April 4, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Latest reports from Juba confirmed that Mundari Youth raided Jopa village on the outskirts of Juba yesterday, killing one person and burning down several tukuls in the area.
According to the Commissioner of Juba County, the attack might have been carried out by disgruntled cattle raiders from Mundari.
The residents have confirmed that a police force, which was dispatched from Juba, has arrived at the scene but the raiders have already left the village.
Another reliable source from Juba, Arkanjolo Lado, who briefed our editorial team on phone, alleges that the youth are threatening to attack Juba and its outskirts any time soon.
“they will go inside Juba anytime from now even up to J1… they can enter Juba through Gudele, Koryjek, Bilpham, Gumbo, Kor William or Jebel Lado” Arkanjolo said.
“they have armed gunmen in the outskirts all around Juba and they will soon be shutting down Juba to Bor road and will not allow any river movement” he added.
According to Stephen Wani, who spoke on Eye Radio, the grievances of cattle keepers must be addressed to prevent further chaos in and around Juba.
“The group of people came and started shooting, looting and burning down the community houses and so on. This phenomenon of our cattle keepers is something that needs to be addressed. If it is not addressed, these cattle keepers will continue to destabilize the people.” Wani reiterates.
The Mundari youth have also claimed responsibility of having attacked a boat on the River Nile on its way to Bor two days ago, killing 8 traders and diverting the boat to undisclosed location.
Although attempts to reach the suspects failed to obtain their account, Arkanjolo Lado and other observers believe that the attackers are raising two major grievances:
- Extension of Central Equatoria Governor’s term.
- SPLA-Juba attacked Mundari cattle camps on behalves of certain tribes.
The Mundari Chiefs have accused the government troops of raiding their cattle camps and stealing their cattle, an allegation that was aired earlier last month by the Central Equatoria Governor, Wani Konga.
Governor Konga warned last month that the youth might take up arms in self-defense if attacked or raided by the SPLA.
The host community has also accused the SPLA of not being neutral in conflict resolutions between the Mundari and internally displaced cattle keepers from Dinka tribe in their area.
The community is also aggrieved and accused members of Salva Kiir government of conspiring against extending the term of Central Equatoria State Governor, Clement Wani Konga.
After the national parliament controversially extended the presidential term of Salva Kiir and his government, many governors have convened their parliaments to extend their terms.
Two Equatorian governors, Clement Wani Konga and his counterpart, Joseph Bakosoro, the governor of Western Equatoria State, have reportedly failed to get their terms extended.
While Governor Konga was elected on SPLM ticket in 2010, Gen. Bakosoro won an election as an independent candidate in his state but the SPLM has an upper hand in the parliament.
It is not our problem,it is Central Equatoria problem
Central Equatoria problem is a South Sudanese problem. Mundari’s problem is a South Sudanese’s problem, but Dinka do know that because they are totally dump and brainless community. However, we the rest of South Sudanese are available to educate this community with coo-coo brain president.
When will you stopping educate Dinka since you Nuer started fighting Dinka from 1982 to the present? In fact, I witness corrupted Nuer of Anya Anya two used their power of guns to raided neighborhood whom doesn’t have a gun. I remembered the followers of Bol anya anya used to raids Ruweng Dinka for cows to get married multiple wives, and the followers of Gai Tut, chuol Deng and etc, used to raid Ngok Lualyak for Cows to get married multiple wivies. Nuer used to killed Dinka while going to Bugo and Killed them while coming back from From Bugo. Listen loon, Unity State has to be for Nuer a lone, and two counties of Dinka need create their own because u greedy food lover, and cowardice fighting Arab. I hate when Riek created fake multistate and doesn’t divided Unity State.
I am a good loser,but i think your Dr.Riek will never ever become president of our country.
mundari are right to resist something calling itself a government while violating the rights of citizens. kiir must go by all means. Nuer has resisted already salva kiir ‘s incompetent regime and they have done their part . what remains now is very little that needs those who love peace and development among all s sudanese ‘s 64 tribes . what a failed government!! when two brothers fight if you are a just would you give one of them a stick to beat another one? no, but salva kiir ‘s government is now showing the world what has never happened since the genesis.
what happen with the Mundari youth? why government do not want to meet their grievances while they are saying a system is fare for all to have their rights why SPLA involve civilian fighting are they belong to tribes X and Y or they are national troops?
SpL-Juba is not a national military anymore, but bunch of collection of looters allied themselves to big thieves in the parliament.
If this is confirmed as Mundari youth alone, it’s not good for them to attack civilians or the neighboring Bari or any other civilian villages. But if the attacks are directed towards SPLA-Juba soldiers then well done and good job. In fact they need to join hands with the already existing rebellion movements so Juba will fall into the hands of the opposition sooner and rescue our civilians from the carnage of Kirr’s dictatorial regime.
No compliant anymore because no one will listen to your vioce from this Juba’s tribal half-government of the so-called Salva Kiir. Just pick-up your guns and join South Sudan’s visionary future President Dr. Riak Machar to see Mr. Kiir’s exit such that you will have your maximum freedom in the Republic of South Sudan (RSS or FRSS) forever and ever.
when you concern money only without justice ur regime will ruin. it will become like handful of oil. never believe shilluk and bor.
Every body should understand now that the present situation need not to be ignored otherwise the two major points put forward by the youth are real, that is the bigining and let any person , being the TRIBALSPLA juba dont think that they will this time succeed their december 2013 act.
leaving your homeland and inveding your neighbours land means you are cursed and looking for where you can get lost and be wiped out completelly,
this country will not stay in peace if these un civilised animals are just left freely to scatter themselves in the Equatoria land
For you ladies and gentlemen, you pretend siding Kiir because you want sucked money yet his regime does not no who you are. The worldwide continent is aware that Mr. Kiir will sit side to ICC court later for war crimes and randomness you don’t adjust soon. Please don’t regretted once Kiir finished your fake cheapest politicians.
Frank speaking, Kiir had been my classmate in America Public University in 2012, trying to learn School of management department of Public Administration yet he rejected because of his lowest performance.
However, In Unity State-Bentiu’s fake cheaper Caretaker Governor had sole his relative to mr genocidal Kirr, yet I don’t blame Mr. Nguen owing that system has been a doctrine from his late Paramount Chief Manytuil who sale Bul community to Gogrial before he dies and his sons applies the same. In addition in the level of the countrywide or Unity State at large, Nguen could n’t been valued though he side Kiir with no ground we later on slaughtered him once peace came because will not go to Gogrial side yet remaind our cheapest.
Therefore, thus, the interested cheaper youths who are siding regime and pretending as an intellectuals educated once your time is coming please where you a elliptic on all Chase admitted. Ironically regretted to side your beloved sons, daughters, women and men being miserably massacres in December 2013 yet you side money, as a young man your peer ones had been fucked by another man, man forced to ate somebody, rapping of women/girls and you have no said on thesis. What next do you want side out of these? Imagine Dr. Mchar is a PHD holder could n’t exhausted himself for siding cheapest futures young man who have no said on his beloved, as a young man leader are asking yourself why you were born and what to do? Yes how would you lead people?
This must be the act from Salva Kiir’s people.
Those who side and support the ethnic regime of Kiir and Jaang Edlers are like foolish snake charmers. The snake can and will strike each one of them anytime without warning.
If you are a dinka of great B…el gz,you guyz have a right to fight with Nuer because we have not fought with you but when we meet that’s when you jaang gonna realized that Nuer are badest than any tribes in these world. We know everything that you jaang are doing in South Sudan and the whole world gonna witness what u stupid dinka president doing such a crimes …………….we are Ney tinaath and we shall never and ever lost hope,” Salva kiir is a dinka president not south Sudan at large or in general”
