South Sudan militiamen kill 15 people, abduct 6 women, 3 kids: SPLM-IO


March 18, 2019 (JUBA) - The SPLM/A-IO on Monday accused pro-government militiamen in Wau State of killing 15 civilians and kidnapping six women and three children and called to investigate the criminal assault.

In a statement extended to Sudan Tribune, the SPLM-IO Director for Information and Public Relations Puok Both Baluang said the attack took place on Saturday in Dang Achan Village and in a camp of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Maranyi of Wau State.

"The SPLM/A (IO) condemns in the strongest terms possible the heinous attack by pro-Government forces dressed as civilians, on civilians in Dang Achan Village near Mapel at about 5:00 am on Saturday, March 16, 2019, results in 15 civilians killed, 21 injured, 13 children kidnapped and 6 females were abducted," said Baluang.

He added that similar attack occurred on Maranyi IDPs camp of Kwajina County, Wau State on Sunday, March 17, 2019, which claimed approximately 15 civilians lives and 20 injured.

Last week, during a visit to Wau which is known its ethnic diversity President Salva Kiir called for peaceful coexistence between the different communities.

Kiir further warned people against revenge attacks, stressing that nobody has to take the law into his hands.

Baluang extended the SPLM-IO’s condolences to the families of the victims and called to investigate "these acts of cowardice".

"We call upon CTSAMM and UNMISS and other relevant authorities to investigate these wanton attacks and prosecute those responsible promptly," he said.

    And that’s the reason THEY proposed in Kiir’s national dialogue that LAND MUST BELONG TO THE JCE REGIME....?!

    Watchout the Luo people of Jur River for you will face what the Bongo people, the indigenous of Tonj, faced! The jenge is a deadly "neighbour".....

      Watch out fool! Your hatred towards Jieeng people reached the melting point, when little lies happened on the corner of the country, you jumped higher like 🐸 disgusting the Jieeng name, this is unreasonable, if that’s the only closer ladder clim then let’s all not cry later or sooner!

      • 19 March 2019 04:51, by Kush Natives

        You and a like must start disconnecting Jieeng from the government, otherwise you’re deeply calling for unrest.

          this Dinka perpetual habits of instigating violence, purge on people and openly deny it, is indeed can’t be simply describe as barbaric and savage. Kush Natives How come Dinka purge on innocent Lou in their farms and you called it small lies. don’t those innocent lives matter to you? I except when their is a mistake, you should directly point it out if you are not bias.

            Kush Natives
            in contrary its about the Dinka hatred towards others, and its product is obvious on Lou. I have naver seen a farm going to cattle camp but the reverse is true. is This the peace you want to preach? is that what Kiir toured about? Dinka under this government want to freely purge on others with impunity and without being held accountable, otherwise, where on Earth, do such things happe

          Kush Natives,

          I quote..."You and like must..." Have you even thought for a SECOND that Eastern lives large and is beyond you and the like?! Even your own fellow jenge Dr. Luka Biong is in agreement that the regime in Juba is a JCE regime. Now which unrest are you talking about if the country is not already experiencing it?!

      • 19 March 2019 06:01, by Eastern

        Kush Natives,

        I wasn’t talking about your Jieeng or something; I was talking about some freaky folks called JENGE who are perpetually suffering from hubris syndrome. Now what’s your concern here?!

        • 19 March 2019 07:44, by South South

          I feel bad if there is killing of innocent people in those areas of Great Bhar Gazal, but we need to remember that our government has no militiamen in Bhar Gzal, our government has SPLA in Bhar Gazal. The person who reported this news from IO is not honest. This is could be a made up story from the enemies of the peace in South Sudan. We have seen how they rushed to pour out big lies immediately.

          • 19 March 2019 07:57, by South South

            Here is how Radio Tamazuj reported it:
            "Kwajina County Commissioner Barjuok Uchu told Radio Tamazuj that the attack on the area of Akuoya resulted in the killing of 9 people, including women and children. Uchu accused pastoralists from Tonj State"

            It is very clear our government has nothing to do with the killing, but very stupid people like Eastern are buying this bogus.

            • 19 March 2019 15:06, by Eastern

              ...I can as well RELEGATE you to the ranks and files of the Pakuais - I will soon do that.

                Mr. KARAMA, the word F is on the tip of your tongue again. Do you learn that in one of the KARAMA? Or did fake Arabs showed it to you when they were enjoying sleeping with Karo young men in Juba.

          You bunch of trolls are out of breath with reality it seems. Your so-called SPLM/A-IO are still the ones terrorizing innocent South Sudanese civilians and of course they are the same criminals who are quick to reach to SUDANTRIBUNE with accusations against the waging war against civilians>>>
