January 1, 2012 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s President, Salva Kiir Mayardit, has ordered the deployment of more soldiers and 2,000 police to Pibor county in Jonglei state in a belated attempt to stop tribal fighting in the area.

Over the last week the 6,000 members of the Lou-Nuer ethnic group moved into Murle territory setting fire to towns and raiding cattle, as an act of revenge for an attack in August.

Having captured the strategic town of district of Linkwangole, the Luo-Nuer advanced on Pibor the county headquarters on New Year’s Eve. At least 20,000 people have been displaced by the attacks, according to the UN.

The group’s declared aim is to capture all Murle towns and villages, disarm the population and recover over 180 Luo-Nuer children they claim were abducted by the Murle in August.

Over 1,000 people have been killed in cattle raiding and fighting between the two tribes this year, including around 700 by the Murle’s August raid. The Murle say hundreds were killed when they were attacked in June.

On Saturday the Luo-Nuer group overran the Pibor town in defiance of the efforts by the Vice President, Riek Machar, and other leading politicians from who tried to convince them to withdraw to their territory.

There are reports that the Luo-Nuer have pulled out of Pibor but are moving south, further into Murle territory, where thousands of civilians have already been displaced to by the conflict.

On Sunday, the Lou-Nuer youth were reported to have stationed a sizable group in a village called Lokurnyang, about two kilometers east of the Pibor town.

There are unconfirmed reports of clashes in an area called Longachot, a few kilometers south of Pibor town, where thousands of civilians had fled on Saturday.

Local sources have told Sudan Tribune that the Lou-Nuer youth had divided themselves into three main groups moving southwards to the areas of Gumruk, Partet and Lokila.

CURFEW IN JUBA & STATE OF EMERGENCY IN JONGLEI

On Saturday the Vice President, Riek Machar, briefed President Kiir on the escalating situation in Jonglei, prompting the deployment of additional SPLA forces to the area.

After Kiir returned from his home village of Akon, Warrap State, where he went for Christmas holiday break, a nighttime curfew was declared in Juba.

Heavily armed police and army personal were stationed across the capital on Saturday and Sunday, especially along roads with government buildings.

The unannounced curfew runs from 8pm until 6am.

Machar said Sunday he suspected that some people in South Sudan’s capital Juba and Jonglei’s main town, Bor, might be encouraging the Lou-Nuer to continue the fighting and ignore his efforts to stop the fighting.

He appealed to those who may be communicating with the group to instead convince them to stop the violence and return to their territory in order to avoid confrontation with the soon-to-be-deployed police and SPLA forces.

President Salva Kiir on Sunday also announced that a ’State of Emergency’ will soon be declared in Jonglei state in order to effectively curb the ongoing insecurity situation. He confirmed that he has ordered "large forces" from both the SPLA and the Police and are already on the move into Pibor county to stop the fighting.

Lise Grand, the UN Resident Coordinator in South Sudan today told the BBC that the Lou-Nuer youth have withdrawn from Pibor town and were moving southeast wards chasing the Murle civilians who evacuated the town earlier on Saturday. She said there were some civilian casualties from the Saturday attack inside the town.

Other sources say the Lou-Nuer youth lost interest in Pibor town and decided to abandon it because they did not find civilians they were looking for in the town.

    The Lou and Jikany Nuer withdraw from Pibor because they have tasted the fire when they attempt to enter the city. Now, they have been told not to go to Pibor because the spla will confront with them. Now, there people coordinating this attack,that is wrong to against the small tribe like Murle.
    The SPLA must lay and ambush to those who pursue civilians.
    SPLM/A must contain this incident.

      The withdrawal does not have anything to do with tasting fire from any source. I’m sure if you read the article right you should noticed that they left the town because Murle were not there. Their intention is to kill as many Murle as they could get and to bring back their children whom Murle stole last year. SPLA need to watch out because they did not do anything when Lou were butcher last year.

        George Bol,

        You are like a woman ululating when seeing husbands dancing aggressively. Are your comments aimed at stopping the fighting or fueling it? Yes, Lou-Nuer’s fighting skill cannot match the hit and run style of Murle warefare and therefore the Lou-Nuer should stop otherwise the Murle will die in thousands as they are being chased without resistance...The Lou-Nuer voluntarily withdrew...

          Facts!!!

          Jonglei problem started like this 50 years ago: Bor sold their children born out of wedlock to barren Murle who could not produce because of outbreak of syphilis disease as they share their married women. Then it went to abduction of children by cattleless Murle who could not afford to buy children, then to cattle raiding from Nuer and Dinka by Murle. Now revenge attacks....

            Bor realise that it is the same children they sold to murle that are send back to kill and kidnap children.

        If the SPLM do not return the stolen cattle from Lou and Jikany Nuer,then the South Sudan have a problem. the attackers will regret for the gangs activities against Murle. The Murle used this kind of tactics in a conflict. They run and later come after you get exhausted. See you!

          Dear all,
          This time around the conference should be called and to tell Murle people directly that what they always do is bad because there is no reason they always abduct children, cattle and women of different communities- being Dinka Bor, Nuer and so on. Now, the result is so painful and these particular communities will put South Sudan in to turmoil. Jonglei must refrain from criminal acts.

          If you are one of their male wives you should tell them to stop theft, abduction of children and killing of Lou-Nuer. Remember, Lou-Nuer is just one of the ten major sections of the Greater Nuer tribe. They are fighting a losing war in the end...

If your are supporting killing than you don’t know the meaning of your life how important its. We should cry and morning the Murle because if we lost one tribe than we lack them.

      Your name is Jing and you are represent your own evil. wipping out murle is a getting rid of war and start for development in the country.
      Dinka Bor including coward Bol Deng must involve wipping out murle on earth for the peace to be.

      Kuol Manyang Juuk must go to hell. Riek Machar is the commander of those Milirias. Kuol is fail and riek is supporting fighting. death to them.

        Dinka Dominated SPLM/A,

        Wiping out Murle is not a solution for peace. You need to know that it’s a crime against humanity. Why are you dancing for the work done by Nuer gangs instead of you to attack Murle. My friend, you are wasting your time with that little education that you doing because it’s worthless if you don’t see the other side of coins/the end results. Murle is atribe in the south. ge

          Do you think there is no educated people in murle while they fail to know that kidnopping of childeren is a crime or what? you must be a coward just like Mi dit said it.

            Do you know that Dinka is no longer Dominating SPLA but GOSS offices? I think your name is uninformed otherwise you must have known that it is Nuer that now Dominate SPLA. Thus you should adjust your name to "Nuer Dominated SPLA/M". Hope you are not floating!!!

      George!
      I understand your point brother!you know Lou-Nuer,Bor-Dinka and even Anyuak people had put up with Murle people for so long,the most frustrating and annoying point about Murle is how they keep repeating abducting children over and over and the spla are not stopping them,who doesn’t love kids,i think we all do and that’s why you see the Nuer youth declaring the war against those gangsters.

      Thank you Mr. Ruach Jing,

      But let me remind you, do not think that Nuer have the power to wipe away Bravo tiny Murle tribe, never will that happen, It is not the number that matters but its the power, no matter how tiny they are, Its like when you a million flies coming to attach you, single Piff Paff spray will help wipe them immediately without taking a minute.

      If the Authority failed to stop this attempted crime, let them re-arm the Murle youth now, its not good to disarm one tribe inorder for the other to come and destroy them in their very eyes, better re-arm the Murle youth now let them defend themselves and wait and watch the scenario, let the circle continues until the defeated one to surrender and lie down their arms, then peace to prevail

        What nonsenses man! Murle tribe is too tiny and weak to fight the Mighty Nuer tribe! Now we are allowing only Lou Nuer to deal with them but later on if SPLA takes murle side then all other Nuer clans will join the battle and then the end of Murle as a tribe in Southern Sudan! I don’t encourage victimization of Murle tribe but only when SPLA handle it with care otherwise!

    those who think that Murle should be punished for their atrocities against the Lou Nuer undermine the role of the government as the only legal organ to question injustices done against others. Everyone should not stand as a judge for his/her own cause, the thing that he/she may do himself against others.

    During the closing phase of Nuer expansion, the Gaawar and Lou Nuer pushed the Ric, Ghol, and Nyarraweng Dinka south as far as Faijing in present-day Twij County. The Nuer progressively gained the upper hand in these conflicts, and in 1906 launched a large-scale raid on the Faijing settlement that forced the Dinka to withdraw about sixteen miles further south to Kongor. Then in 1908 the Gaawar Nue

Sometimes you may those tribes of Jonglei as The Greater Upper Nile Dinka (Hol Dinka, Nywarweng Dinka, Twic Dinka, Bor Dinka, etc). Right now the Dinka tribe is being classified into two branches based on region such as The Greater Bahr el Ghazal Dinka & The Greater Upper Nile Dinka.

    In 1908-10, the British sought to end the Nuer occupation toward Dinkaland and established control over the area. A new border between the Nuer and Dinka was established at the favor of Dinka at Duk Padiet, fifty miles north of Kongor, and the Ghol, Ric, and Nyarraweng were awarded about four thousand aquare miles of territory they had previously lost during Nuer expansion.

    Although a substantial portion of this grant represented an uninhabited no-man’s-land between the Nuer and the Dinka, the Nuer were also required to relinquish territory under active occupation. The Nuer undoubtedly viewed the transfer as a government-sponsored Dinka invasion.

    The Murle community doesn’t deserve to have cattle at the first place if not because of Nuer mercy. The Nuer Warriors fight like mad dogs when they declare "Kac-lora/Mut." It’s not right or losing lives that matter when waging a war, but victory. Don’t disturb the sleeping Lion, otherwise your life will be in danger.
