The call comes following after a letter from a group in Bhar-El-Gazal region warned Equatorians working in the region to quit their jobs or face revenge attacks.

James Mabor Ikau, the head of Bhar el Ghazal students in Uganda urged
South Sudanese community in both regions to desisted from violent attacks and called upon them to embrace peace and unity.

“We call and beg all our community members more especially our brothers (youths) back home or in the region to be in peace and swallow the pain of the lost of people and accept all other tribes to stay with them peacefully,” he told Sudan Tribune.

More than a dozen people were killed in several ambushes along the Yei-Juba and
Nimule-Juba roads by unidentified armed groups from Equatoria region.

Also, students from the Dinka tribe, particularly those from Bhar el Gazal described the targeting of Equatorians as unfortunate, calling on all South Sudanese to work for peace.

“Our people should not be dragged into this senseless thing, we need peace and unity in our country, no more war; its time has gone," said Mabor.

“We condemn in strongest terms these targeted killings and satanic behaviour and urged our government to devised mechanism of protecting innocent people to achieve peaceful co-existence soon,” he stressed.

      Where was this student group as thousands of Nuer, Madi, Fajulu, Moru, Fertit were massacred by jienges? Did this group coordinate with Equatoria or Nuer students to condemn such atrocities? Why now after when jienges are now being targeted that they show concern? That is hypocrisy and bullshit. This is unforgivable.

      Do not masquerade as innocent community. Is Mathiang Anyoor an equatorian outfit? You rape, molest and murder South Sudanese and claim the evil is done by Equatorians! Equatorians are not as uncivilised as you think. What is going on is the work of your youth in uniform so that you lay your blame on Equatorians for ill intentions.

      For your information, Those Dinkas who were killed on Yei-Juba road were killed by the rogue regime under failed leadership of unwanted Salva kiir in order to provoke some Dinkas sections to attacks Equatorias as the they were falsly believe as they were the ones whom killed Dinkas on the Yei-Juba road attack. But frankly speaking, it’s was the government plan.

      Your comment seems like someone who has never been civilized. And shortly to remind you, todays is only one side enjoying the country over another but tomorrow a grieve over the other.

      Dinka`s has taken an initiative to dictate south Sudan through their current regime leaders to massacre Equatorians at a random space but this activities has no difference from committing suicide

    Those killing innocent civilians on Highway, are not yet identified. So stop lebelling people in those areas as they are the one doing this. The government had even said they are still investigating those incident on the high ways.so stop this propaganda that the equatorians are the one killing innocent civilians. Security of the country is solely the responsibility of the government and it’s for

    To all,
    There is no need to point fingers on one tribe, every tribe in South Sudan reserve the full right to living, the security of the civilian is in the hand of the government of SS When Equotoria or Nuer is Killed, the goverment should show concern just as when dinka is killed
    Let us all embrace peace in our country, we voted as one tribe during referandum, why can’t we continue with the unity

      Peace Lover,

      I acknowledge your statement with enthusiasm. However if the government of South Sudan just did that to Nuer in 2013 and now to Equatorians in Wonduruba, Mundri, Lui, Baggari, Bazia, Raja, Lanya, Yei, Bassalia, Nimule etc then what can you say? A national conference to create South Sudan that belongs to all is a must.

      These are statements of losers, people without a social bearing, vagrants and vagabonds. Delusional idiots who wander aimlessly without any attachments their homeland. After Equatoria had developed, here came rascals who dearly want to parasite on others. Jienge go home and leave Equatoria to develop. You have a home?
