The Governor of Imatong State, Hon. Tobiolo Alberio Oromo has ordered cattle keepers from Jonglei State to start returning their huge number of animals currently occupying Magwi and Pageri Counties in his State.

TORIT, 14 December 2017 [Gurtong] –
Speaking on Wednesday, during a rally held at Torit Freedom Square, the Governor said that he was implementing the presidential order issued earlier this year ordering all cattle keepers to leave the area as their cattle are posing a threat to farms.

The Governor had just returned from Juba after his mission to Pageri where he spent nearly more than two weeks talking to cattle keepers and a few host community members present in Pageri.

Pageri, being a home to Ma'di people, has been deserted and occupied by cattle herders from Jonglei leaving the host community of Ma'di to complain of displacement and destruction of farms.

The Ma'di community has been tabling complaints to the office of the Imatong State authority seeking for possible return of what they term as destruction of their livelihoods and threats to lives leading to their displacements.
