December 20, 2012 (JUBA) - The United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) will deploy more peacekeepers in Wau, the capital of South Sudan’s Western Bahr el Ghazal state to calm a situation, it describes as “tense”.

Thousands of civilians, according to the mission, fled the violence in Wau on Wednesday and have reportedly camped at the UN base in the area.
“A significant number of civilians, mainly women, children and the elderly, remain in the UN base and continue to be protected,” said Eduardo Del Buey, the deputy spokesperson for the UN Secretary General.

At least 12 people, eyewitnesses told Sudan Tribune, died Wednesday when hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of Wau to protest the 8 December killing of nearly 25 civilians in Farajallah, located 48 miles outside Wau town.

The protest follows the state’s council of ministers’ decision to transfer Wau county headquarters, a move rejected by the population. The decision also prompted Peter Miskin, the former commissioner of Wau to resign his post.

However, while state authorities initially claimed no one died in the earlier incident, the UN has now put the death toll at nine, while the former commissioner says up to 25 people lost their lives and almost an equal numbers injured.

The UN, Del Buey said, will continue to safeguard the airport, having reportedly conducted patrols to assess the situation in the city and affected outlying settlements.

Meanwhile as UN agencies stand ready to provide humanitarian assistance to those affected, the mission urges authorities and community leaders to exercise restraint and engage in peaceful dialogue in order to prevent a further deterioration of the fragile situation.

      Not Balanda mistake, it is your mistake you cowardice stupid Dinka men. You always claim SPLA to be your mother Dinka Army.
      1. when a dinka person has a problem with any other tribe man, he will always says, "my x is a soldier he kill u" Now what again, every tribe in South Sudan will think that any SPlA action is in support to Dinka tribe. Stop crying now you spoil the nature of the Army.

        Mohamd,
        My worried is that the innocent Balanda will be just hurt with something that they don’t know. I’m very sure that many properties and lives will be spoiled if in fact they murdered Dinka in darkness. That is my worried.

        Mahamed or mamook you are alergic to Dinka but using your hitrad language against them will not solve problem.Do you know what wau main in Dinka language? If other tribes think Wau is belong to them without Dinka that is impossible and these were people creating problems i Wau now against Dinka.

            Mahamed Dinka are not claiming Wau though it name mean something for them. Dinka are multicultural tribes who were love to stay with any tribe include yours and I think one of your family member may be living with Dinka man and that could be reason your ass is itchy

        You pple always get things wrong. The whole mess in this country should be counted to the SPLM led gov’t instead of putting it on innocent tribes. What is the relationship b/n the gov’t’s proposal to transfer Wau county to Baggari and Dinka tribe or Belanda? Why not hold those SPLM thugs responsible? Or is it more better for us to discuss tribalism?

          Do you feel comfortable when you fail to know your enemy and blame the innocent person or what? The great enemy here is the SPLM led mafias, those who use to make wrong decisions and try to force them on pple with the usage of dead man ideas. Wau county should remain thereas it was, but let us unite the forces of change and wait for 2015 and say a big no to the "MAFIAS" of the SPLM

      And our leadership continues to keep quiet as usual & he is letting the security of our once, the most secure state in our country get out of control as we can all see. And if the failings of pres. Kiir are pointed out, than when his Juba security apparatus bristles at nothing but to see the blood of those who pointed out at his leadership failings. UN is pres. Second apparatus, here we go!

        I will be damned if our S Sudan’s leadership is not just another Mobuto Seseko-like leadership! When the country is the only by name & the brutal presential authority reigns around the pres. surrounds. Mobuto faired better because he was a trained journalist, our cowboy is proving again & again, he knows nothing about running a country! He is being misled by his cronies here & there. Pathetic!

    What is happening in Wau is completely unacceptable. Those who are inciting violence among communities will be held responsible for war crime sooner or later. It is very disturbing that the government of South Sudan is downplaying what is happening in Wau town.
    May God bless the people of South Sudan.

    Having seen that the governor started to incite his tribesmen to attack Balanda because they do not want Dinka in their state. There is a romour going around that same night they went and planted 6 dead bodies of their tribesmen as evidence against Balanda. U did not heard/being told by ur savage brothers what Ur uncle Salva Mathok said in wau? He went to Balanda village&brought 2 dinkas alive!

      If that is all you brew that the Dinkas work on your farms & you want them out, then you are making a fateful mistake. If you have your sponsors who lecture your people that you people own Wau? Then prepare your damn ass & your people to go back to CAR & Congo. You don’t have any damn right in Wau. Now we are getting our enemies who have been pestering us all along!!

        It is now apparent that what is happening in Wau is a work of those who think they can unseat the pres. by agitations. Nice try though. Even people who are not going with the pres. will not go with these stooges 100%. I for one will go & fight these stooges in Wau if that is what they sinisterly want. We don’t want any foreigners in our country in any colour or form with their shams democracy.

    The governor wants to water murkier so people gets distracted as to what happened to protesters. Savages because mok mapi(chicken brain) felt in the trap, and now I don’ t think Balanda will allow them to work on their farms anymore. George Bol just quick question, what is this relationship between Balanda & Dinka like before? Parasitic/both sides benefit from each other?

    Hahaha Mohamed, I thought u r one of the savages trying to pull my leg because everyone here on this website have seen the video. In the video, u see clearly a savage giving order brainless army to fire on unarmed protesters. I am sure the governor is going to deny giving order to shot and it will end up on poor SPLA, they will be arrested but release later. no justice at all and no shame.

    To hell with those who are encouraging tribalism in this country. There is no single difference between them and the SPLM mafias. The like of Dinka Dominated SPLM are the ones destorting the good name of our army simple because they related it to the name of the tribe. You pple stop encouraging tribalism and let us unite the forces of change to save this country from those mafias of the SPLM
