Oct 22, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — A deadly attack, today, in South Sudan’s Bor County of Jonglei state has claimed at least 40 people and left many others wounded.

Latest reports from the scene in Jalle Payam of Bor County, indicates that an attack in the area by wrestlers believed to be from Murle Ethnic group has yet again devastated the area.

The incident occurred on Thursday afternoon and the security in the area remain tense throughout the night.

According to the local residents, at least 8 children are missing and nearly 1800 herds of cattle has been raided by the cattle wrestlers.

The deadly incident coincides with many activities in Bor town which include celebrations for the new “Jonglei state”, campaign for its gubernatorial and the long-awaited withdrawals of Ugandan troops.

A few of Alain youth from the area also went to Bor town for a wrestling match with the neighboring Adumwuor youth.

Murle youth are believed to have raided the areas in the past and any peace signed with their leader, David Yau Yau, who now sides with President Kiir, was hpoed to restore peace in the area.

Bor and its sisterly counties of Twic East and Duk, which now form the new Jonglei in Kiir’s 28 states, happily received the controversial republican decree with hopes that it will safeguard the Dinka minority from their neighbors in the old Jonglei state; however, peace remains a dream for many South Sudanese including the warlord politicians.

In Kiir’s home state of Warrap nearly 100 people were killed in intra-tribal dispute over the Republican’s decree in the last two weeks.

Despite that South Sudan returned to full-scale civil war in December 2013, many areas like Jalle Payam have never witnessed a sustainable peace for many years.

Writers like exiled journalist John Penn de Ngong, now residing in Kenya, are yet victims of the latest attack in Bor County.

“It took me hours to believe that Mayen Yong Jok and nearly 40 others have just gone in a blink of an eye!” Ngong said.

In memory of his friends, Ngong shared a poem that he shared two years ago with his friends on social media over a similar incident in Ajoung and Pakeer.

“Can you believe that the same poems I posted on October 22, 2013, upon the massacre of 80 innocent people in Ajuong and Pakeer Payams, just the same area by the same killers, are being shared today, October 22, 2015”

In other reports, the people of Twic East are concluding their campaigns on what would be a future governor of the new Jonglei state.

Among the leading candidates is the current military spokesman of SPLA-Juba, col. Philip Aguer.

Aguer continues to serve in uniform, however, he is expected to take over the political post should the new states come to effect!

The JCE are to blame. Murle youths please stop going after the children Olds and the women. Other wise congratulation on your raid. A part of that land belongs to you other minorities as a compensation but you must fight those cowards before you can use it.

Please Bor,

Sell this Jalle Payam to UPDF so that they protect you from Nuer and Murle Youth.

This criminal violence will be fully defeated once the 28 states materialize and borders are fully demarcated.

For the time being,it is essential youth of Bor acquire military weapons for their selves protection and their properties in the cattle camps.

If you are attacked in your hometown, attack them in their hometowns,too.

Spoken like a true hypocrite.I supposed you could give the same advice and words of encouragements to the Nuer’s who are fighting back in selfdefense against Jaang and their allied dressed in SPLA uniforms attacking Nuers right? Cowards. Please send more of your Jaang to Nasir so their numbers could be reduced a little as you are doing to the Nuers.

fabricated and false accusations the against Murle youths. Dinka warlord, Gen. Malual Ayom, engineered this baseless claim to create a sense of insecurity in the area, purposely, to impedes the full withdrawal of the Ugandans-mercenaries-UPDF from Bor period. What a skillful liar-traitor.

Wiyual Chuol October 24, 2015 at 1:07 am

Its similarly to what was happened in 1991, when bor was reported 2000 was killed by Lou Nuer order by Dr.Riek Machar, while SPLA of John Garang Dinka leader killed Lou Nuer and reported them as Dinka. According to the UN reported 5 people killed and 7 wound by Murle.But Dinka Bor put 0 to become 50 people, is not true. Why you fear, fight like men. UPDF will not protect u for longer.

Correction Nyamilepedia,the current conflict in warrap state’s Tonj East county has nothing to do with republic decree issued by President Salva.The conflict is a communal one as a result hatred between communities.So don’t confuse our people with your fake reports which is full of propaganda.

Fabricated and baseless accusations against Murle Youths, merticulously engineered by none rather than their truly, the ultimate traitors and natural born skillful liars, the incompetent, tribal warlord, power-hungry-greedy, killer Kiir, his co-Dinka warlords-Generals, Kuol Manyang, Malong Awan, Malual Ayom, Philip Aguer, and the JCE(Dinka council of national resources looters-Ambrose Riiny-Bona Malual-makuei liar), purposely to impedes the full withdrawal of the Ugandans-mercenaries-UPDF from Bor. These treacheries even went far to had apprehended on, 10/23/2015, 76 Somalians-ISIS recruits in Juba and Bhar el ghal. Egoistical pigs!

Breaking News: The incompetent, tribal warlord, power-hungry-greedy, traitorous, killer Kiir, the Dinka-warlords-Generals, Kuol Manyang, Malong Awan, Malual Ayom, JCE (Dinka council of national resources looters-Ambrose Riiny, Bona Malual, makuei liar, Philip Aguer), had apparently-miraculously apprehended 76-Somalians-ISIS recruits in Juba and Bhar El Ghal. Comical, how in the world the heads of State sponsored-terrorists captured other terrorist group-affiliates. True validation of an old adage, “it takes a thief to catch a thief”. On 23/10/2015, it took heads of the South Sudan terrorists to caught ISIS terrorists-recruits-affiliates!
