Peter Mayen’s call comes days after social media was awash with a video
link showing six people, allegedly members of Dinka ethnic tribe,
mercilessly being slaughtered by armed youth in Wonduruba area located
along Yei-Juba road.
"All communities must values human lives and work to enhance harmony and
peaceful co-existence among community members,” said Mayen.
"We stand against all inhuman treatment to all south Sudanese regardless of
their tribe, regions and political affiliation,” he added.
According to the official, it is the responsibility of government and its
people to end hostilities.
The outspoken opposition politician also blamed those in the coalition
government of allegedly promoting tribalism in the country, saying innocent
citizens were the ones paying the price.
Mayen hails from President Salva Kiir’s home area of Gogrial in Warrap
state. Last year, the opposition party leader pressured government into
relocating Dinka cattle keepers from Equatoria region, claiming they
instigate insecurity and tribal clashes.
