December 19, 2013 (JUBA) - South Sudan’s army (SPLA) acknowledged that it is “not in control of Bor” after forces loyal to Gen. Peter Gatdet Yak overran military bases on Tuesday and took over the town on Wednesday evening.

SPLA spokesperson Col. Philip Aguer said the national army is meeting to discuss its next move in light of the recent development amid growing international concern for the humanitarian situation in Jonglei’s state capital.

The SPLA said on Thursday that Gadet, who was a commander in charge of the SPLA’s 8th Division in Jonglei state, has defected from its ranks.

He reportedly broke off from army ranks over allegations that his tribe, the Nuer, have been targeted in the current tension.

Over the weekend clashes erupted in Juba between units of the presidential guards from competing tribes of the Dinka and Nuer. The fighting spread throughout the city, which lead to the death of at least 500 people, with hundreds more injured.

In a TV appearance on Monday, Kiir accused his former deputy, Riek Machar, who hails from the Nuer tribe, of staging a coup attempt, along with other prominent South Sudanese officials from the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM).

Observers and independent analysts have expressed fears that Gadet’s defection could complicate the security situation in Jonglei where government forces have been battling to exert full control in areas where rebel leader David Yau Yau has remained active since 2012.

In a statement released on Thursday, the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) said the “security conditions in the Jonglei state capital of Bor have deteriorated significantly during the course of the day”.

“UNMISS has received reports that heavy fighting erupted in the city in the wee hours of this morning and continued for four hours. The violence triggered an exodus of civilians out of Bor, and thousands have sought shelter at the mission’s compound on the south-eastern outskirts of the city”, the statement said.

“As is the case in Juba, UNMISS is providing water, sanitation facilities and medical care to civilians who have taken refuge in its Bor compound. A limited number of tents have been erected to house some of these civilians. Late this afternoon, UNMISS staff members reported that heavy weapons fire erupted in a neighbourhood of Bor about a kilometre away from the mission’s compound”, the statement adds.

Residents in Bor fled to nearby bushes and swampy areas across the Nile River.

One resident, who was still hiding within the town, told Sudan Tribune by phone on Thursday that “a huge building is burning in the market”, raising the possibility of looting and destruction around the Bor trade centre of Maror.

Jonglei’s acting governor, John Kong Nyuon, who returned from Juba on Wednesday, is also said to be taking refuge inside the UNMISS camp, while a number of senior state officials have reportedly fled the town with civilians.

South Sudan Red Cross (SSRC) said at least 19 bodies were found on Wednesday, bringing the death toll to 22, including three children who perished after their boat capsized while crossing the Nile River.

        SPLA has been dispatched and will soon take over from Gadet. There was no fighting in Bor, the troops were purely Nuer except a few Dinkas and other tribes, so it is just turning soldiers from being called SPLA into Riek gurilla. Riek came this morning to UNMISS coumpound in Bor pretending to be seeking protection.

    Jalaby with all due respect, this is an internal affairs of South Sudan, which is now is a sovereign state. I think our Govt. should intervene, although Sudan would be badly affected by the impact of any civil war in SS, like the one recently underway. SAF cannot not take part in this ugly fight without Int. community green light, otherwise Sudan will face dire consequences.

    Let Kuol Manyang and people of his home defends their own land. Because they are one behind this lust war. My Dinka Maluak please don’t allow your sons to go and die in vain conflict. You have lost many lives during the civil war. But now have lost your 14 miles land through these lusts.

    It is just the beginning Jangs don’t panic yet because the Mighty Naath warriors are marching toward the Juba as we speak to flush out the useless Kirr and his vulture thugs. "Illegal President" is what Dr. Machar described him at best. Bravo Jundi Iraq for knowing the cause of Naath in Jinub you the true naath son.
