 Ref:      Our Concern and Response on the Current Luanyjang Inter-Clan Violence:

 We the Luany-jang community members in Victoria, Australia convened a meeting on September 8th 2014 so as to raise our voices in condemning the inter-clan based feud within Luany-jang itself that led to the loss of dozens of lives.

 

The perpetrators of this heinous crime are lending credibility to the advocates of violence that grievances are to be solved through violence and we consider this act as a betrayal to the current quest for peace in our country. This self-betrayal by Luany-jang sub-clans’, could obviously make the enemies of peace within and outside the community happier and further attempt to destabilise the community harmony. Our people in Tonj East County should know that their violent actions are not only wasting their own human and material resources, but are also wasting their government’s resources that should have been put to better use in delivering services to them.

 

We the Luany-jang citizens in diaspora don’t belong to any of the Luany-jang’s sub-clans, we better belong to; Luany-jang, Tonj, Warrap, Bhar El Gazal and to South Sudan if there is any justification for such groupings. In our opinion, we should only identify ourselves as South Sudanese. We therefore demand that these unfortunate behaviours be urgently corrected through the following ways:

 1.     The ceasing of all hostilities, attacks, counter attacks and lynching of individuals.

2.     Chiefs, elders and youth leaders must cooperate with government authorities in apprehending the culprits.

3.     They must without any perjury assist the law enforcement agencies in serving justice and

4.     Initiate peace and reconciliation to restore calm and social cohesion within the Luanyjang community and with neighbouring communities in order to contribute to peace and development.

 

The following undersigned members attended the emergency meeting on behalf of all Luanyjang in Australia.
