The deputy minister of interior, Gen. Salva Mathok Gengdit, on Monday revealed that more forces will be deployed between the tria-states of Warrap, Unity and Lakes in preparation of the ground for maintaining security in anticipation of any violent conflicts arising during the coming dry season.

Gengdit made the statement shortly after a joint meeting of governors of the three states and the leadership of the national ministry of Interior chaired by the Vice President, Riek Machar.

He expressed the importance of the gathering which he said came out with a number of resolutions to implement. He further explained that auxiliary police forces will be deployed in a number of bordering counties in order to arrest the tensions.

The meeting discussed the recent attacks carried out by the youth from Lakes state into Warrap and Unity states, adding that the governor of Lakes state, Chol Tong Mayay, was directed in the meeting to trace and return to the owners the cattle stolen from Unity state in the last few days.

He also added that the government has encouraged the peace initiative by the youth from the three states and that it will support the initiative through the Peace Commission and other partners.

A disarmament campaign will be carried out in the three states to get rid of weapons from the civilians.

Hundreds of people have lost their lives for the last seven years as a result of inter-communal conflicts in the tria-states.

    This problem will be contained as the bordering communities came together and thieves are identified from each area . This is an old problem complicated by AK47s. Cow thieves had existed for hundred of years in these communities, but that did not prevented these communities to continue their journey together. We hope modernity and INDEPENDENCE of SOUTH SUDAN bring it to minimum!!

      Bentiu Elite,
      Your point is absolutely correct, thieves from these 3 states are disturbing peace and coexistence among communities in the 3 states. If they are identified, it will be easy to contain cattle raiding and sensitized communities of how importance to live in peace and unity. Disarmament also must be comprehensive to make sure all guns are collected from both sides in 3 states.

        South Sudanese Army without a bird eye view of civilian on the ground will never solve anything!!! Please buy police helicopters to deliver troops to the scene of raids or crims. That will robustly save lives!!!.
        Stop living in the shadow of "I dont know" those who dont know will never know!!! This is the 21 first century, and our government can buy technology with the brain behind it.

          You’re right and if education was given prominence and boosted funding this will also go a long way to educate the young about this crippling vice which had gone on for countless generations.

      You saw how it is impossible to accept your plea on security. Your goons are already saying Juba has guaranteed to continue to support Yesir and el Mahdi, should the team up. So, we will bring these folks together and flush you out. You are a disgrace to Sudan.

        People like master are sad, the truth is both north & south Sudan have major problems to overcome, once the politicians get their act together perhaps things will improve but given the history of politics this will take time and a new generation of thinkers, not the current donkeys.

      Jalaby and mister, your reverse psychology is not working; it doesn’t matter how many time you play it. You can pretend any way you want but it’s not going to transit oil through Sudan. Salva Kiir order the oil shutdown back in January and yet still in its control today! Cry anyway you want but you’re not getting this oil from South Sudan may be for many years to come!

        I think you’re following the bad wisdom which says "Lie .. lie till they believe you!"
        in which planet are you living now? don’t you ever read the daily news which shows the south is begging Sudan day and night to open that oil pipeline?
        Just tell me, why Pagan in Khartoum just few days ago? doing what? why the south defense minister in Khartoum now?

Forget oil you will beg us soon to open it again when you realized that the North is the beneficiary in the process.

          Depolyment of so call fake SPLA which is almost occupied by ruthless Dinkanuer will not make anydifferent, because instead of keeping order, they will looted Dinka and murle. so the fiest thing you should do is to train Equatorians who are peace loving people plus few Dinka and depoly them from there they will make the meanful of armforce and peace mentainance.

    Stealing, killing or eating are behaviors of a person or community and changing them, is a daydream. I meant the nature of who regard such above behaviors would show even if more police’s forces are deployed than the fact that past should be learned through the rule of laws.

On top of that, President Kiir was elected by people and he will be changed through vote if citizens of South Sudan decided democratically.
