Find and punish highway attackers, gov’t told

Author : | Published: Monday, October 17, 2016

The political party, the Democratic Change, has urged the government to take action on individuals found to be behind attacks on major highways into and out of Juba.

The party says if the perpetrators are found and made to account for “atrocities” committed, this would reduce tension.

There’ve been incidents of attacks by armed men along the roads linking Juba to Yei, Kajo Keji, Nimule, Torit and Kapoeta.

Last week, the government said a total of about 95 people have died on the major roads leading to Juba since August.

The Minister of Information, Michael Makuei Lueth, said the government was investigating the matter.

In a statement provided to journalists at the party headquarters in Juba this morning, the DC condemns these killings of civilians.

The DC is calling upon all stakeholders to the peace agreement to speed up the implementation of the agreement in order to reduce criminal acts.
