9 South Sudanese Killed in Jonglei Attacks

According to the Jonglei state Governor, two separate inter-communal revenge attacks have left at least nine people dead in South Sudan’s Bor town of Jonglei State.

Jonglei State Governor, Denay Chagar in a press statement on Sunday condemned the killing and called for the arrest of the suspected killers.

“On November 19, two men travelling on a motorbike to Anyidi Payam were ambushed on their way by suspected criminals from the Pibor Administrative Area. As a result, Anyidi youth took the law into their own hands and started to target members from Pibor living in Bor Town, killing seven.

“For this inhuman brutal killing, Jonglei State government is shocked and dismayed with the unfortunate act and strongly condemns the attack,” said Governor Chagar.

He sent his condolences to Pibor Area residents for the death of the seven.

Most parts of the Greater Jonglei State have experienced communal and tribal violence, mainly caused by cattle raiding, child abduction and disputes over grazing land. Greater Jonglei authorities have in the past convened peace and reconciliation conferences to discuss the issues of killings and cattle rustling in their surroundings.
