MANYANG-NGOK- 06 March 2018 [Gurtong] -
The clashes between Twic and Kongoor communities left 24 dead and over 20 others injured in which some were taken to Wau hospital and others in Tonj town for treatment.

According to State officials, the conflict was triggered when youth from Twic raided some cattle from the grazing land of Kongoor in Jal-Wau County.

The State government intervened, and deployed security forces in the area to control the situation.
A disarmament order was issued last Thursday by the Governor, calling all armed civilians to handover their guns to the government within seven days.

“All the chiefs, community leaders and commissioners are directed to inform the armed civilians to lay down their guns or gather their guns under their chiefs and hand them over to the government,” said Manhiem Bol, the Deputy Governor.

He said those who fail to follow the order, will face “further action” from the government.
A peace conference will follow the disarmament process, according to Mr Bol.
