“One person killed in Rumbek Center cattle raid incident”

A young man of 30 years was killed on Thursday night during a cattle raid organised by armed youth suspected to have come from Cuiebet County.
Maluak Abaka was shot dead while trying to rescue his cattle in Apet, Malek Payam of Rumbek Center.

There have been continued attacks and raids by youth from Cueibet and Rumbek North who have never been disarmed under the leadership of governor Rin Tueny Mabor.

Many people fear than the usual conflicts in Lakes state may resume during this dry season as youth from Rumbek Center, and Rumbek East counties feel provoked and may re-arm themselves after series of crimes orchastrated against them.


An eyewitness travelling along Rumbek-Maper road said many youth moved along the road today with heavy arms.

Lakes authorities are yet to comment on the incident.
