Kenyans condemn killing of 4 aid workers in S. Sudan


April 2, 2017 (NAIROBI) - A large section of Kenyans on Sunday condemned the killing of four aid workers who were killed in an ambush as they travelled in South Sudan’s Pibor town last week.

Four Kenyan national, were among the six aid worker killed by unknown gunmen. They all worked for Grassroots Empowerment and Development Organisation (CREDO), an indigenous non-governmental organisation.

Several concerned citizens, in various social media reactions, accused the South Sudanese government of failing to protect the aid workers as they travelled in a remote part of the war-torn nation.

It is alleged the four were killed by rebels in the region controlled by the rebels associated with the former vice president, Riek Machar.

The rebels, however, dismissed the allegations and blamed forces loyal to President Salva Kiir government for the aid workers’ killings.

Last week, the head of the United Nations mission in the country, David Shearer condemned the killing of the aid workers and called upon South Sudanese authorities to properly investigate the incident.

Meanwhile, the bodies of the four Kenyans who died in the war-ravaged nation were Saturday morning flown into the country and received by their families at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

    Riak and the IO have shown remarkable discipline in the areas they control. The release of Isaiah Chol (Boss of SS Statistics Bureau), Tanzanian pilot, Pakistani and Indian engineers recently released. How could Juba retrieve the bodies of the Kenyans from IO territory without prior permission? These aid workers were killed by kiirminals in govt controlled areas and want to blame IO. Nonsense.

      If indeed the aid workers where killed in IO controlled areas, it shows that Kiir has no more control over most of SS and the IO is closing in on Juba. The govt claims that SS is peaceful and investors can come is just blatant jienge lies. Kiir is a kiirminal and Kenya must hold and his undisciplined luakjiengs or nyornyors responsible.

    They (Kenyans) deserved the death. Kenya is peaceful but they chose to die for dollars. I don’t regret. I wish more Kenyans and Ugandans will continue be received in coffins in their country. If our citizens are dying due to war in which your countries have hands, why not you also feel the music. Safe journey. Leave us alone and we can use our knowledge.
