Jonglei youth threaten to attack Boma after withdrawal


March 12, 2017 (JUBA) – The youth from South Sudan’s Jonglei state have threatened to carry out an attack on the neighbouring Boma state, claiming that their objective is to locate, find and trace all the raided cattle and abducted children from December 2016, should the agreement signed between the two communities be dishonoured.

“The youth will return to Boma anytime to locate, find and trace all raided cattle and children if the December 2016 agreement is not honoured,” party’s reads the youth’s statement extended to Sudan Tribune.

The statement attributed the cause of the youth’s withdrawal from Boma after the attack in the area to the recent national prayer day called by President Salva Kiir and the visit of the special representative of the secretary general of the United Nations to Bor.

Withdrawal of the youth, the statement further observed, was done in preparation for the peace negotiations in the national dialogue for peace and reconciliation.

The 11 March statement was signed by Majok Kalei, the community’s representative, the paramount chief of Twic East county, Alier Aluong, the paramount chief of Bor and the acting paramount chief, Deng Mabur.

    Meaningless! What was the meaning of the national prayer, that just took place for the sake of reconciliation and forgiveness? Second to that, when did Jonglei youth realized that they have got a capacity to threaten Boma state youth or are they expecting SPLA the national army to be used on their behalf? First and foremost, if these two sisters communities failed to get along for whatever-

      I told you guys, it would have been a great surprise if Bor Youths could overrun Murle land, at-least Nyarweng and Cuor/Padiet community could do that.

    con, reason the case might be. They should together concentrate on a peaceful dialogue rather then viewing use of force a solution to their problem. If these both two communities put aside the culture of an ignorant. The peaceful coexistent is very far them. Truth must be tell!

      Take your stand, in stead of mocking me! You want to tell me the kidnapping of the priest in Juba by national security forces? How many security forces do we have in Juba? There’s IO and IG security forces here. So, since most of IO forces are against the peaceful dialogue, they could create anything they want in order to spoil our successful and God given dialogue in the nation.

    The dinka Bor youth were cornered and humiliated by this small tribe and now they want to talk nonsense as usual, because they only good at blahblah and not in front. They are the very youth who killed the unarmed civilians in UNMiSs camp in Bor and the same youth that cross to Awerial on hearing the advance of Nyaborjiok. Who are these cowards try to fool anyway.

    Mmmmm!! try your Luck Bor/Jonglei boys. What I know is that my Dinka community can never defeat any tribe in south Sudan in a fare fight, leave alone the gallant Murley. What they do best is that they hide behind the government then they act like government executing their tribe’s evil. Such behavior means imbalance of power. Look at them in a foreign land they hide their long tail!

    Unless a cock crows, it can’t be located in darkness, Bor Youth in fact has been so coward as you put it and their commanders have been shining in various fronts, unless the elders might have changed the original Bor where Koryom majorly originated, but if not then let’s watch the game silently.
