At least one person was killed, and several cattle were stolen during a raid over the weekend at Uror County of Jonglei state.

This is according to a community leader who is also a former commissioner of Uror County, Tang Chatim.

He says the incident occurred on Sunday morning.

Chatim pointed out that the attackers reportedly drove away more than 50 heads of cattle.

He spoke to Eye Radio in an exclusive interview this morning.

“The attackers attacked an area called Juet, they raided cattle and killed one person, they also took several cattle. The youth tried to follow them but failed to recover the cattle, so this is the security situation in Uror County now,”  Chatim told Eye Radio on Monday.

Over the past years, Jonglei state has experienced endless waves of communal violence among four communities there.

The violence is frequently characterized by road ambushes, cattle raids, child abductions and other forms of revenge-inducing crimes.

Early last year, Vice President James Wani Igga initiated a people-to-people peace conference in the Greater Jonglei region to address the root causes of communal violence.

The conference held in Jonglei and Greater Pibor resolved to end the circle of violence related to cattle raids, revenge attacks, and child abductions.

However, such incidents have continued to occur.
