S. Sudan rebels claim capture of Kajo-keji county headquarter

The incident, a rebel spokesperson said in a statement, occurred in Kuku villages in and around Kajo-Keji and on the Juba-Kajo-Keji road.

“The purpose of the attacks was to loot, destroy and erase these villages,” Col. William Gatjiath Deng.

The rebel official claimed their forces killed 14 government soldiers, captured 27 newly acquired AKM-47 and 5 PKM in good condition.

However, the rebel’s deputy military spokesman, Lam Paul Gabriel said their position along the Juba-Kajo-keji road came under attack by government forces on Monday morning, but they were repulsed.

“The headquarters is under our controlled. After they attacked us, we repulsed the attack, and during the fighting we reached the county headquarters,” Lam said in a separate statement.

He claimed four soldiers were killed and nine others captured during the clashes, adding that they also released 12 civilians who were detained by government soldiers at the county headquarters.

Sudan Tribune could not independently verify the rebels’ claims on the attack.

    Where’s cease-fire Mr. President Salva Kiir? You’re really working hard to bring peace to this country, but the country is full of animals who don’t abide by anything else except violent, rape,loot,killing, you name it. Anybody out there in the bush of what the bandits want? Why are they terrorizing the civil populations?

      Your so delusional and still believe in S. Kiir?? Kiir never stick to his words and that why no one respect him as a president.... He (Kiir) had a changed of mind, and he order his SPLM/A faction to provoke SPLM_IO and that’s what led to the Kajo-Keji town to be captured by freedom fighters.... Direct your blames to S. K for lying to you and no one else..

        Malakal county Simon,
        I don’t think you read the article right chicken headed boy! The report says, rebels captured Kajo-Keji, are you with me? Kiir just declared cease-fire with you rebels in less than 24 hrs, in stead to waits and let Kiir fulfil his lies as you thugs always says, in stead you just attacked a town and the same time you tried to blamed on the government. Are you guys not idiots?

          Con_ You were just chanting and chuting for RPF to come and protect you just three hours ago, and you idiots trying to show off? Wait, we will response soon, just attacking civilians villages doesn’t meant anything rather then rapping, civilians’ and looting their properties. The rebels acts exactly constitute war crime against humanity in the country side.

          Kush Natives;

          you have not understood the article yourself! the capture of Kajo Keji was after an attack on the rebel’s position and thus fell after pursuit of the provokers.

          accept facts and avoid perpetual denials, such will not handover to you what you envisage on a silver plate. violation of a declared ceasefire by the president means the army themselves do not respect the CIC.

    Job well done my comrades, all MTN’s in Equatoria are now considered hostile forces, and from now onwards, they’re dead people walking. We’ll rape their women, torch their luaaks and scatter their cows.

    The sons and daughters of Equatoria will raise up soon under the leadership of Gen. Thomas Cirillo. The true revolution has just begun...ya ariyan Jienge itum.

      What such a illiterate animal! This is showing that the war that you’re waging is a hatred war that’s already mounted into war crimes against humanity. That’s exactly what Riek Machar used to say in Nassir 1991. That rapping an innocents women by his army is none of his business. You idiots are voting for president Kiir to stay in power for another decades if you idiots don’t revisit your I

        It’s good when your Jienge kinfolk kill and rape others, but its painful when the same treatment is reversed....huh? Stop being a hypocrite, because, who doesn’t know of your Jienge torch and scorch policy towards other communities.

        Your people raped Grandmothers, women, little girls, boys and even men, what kind of evil is that? Don’t think all this will be forgotten.

        What hotness of war are you talking about, because, if it had not been for M7, SPLM/N, hired thugs and the fortune seeking mercenaries that your coward Jienge brought in to fight on their side, there wouldn’t be any war right now, because, all you MTN animals would’ve been dispersed and crushed like roaches.
