The community members of the Gudele residential area, Block 7, bowed together to support the Police in detecting and arrested 13 members of the notorious “Nigger gang”.

The gang members were taken to the Gudele Police station by the community members. During the police screening of the suspects, 12 of them were released by the Police and only one of them who has been detained and charged for the murdering of a youth in Gudele Area.

“The security situation in Gudele residential areas has been considerably improved after the PCRC was formed and we are working closely with the Police,” says Emmanuel, the Quarter Council Chief of Gudele Block 7 and Chairman of the Gudele PCRC.

Narrating another incident in the same Block, the Head Teacher of the Gudele East Primary school in Block 7, Mr. Michael Guya Mono, informed Nyamilepedia editorial team that the community members also helped in identifying five girls who were planning to join the Niggers gang. The parents of the girls were called in the school and advised to counsel the girls.

“We are working very closely with the community to identify criminal activities in Gudele residential areas. It is proving to be very useful,” Said Police 1st Lt. OchayaJoseph.

The members, including Quarter Council chiefs from the blocks in Gudele residential areas and the Gudele Division Police Chief, agreed that they will be meeting twice a month to brief and identify security issues within their areas and try to find solutions to address them by working together as partners under the South Sudan National Police Service and community policing programme.

“I am happy that Police has identified areas with criminal activities and are taking action to post more Police personnel to such areas. This is very reassuring for the women and girls,” said Awad James, a resident from Gudele residential area Block9.

Gudele is one of the residentials areas that are still occupied by the Nuer Ethnic group and one of the areas where fighting broke out in July this year.

At least a few murder cases have been reproted here involving police and members of national security, however, it is yet to be investigated if such cases were targeted or not.

South Sudan capital has experience many security threats including all-out war, gang rapes, looting and assassinations of journalists and politicians involving a group known as “unknown gunmen”, foreign gangs groups, national security and SPLA rival factions for most of the last three years.
