August 5, 2015(Nyamilepedia) —- The Ugandan Peoples Defense Forces (UPDF) invaded the territorial integrity of South Sudan on August 4th 2015.

South Sudan liberty News has received credible information that the UPDF entered deep 4 to 5 miles into the sovereign soil of South Sudanese at the town of Pajok, Eastern Equatoria State.

It is reported that UPDF entered with speed faced little resistance and unexpectedly, shooting randomly at Civilians afterward laying siege of the lands and claiming ownership of the border area.

Hundreds of Civilians, mainly ethnic Acholis, are displaced, setting most women and children on the run.

The Youth in the area swear to defend their land from foreign aggressions and holding their grounds while waiting for orders from their elders in order to respond in a kind.

South Sudan Liberty news made attempts to reach Torit or Juba for comments but without success.

It is important to know, Museveni had hinted in the past, Juba is not capable of protecting its territorial integrity, and he is not lying given Juba is surviving because of UPDF.

What is not surprising is the opportunistic Museveni calculations, what better time to take South Sudan’s territory than now when he, Museveni, runs the security shows in South Sudan.

Another source revealed to South Sudan liberty news that UPDF incursion into South Sudanese territory at Pajok is with the blessings of Juba, the sole purposes is to cause displacements of the native from the area so that, the Jieng cow could have more territories to move to not just the Ma’di corridor, which never welcome these cows and their owners despite of Juba’s heavy handedness with the native in preferences of the Cattles and their keepers.

Juba is also accused of creating external chaos in Eastern Equatoria State to divert the attention of arrow-boys and equatorian community from the recent massacres of civilians in Yambio, the Capital of Western Equatoria state, and other parts of Greater Equatoria.

Stay tune as we collaborate more details from Pajok and neighboring areas!
