    LOU COMMUNITY PEACE COUNCIL

    Date 2/01/09

    PRESS RELEASE

    MURLE ARMED MILITIA ATTACKED LOU NUER VILLAGES KILLING 28 PEOPLE
    WOUNDING MANY OTHERS AND STEALING 5,600 CATTLE

    1. On January 28th and 30th, armed Murle Militia launched three
    consecutive armed raids against Lou Nuer villages of Nyan-ngic, Pieri
    and Tiam in Jonglei State. Thirty (30) people were killed, many more
    wounded and 5,600 cattle stolen by the attackers who were in full
    military uniform.

    2. Prior to these raids, in December 2008, the Murle had attacked two
    villages of Akobo County killing four (4) people and stealing 400
    herds of cattle. This happened even at the time when the Vice
    President of the Government of Southern Sudan H.E Dr. Riek Machar,
    together with Presidential Peace Advisor Major-General Ismail Konyi
    and the Speaker of Jonglei State Assembly Hon. Jude Jonglei were
    celebrating Christmas in Pibor, the administrative HQ of the Murle.

    3. In 2006, the Lou community was disarmed by the Government and lives
    and property were lost in the process. This happened in Uror and
    Nyirol Counties; while in Akobo County the citizens voluntarily handed
    in their guns to the SPLA in compliance with GoSS policy. Disarmament
    of the civilian population was undertaken then as the only effective
    means of restoring peace and security of the people and their property
    in their state. It still remains the only viable means of ensuring
    security among the communities in the South.

    4. The Murle Community which is notorious for raiding and abduction of
    children and women of other communities in the state were not
    disarmed. They have therefore continued to be the primary cause of
    insecurity in Jonglei State. They are heavily armed in such a way that
    the SPLA forces in the state cannot dare to confront them!!

    5. Voluntary disarmament in the state has failed to guarantee security
    for the citizens of state. The only viable option now is mandatory
    disarmament of all the communities to be carried out by the SPLA as a
    general policy.

    6. If GoSS does not take steps to disarm the Murle, then the only
    option is for all the communities to acquire guns for their defence
    and of course there will be no need to have a state government anymore.

    OUR APPEAL TO GOSS AND THE STATE GOVERNMENT

    a. There should be mandatory disarmament of all Citizens in the State.
    This should start with the Murle who are committing atrocities against
    other communities and abducting children with utmost impunity.

    b. More SPLA forces should be deployed in the state to carry out
    mandatory disarmament of the civil population. If this is not done
    quickly Jonglei will certainly descend into total chaos.

    c. The SPLA Division 8 in the State lacks effective and committed
    command. There is need to deploy a more responsive and conscious
    command that can address the problem of insecurity.

    d. The Law enforcement agencies in state should be strengthened. The
    Police in the State needs training and armament.

    e. The presence of the Judiciary in State is very thin. There is need
    to post qualified judicial person to the different Counties of the State.

    f. Work on the two security roads in the State i.e. Bor – Pibor –
    Pochalla and Ayod – Waat – Akobo should be expedited and complete
    before the coming of the rainy season. This will help the movement of
    security forces in the State.

    g. All the children and women abducted and cattle looted should be
    accounted for by those involved.

    h. Provision of emergency food relief to Uror, Nyirol and Akobo
    Counties to rescue the people from imminent starvation as they have
    lost most of their cattle.

    This is exactly what we need from Lou Nuer community council's committee. Our people cannot be the victims while the country is expecting the peace. Dinka and Murle must be punished for their hostile attititudes against Lou Nuer. Otherwise, we the children of Lou Nuer must give influence to our people that will have the worst repercussion against Dinka/Duk and Murle.

    Reat, job is well done. It is good to alert our people about what is happing from any corner around the globe.

    Once again, keep informing us, brother.

    God be with you all

    Yes, I support that because it is impossible for some tribes in South Sudan to keep their guns while others' guns were disarmed since 2006. Alas, what an irrational action that the government of South Sudan does!
    That's not good at all.

    to all,
    I think we have to rethink for our lou land now than it used to be.now a day, we are facing too many front.First, we have Dinka, second we have murle,and third we have a government that move us from where we have been living for years to the main land lounuer.what are all these things indicated to us? I think these things indicated to us that we will be in danger if we don't have a plan in place or if we don't have one voice.what do you Guys think about this.

    thankd
