June 3, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — South Sudan Army which was deployed in Mundri West County in Western Equatoria state under Major Gen:  Johnson Juma Okot Commander of D6 and Brig: Korokoni to contain the situation in the county after the incident in the county last month have today gone for a visit to Bangolo Payam and had rallies with local community of Ladingwa and Garia (Medewu) respectively.

Some government representatives in the convoy are the commission of Mundri West County Mr. Hassan Bakit and other officials in the county including the SPLM County Secretary Mr. Wesley Walla and religious leaders.

The intention of their Visit was not clear but during their rallies with the locals in the area, they said, they had gone to investigate for the presence of the rebel in the area and inductee with the elders and the religious leaders to ask Mr. Wesley Welebe and his loyalist to stop fighting the government forces but instead come out.

During their visit unfortunately, the government forces which are supposed to give protection to the local populations and protect their lives and properties have turned out to be robbers and looters. The Solders had badly looted local population in Ladingwa and Garia. Among others things looted are food items such as Maize grains, Blankets, Cassava flour, G/nuts, cloths, Mattresses etc.

It’s clearly understood that the government soldiers deployed in Mundri West County were hungry and were badly starving.  If no attention is paid and no provision of food is made to them in the days to come, residents in the villages in Greater Mundri will suffer continually of such lootings.

    Bias and non balance article.

    This writer is bias and hatred towards the loyalists and Nationalist citizens who are In the Armed forces of South Sudan who are defending the freedom of all in South Sudan.

    In the 1990s during the Mission to capture Juba, This Mundri County and all Equatoria nyam nyam people used to called the SPLA MAINSTREAM TORIT, “Police Gabaa,” or “Bushes Police or Forest police!”
    Then they used to run to Juba city and leaked the Intel to Bashir army about the build up of the SPLA MAINSTREAM TORIT to attacked Juba soon.

    Anyway, this writer just was In Uganda claim as ugandan during the war: 1990s .
    For your convenience information please stop accused the SPLA MAINSTREAM JUBA ARMY Nationalist citizens for non factual Information.
    I speak my words out and May God be with the people of South Sudan.

    Thank you very much.

      I will continue to call current SPLM/A forces a looters. it seems that your not part of fighting during the capture of Juba. i was born in the war and raised in war trained has freedom fighter not like the current spla. you’re one of them can be call police gabaa, looter, segregation in tribe but doesn’t know the history of Mundri in 21 yrs of war. what you know is only write nonsense and useless comments but cannot write any article of your own. Do you know where Mundri was located for you to write about Mundri. Just enjoy your stolen money of south Sudan to support vision less leaders and Diplomatics of south Sudan. I never agree with any of your comment until SPLM change its still of management or ruling.

      Dinkas never quit their bulling and looting other people’s material. That is why they Started the country with corruption agendas. Your elders and president don’t know how far they have reach in the eyes of the world. Lying of inclusive is not true any more. the world have survey that already. and Southern Sudanese are getting out about your Dead vision of ruling forever. W will never let that happen at all. Your father have killed Nuer but will defeat you.

    Dear Alfred Moru, when you have created disturbance for the national security, then be prepare for the consequence, you are worry about the food looted by SPLA soldiers if you do not tell your people to stop killing innocent people driving along the national road including solders, then be prepare for the more then looting, i would like to advise you to learn from what is happening in greater Upper Nile states. where there is a war civilian are the first to suffer. Please do not misleading the peaceful community of greater Mundri, leave them on the peace, they are preparing for cultivation and not nonsense of the so call arrows boys.

    so the army need to draw lesson not all the times loyal and yet suffering in dignified silence to protecte interest of visionless people who lack leadership skill. this government loved those armies so much in propecting their interest but is doing nothing for them including their childern.

      I Would still speak out about the language of a criminal but should stop here because the advice is going to ignorant, they do not understand what is right and good, anyway some of them are now writing out of frustration because soon the driving of B8s is ending and be substituted by misery (pay back)
      soon m7 is forced to return the balance of the Uganda troops back with a lot of shame
