Armed Nuer youth announce force of 30,000 to encircle Murle


February 7, 2012 (JUBA) - Following six weeks of raids and counter raids in Jonglei state, armed men from the Nuer ethnic group announced Saturday that they are forming a combined force with the Dinka tribe and members of the Nuer from Ethiopia to form a border force to "quarantine" the Murle.

The 30,000 strong group of armed civilians, calling itself the White Army, will encircle Murle areas to prevent cattle raids, a statement released from the group said.

In late December and early January between 6,000 and 8,000 armed men from the Luo Nuer tribe attacked Pibor County, where the Murle live, raiding cattle, setting fire to homes and killing scores of civilians.

Around 140,000 people were affected by the raid and the counter raids carried out by Murle youth on Nuer and Dinka areas of Jonglei.

The United Nations and South Sudanese military were overwhelmed by the attack belatedly deploying more troops to the area, which has now been declared a disaster zone.

At the time statements from the White Army said it would not leave Murle land until all of the group had been disarmed and women and children abducted in previous raids had been returned.

Having attracted criticism for previous statements that threatened to wipe out the Murle, the latest statement said that this operation, "will not target Murle’s women, children and the elderly. The White Army that shall take part will only be at the border to prevent cattle rustling and look for armed Murle youth who may be hiding in the bushes."

The statement accused Murle groups of attacking a sacred town Wec Deang, where the Nuer prophet Ngundeng is buried. The White Army also claimed that Murle members of South Sudanese military (SPLA) had defected from their base in Upper Nile State in order to attack Dinka and Nuer civilians.

By 1 March 20,000 South Sudanese Nuer and 10,000 Dinka and to Ethiopian Nuer, who also blame the Murle for cattle raids and abductions will have surrounded Pibor County where the minority group live, according to the release.

The White Army appealed for the SPLA to give them weapons to help them with ’Operation Savannah Storm’. However, the SPLA has said it plans to disarm the civilian population to stop fighting in the volatile state.

South Sudan is awash with small arms as a hangover from the two-decade civil war with North Sudan that resulted in the country’s independence in July last year. The Jonglei violence has raised questions other how well South Sudan will be able to function considering its endemic poverty, corruption and competition for resources such as cattle along tribal lines.


The meeting to decide on the new course of action took place in Uror County, the White Army’s statement says, which was attacked by the Murle in August killing over 600 people according to the UN.

The August attack was in return for a June offensive by the Luo Nuer in which hundreds were also killed.

There are no clear figures of casualties since the violence peaked again over Christmas and New Year. The Pibor Commissioner says over 3,000 were killed but this has been dismissed by the UN.

The head of the UN in South Sudan is appearing on BBC World’s Hard Talk interview programme today, with Jonglei expected to be one of main topics. Many have accused the UN of not reacting fast enough and failing to fulfill its mandate to protect the civilian population in the conflict.

The UN says that its mission in South Sudan is to support the government and army not to act in place of it. Russia’s refusal to allow its air assets to be used in the response the Jonglei crisis and lack helicopters more generally has hindered the ability for humanitarian agencies to reach remote areas of Jonglei, which has few functioning roads.

      Read the article again, it said that the combination of 20,000 nuers and 10,000 Dinka will go to encircled Murle area. that encircle wouldnt work to disarmed Murle or to stop Murle revenge. wow Murle are very few but they dont ask their brothers Toposa for help unlike nuers asking the National Army to gives them arms. what shameful tribe.

Politicians from the big tribes dominating the government will " wipe out" small tribes one by one since there is no law! If I am Murle I will get arms from the devil since my incompetent government is uncapable to protect me.

So, Nuer and Dinka tribes are the connection between SS and Sudan!

Most of the so-called South Sudanese rebels which are traitorous militias, according to own way of defining them, got financial supports by robbing innocent civilians of their wealths and by acquiring logistics from Khartoum. They have no other financial sources than robbing------

Southern militia leaders trained them and send them to their respective tribes in order to wage their cowardic war against innocent people like children, women and the elderly. Our leaders need to be smart, no cattle rustlers, but they are militias

You Murle or jeva never fought with all Nuer clans before, you have been fighting with only one Nuer clan, namely Lou Nuer because your number matches theirs! Now, all Nuer clans have to consider joining your war with Lou Nuer to put an end to your headache in RoSS as you prove to be the biggest threat to the survival of our Lou Nuer clan!

Nuers are they one getting most from Khartoum, why Peter Gatdet, Paulino Matip, Gatluak Gai and so many nuers that were affiliators of NCP. sure Murle got their from Khartoum because Riak gave it to them when he was siding with North. prove me wrong if it wasnt riak gives most of the arm to them.

      Mary Boyoi is the one who brought Lou Nuer into this decision. I have been studying her through FB since the last visit by the Lou N youth to Pibor. she is only interested in posting bad news about Nuer and Dinka. If she is really a peace promoter she supposed to report daily attacks committed by her own Murle tribe men against the Lou Nuer and Dinka Bor.

    "The White Army that shall take part will only be at the border to prevent cattle rustling and look for armed Murle youth who may be hiding in the bushes."

    That will be interesting. I like the part that the White Army will go after young Murles hiding in the forests and bushes of Jonglei State. It will be good successes because most of these Murle young criminals scattered in the bushes and ---

    Forests of Jonglei will never be disarmed by just disarment mission of the government. They just leave our innocent civilians suffer and are enjoying their robbed riches in the bushes and forests. If the White Army men are true to their words of going after only after criminals, then they will bring peace to Jonglei for sure.

    Dear readers,
    Murle continue conducting the raids against Nuer and Dinka areas, therefore Nuer and Dinka now preparing to attack Murle again. What do you think of govt can do to stop the ongoing tribal conflict between Jonglei state tribes?
    Now there are combine 2 brigades from SS police and the SPLA forces, but are not able control the sitaution due to open large terrain of Jonlei.

      In Murle is the problem in Jonglei. No other tribe practice selling of human beings which is an international crime.

      Murle criminals must be defeated.

    The vast area appropriated by the Nuer during the nineteenth century was formerly occupied by a Dinka, Anyuak and Burun population. The fate of this population is one of the most interesting questions pertaining to Nuer expansion. How many Dinka, Anyuak, Burun… were killed by the Nuer? How many died of starvation? How many migrated to other areas? And how many were assimilated into Nuer community?

    In 1912, the Eastern Jikany Nuer and Lou Nuer undertook their own reprisal against the Anyuak. The Nuer Warrios invasion/raid was directed against the Anyuak villages on the North bank of the Baro/Sobat River from the Ethiopian border to Itang/Achua, a distance about fifty miles. Later reports indicated “All the villages in this formerly prosperous neighborhood have been devastated.

    The Mighty Nuer Warriors which compose of 20,000 from Gawaar, E. Jikany of South Sudan and Lou Nuer, 5,000 from E. Jikany Nuer of Ethiopia and other 5,000 from coward Jaang/Slaves will conduct what they call OSS on March 1st, 2012. The very tiny coward Murle must be ready for the worst.

    Had the Nuer ever wished to occupy the whole greater Upper Nile, from Renk to Mading Bor and from Ruweng/Abiemnom to Buma-Gambella, it seems unlikely that the other coward Jurs (Jaang, Teet, Bar, Chai…) could have stopped them.

    The Anyuak have voiced so much against the Nuer for obvious reasons. The main reason being that the Nuer are hungry for Anyuak land and are not satisfied with what they took already through the long history. The Nuer call the Anyuak resistance hatred.

    No wonder what this 5,000 from coward Jaang/Slaves will do in this operation (OSS) rather than cooking food for Nuer Warriors. The Mighty Nuer White Army(Warriors) congratulated Twic-Dinka for joining the Operation Typhoon to disarm Murle. We thank 900 Dinka who joined us on December 22nd, 2011. We are very happy that no member of Dinka White Army was wounded or killed in operation

      Kim Deng:

      Your hatred of the Dinka will get you nowhere! The enemy knows who faced them in the battlefields, and so your aspersions mean nothing. The Dinka should not have involved themselves in that previous operation and should certainly not involve themselves in the impending attempt at ethnic-cleansing on the Murle.

    This is a stupid move and whoever is planning it is an idiot. Why play into the hands of the Khartoum turban-headed doom tellers who predict and support tribal fighting in S. Sudan? If the Nuer White army leaders and the Dinka youth leaders who want to join them are patriotic citizens of S. Sudan, then they should look at the bigger picture: a more stable and peaceful S. Sudan......

      ...Therefore, you should look at other alternatives instead of surround Murle area. For the short term, consider helping the local police with patrols around the villages and request the government or other peace-loving S. Sudanese in the Diaspora to help you with communication equipment such as radios. For long-term, those who want to see a secure S.Sudan should join the army or the police.

        Consider the example of those civilians in Western Equatoria who are using bows and arrows to patrol around their village and confront LRA. White Army should conduct similar patrol and give support to local police if they don’t want to join the Army or the Police forces.
