“We have just got information that one local artist called Gerham was found dead on the road to Tiindoka and we don’t know who killed him,” said a local security official.

The source who preferred anonymity added that Jerham Gersama was found dead after torture and gunshot wound on his chest.

According to the state security official two girls, one believed to be his girlfriend were under arrest for investigation.

No one has claimed the responsibility for the killing, but police have launched investigations into the matter.

The victim studied in Uganda and came back to live in Yambio where he performs music.

Also, he was a member of the former rebel South Sudan National Liberation Movement SSNLM tasked with the protection of the group commander.

The group signed a peace agreement with the government in April 2016.

    I’m getting more frustrated by the day with Sudan Tribune and what they have been passing as journalism. It seems the editorin chief is MIA or just too lazy to check.Orthographic errors can be measured by the tonnes; the photos attached to articles are either out-dated or irrelevant. But today’s picture is actually upside down. Its a pity because some of us have been loyal to this site from 2001!!
