Speaking to Sudan Tribune from Juba, Jonglei state minister of information Jody Jonglei, revealed they would receive former rebel leader, Yau Yau, at Juba Airport where he will arrive from Pibor payam (district) of Gumuruk.

"Yau Yau is coming to Juba tomorrow (Tuesday) to meet with the government officials, to make sure that peace is accepted," said Jody Jonglei.

Yau Yau’s South Sudan Democratic Movement/Army (SSDM/A) Cobra faction signed a peace deal on 9 May in Addis Ababa.

The signed deal grants to The Greater Pibor, which is the homeland of Murle tribe, a special administrative status to better protect their pasture land and herds of livestock in the immense Jonglei state.

Also a special development fund for Pibor will be created and managed by the South Sudanese presidency.

"This kind of administration will bring peace among the citizens of Jonglei state, they [people of greater Pibor] will government themselves alone," Jody said.

"Issues like cattle raiding and child abduction will stop, because administration will be close to the people", he added.

Yau Yau rebelled four years ago against South Sudan government. The former priest waged war against Juba, claiming an independent state in Pibor and Pochalla counties.

      Bravo DYY.You have at last brought rays of hope to the eyes of the people of Pibor at large who were greatly marginalized by the rein of Dinkacracy characterised by tyrany, dictatotorship and poor international relations.You have indeed offered a nice precedence which Equatorians can emulate to wage their secession demand. To the people of Pibor MABURUK ALEIKUM!

    if the issue of Pibor to become administrative block was the cause of child abduction, cattle raiding and maiming then peace will return to the state and as i know the abduction and cattle raiding is historical thing which don’t have thing to do with politic then these activities will still prevail.

    What yau yau thinking of going to Juba,did you done a good things. South Sudan people you have to be careful, too much forgiveness will bring country back to war as it now , because lack of judiciary system.Those who committed crime against humanity should be brought into justice like Yau yau so that someone will not do something like that again.
