March 19, 2015 (RUMBEK) – Lakes state’s ministry of education has moved 19 primary school into town due to rising insecurity in remote areas.

According state minister of education Dut Makoi, the schools were moved for the safety of staff and students.

He also noted that a number of schools in rural villages have been closed down due to an ongoing cycle of revenge killings and violence that has gripped certain areas.

The worst affected counties are Yirol West, Cueibet, Rumbek North, Rumbek East and Rumbek Central.

“As a council of ministers, we have decided to pass a decision that we amalgamated 19 primary schools to be moved into Rumbek town for their safety,” said Makoi. “We realise that insecurity has distracted learning in rural villages and [that the] only option left is to relocate those schools affected to safe places,” he added.

The schools in question have been amalgamated in accordance with a resolution adopted by the state council of ministers.

The decision came after inter-clan clashes erupted over the weekend, claiming 90 lives.

The minister of local government and law enforcement agency, Jok Ayom Majak, said that clashes erupted in Bulbar cattle camp between Rup and Pakam backed by their allies of Nyang and associate clans. The fighting continued for nine hours. Dozens of people remain missing.
