January 31, 2013 (BOR) - Three people are said to have been killed and three others wounded in an attack by unknown gunmen on Nyuak payam [district] on Wednesday morning, according to the Commissioner of Twic East County, Dau Akoi Jurkuch.

“Another tragedy, it was an attack on women and men who were in the bush, cutting thatching grass. Two women and a man were killed and another three including a woman were injured”, Akoi told Sudan Tribune from Panyangoor.

Commissioner Akoi accused members of David Yau Yau’s rebel group of carrying out the attack.

At Bor Civil Hospital where the wounded were taken, Ajah Manyuon, described how she "narrowly" escaped after being surrounded by a group of men armed with guns, machetes, and spears wearing green camouflage uniform similar to that of the South Sudanese army.

“Many of them surrounded me. One person was about to shoot me but the rest talked to him, and he took the machete and hit me on the head, there was too much bleeding, so I fell down and he hit me for the second time."

Ajah said that she pretended to be dead in order to survive.

"They kicked me three times, and they saw me lifeless, so they left”, she explained to Sudan Tribune in Bor.

She claimed her attackers spoke to each other in the Murle language, the tribe from which Yau Yau hails and the community that he has recruited from for his rebellion.

The men, who were carrying dried pieces of meat and water cans, had disappeared back into the bush by the time she was able to get up and return back to her house.

“At home I was told that the same people killed three others in the same place I went to”, she added.

Maluong Mayom, a 28-year-old-man, another eyewitness said he was shot in the arm by a group of armed men at short range, but he managed to runaway before they approached him.

“I was alone in the forest, the bush is thick and before I begun cutting the tree, I heard the feet steps, as I tried to look in that direction, I felt the power of the bulletin in [my] arm."

After being shot he dropped to the flaw and escaped in the opposite direction, he said, meaning that he did not get a good look at his attackers.

However, he was still certain that his attackers "must be from [the] Murle" tribe.

Violence related to cattle raiding and revenge attacks mainly between the Murle, Dinka and Nuer has killed around 2,000 people over the last two years in Jonglei, according to UN figures.

Since March last year the South Sudan army (SPLA) has been attempting to disarm the population with mixed results. Some communities accuse the army of providing them with adequate protection after they have disarmed leaving them vulnerable to group who avoided the process.

David Yau Yau’s first rebellion began in 2010 when he failed to win the seat representing Pibor in the state parliament. He accepted an amnesty in 2011 but rebelled again in April 2012, allegedly with the backing of Sudan.

Khartoum denies backing rebel groups in South Sudan but unidentified helicopters have been seen by the UN landing in areas on Pibor County controlled by Yau Yau; evidence, the SPLA says, that Khartoum is using his rebellion to destabilise the nation that split from Sudan 18 months ago.

    WE must not accused Murle for nothing. How do they know that it is the murle. Maybe they are Athor soldiers or even Dinka who attacked them for other reasons. Putting everything on Murle will not solve our problems. first of all the woman does not speak Murle, how did she know that they talk in Murle. She is Dinka and she understand the language, this is clear evident that the attackers are Dinkas

          You are very silly, Ok" you don’t know how many tribes were fought in sudan against Arabs. And that’s why there are Dinkas who have perminant seats in the government. These are as follow: 1. President Kirr Mayardit. Perminant seat.
          2. Speaker eWani Iga. Perminat seat.
          3. Daniel Awet Akot. Perminent seat.
          4. Kuol Manyang Juok. Perminant seat. Dr.Riak rebellion and rest of commanders.

      THE PUNISHIMENT WHICH GOD GIVE TO ALL DINKAS IS TO KILL EACH OTHERS.
      THE WORLD IS TOO TIRED OF THEIR CRIMES.

    It will take sometime for Murle entirely to understand civilization because almost all of them are illiterate.The government of South Sudan need to provide education to Murle kids so that they taste what it takes to be human.What I hate from them is when the war is wage against them,they men run away crazy without resistant. This bothering me and let me think almost all of them are coward.

    Hit and run in the bush is not a fight, it’s just a coward fight. men attack and must expect resistant but what kind of fight is Murle now really?. SPLA must deploy SPLA in a water point in Pibor areas and deployed forces in Tingiling, Gilo, Akobo, Ajuara, Machbol, and the Ethiopia border whether Yau Yau will not be caught alive!

      The idea of saying that Murle or other tribes can not rule as they don’t know how to build thatched hut is completely wrong.The comment was made by George Bol and I believe it is in line with "Bor ideology of being born to rule." You are joking my friend,Murle are just criminals,but they can rule provided that they hail from Jonglei State.

    Those bandits should be disciplined.Those thugs should be disciplined.The police of Jonglei which is dominated by students and women who are living in East Africa should be reformed so that a strong police is established.

MAPOUR,I GREE WITH WHAT YOU WROTE TODAY BUDDY.MOST OF OUR POLICE FORCES ARE NOT PHYSICALLY PRESENT IN THE STATE.THE FEW WHO ARE AROUND DON’T EVEN WANT TO RISK THEIR LIVES IN SCOURING THE FORESTS IN SEARCH OF THE MURLE PARASITES.ALL THE CIVILLIANS ARE TRAUMATIZED,JUST HEARING THE NAME OF MURLE WILL SEND THEM PACKING FOR COVER.
