October 9, 2016 (JUBA) - South Sudanese President, Salva Kiir, has dispatched a high-level delegation to Yei state over the rising insecurity in the area south of the national capital, Juba, where roads have been blocked by armed local forces allied to the SPLM-In Opposition.

The delegation which flew into Yei by air on Saturday is tasked to find out the causes of the rising insecurity in the state and to come out with a way through which the situation can be addressed.

President Kiir, according to multiple presidential aides, has mandated the delegation led by former governor of Central Equatoria state, Clement Wani Konga, who is the current presidential advisor for special affairs with Daniel Awet Akot, presidential advisor on political affairs, to assess the security situation in the area, particularly the causes behind the targeted killings and massive displacement of civilians in the state, which has been blamed on government forces.

Also the area’s members of council of states, national parliament and security organs are among the delegates.

The delegation arrived Yei town, the administrative headquarters of the new state, on Saturday afternoon by air, just hours after commercial vehicles fell into ambush by gunmen, resulting in the death of up to 21 people. Several others fled into the bush while many others sustained injuries.

The identity of the group responsible for the attacks remains unclear. Government accuses dissident armed youth from the area allied to the former First Vice President Riek Machar of allegedly being responsible for the attacks and called for regional designation of the group as “terrorists.”

Yei State Information Minister, Stephen Lado Onesmo, confirmed the arrival of the delegation and said they are expected to hold a public rally on Monday after meeting with security organs, members of state parliament, religious leaders, and traditional leaders in Yei.

He said the purpose of the visit of the delegation to the area is to investigate the root causes of the ongoing violent conflict in order to find amicable approaches to the problem in the state and to take the grievances of the people of Yei to President Kiir.

The state government under the leadership of the former Yei County Commissioner, turned governor, David Lokonga Moses, said it prioritizes peaceful dialogue as a viable means to resolving the conflict.

They have been clashes between rival forces in Yei state with the opposition forces threatening to close all the roads in the state and attack towns.

    President Kiir, instead of delegations, you should send soldiers to protect these innocents people. These criminals or terrorists must be brought to justice. They must face military courts and all of them must be executed. Please don’t play with criminals. You should learn from John Garang and how he controls the population during the civil war. This is not a time for delegations.

      Please replace Paul Malong. Because I believe u would divert all Anyoors from the rest of the Equatoria to confront the Yei issue at this point then the next thing you realise is, all the rest of Equatoria Towns are on fire! FYI, 3000 Anyoors were brought from Juba to Yei at the end of August 2016. Do you mean to say they’re all finished.RIP to those innocent souls walah!

        Stupid equatorial number one, I joined the spla movement when I was 9 years old. I did not see you anywhere in equatorial. I was in the headquarter of the spla before I came face to face with the Arab soldiers at the age 12 around Juba areas including Yei. Therefore, I got all my ranks by fighting Arab soldiers not civilians. Do your research terrorist.

          Guys, let me tell you somethings you are missing and how the world operate. The more you kill innocents people, the more the world will ignore your situations or your rights. They would rather support what you called Dinka government or president kiir government. Remember, machar was popular two years ago until he ordered the massacre of innocents people and the world leaders condm him. Now, he is

I am strong because I protect innocent citizens and that’s why I have over 1000 Nuer soldiers in my unit. Please advise your people to stop killing innocents people. Also Dinkas people are being recognized by the communities around the world for their bravery and peace loving.

        The more you argue with a jienge idiot, the more you become an idiot like the jienge himself. He is unteachable, obstinate and simply a dummy. Bro, there’s noble work to clean Equatoria of this filth. They’ve refused to grow up and have small baby-like brains and want to be babysitted all their lives. No please jienge go home to the luaks and leave Equatoria to develop.

    Dinka Defender General,

    Note that the citizens of Yei do not support stooges. They do not support or condone occupational forces. They have every right to defend their people and land from intruders who want to change their social set up. No amount of power and force can defeat them. The Arabs tried but they failed so you too will fail.

      What are you talking about? I grew up in Equatoria area and you can not tell about "the citizens of Yei." May I ask you question? Where were you during the civil war? Whoever you called "intruders" gave you all the freedoms you enjoy today and liberated you from Arabs. Without Dinkas, you could still living under Khartoum government. Remember, many tribes including Equatoria helped Khartoum.

          Mr. Kiir President, you need to send 5 hummers with machine guns to monitor the situation in Yei or to protected the innocents from these criminals. The road must be clear from these terrorists or bandits within 72 hours or you can let me deal with these criminals once and for all. Criminals never learn from lecture, but from punishments or execution. Insecurity must be stop.

              Enough is enough. The greediness of still cattle, still money, killing the innocent people of South Sudan needs to be brought to an end. Why don’t you go back and develop your own areas? Why do you love looting people’s property? When are you going to respect people’s property? Just thing about it.

Also tell us, were they regular SPLA forces who liberated Yei or they were newly recruits? If so which SPLA Commander mobiled those recruits??

        You are just a fool. Did you go to fight Arabs in order to lord over other tribes. Note that no tribe begged you to liberate them from the Arabs. Do really no the history of military campaign of setting South Sudan free? Please revise your notes.

          You are one of the most revolting characters on this site precisely because you falsely assume the moral high ground and seem to enjoy (quiet hypocritically) pointing your grubby little fingers at others with buzzwords. When are you going to condemn the Nuer for stealing Nation size territories from the Anyuak, Burun and even Shilluk!?

            Khent, good news you have resurfaced from obscurity to answer my question. What took such large number of Dinka family to Yei? Why were they not escorted if several military convoys have been attacked and destroyed along this route? Why the Dinkas have not condemned the killing of other tribes at the hands of the Jienge.

        So you´re a "jienge ta Yei" like Kiir himself? If you grew in Yei as you claim, then you would have civilized, clean and good manners like the Equatorians. But you´ve never seen Yei and so you dream of it. Forget man, it is over. If we see you in Yei, we shall hunt you down like a bush rat. Just keep to your dirty luaks and wait for jellaba masters to take you as slaves.

            Well, I am happy that a jienge chooses a Bari name-Wani so he can claim to be also an Equatorian. Call yourself., lual, Mading, Yor or whatever jienge names. You can live for decades in Equatoria, but we will always know you as jienges. They say, however long a lizard lies in water, it will NOT be a crocodile. A jienge is and will remain a jienge PERIOD.

Over 50% of jienges have jellaba blood or ancestry. Most jienges were shamasha selling cheap Turkish shoes along Sharah Jumhurya and claim to have fought. How old were you then , ya aryan jienge?

You now call Nyijwad ’new Fangak’- and you stole this land from the Shilluk after Othown Dak allowed you to take refuge in their land when floods ravaged old Fangak. Hypocrites!

    The problem in South Sudan is that some people believe that they are the only people who liberate the country SOUTH SUDAN, while South Sudan was every bodies effort for the country to gain it’s independency

However, I took many leadership courses throughout the civil war. I knew from bottom of my heart that both education and freedom were important to me. Therefore, I don’t have to go to school to get an education.

    I joined the army (SPLA) when I was 10 yrs old,
    I fought Sudan civil war for 19 Year,
    and on the other hand I obtained my Degree when I was 30 Years old. The question is When did you fought and when did you go to school?

I urge all non Dinka tribes in South Sudan to arm themselves and kill Dinkas where ever they are, then we shall see who will win at the end. Dinkas thought they the only killers. This is yet the beginning .
