Feb 25, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —- Locals in the nearby suburb of Asanza in Yambio WES have been complaining of bad smell in the teak forest and along the road going to Kasia just after Bazungua on Maridi road. It took some brave men mobilized by local chiefs in the area who actually wanted to find out what have been smelling so bad, they began searching in the area for the past week until they were shocked today as they found what they described as “evil place”. Mass graves have been discovered at Asanza a suburb near Yambio Airport in the nearby teak forest.

The people of Yambio have discovered several bodies scattered in large shallow ditch, many of these bodies show signs of torture and some have gone bad beyond recognition; some of the bodies are without heads, unable to count how many the bodies were. This horrific discovery have shocked the whole of Yambio town and many people are dumbfounded while others think that what has been discovered is the answer to what has been going on here in Yambio where young men regularly disappear without trace and no one knows their whereabouts.

Asking some locals to hear if they have noticed something unusual in the area, one woman said that sometimes she hears people scream in the forest in the middle of the night in most days, but because of the insecurity in town no one can really come out and ask what is going on.

One brave and courageous man stepped forward and said, “Don’t look for those who did this, it’s the SPLA Dinka killing our children in the middle of the night, these days the SPLA does not want to see young boys around they only come and pick them and accuse them of being Arrow-boys and start killing them.”

In another separate search, more than 5 bodies were also discovered under the bridge of Uze on Nabiapai road south of Yambio.

We, the Arrow-boys are directly accusing the SPLA government of Juba for sending SPLA forces to WES to commit this horrific crimes against the people of WES, this is the answer of the everyday killing which is going on in Yambio.

It’s not that these innocent people are anything bad but the SPLA are actually going house to house in some areas arresting young man and boys tortures them and kills them at night. State government is not talking about it, they know something is going on but all they do is maintain silent, and this is why no one should blame Arrow Boys who are defending the people of WES.

One man who did not want to be identified also asserted, ”The SPLA/M Juba government doesn’t want the people of WES to exist, that is the reason they arrested former Governor Joseph Bakosoro till today for no reason and they can’t explain why he was arrested. Look at what is happening in Mundri, killing everywhere now we are hearing there is war going on in Ezo since yesterday, we just want live in peace.”

Juba Government is preaching peace but killing Innocent people everywhere, the uncovered mass grave could amount to war crime and genocide in Western Equatoria State. The government of South Sudan harms the people it can protect. Western Equatoria State has been a battleground lately between the forces belong to the Government of South Sudan and local defense force simply known as Arrow Boys.

I had been personally wonder about where the international criminal tribunal courts who have arrested former Liberation’s President is ? They had been without taking a drastic measures over Kiir in seeing those gruesome pictures since genocide of Nuer. These vivid pictures were existed in media since outbreak of South Sudan civil war in Juba, South Sudan. That president as you called it, he has mental retardation and his intention is exterminate any kind of tribe with exception of Dinka .It was started Nuer in the country but now it’s Equatorial’s turn,shulluk and Murlee.

I means former Liberian President, Charles Taylor, where is ICC for Kiir?

Bol Gatjang February 25, 2016 at 7:27 pm

His genocidal ideology is pervasive in South Sudan you have seen Nuer’s mass graves in Juba and Unity State in South Sudan, and right now you have seen the mass graves of Equatorial in Yambio, South Sudan.So therefore, if there’s anything that the UN International community,United States, United kingdom, Trioka and their allies should do is now. Otherwise, it will be too late before Salva Kiir exterminate all the tribe s with exception Dinka South Sudan unless fear him

GatNor February 25, 2016 at 8:05 pm

All of this is happening while there is talks of peace and unity. Equatorial thought Jaang government favored them over the Nuers but that turn out to be a cowardice naive calculation. Lesson for the other tribes not to fall for this or any future Jaang government. Yes?

Let them pay their bills, these are the results of resorting to violence instead of peaceful solution.
Can anyone remember how many innocent civilians murdered in cool blood by the so call arrow boys along Mundri road in 2015. can anyone remember Madridi inciddent in May where hand grenade was thrown at cattle camp killing more than 6 people? who were behind that.

wad shilluk Alasili February 25, 2016 at 10:25 pm

My message is that every deserve payment of what he/she done, so people of WES are paying their debts. until they denounce violence.

Oscar de great February 26, 2016 at 5:11 am

Wad, the incident that happen in Maridi in May was between Dinkas themselves, They that grende in their cattle camp and then alleged it on the indigenous communities. Maridians have love for humanity not animals. You try to clean your dirt mouth and come back to your senses.

shame on you son of the devil.

GatNor February 26, 2016 at 10:40 am

Continue to encourage crimes against humanity in the region of Equatoria and eventual you will pay with buckets full of Jaang blood.

Goweng Torbaar February 25, 2016 at 11:37 pm

Wad Shiluk!
You are a true Dinka who care for cattle more than people. Dinka stole the money and also keep on killing innocent persons. WHAT HAPPEN TO YOU PEOPLE WHERE EVER YOU GO PROBLEM FOLLOW! Said by Joseph Bakasaro

William Logai Ochieng February 26, 2016 at 4:09 am

What is this? This is too bad for an entire nation and future generation.

J Boy February 26, 2016 at 7:10 am

This is what SouthSudanese need to killing one by one. If the other of SouthSudanese think that what happen it problem of the Nuer community a lone now it a very where now in SouthSudan. You see Dinka business they was support by Shilluk in from 2013 to killed Nuer in Malakal and now what happen to Shilluk community they where killed more than Nuer in Malakal. Now is time for all Juba regions to be Genocide in that regions of western state. Where Thomas and Mabuto Mamor. they said if the leave Juba the Equatorial will be genocide by Dinka Gang Government of Juba. And were are they. which mean those leaders from Equatorial looking for their money not their community include vice president of Southsudan. This what happen too the Nuer community more leaders from Nuers community until now they talked there is no genocide , Because they were not killed by the government who killed their families members in Juba and other regions in the country.
UN it busines if we not come together fight with this Dinka gang government of Juba UN will not do something. If you see Ban talk in Juba this week it not thing to Kirr and will continues their job to attack innocent peoples in UN camps.
If you seen the East Africa they divided SouthSudan by all country who have a borders with SouthSudan each of the country have plans to get land from SouthSudan and Dinka president don,t under what going in regions nation.

tolio, (majority of fools and killers)

now we understand when you wrote yesterday that you are the majority and can win the votes to any kind of Democracy which oppresses the minority. I got you and I tell you, you will pay by losing some Powers to the minority. Now you have lost some already. Just by the coming of the IO to Juba means you are losing because Your wishes are not to see Dr. Machar in JUBA, but he is coming NeXT month. WHEN I SAY YOU, Mean you and Your jenge the killers because you always defend them. I love the way you talk, it helps the other 63 tribes to know the colour of Your tribe. Remember the ballot Box waiting for us in 2018. We promise to take our share by pushing on reforms which starts very soon and to make political coalation With the other tribes who suffer from Your bad rule. I believe all the other 63 tribes do suffer from Your rule even some jenge do suffer. I never talk of any Development though you told me I did. Just reforms is what We want and must be followed by accountability of any massacre carried by you. When I say by you, I mean you and Your jenge who are killers.

Wad Shilluk Alassili,
My friend, it is a dirty game that you are trying to play. All knows what the dinka has done and still doing to the Chollo( Recent massacre of chollo & Nuers in Malakal PoC Site). The Equatorians in all their 3 States are being subjected to the same treatment by the Jieng government and hence have resolved to defend themselves against the government in that they have have the same and common goal with the other oppressed tribes of South Sudan. No shilluk citizen that would condone what is happening to our brothers in Great Equatoria but instead would encourage them and give them possible support to stand up against this evil barbaric regime. You are simply using this alias as a ploy to cause trouble between communities but they are wise enough to read between the lines. You are a Stupid uncouth Jange.

kenyi February 27, 2016 at 2:04 pm

why are we behaving as if we are not one people? Why can’t we live as brothers and sisters? why can’t we talk about peace? why are we always talking about our tribes rather than our beloved Country? My dear brothers and sisters, let us stop pointing fingers because we are all guilty of sin and in need of conversion. instead of judging others, let us ask God to forgive our sins and help us as we undertake the difficult task of reform. Let us all pray for our leaders to recognise that they are the servants of people and they ought to do what is expected of them.

Kenyi, its very simple you as an individual who seems to view the whole madness of Jaang in a humble spirit hoping that their is still room for peace, unity and shared valeues; i encourage you to take your holy ass to Jaang and make amends. Reconcile with them, live in peace and harmony with them and then preach to the rest of South Sudan’s smaller tribes based on your success and experiences with Jaang thereafter. Your chance of generating followers or convincing anyone for that matter will much depends on what these barbaric and merciless Jaang do with your naive and sorry ass.

Kenyi March 1, 2016 at 3:23 pm

Dear my brother GatNor,
You are entitled to your opinion and I respect that. However, I deplore your inappropriate language. please accept my apology if I hurt you in any way.
Kind Regards
