Is president Kiir encouraging more war in Jonglei or what exactly behind his rhetoric speeche of today?
The Jonglei and Pibor Adminstative Conference Ended in Juba without Resolution After President Kiir Spoilt it at the Last Minute:
While deliberately forgetting to mention the attack and the killing on Lou-Nuer and Bor Community by Murle last year, the President sided with Murle by saying the counter revenge attack that was carried-out to Murle by Lou-Nuer and Bor was designed here in Juba by blaming certain cliques, thus makes Murle in the conference hall stood up and chanting allulating behind president’s speech…
President challenged the vice president Dr. Wani Igga by saying: you have talked earlier of tribalism while when my 700 cows were here in Central Equatoria/Luri, your people/Bari community refused them/cows to stay here due to tribalism, after taking them to Warrap state, while over there in Tooch land for grazing, the Nuer came and almost raided them, in which forced me to take them to Wau for safety. Unfortunately, due to high level of flooding in the area, all of these cattles were dead.
He warned the warring parties in Jonglei and in Pibor Administrative area that this time around, if they fight again, I will watch and see who is going to defeat who, and it’s from there where I will intervene. But, for the one who would be defeated, I will never call you again as being a man but a woman. A statement that made everyone in the hall wondered whether the president is encouraging for more war in Jonglei or what exactly behind his rhetoric was unclear!
