The cause of fighting was a dispute over the ownership of an area of grassland, known as Toch in the Dinka language, between the Amothnhom and Panyon clans.

The clashes have left 10 people dead, with 13 people sustaining gunshot wounds.

Lakes state’s minister of local government and law and enforcement Benjamin Makuer Mabor said South Sudanese police and military forces had been dispatched to separate the fighting clans and that the situation was now under control.

“We have sent a good number of South Sudan Police Services (SSPS) and Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) forces into toch land of Marial-bek and Gun to control the situation,” said Makuer.

He said the groups involved in the conflict are now increasing, adding that suspected ring leaders from all sides will be captured.

“This fighting is no longer Panyon and Amothnhom clashes alone, it is Rup and Kuei clashes,” said Makuer.

Twelve people were killed and 23 wounded as a result of inter-communal violence in Rumbek central county in Lakes state last November after fighting broke out in a cattle camp 34km north-east of the state capital, according to the official.

Makuer old Sudan Tribune at the time that the conflict was alleged to have begun after young men from the Panyon and Amothnhon communities of the Dinka ethnic group exchanged verbal insults.

      Series of killings in Lakes State in matters of days, weeks or months without end in sight is a disheartening saga. The State Government must adopt new measures to end this human carnage. People causing these horrors might be orgainzed groups. Additionally, they may be in the paycheck of some unscrupulous politicians with an intention to destablize that state and discredit its leadership as well.

          I have not accused politicians. What I am saying is that "some" may be behind those nasty incidents. I don’t believe events in cattle camps are accidental. Why accidental at this time? Why is rate of killings on the rise when MPs there stand helpless & ineffective? Where is the Government when its active presence means law and order?Don’t you think one can suspect their complicity?

              I partly agree with you. We are on the same page but note that all events of cattle raiding in South Sudan have no marked differences as to reasons, places, time, tactics or weapons used and other prime movers to effect them. Not all writers attract all readers. Like goods consumers, readers have their preferences__tastes or dislikes.

                    I have not read Ramba Ambago’s latest article on late Isaiah Abraham. Ripping up a situation in a comical but sarcastic manner is what we always refer to as satire.

      Master and alike,mind you that when southerner took up arms in 1986 it was due to national calls to defend southerners from the common enemy arab. And that intensive and discriminative enrollment into the army civilians is the root cause of arms possession by civilian, so the fact remains arab cause.
