counties, which belong to the Lou Nuer have witnessed numerous counter raids since January that have been blamed on the Murle. Since December over 120,000 people have been affected by the fighting, according to the United Nations (UN).

DISARMAMENT CAMPAIGN

In an attempt to stop the cycle violence South Sudan’s army is due to begin a disarmament campaign this month, which is expected to begin 15 March. The raids often occur in remote areas with poor roads making it hard to the South Sudan army (SPLA) and peacekeepers from the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), which has complained that it does not have helicopters to respond to violence in a timely manner.

Around 12,000 SPLA troops have been stationed in Jonglei to disarm civilians. Official sources in the state have indicated that South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir is expected to launch the exercise in person.

Kiir has warned that if civilians do not handover their weapons voluntarily force will be used. The United States (US) ambassador to South Sudan Susan Page on Wednesday encouraged the process to be peaceful and voluntary after meeting with Jonglei Governor, Kuol Manyang Juuk.

AKOBO CLASH

A source told Sudan Tribune from Akobo town, which is two days walk away from Bor, the capital of Jonglei state, that it was difficult to verify the scale of the Friday attack but added that initial reports indicate the fight was “very heavy”.

Some of the wounded people were taken from Dengjok Payam to Akobo hospital by four steam boats on Friday, the source said.

The director of the South Sudan Red Cross in Jonglei State, David Gai, said volunteers are assisting in evacuating the wounded from Dengjok, north of Akobo, to the county headquarters.

Nine cattle camps were attacked, an Akobo resident told Sudan Tribune, including Hat, Madies, Kuarnyuin, Kaithilnyer, Bil, Wichol and three camps in Romyieri.

Another source that visited the wounded in Akobo hospital said victims spoke of “hundreds wounded” stranded in an area called Wading.

The raiders are alleged to have occupied the cattle camps and still controlled them on Friday evening, women and children are feared to have been abducted and forced to flee to the bush for safety.

“The cattle camps and villages housing many people are besieged by Murle,” the source said.

Due to the remoteness of the area and Jonglei’s poor communication network Sudan Tribune has not been able to independently verify the figures, the areas attacked or identity of the alleged raiders.

    Fellows,

    I say this is insanity, but some of my Nuer cousins argued that this is Ngundeeng prophecy. Then the question become; What will Ngundeng gain after we exterminated ourselves in the face of the living Earth? Gat-witch or Midiit or whatever he had become these days need to tell us what good will his idol Ngundeng deliver for the South. Death!!!!!!!!!??

        Omoni Jr. You are very right. Since they claimed to be men in Juba Bari land, now let them see how Murle is hitting their asses in Akobo. Soon the Bari pple will invite Murle to come and settled in Juba for a while so that we see where will they go. Moreover Bari were attacked by SPLA in VP HQ’s near the late Samuel Abu John area. Baris are still studying the situation and the retaliation will be.

In their murle attack b4 this, they blamed it on kuol manyang for delaying disarmament and uninolvement of president kiir in peace. Then the same thing was preached to s sudanese in usa by riek machar.So dont you think twisting it that way won’t result in clash by them against dinka?

With out Dr. Garang AK47 they are women and will remain women forever. Bravo Murle continue teaching them lessons and i wish Maj.

          Joseph, I did not expect you to be such a narrow-minded person. Your previous comments on other issues made sense but this time you have easily been drawn to support tribalism....mind you bro it is futile. Waging useless war on one another is fruitless as that does not take the country forward.

Land will be redistributed, new market will be built, new owners & traders will come in. Old traders from Bari had already lost their properties,goods& wealth ; they donnot have cows!

    I know its hard to believe but, it is true south sudan is now a failed state. don’t start now speaking about darfur, bn and sk because you know these places are a 100 times better than south sudan. that you took 80% of sudan’s oil, does not mean sudan is now collapsed or bashir is going to be overthrown, as long as we love bashir, ncp will never be overthrown. we, sudanese are ..

      not terrorists and you all know that. don’t start saying ’osama bin laden lived in sudan’ because you know that doesn’t make sudanese terrorists and the fact that sudan is on the list of states sponsoring terrorists is part of a process of weakening sudan and you all know that. sudan is still alive and improving, but south sudan is dying. 4.7 milion people in need of food. that’s a big number....

        it is leading South Sudan into a famine. people killed everyday due to cattle. it is a fact now in south sudan that a cattle is more important than a human. you think thats good?. what is wrong with sudan asking help from qatar while you are begging nearly every single country for help?.700,00 returnees, 1/8 of the people live abroad, no schools,no hospitals, less than a 1000 doctors,a few paved..

    This is the foolish disarment Goss official been talking about. Murlei is killing people,while lou are intimidating by disarment. why not disarm Murlei first;Guns are the weapons of today,they have to protect themselves. SPLA,police can not be in Rural areas,so civillian must have carried Arm for their own protection. Criminal might get Arms and robbed their properties.

      These games are being played by Salva Kiir and Kuol Manyang to fool Nuer and Murle to finish each other up. It is a dirty game. Since they cannot protect civilians, let them go to hell with their disarmament. It is not really disarmament at all, it is an organized crimes where SPLA rape women, loot cows, and commit mass murder

    Murle,

    You will regret your cowardice war style of hit and run very soon, instead of facing the Mighty Nuer Warriors in warfields you come unwarned. The Mighty Nuer Warriors do not only announce their coming, but also warn to let the children and women be evacuated before the D-day.

    Nuer Warriors,

    The only way to stop Murle unrest is to evict them from their land and occupy it permanently at least for six months. You have done it to Anyuak and Burun in those years, then why not this tiny Murle?

        Murle,

        The Mighty Nuer Warriors did not only danced at Murle cattle camps after they launched "Operation Typhoon" in December-January, but also burned down Lilkuangole, Pibor and all the surrounding villages. The Mihgty Nuer Warriors did not only bring countless cattle to Nuerland, but captives.

    If this is the kind of hate filled talk we will keep engaging ourselves in than we will be/are a failed state in the making. You people dont care about the country at all. A bunch of hot heads.

    Until our people rejected Ngundeng‘s ideologies and repent to Almighty God. Then we will lives in peace, or otherwise you will be soon joining with Muhammad, Gatluak Manguel, and Ngundeng in Hell! The Profit Ngundeng had become a halve human in order for him to deceives God’s people but it’s an evil. Shame on his followers who have been cursed!

    Murle,

    "We the Mighty Nuer Warriors didn’t kill Murle youth last December. This time we will go forest to forest; bush to bush to clean out armed Murle youth. If they run to Ethiopia, we will follow them there to clean them. There is no life in Jonglei State if Murle are not dealt with once and for all."

    The Government sh’d look into this problem critically.For now we think the problem is criminality and this is how we portray it in the eyes of public.Every clashes in SS claiming to be criminality,yet in real life this is tribalism.
    Tribalism is a bad tool to any nation.I therefore suggest,the Gvt,local leaders,community Leaders shd devote resources& time in civil sensitization.
