Jonglei: Over 360 cattle raided from Bor County


September 24, 2012 (BOR) - Pamuom cattle camp in Alian village of Jale Payam in Jonglei State’s Bor County was raided on Sunday by unknown gunmen, suspected to be from Murle ethnic tribe, according the the local MP for the area, Kuol Bol Ayom.

Bol accused the youth of Murle ethnic tribes to have stolen 364 cattle from his village cattle camp at the time of peace. The raid occurred between 5pm and 6pm, with the footprints and cattle herding the direction of Pibor County, the home of the Murle, he said.

The local MP called on the government to look to trace and arrest the thieves in Pibor to bring back the stolen cattle. Cattle raiding and related violence killed 1,000 people in 2011 and state-wide disarmament campaign launched this year after nearly 900 people were killed in violence over December and January.

Over 140,000 people as they were forced to flee their homes and/or need humanitarian assistance.

In December 2011 around 6,000-8,000 armed youth primarily from the Luo Nuer ethnic group were mobilized militarily to launched a series of systematic attacks on the Murle tribe of Pibor County over a 12 day period crossing into January 2012.


In August, four members of the Dinka Bor tribe from Bor County were arrested in Bor under suspicion of taking part in a cattle raid on Pibor County’s Koth Char village.

After military confrontation with the thieves, on their arrival to Anyidi Payam of Bor County, two members of the thieves were injured, the rest escaped but were later caught.

Murle leaders asked for 418 cows in compensation for the raid but this figure was dismissed by the people of Bor as "unconfirmed". The raiders themselves told police they had taken between 50 and 100 cows

The state government pressurised the Bor community to collect 418 cattle in one month to be given to owner of the cattle in Pibor.

On Sunday, September 23, Jonglei state government handed over the cattle to their owner from Murle community in presence of the two commissioners of Bor and Pibor counties.

The MP, Kuol Bol Ayom said the they had accepted to collect cattle communally "because we are buying peace" between Pibor and Bor, adding that the number of cattle of cattle was exaggerated.

Some in Bor County are not happy that so many cattle have been handed over without any proper investigation from the court of appeal.

Bor Youth leader Philip Thon Ayuen said that there were doubts that just four thieves could steel over 400 cattle in one raid and escort them all the way to Bor and the government had not investigated properly.

The Chief Administrator of Anyidi Payam, Bona Majok, said there were some complicated figures reported regarding the stolen cattle and case was not forwarded to the court to find out the accurate figure of the stolen cattle.

“There were some many cases reported, the report we received in the Payam after the incident took place, the owner of the cattle reported to us the number of the stolen cattle from him to be approximately 300 cows, and in police investigation the figure was said to be 60, 85, 100, and some from Juba said the figure to be 400 cattle and the Juba figure was accepted,” he said.

      Dinka Bor are liars. Kuol Manyang is a greedy cattle thieve and cold blood murderer thirsty for Murle innocent blood. Dinka cannot return any single cattle they stolen from Murle. This report about returned cattle is a big lie. Instead, Dinka Bor SPLA loot Murle cattle and abduct Murle women and children in thousands. These cattle are given to Kuol Manyang who then sell for his own benefit. All th

        Wisemonybeer,you commented bogusly like rebel and i belief you are amongst those who don’t like peace in Jonglei State you don’t feel sorry about innocent children and women dying because of cattle raiding. You don’t point at community X and Y as source of problem in Jonglei but how to harmonize communities and stay peacefully is what to be at look at.

Because now it is clear that SPLA was fighting for food and to loot everything. It was not about liberation, it is about stealing and tribalism for Dinka. Let Khartoum take Juba by force instead of allowing retarded dinka cows murdering people

    The number of cattle was unknown as Koul Bol put it, though we did’t heard from MPS representing payams of makuach and Anyedi, because they are the one to dispute the number but because they’re not working for their consistencies but their own. When thieves went to pibor and came back without even cattle, Government of State almost was in chaos to extent they want all cattle camps are around Bor

    It is now a lesson learning from other tribes to be sure that Murle will not stop raiding cattle though there is peace because it is addicted to their blood.
    Please Murle, taking other pples’ properties will not let u riches.
    Otherwise, shame on you all Murle from the town to Villages as whole.

      The answer is with CREATOR sometime when you compare NUER’s dyfunction brains. He should be ashame of calling DINKA cowards since they feared of DINKA BOR and fled to their husbands in KHARTOUM to be used like whores during the civil-war, leaving DINKA to fight arabs. Taking of cattles while grazing out of sight by owners is not called ’war’ Mr illiterate, it’s called ’thief/ stealing.

    I believe this is the only solution for ending cattle raid & theft problem!
    I just finished my deep analysis about the cattle theft and raid in the south and I ended up with some facts that I love to share with you!
    First:People in the south consider the cow as holy creature to the point of worshiping it,absolutely not for sale,

    repondre message

    • 26 September 2012 11:58, by Jalaby

      the more cows you have the more power and high position you get in the south,absolutely you get more wives to go nut! the cow is the core business item in the south, for instance,if you rape a lady then you’ve to pay cows as fine,abducted child usually sold for 40 cows (it’s really not fair to sell a human for just 40 cows!).

      • 26 September 2012 12:11, by Jalaby

        Second:Ironically, the only beer factory in Juba puts the picture of cow face that has big horn as normally cows in the south are so famous of having very big horns, the factory puts that cow face on its beer bottle to attract more people to buy that beer as they know people in the south are mad of cow especially Dinka people!

        • 26 September 2012 12:56, by Jalaby

          instead of building a factory to produce medicine or clean water that people in the south desperately need, they built a beer factory and called it "White Bull Lager" and put cow face on it to attract cow lovers!
          Cow has nothing to do with beer!

            • 26 September 2012 13:41, by Jalaby

              Finally:The root that cause the problem is the cow itself, as long as cows available among people then that will always encourage them to fight over and lose their lives, the cows should be eradicated and completely vanished from the south, let us get rid of all the cows and not leaving a single one behind!
              Let us all damn the cows!
