Boma state urges Jonglei state authorities to call back youth

Jonglei state had entered into Boma state since Friday, claiming to peruse their stolen heads of cattles and children some months back. This is the second time youth from Jonglei have entered Boma state.

Boma state information minister, Achan John said the state governor requested his Jonglei state counterpart to call back the youth, amid assurance they will recover the cattle.

“We have collected 35 heads of cattle, and we want to return them to Jonglei state. We are working hard to return the cattle, but they did not give us the chance. The civilians keeping cattle are not around, they are in far areas like Kongkong and Jom because of the dry season”, he said.

Peter Labelel, one of the Boma state officials told Sudan Tribune that Jonglei youth attacked the area, killed people and burnt houses.

“The youth of Jonglei had taken law into their hands, they had gone back again to Boma state to collect their stolen heads of cattle on their own. They had not respected Boma state authorities who were trying to collect and return their cattle," Labele said Monday.

They had been interrupting the collection of these cattle, so what is remaining is unless they get them back by own, as they done it already. Today, they are in Manybol, killing people and burning houses”, he added.

        8 months ago when Jonglei Authorities asked Buma authorities to return the stolen children and cattle; and their response was that; come and get it yourselves!

        Now the Jonglei youths are actually going there to take the cattle by themselves; why is Buma authorities having problems with that? Isn’t it their wishes in the first place?

    Why it took Boma state authority to collect just 35 head of cattle over duration of 5 months? Jonglei people are seldom to react but when it react they mean really business. What annoyed jonglei state yout is the attacked which killed 26 people and stolen of more 1,000 cattle and 15 children.

      Personally, I blame President Kiir for letting people get wild. During civil war, murle never kidnapped children from Nor or areas because Garang would send force to punish perpetrators and recover the kids, but P. Kiir is not tough or punishing people. This is what causes everyone to go wild. Therefore, Bor youths have right to protect the community and bring back the cattles and children that ha

    I am asking my countrymen in Jonglei to follow no other gospel than the gospel of self-sacrifice which precedes every battle. Whether you belong to the school of violence or non-violence, you will still have to go through the fire of sacrifice and of discipline.Please kindly refrain from war because both parties will lose at the end of the day...

    Murle like to run their mouths too much. we will follow them all the way to Raad if they refuse to fight. kidnapping and cattle rustling must end through use of force.

        One of the authorities in Boma State talked about 35 cows and not mentioning children abducted during the raiding in Jalle plus other places in Bor yet the Youth whom they said they took law into their hands claimed 1000s of cattle taken. Please the number is annoying you better keep quiet because is no convincing to those who took guns.Also the nature of South Sudan today is life protecting.
