February 13, 2013 (RUMBEK) - Authorities in Lake state’s Rumbek North county (Maper) say four people have been killed and another wounded in attacks carried out by suspected cattle raiders from Unity state.

The attack occurred at Wunliet on Wednesday morning at 6am, with fighting continuing until about 6pm the same day.

The attackers are believed to be from the Mayendit and Panyijar counties in Unity state.

Authorities confirmed that 16 attackers were killed during the incident which overwhelmed county inhabitants with fear. All cattle were later recovered.

Official county spokesman Peter Makuei Tinyjok said that armed Nuer youth had attacked the Pakam community at Wunliet, about 3kms from the county headquarters. He confirmed four people were killed and another person sustained gunshot wounds.

Makuei added: “The situation is very tense in Rumbek North county.”

Since military caretaker governor Major-General Matur Chut Dhuol assumed office after his predecessor was sacked by presidential decree, Rumbek North county has repulsed three separate cattle raids.

The latest attack brings the total to four, with the incident raising complex questions about the caretaker governor’s tough new security reform measures and the protection of disarmed populations in the state.

Last week, Dhuol threatened to summons his counterpart in Unity before the president if he failed to control cattle raiders in his state.

Lakes state remains a flashpoint for violent cross-border cattle raids. Earlier this month, two people were injured after rustlers believed to be from Unity state raided 900 heads of cattle.

In January, Rumbek North was the scene of more violent clashes, with four people killed and two others sustaining gunshot wounds when cattle raiders also alleged to be from the neighbouring state struck.

Meanwhile, Unity state authorities have urged their counterparts in Lakes state to investigate circumstances under which over 8,000 animals were raided from Payinjiar county in November last year.

More than 10 people died and five others were wounded in the attack, carried out by a group allegedly clad in SPLA uniforms.

One of Lakes state’s most remote counties Rumbek North is located about 120kms from the capital Rumbek, with poor communications making information from the region difficult to obtain.

        Don’t blame them, these dinka’s are suffering from certain disease, the cutting of their face and knocking of the tooth caused this all. Even kirr is suffering from the problem.

    Those raiders need a bitter leson, that’s what you can get as a pay back especially for those who have decided to live their lifes on a run by grabing other people belongings. Mr. vice president Riek Machar should die of shame because his very people are the one staring up hostilities against their peaceful neighbours. The only person that can make these craps people understand is mr. VP

      what have you learnt, through headline and pargraph? how do you blamed Rumbek people. While attacked came externally. How do you mean, they will do what? They would have to sleep and leave their cattles to attackers?

      Panthou, your judgement is unclear here, if you re-read the article again, you will understand that the Unity state raiders were the ones who attacked the Lakes state. And assume that you were born a priest and somebody attacked you, couldn’t you defend yourself?. The Lakers were just defending themselves and hence led to the death which unfairly become their condemnation in your tongue !

        Though I was born in Rumbek, I had been committedly commending somewhere else about how to liberate Panthou/Heglic from false Arab’s ownership, but I could never curse them for their political ambivalences. so be fairl always.Sorry for the death of both Lakers and unity men.

    This is nothing but completely "Cows War"!!
    The south is under heavy cattle war now, the root cause of this war is well known because SPLA/M thugs left the south with no money, no food, no jobs and lack for the basic needs for survival and people find themselves with no option but to fight each others over cows to survive!!

      Visionless and SPLA/M Thieves are driving the south to hell no doubt, instead of deploying troops inside the burning states to stop the cattle raiding and restore security they deployed their troops across the huge border with Arab/Jalaba, instead of expelling out SPLA-N and normalize their relation with Sudan so they can come out

      This report is one-side history dude, as brother Nuer Empire said above, there is no way in this world Jaang would only lost 4 persons if Nuer youth actual went there for attack. Imagine 6am in Sudan, most people were still sleeping at this time and battle went on to 6pm. 12 hours battle would have been causes over 200 lives each side and uncountable civilians (women and Children).

    What I know is that all Dinka’s are traumatized, and it’s caused by their useless tradition of knocking tooth down and the cutting if the face. There are some minor veins on human head, once it’s destroyed; it blocks the booth in brain used for transmitting the bred nous. There the person becomes upset. That’s why when you see a dinka man traveling to Kampala for e.g. he carries a blanket, metres

      even bed sheet and he becomes confused all the time, the problem is the head. And that’s what our current president is suffering from. Once you have this sickness, managing it is not an easy thing. So to prevent it, let them stop their useless tradition, stop drinking, even the milk, and they should keep a limited number of cattle otherwise they not leave better life! Take this if you are dinka.
