The newly appointed Commissioner of Ulang county, Gen. Riek Gach Gatluak Kerjiok arrives on Thursday at the county headquarters with a call for unity, Ramciel has learned.
A massive crowd came out to welcome the new commissioner.
Several sources familiar with the commissioner’s thinking said the first task for the commissioner is to unite the people from the recent clashes that left several dead.
