December 29, 2012 (BOR) - Seven people have been killed and two wounded in a raid in Mareng, the Duk county headquarters, Phillip Thon Leek, the area member of parliament told Sudan Tribune on Saturday.

The attack, which took place on Friday, is suspected to have been carried out by Murle raiders loyal to rebel leader David Yau Yau. Over 180 cows, according to Thon, were stolen during the raid.

Yau Yau rebelled against South Sudan’s ruling party (SPLM) after elections - in April 2010 when, as an independent candidate, he lost his bid to represent the Gumuruk–Boma constituency in Pibor county at the Jonglei State Assembly.

Juba accuses Khartoum of supporting Yau Yau, a claim Khartoum repeatedly denies.

Thon, an ex-Governor of South Sudan’s Jonglei state, said he was in close contact with the County Commissioner since the attack occurred, adding that the army and youth in the area are still perusing the raiders in an attempt to recover the stolen cattle.
 
Among the people killed, two were from Pan-Lual, two from Pathel and one from Duor areas of Duk while two are yet to be identified, the lawmaker said.

He however said he believes the two unidentified bodies were “probably from Athoon” of Duk.
 
“He [commissioner] hinted to me that the those pursuing fell into a Murle ambush and three persons are feared to have been killed,” Thon, who represents Duk in the National Legislative Assembly.
 
“This attacking rebel force must have been a well organised, formidable one given their tactics in countering the pursuers,“ he added.
 
This month alone, Mareng has witnessed seven similar incidences related to cattle raid, John Tiop Lul, one of the youth leaders in Duk, told Sudan Tribune.
 
Attempts to reach the commissioner of Duk were unsuccessful.

Jonglei has long been subject to cattle rustling violence. A proliferation of small arms in the wake of more than two decades of civil war and mass migration after South Sudan’s secession has made cattle rustling more prolific and bloody.

      Let us accept the idea of creating buffer zone along the border between the Murle and Dinka so that cross border raids are prevented by the army, but the Dinka in Bor want all the army deployed in Pibor to carry out Satanic agenda of illuminating the Murle , and that have made things even worst for the Dinka themselves due retaliatory raids by the Murle..

        I support another invasion of the Murle. Their land to be invaded by all tribes and that is how they will know the difference between benefits of death and life.

    In order for SPLA/M to resolve the cattle raiding issue in troubled state Jonglei I think SPLA/M are required to shoot down another UN plane working in helping and feeding hungry people in that state!
    Instead of concentrating their effort in building their new state, thieves are busy in supporting the north rebels and busy on how to destroy Sudan!!!

      I think this will lead to one fact that thieves still have the mentality of believing that they still belong to Sudan despite they chose to "fuck-off" and move their asses away from Sudan but the reality on the ground tells us different story!
      All what they were saying before such as:discrimination, slavery, 2nd class citizen, marginalization, etc are nothing but bullshit!

        why can’t you build your new state thieves? why can’t you make it one of the best country in Africa? why you moved it to nasty crap state and jungle just within one year of your independent thieves?!
        I know why, I’ll tell you why, because the south doesn’t have clear identity which sovereigns a nation and makes it a unique and qualify them to build homogenize nation!

          Tell me, what differentiate your identity from Sudanese people identity? you’re not Arab?! Well, how many pure African people and none Arabs live in Sudan and still hold the hot emotional feeling of belonging to the soil of Sudan!
          I think thieves are in fighting with themselves over their identity and can’t find a real answer for the question of who we’re?

            The hidden identity conflict with themselves leads them to mess the situation in the south and harass north!
            I advise thieves to read Dr. Francis Deng book "War of Visions - The Conflict of Idenity in the Sudan"

              Jalaba you are right
              South don’t know their identity and even they don’t know why they fought Arab, killing is not only in Jonglei but also in Juba they are killing themselves because of power and money, they love money instead of peace.
              their weak thinking will never help them just leading them to hell

                  Since CPA/independent people are still dying in SS due to poor leadership SS are not able to rule themselves, they fought for nothing, there will be regime like what happen in Libya if the government is not serious of taking care of it people.

    SPLA still did not call it a last word. If SPLA say enough is enough David yau plus other criminals will be in Juba prison like what had happened to some of the warlords that are serving live in imprisonments. Just a matter of time!

      For Jonglei to be peacefully, SPLA must be deploy in water points in the entire Pibor and Anyuak areas. A battalion of 8,000 must be deployed in the border of Pachala with Gilo, and about 4,000 spla in Saraha tingili and Buma, and 200 in Ajuara river area, and 2000 SPLA in Gambela area and about 5,000 SPLA to sealed the entire Ethiopia with South Sudan. By doing the above, yau Yau head be in Juba

      George Bol, you Dinka Bor usually if something’s happen to you then use SPLA to be protecting Civilians while those few days more than Murle 100 killed and no one report about it’s because your misleading people of South Sudan.
      Why not Dinka Bor themselves who masterminded conflicts they’re doesn’t handle its? The Cowards Dinka Bor better surrenders to Murle.

    South Sudan is a nation among the world’s nations that is the fact. No one will reverse that reality. To those who wish south Sudan bad luck, it will remain a wishful thinking. Yes we have a lot of challenges, but we shall overcome them. Struggle contnue

      Not seven people, but eight and two where wounded, the some day similar attacks happened in Akobo and Nyirol in which death reach upto 19 people in three counties of Jonglei.
      let us forget about the government action against murle but let us look for another way of protecting ourselves instead.

    I believe you are the most foolish literate person in this world. How come for someone who knows th important of life to support semi human being (the murle) who enjoy killing. If you guys are still having that mentality, I bet the murle will remain backward forever less you come for some pieces of advice.
