    This press releeased news would serve better purpose if the Governor of Wau plainly denied by contradicting himself with his information that no people died as the result of the protest in Wau. This is an incident that can not be denied. It has been broadcasted on International News outlet and South Sudan officials have even been contacted for an explanation of transpired the klilling of unarmed.
