January 9, 2013 (JUBA) - Authorities in Rumbek, the capital of Lakes State has denied allegations from Unity State’s Payinjiar County that the Lakes State government is behind cross border cattle raids.

Abraham Mayen Kuc, the Commissioner of Rumbek Central County blamed his counterpart of Payinjiar for not cooperating with him.

Mayen noted that trading accusations "will not help us at all" and that they needed "to unite as [a] government to combat cattle raiders as a team and as a one system under one government, under one constitution instead with waste time accusing each another”.

Lakes State "is not aware of an attack move toward Unity state in Makur Village of Payinjiar County”, Mayen said, adding that it was a national duty to fight cattle raiding and disarm civilians.

Mayen said that security forces had captured four civilians wearing military uniforms "sometime ago", implying that just because the raiders wore military uniforms does not mean they were members of the South Sudanese army (SPLA).

The SPLA spokesperson, Colonel Philip Aguer, has also denied that the military is behind any cattle raiding attacks. Aguer told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday that there are criminals who dress in army uniform to tarnish the image of the SPLA.

Commissioner Mayen said he has suggested to his colleague in Payinjiar County should travel to his county to see if they can identify any of their cows in the local cattle camps. Mayen said he would provide security for those from Lakes State who wanted to search Rumbek Central County for their cattle.

    Death every where in the south!! I told you the south failed Einstein Relativity Theory and now is heading to hell faster than the light speed itself!
    Just hand over Al-Hilo to Arab/Jalaba and that speed will slow down dramatically and will revive the validity of Einstein Relativity Theory again!

        Dear Southernes, I don’t think it’s good ideas to kill ourselves beacuse of cattle that we have. for those who need cattle why you guys go to North Sudan to fight and bring more cattle and kill more as you want and we can thank you for for killing Arab and take they belonging

    A thief has no right to complain about what he has stolen when the owner come to take it back from him. The Payinjiar cattle raiders always loot cattle from Lakes state. They are cause of cattle raiding, if there are some cattle raiders from somewhere that came to loot theirs that how what you get easily goes.
    If you don’t like yours to be looted you stop looting other properties.
