July 23, 2013 (BENTIU) - The caretaker governor of Unity state, Joseph Nguen Monytuel, has asked the commissioners of Parieng, Guit, Rubkotna and Mayom counties to arrest those responsible for a string of recent murders within three days.

Two people were killed in Agarek payam [district] of Parieng county, while four people were murdered in Manga payam of Guit county in attacks over the weekend.

Unity state’s deputy governor, Michael Chiengjiek Geay, who has just returned from Manga to assess the attacks, described the murders as “inhuman”.

He told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday that innocent children and women had been burned to death in a house in Manga and warned that there was a danger that such acts could lead to inter-tribal fighting.

The alleged culprits must be brought to court to answer the charges, he said.

The deputy governor said that residents of Guit county were not involved in the attack, adding that the government had requested that the commissioners of Rubkotna, Mayom and Parieng arrest the people responsible.

Nearly 2,000 people have fled the area of Agarek to Parieng county amid fears of reprisal attacks from Guit county, after a group allegedly from Parieng county set fire to a number of tukuls - thatched huts made from local materials - killing both people and cattle.

Calling for calm, Unity state’s caretaker governor vowed to investigate the incident, urging Agarek residents to return to their homes, where he said they will be protected by county authorities.

Mayom county commissioner John Bol Mayak said on Tuesday that he had arrested the ringleader of the group who is alleged to have raided 434 cows from neighbouring Koch county. Madany Reay Kuol is accused of being in command of the 10 raiders who attacked Mar payam of Koch county on 19 July, leaving three people seriously injured.

According to Mayak, local authorities in the area said they had recovered 90 of the 434 stolen cattle but are still searching for nine other suspects. Mayak admitted that the exact number of cattle raided needed to be confirmed before compensation and return of the stolen cattle could be arranged.

        I don’t know why Taban created Guit County within Panrieng County? Bring Nuer people to created Nuer County in side Dinka County is a bizarre thing I never see on this World. Instead, Dinka Panaruu created their counties within their territorials. Panaruu has to be careful with their cowardly. Why small Jikeny have county than DinKa panaruu?

          Why small Jikeny Nuer have two counties than Dinka Panaruu? In this World, South Sudan Country cannot go to Ethiopian and created South Sudan country within Ethiopian lands by themselves. No way Panaruu can go to Mayom County to created their county within Mayom County. Its impossible. Only people can migrates to stay in other county.

            Unity State cannot take people from Unity State and go to created Unity State in Lake State with different administration even though we are one Country. Its impossible. And this is what had been done by Taban Deng to Dinka Panaruu.

              I wish Dinka Panaruu will not allow Manga to be called Guit County any more. If Nuer want to go to Panrieng County, let them stay as under Panrieng County administration, not going to created Nuer County within the Country. This is made Dinka panaruu look dumb and stupid. What is wrong with Panaruu people?

Taban son of Nuer whore created it within Panrieng County, and I don’t know why former commissioner of Panrieng County allow Nuer to created Guit County of Manga in Panrieng County.

      NOW YOU WILL SEE HOW EASY THIS IS IS TO MAKE THE GOVT. WORKING. EVERYONE IN THAT CHAIN WILL DO THEIR DUTIES VERY WELL. WE LET THE POLICE GO FOR CRIMINALS ONLY AND IF THEY CAN’T GET THEM, WE SEND THE SPECIAL FORCES, WHICH WILL MAKE THIS CRIMINAL A WANTED PERSON AND THE CASH REWARDS TO HAND HIM OVER WILL BE GIVEN TO THOSE WHO CAN BRING HIM ALIFE TOO.
