August 24, 2014 (RUMBEK) – The daughter of Lakes state’s military caretaker governor, Maj-Gen Matur Chut Dhuol, has been arrested for having killed a pregnant woman in Rumbek East county in Pacong payam (district), about which is 12 miles from Rumbek Central.

The criminal investigation department (CID) in Rumbek Central county has confirmed that incident.

One senior officer in the department told Sudan Tribune that it was “unfortunate” and “unbelievable” that such an incident had occurred in the presence of security forces on ground in Pacong.

“Yes, it is so shocking enough – the daughter of our governor, Maj-Gen Matur Chut Dhuol, has killed a pregnant woman,” he said.

The victim has been named as mother-of-six Akuac Wol, the widow of the late Agok Anhiem Nguac.

Relatives of the decease mother of six children maintained silent after the governor daughter identified as Along Matur Chut Dhuol being arrested by CID after she was confirmed as the murder.

According to the CID, the incident occurred after a quarrel broke out between Wol and the governor’s daughter, Along Matur Chut Dhuol.

It’s understood the pair exchanged insults after goats from Wol’s farm strayed onto Dhuol’s property and began eating her crops.

It is allegedly that Wol dropped to the ground and died after Dhuol kicked her in the stomach.

Authorities transported Wol to hospital for a post-mortem, with doctors confirming that Wol had died as a result of being kicked in the stomach.

Targeted killings are on the rise across Rumbek Central, Rumbek East, Rumbek North and Cueibet counties.

Arbitrary arrests of Thuyic chiefs and threats to local media are also on the rise.

South Sudan’s president, Salva Kiir, has so far overlooked calls to relieve the governor.

Local police say state authorities have become increasingly isolated, with the public refusing to share information with law enforcement officers, making in difficult to investigate killings and maintain law and order in the region.

    Incompetent journalist! you should not report this incident as targeted killing; this crime is called homicide if at all it had happened as u alleged. Moreover, you should learn to differentiate news-writing from opinion, meaning, u must maintain element of objectivity.

      this should be treated as a simple altercation that led to the death of one opponent. cattle settlement or forgiveness will be consider in this case.

        Why?

        Murder is murder.

        Commit the crime and pay the penalty no matter who you are. Even a constitutionally elected President can not be allowed to get away with murder.

    She shouldn’t be treated like a special person rather than a criminal. She’d kill and therefore deserve to be sentence to 10 yrs in prison. No other mean of restoring justice in the innocent pregnant woman’s case

    Very unfortunate. You know pregnant women are short-tempered, fragile as they are. That Lady should have control her anger. According to the Law, two persons have died. May the Lawmakers treat this case in a very responsible way. It’s an accident that any person can do. Sorry for the death of that poor woman.

    It’s very unfortunate incident indeed for Governor’s
    Daughter Along to involve herself in such situation
    Now the law must take it cost as she take the law in
    Her own hand two people pass on a result of kicking
    The pregnant lady. She is a murderer and have send
    Message across the country that her father can’t
    Manage his family affair rather than state affairs the
    President must do something.
