Breaking News: Anyuak Armed Youth Attacked Nuer Refugees In Pinyudu Refugees Camp In Ethiopia

Feb 05, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —- Armed youth groups from Anyuak community from Gok Woreda of Gambella region stormed Pinyudu Refugees Camp – inhabited by Nuer refugees – in a rampant killing of unarmed Nuer refugees in what is viewed as the continuation of Gambella incident where the Anyuak killed the Nuer in a fight triggered by the land dispute, Yien Thargoany from the region has contacted Nyamilepedia newsroom. The blocks in the camp occupied by Lou Nuer and Gajiok Nuer were the ones hit the hardest by rowdy Anyuak youth.

“The anuak in Gog woreda of Gambella region had came up with a very strong

irritation by attacking the Nuer refugees in Pinyudu refugees camp part of Gog woreda. It is confirmed today that the attack was carried out by Anyuak gun-men since morning of 05/02/2016 where they entered into village one and two in the camp where Lou-Nuer and Gaajiok Nuer live, the fighting left three Anuaks dead and one Nuer man killed instantly. Consequently the Anyuak armed youth burnt down some houses around where the fighting occurred,” Yien Thargoany has reported.

The helpless Nuer refugees – who rely on sticks, hoes, pangas and traditional spears to defend themselves against the well-armed attackers – fear for their dear lives, believing that the attackers could come back any time and do more harm than what they carried out.

“The Nuer in Pinudu are in a serious tension up to this evening, defending themselves using spears while the Anuak hold light machine guns. The Nuer youth formed vigilant groups guarding the whole camp, they have now surrounded the camps using their spears as they don’t know the direction in which the Anynuak can strike,” Thargoany worriedly stated.

Pinyudo is the largest refugees camp in Ethiopia, accommodating thousands of South Sudanese refuges most of whom are Nuer who escaped South Sudan civil war. A representative from UNHCR couldn’t be reached for comment. It’s not known at this point whether the Gambella regional Government will urgently dispatch a force to police Pinyudo camp.

Meanwhile the situation in Gambella has calmed, Governor of Gambella region Gatluak Tut Khot deployed Ethiopia’s federal police force and disarmed both the Nuer and the Anyuaks serving in Gambella Police Force. The number of those killed from both sides in Gambella incident is yet to be established.

  • Anyak are small tribes in number but they know don’t their future that they will finish by fighting among the Ethiopian nation , now they were influence &armed by dinka which will bring fight b/n Ethiopia and south Sudan government as Ethiopian didn’t like such a terrorist act

      I see somany Jaang flocking to this article for comments which puzzled me as to what concerns Jaang has in this Anyuak & Ethipian Nuer incident unless the invisible hand of Jaang government of South Sudan is playing a major role in the escalation of instability to destabalized the Ethiopia region of Gambella. I see this case as not a Jaang prerogative rather than the possibilities that Juba warlords are attempting to use Anyuaks as mercinaries to fight Ugandan, Egyptian, SPLA-North of Sudsan Rebel’s war on the side of their Jaang of South Sudan against Ethiopian and Nuers in general and in parts or as whole(tribe)

    • Stop fabricating lies in useless media

  • Those of Anyuak community are foolish in nature, what made them to attack refugee instate of Nuer who are citizen in Gambella. the fighting erupted between Nuer and Anyuak who are both Ethiopian citizen not south sudanese citizen. they are fearful people who not want confrontation fighting. please Anuak note that Nuer who live in Gambella will attack you If you continue attacking South sudanese refugee because they come from Nuer tribes.

  • Anyuak should know this better because take fight with nuer will be the end of anyuak they should know that from history. Refugees in pinyidu were not Ethiopian they were south Sudanese national who flee from war in South Sudan so anyuak should attack them because the fighting is between nuer of Ethiopia and anyuak of Ethiopia. I think they should leave refugees a lone.

  • This’s a lie I thing people need to stop listening to this network all I know is that,there are three Anuak people that was kill by Nuer in refugee camp yesterday 7 year old child , and a woman and old man

    Today is 02/06/2016 9:AM central USA
    I just get of the phone there is no like this happen in pinyhudo camp

    who ever writing in network is a big lire
    I think this network is sometimes like to push there Nuer in danger

    There no housing like that in pinyhudo refugee camps

    Please who ever using this network check your source first before you post anything
    ,but if you’re doing propaganda, than you are playing with your Nuer tribe mind and you’re putting them in dangerous situation

    Good luck with your nonsense news

    • May be u call those who are killer , they can’t tell u the truth as they organized with dinka elderly council but at last it will be b/n s.Sudan government&Ethiopia government as anyak are making terrorist act

  • Why everyone seem to be a nuer enemy?

    • South Sudanese money made others against numerous but the dinka elderly council plan is to cleansing those who against Salva, they killed murle, nuer, shiluk&equatorial by paying the same tribes to fight or by paying d/n tribes to fight &making his tribe safe but The main problem of dinka in south Sudan are NUER, if you are Nuer know z you ate part of South Sudan government worries even if u size they will one day get u

    We the Nuers are very very stupid. How comes that we as strangers of the Anuaks could attack them in the first place. We have been planning to take their lands for years now . Unfortunately, the almighty God has turned against us because he knew that we are the problem. Look brothers , let us not look at our large number because “It is not the size of the dog, but the degree of the fight within the dog is the most important”, and this is why we are keeping on loosing since the day we started this mess. I think we have to think twice, otherwise we will keep on being on the losing side.

  • Lony Ngundeng SSAF.

    You are right Good Luck, this is the same way they used to instigate war in South Sudan in the name of Nuer fighting Government or Government killed Nuer and so they wanted to revenze, now you can see they squarely put the blame to the Government of South Sudan to have instigated the current unrest btn Nuer and Anyuak. Nuer will never be safe any where so long they continue with their tribalistic behaviuors.

  • chala

    In this Refuge camp issue! UN should take responsibility. It’s not the first time this kind things happened, they should know better. They must move this refuge camp to Lare or Itang.

  • dear readers. the think that has been dan by Anuak is not good b/c Refugee are not citizen of Ethiopia. If they need fighting ,whey they connot go to Gambella where there is Nuer citizen. please those who support what has been dan by Anuak is not good to you. you support in masmedia/facebook but you will not go directly to Nuer. Anuak are enemy of Nuer in 2oo3 G.C/ 1998 E. When war occured b/n Anuak and Abasha/buony,Anuak come to Nuer area . Nuer be come helper of Anuak . Against in 2002 G.C Anuak attack Dinka, they kill many dinka and Dinka try to run to Nuer areas they told to nuer help us we are finished by Anuak/anyuak that is why they leave block 12 up to now. Nuer are helper of Dinka and helper of Anyuak/Anuak. for me i will say that Nuer are good b/c they are your helper. plaese both you be good thinker, Both of you are enemies of nuer, you can not remember even one a day. But there will be a rword from God .God blease Nuer.

  • where ever you go in East Africa and eastern africa you find the Nuer is the problem, I don,t know how did God create such craxy people. any way the world will teach them a lesson

  • Look whoever blame is wrong Annuak started the war with no cause,and also Juba massacred was state policy planned by South Sudan government

  • GatNor

    Those of you gearing your comment towards blaming Nuers are wrong in not considering the genesis of the situation. First of all, it was over a land dispute between an Anyuak & a Nuer gentleman. It went to court and the Anuak brother lost the case. The Anyuak brother started terrorizing the Nuer brother and one day the Anyuak brother tried killing the Nuer brother and at that minute there was a shoot out and the Anyuak got shot on the leg and on the hand.

    How an isolated case as such becomes an arm rebellion/uprising against citizens of South Sudan who are refugees in the territory of Ethiopian federation and a national threat, that is now threatening the very lives of not only Ethiopian citizrns, particularilly thr Nuers is and should be a matter of a serious concern for the Ethiopian Federation and the Jasng government of South Sudan.

  • Henok

    yeah, how came the refugees lived in owner of the land and came up with murdering the owner, shame on Nuear refugee living in Anuak land, UN must take the responsibility of removing these animal behaving people,

    UN, you brought these people to in safe place and now they are causing problem in the land of Anuak people, how do you see if and refugee killing the owner of the land?
    take them away from the land of Anuak , their aim now to take over the land of Anuak and they are the causative of the conflict.
    UN must end this problem .

  • because nuer are violent people

  • Bol Gatjang

    Please Anyuak if are men,u have stop massacred those vulnerable refugee in Pinywudo refugee camp . Many of them, they know nothing regarding Gambella crisis. You are not suppose to disrupt their peaceful environment after that dog Kiir attempts to finish them.

  • Koang T. Lam

    There is NO peaceful Nuer in this world. All of them are problem wherever they go. How comes people are always on the move like animals. I have travelled and seen many different people around the world but never seen any like Nuers. Only animals are the ones that believe “land belongs to God” and therefore, want to migrate like animals. For Nuers, any piece of land they occupy (without considering the history of that land) is theirs. What is this? This an act of animals because animals are the ones who are always on the move and never consider any border or owner of any piece of land they touch or live on.

  • Malual

    Yes Koang! Even an educated Nuer (eg. one with a doctorate degree) is equal to a dead Murle, Collo, Jurchol, Jaye, Latuka, Nuba etc…….

  • nuer is a stupid tribe a tribe without land is a enemy of all tribe the world and they are postralise today they are here and there by no perminent place.
