January 21, 2013 (RUMBEK) - Authorities in Rumbek, the capital of South Sudan’s Lakes state have resumed forceful disarmament after sectional clashes erupted in its Rumbek Central County for the first time.

On January 18, Amothnhom and Panyon inter-clans clashes in the state left more than 25 people dead and about 30 who sustained gunshot wounds were admitted to Rumbek civil hospital.

Following the outbreak of violence, Lakes state governor Chol Tong Mayay ordered the South Sudanese army (SPLA) and South Sudan Police Services (SSPS) to launch forceful disarmament in three counties comprising of Rumbek central, Cueibet and Rumbek east and arrest those responsible on both sides of the conflict.

The move came after an emergency meeting held by Lake state’s council of ministers to discuss how to respond to the latest violence.

While Lakes state committee leaders blame the SPLA for allegedly selling firearms to pastoral youth, army spokesman Philip Aguer dismissed the accusation.

Recently, about 10 people died in Cueibet county, located in western part of Lakes state, when a group of heavily armed Gok Dinka youth killed seven SPLA soldiers in Malual-chum cattle camp.

Lakes state information minister Charles Badiri Mayen has supported the government’s decision on forceful disarmament.

“We must disarm all armed civilian by all cost,” he said.

Authorities say the clashes were sparked by disagreements over grazing areas between rival cattle herding groups.

      The govt should pay their soldiers with avery good payment,so that the soldiers can not sell the guns to the cattles keepers,due to the low payment this can exist among the govt officials and the soldiers.

    unscheduled plan does not succeed, so it is important for Mr. former governor to plan this before inter_ clans clashes. It was abruptly announced that there would be disarmament after so many lives lost. it is failure of two figures, the former Governor and the current commissioner of Rumbek Central county to bring peace between Panyon and Amothnhom clans because they are belong to this two clans.
