South Sudanese army pledge to clear Jonglei of rebels


August 28, 2012 (BOR) - Jonglei State Government officials and South Sudan’s Army (SPLA) have pledged to clear the state from the rebel group led by David Yau Yau after an attack in Nahaam area of Pibor, where they killed some 40 SPLA soldiers last week.

Jonglei State Governor, Kuol Manyang Juuk, minister of youth and sport in Jonglei, Baba Medan, and commander of Division 8 in Jonglei, Major General Botros Bol Bol were among others who visited Nahaam on Monday.

“There is no nation with two armies, we have instructed the army to teach a lesson they will never forget,” the Governor said.

The death of the SPLA soldiers who were defending the nation cannot be mourned according to Manyang. "They are martyrs of this land," he stressed.

The Governor of South Sudan largest state further confirmed after his return to Bor that “civilian in villages around were affected” by the attack.

General Bol said that David Yau Yau, in a bid to recruit civilians in Pibor, lied to people telling them that he brought a lot of arms.

In the past years, populations that have been disarmed areas in South Sudan have expressed fears that they were made vulnerable to attack by other tribes, particularly neighbouring groups who may have been overlooked in the disarmament operation.

Earlier this year the South Sudanese Army conducted a state-wide disarmament campaign in Jonglei State following clashes between the Murle and Luo Nuer tribes which affected over 100,000 people.

General Bol reaffirmed that the disarmament process would continue as planned adding that “Yau Yau will die like [George] Athor” who died in December 2011. The SPLA say he was killed in Central Equatoria State while trying to recruit civilians into his South Sudan Democratic Movement/Army (SSDM/A).

The SSDM, however, disputed the SPLA’s version of events claiming that he had been kidnapped on a visit to Uganda. Athor like Yau Yau began his rebellion after the 2010 elections. Athor lost his bid to become Governor while Yauyau failed to be appointed as Pibor Commissioner.

“Yau Yau will be the last militia leader to die in shame, they will not escaped from our hands”, General Bol said.

    The so called Toilet or Beer Community is the only one still rayal to Jalaba while the rest distance themselves from Khartoum. Name and identity is matter to all, this is the right time for you guys to convenience your people on those issues. No more Jalaba on our faces but sooner rather then later Southerners will points on each other for what you have done to this nation. country first!

      Reporter in Bor does not know the name of the Commander of SPLA Division 8, Gen. Peter Bol Kong. He called him Boutros Bol Bol. Let the SPLA teach the rebels a lesson so that they stop such sensiless rebellion sponsored by Khartoum.

        Hi Mi madit
        It is true that Peter Bol Kong was the former Division 8 Commander but at the current time. Major general Batros Bol Bol is the one commanding the division.
        It is just a point of clarification

        The rebels had no idea that, they are sent to South Sudan by Khartoum using only one way ticket to hell! In other words, they are sent directly into the fire! When SPLA goes after them the way they will do; Khartoum is not going to come with helicopters to rescue them! That means they are just going to be crashed helplessly!

      Thank you Mr Kuol Manyang for your strong encouragement.
      We fought Jalaba for many years but never defeated us.
      I think Yau Yau will get death rewards very soon.
      The land of South Sudan will never forget us and we will never forget it.

    It was good plot of governor Kuol who gave army to Murlei last yr go n protect ur catle he said. Kuol was one among the source of army to Murlei,but his objective was that go n kill Nuer. Isay that bcoz it was reported last week by the Pibor com. that YauYau was recruiting youth of Murlei n with him were 35 soldiers but Kuol didn’t take action. action after death?
