BOR, 17 December 2012 [Gurtong] –
 Monybuny said Jonglei has been volatile with no entertainment at the counties and there is need for musician to take peace messages to the people.

The musicians have organised for a peace concert on 26 December to disseminate peace message to revellers.

“The new county commissioner is working well with the people of Pigi, it is a first time for the people of Paweny, Ruot and Thoi to come together and believe in one leader. People where leaving at tribal section in the county and that why county name were changing time to time,” Monybuny said.

Monybuny has composed many songs about peace and development and encouraging citizens to stay as one.

He told the people of Jonglei to turn up for Christmas concert with no worries of insecurity since the security will be tight at the counties.

 Pigi County Commissioner, Abel Michak in November confirmed that the team has been on site doing the survey work.

He said the people are very happy for the construction of the new county headquarters as Wunaruop was suggested last two years but due to insecurity, the people of were unable to move to the centre.

There has been no established headquarters since the signing of the Compressive Peace Agreement (CPA) in 2005.

Pigi County was called Khorfullus County but with some tension between the communities, the name was changed to be Pigi in 2010.

Wunaruop is between Cannel and Khorfullus and the land is strategic for agriculture due to its proximity to River Cannel Jonglei and River Sobath.

It is expected that the offices will be moved to the new headquarters in January 2013.

 The South Sudanese Dancehall Artist Ayii known by stage name Rappadox urges the people of Jonglei to be peaceful and enjoy the great show and entertainment full of spirit and power of music that night with no fight and to get the message from the raga artist and the home boys artists like Dan Jolying, Gun Jamus, Queen Zee, Peter Monybun and others.

“We are peace makers of the nation, we talk to the people through our songs and always the songs we compose have more meaning then the message passed to the communities by the chiefs,” he said.
