June 17, 2014 (RUMBEK) - A revenge attack in Lakes states Cueibet county left at least three people dead and dozens wounded, authorities said Tuesday.

"Yes, it is true three people lost their lives since yesterday when Waat people killed one person at Panyar side as revenge and some one from Panyar came and killed Mathou Agok Mariec while he was sleeping in his house in Cueibet town," said an area police officer.

"This revenge attack has caused panic in Cueibet county as a whole. Now another person from Panyar is reported to have been killed at Kucnyuek cattle camp," he added.

The incident comes barely two days after similar clashes between Pakam and Rup with their associates in Kuei and Nyan left at least 61 people dead in Aguoc cattle camp. The attack was believed to have been a revenge by the Pakam against Rup clans of Rumbek Central county.

In recent months, however, the care taker governor of Lakes state has faced fierce criticism with repeated calls by the population for his resignation. Calls from the population for president Salva Kiir to remove the governor Matur Chut Dhuol have largely been ignored.

    Since the communities in lakes states have gone while, its better the peaceful communities in the area such Aliap, Atuot be transfer back to Bor. their efforts to develop lakes state will always be turned down by this hopeless communities they lives with. the resources that are suppose to be channeled for development will only be concentrated in unrealistic clan ism peace and security initiatives.

      Mr. DDOOGGAA
      Well, I don’t think the problem between Dinkas themselves is concerning others societies in South Sudan.The Nuer’s problems with government is a political problem caused for desperation on leadership by Riek Machar Teny and I think if you are wise enough then, you should hate Riek Machar Teny for causing more problem to Nuer people. whether you hated Dinkas or not Dinka are majority.
