WAU, 04, April, 2019 [GURTONG] - The Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General to South Sudan David Shearer said the United Nation
Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) is concerned about the recent attacks by cattle keepers on the farmers in Wau State.

Mr Shearer said the United Nation is also calling on the two state governments of Tonj and Wau to hold accountable the perpetrators of killings, rapes and mass destruction on the local farmers.

The UNMISS boss said the UN will continue scaling up patrolling in most affected areas in Kwajina and Alur counties as part of their surveillance.

Shearer made this remark today in Wau town while addressing groups of civil society activities.

 “We also asked for accountability to those people who have lost their loved ones; there should be accountability and justice.

 
“On our part as United Nations, we will continue to follow the issue and also continue increasing patrols in Jur River areas so that we can see what is actually happening”, he concluded Shearer.

Last month, at least 15 people were reported killed while seven women, including two young girls, were raped in Kwajina County.
