October 30, 2015 (Nyamilepedia)—The recently attacked community of Dinka Bor in Jonglei state, who claimed the attack was carried out by Murle raiders, un-confirmed claim Murle community denied, has mobilized it’s youth with heavy backing from South Sudan’s national army, the SPLA, to attack Murle community in Pibor state (GPAA).
An eye witness who preferred anonymity leaked the information about the confidentially done mobilization of Dinka Bor youth and SPLA to Nyamilepedia today. He said, the youth from Bor villages have gathered themselves with some tribal units of SPLA and are now moving toward Gumuruk County of Pibor state.
‘It’s very clear that the Dinka Bor youth and some tribalised SPLA units are on their way to Kubaal Boma of Manyabol payam, Gumuruk County, Pibor state. Their targets are the villages of Kubaal Boma, Iriith Boma and other neighbors’, Said the source.
The Murle community in Kubaal are said to be on a very high alert to mingle with the “would” be attackers from SPLA and Dinka Bor. One of the area’s local chiefs told our editorial Team that they have heard the mobilization and the coming of SPLA and Dinka Bor youths.
The chief, who spoke in Murle language, was translated to be saying ‘Kubaal boys’ are ready to defend the women, children and the land of Murle from any aggression.
‘We have heard their mobilization and coming, “logos o kubaal” (Kubaal boys) are ready to defend the children, women and the land of Murle in general from any aggression. Be it the SPLA, be it the Dinka Bor, coming to make more orphans, widows and loot Murle property again, we will mingle with them,’ Quoted the chief.
He denied his community has attacked Bor, and accused SPLA of always taking side with Dinka Bor. He said, he is not surprised to hear SPLA is coming alongside Bor Youth. He said the SPLA is a national army by name and in it we see Kuol Manyang, minister of defense, Malual Ayom, deputy chief of staff for administration, Philip Aguer Panyang, SPLA spokesman, Malak Ayuen etc.
‘ I am not surprised, it is Kuol Manyang, Malual Ayom, Philip Aguer, Malak Ayuen who are coming alongside their youths. The SPLA is just a national army by name inside it’s all Bor’. Stressed the chief.
South Sudan national army, SPLA, recently announced the death of seven (7) soldiers, including one junior commander killed in the attack. SPLA’s spokesman, colonel Philip Aguer, who hails from Dinka Bor confirmed the news.
That could be the reason why SPLA is openly on move with youth to attack Murle. A sources in Bor Town says the Jonglei state’s deputy governor, Hon. Baba Midan Konyi, who is from Murle was seen giving financial supports to the mobilized Bor youth in Town before they left.
