Radio Jonglei is the only radio station still operating in Bor after rebel forces were overran by government troops in the region.

It is the sixth time its office has been targeted by looters since its establishment in 2010.

Police are yet to arrest any suspects in connection to the latest incident.

Malek Gut-nyin, the station’s managing director, said two desktop, computers, a radio mixer and two telephones were among the items stolen.

Gut-nyin told Sudan Tribune by phone from Bor that looters had broken two doors to enter the office before stealing the equipment.

In a separate incident in April last year, two printers, five telephones, two laptops computers and one desktop computer were stolen.

No-one was arrested in connection to the incident, despite the Bor police unit pledging to investigate.

“Last year, it (looting) happened many times, so we are using the police to
secure our equipment,” said Gut-nyin, adding that the latest incident occurred despite the presence of a police officer who was on duty at the time.

Meanwhile, security officers in Bor have pledged to track down the culprits and bring them to face justice.

    The majority of Dinka Bor people are Christians believers but there are unusual always happened in that capital Bor.There was a report that, a house was burn down while, there were people inside house. Some people took kids and sell to Murle people and we Dinka don’t do this but why Dinka Bor did such a things while, they are real Christians? This is abusing our Dinka culture and must be stop.

    THIS INCIDENT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BOR DINKA, SECRETE AGENTS/CRIMINALS ARE ALL OVER S.SUDAN TO TERRORIZE. IF THE SO CALLED PRESIDENTIAL GUARDS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED IN MANY ACCOUNTS IN CAPITAL JUBA TO BE INVOLVED IN LOOTING AND KILLING AT NIGHT. ALSO DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE OF INTIMIDATION/HARRESSMENT OF JOURNALISTS, WHY CAN’T THEY GO TO BOR & OTHER TOWNS UNDER GOVERNMENT CONTROL AND DO THE SAME?
