January 31, 2012 (BENTIU) - Group of criminal gangs suspected to have come have stolen over 300 head of cattle and abducted two children in “Dhorkiere” from west Pachar payam of Payinjiar County of Unity State.

Unity State officials allege that the cattle raiders came from Amongpiny and Malek Payams of Rumbek Central County of Lakes State.

According to Peter Gai Joak, the area commissioner, said that the South Sudan army (SPLA) and police recovered the stolen cows and the two abducted children on Monday 30 January.

One of the cattle owners was shot dead in the raid, the official said, with two others seriously wounded.

Payinjiar County held a disarmament campaign last year but now they say this has left them vulnerable to attacks.

The county was affected by a flood last year. Many families depend on their cows to survive and they extremely valuable for status and bridal wealth. .

The Payinjiar County commissioner strongly condemned the brutal attack by the group of armed cattle rustlers.

“It is unfortunate that some people are still continuing with these brutal activities and frustrate government efforts of bringing peace into the region”, said Joak.

Joak told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday that now security is back to normal following the return of the stolen cattle. The attack was one of the first such attacks in Unity State since South Sudan’s independence in July 2011.

Last year the Payinjiar County commissioner together with local chiefs and SPLA forces collected more than 300 guns from civilians. Joak has made wide campaign in the disarmament exercise by convincing the local population to handover their weapons freely without the use of force, saying that he would guarantee their security.

Joak promised the civilian population in his county that security was his priority.

    Why SPLA recover stolen cattle from Unity state, while SPLA in Jonglei can not do the same? It seems that SPLA in Jonglei are doing nothing.

      The SPLA don’t recover stolen cows and abducted children simply because those armed robber thugs are the same SPLA, that is why they help each other steal and loot with impunity. In fact, those SPLA generals from Nuer and Dinka share the lion’s shares of all those cattle stolen from Murleland

      Cattle must not be killed. They are our wealth and wealth is blessing. But the government can do the same thing which was done before in Holland. In Holland the government collected all the cattle and kept them in a scientific way. The people benefit from it all. But our corrupt joNkoz will steal all the wealth like the oil money

    Dear all,
    I have been telling you that this evil of cattle rustling, child abduction and murder or genocide are all evil and I strongly condemn it even if it means taking my own Murle criminal individuals guilty of child abduction to court, I will do it. These evils are not only done by one particular tribe and it is always wrong whether the culprits are from, Jonglei, Lakes or even America. But

          I know jonkoz are now on their way again to complete their genocide against Murle people and to loot cows. But when they get finished in Murleland by Murle Warriors which I am going to command very soon, don’t ever cry. My mission is going to be mainly defending Pibor Town. But another objective is to completely detroy any aggression force that make the mistake of being found in Murleland
