Those wounded, officials said, were rushed to Rumbek hospital in critical conditions.

“It is a shameful attack made by a hyena. We have 13 people suffering from hyena bite being admitted in Rumbek hospital and 2 elderly people dead,” a police officer told Sudan Tribune by phone.

“Those bitten by this hyena were mainly women, the elderly and children,” he added
.
A group of activists have questioned recent security reforms initiated by Lakes state caretaker governor, Maj. Gen Matur Chut Dhoul.

Moses Majok, a Lake state citizen, said the hyena attack was a sign that the police and army in Rumbek did not care about its citizens.

He accused uniformed forces of allegedly persuading their personal interests at the expense of innocent people’s lives and wellbeing.

“This is very bad, the arms and police in Lakes are operating under cover of their interest. How come hyena tour village’s whole night biting people and no response from army or police to protect innocent people from hyena?” said Majok.

Several activists, traditional authorities, students and intellectuals have repeatedly called for the removal of Lakes state’s governor, but their pleas have largely been ignored by president Salva Kiir.

        Even a group of Hyenas can destroy four villages in Dinka land. What a coward community who afraid to fight simple animal called Hyenas. Call for Ugandan force to rescue you from those Hyenas. I congratulate Hyenas community for hard own battles.

          Ladies and Gentlemen, local news from Radio Stations in Rumbek blame the Gok people of Cuiebet for sending that human turned hyena to kill the Agars. The Cuiebet’s Gok tribe are happy of their success to have come up with this new strategy for fighting their ememy, an they said, they will soon unlease as many hyenas as possible to also attack the Agars in the Diaspora.

      Gat Kan,
      Are u brave enough to fight de galant government forces/SPLA without Khartoum backing? Accordkng to your interpretation of bravery, u have to rebel against your movement (1991-2002) and government (December 2013) and flee to Khartoum as it happened before and now in order to be called brave. If u returned to the movement in 2002, why do u think you will not come for pardon as usual?
