March 4, 2017 (BOR) - Thousands of civilians displaced from Lou Nuer areas of Bieh state arrived in Panyang county of Duk in Jonglei state, where lack of food and water have been identified as major challenges.

The commissioner of Panyang county, Peter Latjor said 5,625 individuals had already arrived in his county, with some more families still arriving, citing lack of basic needs, food water and medicines as the major problems facing both local and displaced communities.

“5,625 people arrived from Uror when I was there, and some people were still arriving when I left the area. These include the families that came from Juba Protection of Civilians [POCs], but could not reach home when the SPLA entered Uror. There is hunger, no food, no water, no medicines. These are the main problems in my county”, he told Sudan Tribune.

There have been reports that relative calm had returned in Uror, although there are still fears of possible attacks from the two warring parties on the other, which could also result in to civilian casualties.

Latjor urged aid agencies to move in and support the affected people.

“This hunger is on a large scale and urgent support from humanitarian actors is needed to reduce it. That is why I came to Bor to talk to non-governmental organizations if there can help. Among the civilians are women, children and elderly people”, he added.

Latjor said relative peace between the Dinka communities in Duk county and the Lou Nuer made it easier for the displaced persons to be hosted by local communities.

U.N agencies estimate that about 5.5 million people will have no reliable source of food by July.

      Help these South Sudanese displaced people with food and water please. Riek is a big devil, he caused this situation to his own community. Peace is on the way.

        That is why you villagers who claim to have known something about politic don’t even know where the fact lies but, only blame every now and then without seeing the mess cause by this ineffective and tribal leader who kills millions people in the country. instead of telling the truth that can bring people together, you start supporting base on tribalism not the truth about someone. I hate that!!!!

          Rebels need to know that peace means giving up something in order to achieve peace, that’s the truth we are waiting for to hear from rebels. Calling elected president names like tribalism will not help you to get peace you want. Prepare yourself for long war, not in internet.
