The 5 August incident occurred in Pacong payam (district), about 20km from Rumbek Central county.

According to the police criminal investigation department (CID), the attack was in retaliation for the death of Maker Mabor, the paramount chief of the Gony clan killed in 2002.

Rumbek East has been the scene of tensions between the Athoi and Gony clans, with the latest incident raising fears of further violence among the two sections.

Crowned by relatives on Wednesday, Chut, 28, is expected to carry out the responsibilities of his father who served as paramount chief since 1987.

There are growing calls for South Sudan’s president, Salva Kiir, to relieve Lakes state’s caretaker governor, Matur Chut Dhuol, from his position, but these calls have so far been overlooked.

    The reporter,

    If you don’t know how to report, please stop it. You are very outrageous by disqualifying your education skills. Get information correctly and put as it is, don’t mixed up or bring in unnecessary information. For example, Athoi is a general name for two fighting clans and Gony is the section whose paramount chief was killed by Thuyic section. Who requested the relief of the Governor

      Dear Martin,
      You put it rightly. The media is corrupted and the worst website is Sudan tribune. The reporters and writters of Sudan tribune are enermies of peace and some are self imposed reporters. Whatever they write and report daily consitute feud and war.

    To new paramount chief Tuol,Dear Tuol your words and actions will either weep away the tears and enhance the tears of your people whom you are ruling and I wish you to be impartial to all Athoi despite the killers of your father because a leader cannot take side and I would also like to tell the instigators that ,anyone who like the late chief may avoid the ill plans for the avenge n allow govn.

Athoi chut oyee,Aliamtoc one oyee.
