The KajoKeji Community Organization has called for investigations into
the killings of civilians along major highways into and out of Juba.

They describe the attacks as unacceptable crimes against humanity.

Over the last few weeks, many people have been killed on the roads
linking Juba to Nimule, Yei, KajoKeji and Torit.

Last weekend, 21 passengers were killed in an attack along the Yei- Juba road.

In another incident, 12 people were killed and four others injured,
including the commissioner of Lafon County, along the Torit – Lafon
road in Imatong state.

The KajoKeji Community Organization says these attacks have made it
difficult for civilians to move freely and have increased the
suffering of women and children.

In a press statement signed by the chairman, Aggrey Tisa Sabuni, who
is also the Presidential Advisor on Economic Affairs, the organization
sent condolences to the communities from where the fallen victims come

It calls on the Transitional Government of National Unity to
investigate these killings neutrally and as quickly as possible so
that those who are responsible can be arrested and brought to the

The organization urged the Transitional Legislature to use its
political and moral authority to exert pressure on the TGONU to play
an active role in criminal investigation of this carnage.

It also urges the government to promote a peaceful and just solution
of South Sudanese question of insecurity once and for all.

The statement comes days after the Minister of Information warns
communities to distance themselves from attacks on the highways.
