The state information minister, Benjamin Laat said the death of a trader allegedly killed by members of a neighboring community sparked off clashes.

The trader, identified as Majur Manguak was attacked and killed while on his way from Rumbek town to Rumbek North.

The motive of the killing, Laat said, remains unknown.

He, however, said calm had returned to the area after the state government deployed security officers to prevent further clashes.

Since South Sudan’s independence, cattle raids and revenge attacks have claimed several lives.

    All Lakes communities are sharing same attitudes of Nuers people and even they exposed some communities in Tonj East. The Lake regions has become a no go zone since the signing CPA and it is continuing like that. Agar Dinka communities and Gok community are the worst people in Dinkas. Agar Dinkas intellectuals and State governments must stop killings.

      Now you understand why Equatorians dont want such savagery and primitive attitudes at our doorsteps. Most of these jienges have fled to us and have found food, warmth and security. Soon we shall send them fleeing back to their shithole jiengestans where they can kill themselves in thousands. We just dont give a fuck. After all, their lives don´t matter at all.

          Did you ever protest when worthless and filthy uncircumcised jienges raped non-jienge women in Equatoria, Colloland, Nuerland, Fertitland? NO. You jienges celebrated and sarcastically smiled. Know this, if you kill intelligent Equatorians who will lead and develop you? How will you crawl out of your primitive lives? We Equatorians have made you humans otherwise you would be like your cows

    What Idiot man. The Dinkas people are the most rich societies in Africa in term of livestock and earning farming. Ask some of your Eduatorian who have been gone there or ask others such as Kenyans and Ethiopian business people who are doing businesses in Dinkas regions and you will be stunning to listen to them. The Dinkas people are in Eduatoria regions because that was the place they li

    Continue: The Dinkas people are there in Eduatoria regions because that was the region which they liberated from Arabs and and they have all rights to lived anywhere in South Sudan. The Dinkas people in the SPLA and SPLM fought so hard to liberated most parts of South Sudan before CPA arrived. The Eastern Eduatoria regions, Central Eduatoria regions and Western Eduatoria regions were liberated wit

      Learn to spell "Equatoria" and NOT "Eduatoria", you jienge dummy. Who told you to use a computer instead of carrying a gun? It takes only 5 minutes to teach a jienge how to carry a gun and cause immense destruction, but it will take him 50 years to carry a pen and bring development", ya Aryan jienge. Shut up and go look after cows. Let intelligent Equatorians lead you "foolish majority".

        Please keep dreaming about Muony-jang people.

      Why are you blaming the Dinka Agar? The cause of the problem are not the Agar, it is your useless Kiir who armed the civilians and tell them to delete Nuer on earth and he did not consult God who create them.
