Jan 20, 2015[ Nyamilepedia] — According to Voice of America [VOA], the rebel forces loyal to former vice president, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, have brought the fighting that has wracked the country for the past 13 months into Greater Bahr el Ghazal

According to Col. Philip Aguer, the SPLA-Juba army spokesman,  the rebel fighters “…came from the southern part of Unity State and are trying to transport the fighting into Lakes state by trying to attack Maper,” a village in Lakes state.

Aguer said fighting was still ongoing in Maper when he spoke to South Sudan in Focus on Monday afternoon. The spokesman is yet to verify the number of casualties on both sides.

According to the UN-run Radio Miraya, several houses were burnt down and an unspecified number of civilians were killed in the clashes.

The SPLM/SPLA-IO spokesman, Brig.Gen. Lul Ruai Koang, denies any knowledge of the attack.

According to the State Minister of Local Government and Law Enforcement, Jok Ayoum Majak, who spoke to Radio Miraya, the gunmen attacked the county headquarters and engaged the security forces.

Jok believes that the unidentified gunmen killed scores and burnt down multiple homes after defeating the security forces in Rumbek North County.

Fighting erupted in Lakes state shortly after violence broke out in Juba in December 2013. Since then, Lakes state has remained relatively calm from the current civil war, and thousands of South Sudanese have sought refuge in the state from fighting in Jonglei, Unity and Upper Nile states.

Lake state, however, has never been peaceful for the last two years as hundreds of civilians, members of parliaments, chiefs, commissioners and family members to the state governor, Matur Chut, have been killed by gunmen or animals.

    The rebel’s fighters of Dr. Riek and armed youth from Mayendit and Panjar brought shame to Nuer community who love peace. Look at how badly they were killed and defeated yeasterday. it was just transporting human flesh to birds of Rumbek North County. The birds are celebrating day of special meat of Nuer who attemped to play with Pakam Gelweng. Please never try again. You will finish and mind that your people are there being accommodated and fed. They will suffer if you continue with agression.

  • Well done White army. FYI- there were no civilians killed during the fighting. Any corps of civilians found on the ground were killed by SPLA Juba to tarnish the image of Freedom Fighters. I was in Malek Payam which is along Rumbek – Unity state highway. We went to the scene after the fighting was reported.

  • The situation in south sudan must be take under control of world peace makers and peace must be establish in all part of s sudan .

  • Philip Aguer,

    Please calm down. Do not make up liars like you and Kiir made up coup that place the South Sudan in chaos today. The people of Lakes state are fighting among themselves. There were no rebels went to Lakes State. The army is fighting with youth in Lakes State. There is no rebels activity at all in Lakes State.

  • Stay tune more are still coming, that was not fighting, it was subject greeting from reliable sources.

  • Let them tastes the bitterly instigated war by their Banydit on Nuer. I prefer to hear that it reach Rumbek and Yirol.

  • Ghetto

    God have mercy on us, we are finishing ourselves
