‘Prepare for all-out war,’ Yau Yau warns Lou Nuer

(Thessherald)–The former Chief Administrator of the Greater Pibor Administrative Area, David Yau has been furious at the ongoing attacks carried out on his community by hundreds of armed men predominantly from the Lou Nuer and Dinka community and warned of all-out war if the violence is not contained.

“Obviously they [attackers] are being ordered to wipe the Murle off the face of the earth. But the Murle is united and strong, they will resist and fight in self-defense, and if this violence does not stop, it will eventually lead to all-out war and they should now prepare for it.”

David Yau Yau is the acting Chief Administrator of the Pibor Administrative Area.

He was also the head of the Murle rebel group that had been fighting the government until 2013.

The Murle and the Lou Nuer community have been engaged in a cycle of violence fueled by cattle raids and child abductions.

South Sudan has been mired in a deadly conflict, however, while the political violence has largely subsided following the signing of the peace agreement in September 2018, inter-communal clashes have persisted, killing the civilian population.


  • The war between Lou Nuer and murle it was happened before some of us was born, the murle tribe in South sudan are those who are refused to convinced the peace process in jonglei state itself, if they thought they were only south sudanese are stronger than others tribe. Let them do the things they want to do.
