"We will work tirelessly to make this criminal pay dearly for this heinous crime," he further pledged before to say that he directed "law enforcement agencies to use every tool in their disposal towards expeditious apprehension and trial of the suspect(s) in this unjustifiable murder".

The president further called on the South Sudanese to cooperate with the police and support the investigation and to pass any information they know about this heinous crime.

    This is absolutely a horrible situation and I have said few days ago that, the tribes who dose such a terrible thing are Nuers people and the Murle people. On April 2014, the Nuers people attacked Twic Mayardit county killing 9 women and by cutting stomachs of 9 women similarly to this horrific incident in Juba.

          What judgement do you want?. I am telling you the truth about what the Nuers people did all the time and there’s no any tribe does such horrific events. In 2014, the SPLA I0 forces captured Bentiu town, 200 Darfurians business people were killed even when they were inside Church, 400 Dinka civilians in Bentiu town were killed in the Church, 200 Students learning at Upper Nil

            Never rely on hearsaying because any one can lie but too prove it, it’s what’s prevent majority people’s not to go that route!! Were you there??

        There will never be peace in South Sudan,until I see criminals both in J1 and in the streets either hanged or severely punished.If those worthless leaders don’t get pushed out of the gov’t/leadership, nothing will change in this country!What we’ve witnessed in Rock City is extremely disturbing,graphic and gruesome for any human being to bear...May God rest the souls of those children in PEACE!!!

    • 4 August 2020 13:33, by Games

      You forgot to mention those Dinka were wiped out in Nassir, Waat, Akobo, Ayod, Malakal, Bor etc in 2013 to early 2014.. You will witness deaths of Dinka from Nuer hands to many years to come

      Mayendit! What is a connection of Central Equatoria, Juba city problem to Nuer people and people killed in Twic ? Absolutely let us all be frank to tell the truth. Both children killed in cold blood in Juba are actually killed for no reasoned. If God is God let Him it out the killer among those arrested in Juba prison. Amen

    If you have the slightest desire to lead this country one day, you must learn how to effectively frame your statements my brother! Despite all debates, all our ethnic groups are capable of doing this crime as is written "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" Rm 3:23

      I think you haven’t seen what happened in Twic Mayardit county, Bentiu town, Nassir county and event of Riek Machar Teny when he invaded Paangroor county 1993. Our ethic are not equally capable of killing women by cutting their stomachs and then, cuts the unborn babies of 9 nine women. Yes, the criminals cases are different but to lead on finding the most criminal thus, you must use

  • 4 August 2020 07:25, by Angelo Achuil

    We must learn to condemn to separate the criminal from the whole tribe. If not so, people will finish and let’s forget ever having peaceful and prosperous country.

    • 4 August 2020 08:09, by South South

      This is too bad. I hope our police can find the criminals and arrest them. Let NAS stay away from this. NAS has done similar things like this in Yei-Juba road. I feel sorry for the 3 children. Someone who done this knows these children.

      • 4 August 2020 10:08, by The Rhino

        South South,

        Go fuck yourself you disgusting vagrant!Your worthless Dinka uncles created that rotten environment of savagery and anarchy.What do you expect from such a stinking sewage like Juba littered up with thugs, thieves,unknown gunmen,murderers and rapist from Bahr El Gazal,Upper Nile and around the world?The insecurity and chaos in Juba and across the country goes squarely on Kiir!!!

        • 4 August 2020 12:30, by South South

          The Rhino,

          You monkey MUST shut up your dirty mouth and listen to your leaders like me. I feel so bad about innocent children. Everyone should wait and give investigation room to find out who did this dirty crime, putting that aside, let’s exam these facts.
          1- Mother of the children is KoKU tribe
          2- Father of the children is Kouakua tribe
          3- They are separated.

          • 4 August 2020 12:35, by South South

            The Rhino,

            4- The man has another lover who has no children.
            There is a big tension among these tribes
            For some reason known by dirty people like, you are very quick to drag our good names into this incident. Monkey, try to find something to talk about, wicked.

      You have to use some experience and the way to solve such inhuman thinking is to talks about it. In Jonglei State, women and children are being abducted most of the time and it is done by Murle people. If we don’t talk about it then, it will go on for centuries. You have heard about 3 from Nuers people were killed in refugees camps in Uganda by Kuku people and who knows maybe the Nu

    Here is what the president need to do for the case of 3 children. The first thing is to pay for DNA testing. Second, investigation must continue in trying to know the family, the professor that was reported missing in case if there will be a correlations between missing professor and the killing of children of assistant professor. Also the father of these latest 3 children need to be investigated

    • 4 August 2020 15:42, by Mayendit

      You said, the death on Dinka will continue what your people?. Do you think Dinkas will fear whatsoever?. Now your people are taking refugees within the country and the government told them to go back homes then, they refusing saying, their homes are not safer for them. Most if not all of them are begging for peace now. Take this message, if you against majority then, you will have no good
