Jonglei cattle camp attack: nine dead and seven injured


November 29, 2012 (BOR) - At least nine people were confirmed dead and and seven others injured in two attacks on Pamuom and Akoiriar cattle camps at Alian village in Jonglei’s Jale payam [district] on Thursday.

Speaking to Sudan Tribune on Thursday, the commissioner of Bor county, Agot Alier Leek, said the attackers were armed members of the Murle ethnic group “in green military uniforms” who coordinated the attacks to take place at the same time in the two closely situated cattle camps.

“You know pointing hands to Yau Yau [Murle rebel leaders] will protect these Murle criminals who have been dashing the disarmament. They are the ones and not Yau Yau, I am sure,” said Leek.

Jonglei’s disarmament programme began in March 2011. Members of the civil population have claimed that the programme has ben biased, leaving them prone to cattle raiding attacks by the better-armed Murle.

According to Leek, who visited the hospital, eight people were admitted with injures. He declined to say the number killed, saying the fighting was ongoing.

Member of parliament representing Athoc North constituency 28, Kuol Bol Ayom, said a huge number of cattle had been rustled when they were released for grazing on Thursday morning and that the perpetrators are being pursued.

Samuel Ayuen Garang, from the Alian community, told Sudan Tribune he was there when the attack took place, in which he lost nine cousins.

Ayuen said the attackers set their ambush before the cattle were released for grazing in the morning. The attackers allowed the herders to move with their cattle before surrounding them and opening fire on both the herders and their cattle, killing nine immediately in the two attacks.

Attempts to reach the commissioner of Pibor for his comments failed due to poor network connection.

      We the Dinka, there is nothing that can defy us, if we have manage to take out the Arab outside South Sudan, then it is just a matter of time before Murle will declare extinct tribe on the face of the earth. Wait and see.

          Murle Agent,
          We are more educated than your people. We have not yet put our apparatus together but we will. There is no way, we will allow a primitive community to a pain on our back. Bagoan[Nyigak’s wife] is now keeping quiet and not talking to UN. Eventually,she will die like Emma McCune.
          If we all come to your land like Nuer did and stay there for 3 months. Very few of you will survive.

            You are the number one enemies of Southerners. Arabs are gone and their helicopter that brings you ammunitions will be shot down soon. Where will you go?

      As your name suggest it is not worthy for anyone to be lured into your shameless argument, i know you are not in South Sudan, but this pieces of trash you always post here have negative impacts seriously at the grassroots level, i haven’t understood your intentions which i fully doubt of you being a murle itself. many people had been doing this incitement but they disappeared here.

                Young Lotuko, read between the lines, the so called South Dengjok are those defeated Sudanese who post messages in disguise because they can’t win any argument if they use their Sudanese names. One good example is the so called Kurnyel and Kurnyel Junior of which I believe is the same person. Even Murle Agent might be one of those in camouflage as well.

        In 1965,Toposa waged war to Buya.Their aim was to wiped Buya out of the mape of sudan.And Buya were less than thousand in population . Buya defeated and killed Toposa mercilesly at the battle of Kimotong,Kidepo valley.
        Buya are quality ,and Toposa are quantity???????????????

      Take heed, this is not your normal murle act as you,re cheated to believe. The Govt of S Sudan has a hand in this. But our governor thinks he is ruling his herd when they are being eaten away on his watch. Kuol is not fit to lead our modern day Jonglei as a leader, he was the one who put Kiir into the Power, & Kiir agents are the ones that are these raiders. Kuol should resign to save our people..

        .. Kuol should immediately give the Bor Dinka & Nuer their guns back, it is not murle that is killing our people, i repeat it is not Murle that is killing our people. Bor & Nuer people should re-examine who is who Jonglei. The UK is behind this, they have done it in Goma & they are doing it Jonglei. put every so-called UK journalists in jail in Jonglei now & they are monsters. Keep watch please.

They white on the skin, but they are far more darker in the heart. It is better we trade with them strickly on bussiness basis, otherwise we don’t want them to control our peoples lives in our country. Take heed!

          I can agree with you. Hilde Johnson is now keeping quiet when Murle attack or Lou. When we attack Murle, she will start yapping. Every time Bangoan[wife of Nyacigak] is welcomed to defend the Murle on the BBC. No person from Lou or Bor gets that chance when Murle attack us. BOR and LOU need to call a general meeting and discuss and come up with Murle solution once and for all. ...cont

            Government has now proven to everybody that it can’t solve this issue. It has to be left to the tribes to solve it. I support killing of government officials who interfere with an angry youth like when LOU Youth went to Murle to look for the 180 children abducted. Government officials interfere just for their political interest and they don’t care about local people.

    Fighting with coward is a difficult task because they will refuse fight when waging war but latter come at night when you sleep. Nuer and some section of Dinka wage a real war in a daylight but Murle run away leaving behind innocents.Why shouldn’t they fight?Murle is not stopping act of coward gimmicks but protect yourself.

    I think the better way of life is to let the civil population being disarmed given back their guns since there is no rule of law in this country so that everyone in any community protect itself against the other. The government has failed so far to handle this issue and there is no way we should rely on it anymore. I stand to be corrected!!!
