January 9, 2013 (JUBA/BOR) - Authorities have ordered an investigation into the deaths this week of an Ethiopian and a Sudanese man in Bor, the state capital of South Sudan’s Jonglei state.

On Wednesday January 9, a businessman from Sudan’s western Darfur region, Mr. Walid, was found dead in his house by a neighbour. The man is thought to have been dead for three days before he was discovered after a bad smell began to come from his room.

Mr. Walid’s body was taken to Bor hospital where he was declared deceased. His body was later handed over to the Darfuri community in order for him to be buried.

According to a senior police officer, who refuse to be named, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of South Sudan’s police has been tasked with investigating the deaths of Mr. Walid and of an Ethiopian man, whose body was discovered in Marol Market on the morning of Sunday 6 January.

The Ethiopian national who worked as a motorcycle-taxi - Boda-Boda - driver was found hanging in the market but witnesses say that it did not appear to be a suicide and may have been to cover-up the true cause of death.

Police officials refused to comment publicly on Sunday but officials speaking anonymously said they had arrested a number of people for questioning in relation to the murder.

The young Ethiopian man is believed to have lived in Bor since 2010, having first worked in a bar and hotel owned by an Ethiopian businessman as a waiter, before he joined the boda-boda business. His name has not been made public by the Bor police.

    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!

      Jalaby, don’t be an hypocritical fool; how many people killed in Sudan in less than 48 hours? You forgot when Darfur fighters repulse SAF forces leaving 75 people dead, 11 vehicles captured and 25 vehicles destroyed! Second to that, a fight among Missariyas that killed 80 people. In those two incidents, you were nowhere to comment because it was too hard for you lie about it.
