October 24, 2018 (JUBA) – South Sudanese army killed and committed atrocities against civilians in the south and west of Wau from June to August despite the signing of the security arrangements, said Human Right Watch on Wednesday.

The right group was told by eyewitnesses that the government forces in Wau State attacked and shot civilians, burned, destroyed or looted homes, a church and two health centres. The attacks which started on 12 June took place in the rebel-held Wad Alel and areas south and southwest of Wau town.

“There may be a new peace deal in South Sudan, but government forces are committing new abuses against civilians,” said Jehanne Henry, associate Africa director at Human Rights Watch.

“This is the latest chapter in a long history of violence and impunity that has uprooted and traumatized hundreds of thousands of people in this part of the country,” she further said.

According to the report, the South Sudanese army meant to retake several areas before the signing of the final peace agreement. However, the attacks continued after the signing of the revitalized pact until September after a short break by the end of August.

Human Rights Watch was not able to provide the civilian causalities from the attacks but based on the witnesses collected in June and July the group estimated at least eight were killed.

The group said it conducted 110 interviews between September 5 and 12 in Wau, including with 86 residents and people who fled recent fighting in areas outside Wau.

      Midit Mitot,
      If South Sudanese are not going to open their damn naive eyes and continue to dwell and rely on free UN handouts for their lifestyles, then the NGOs would always make up their stories about South Sudan & the South Sudanese purposely to go and ask for more funding and to be relevant in South Sudan indefinitely. Just like their usual lies they often make up about atrocities committed>>

        in Mayendit, Leer, Yei and other areas last year and this year. And when these NGOs made stories and ask to support their stories with concrete evidence. They wouldn’t bring any. These made stories often go and pop up in New York or Geneva. And those who collected those data are always non-existent. The methods they used to arrive at those data is also non-existent. But somehow, there are some>>>>

          of their gullible South Sudanese & others who just take these stories at face value. When in fact, many of the people who create these are just some desperadoes who just want to make a living out of desperate people & naive South Sudanese. I am not trying to project that no crime were created against some innocent South Sudanese civilians. But the some scrupulous NGOS with their sinister interests

            over our country & our people. Honestly speaking, there has never ever been a clean war on earth. The only way to avoid civilians atrocities is to ’avoid the war occurring’ in the first place. This is just a simple truth. If South Sudanese were to be more informed to find out what other crimes committed by the countries like the US, the UK, the gulf Arab states allies of Saudi Arabia & Israel>>>

Many South Sudanese people do not know what is called the ’politics of the NGOs’. A country of Malawi is the glaring example: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00mmn27

Many South Sudanese may agree with me that when the government of Mr. Salva Kiir wanted to rein in the NGOs’ powers a few years ago. The US, the UK, France, their UN and sleazy NGOs went berserk. And until Mr. Salva Kiir myopic government back down----that is what the NGOs often do with Malawian govt>
