Speaking to Gurtong from Alur County headquarters of Mapel, the Commissioner said the civilians have been arriving in Mapel town from the nearest Chono Payam southwest of the County.

Dimo Kon said though the situation in Mapel town is quite calm, reason why people are fleeing in to the town for safe protection.

“On 23rd, there was a clash between the citizens with those of IO in an area called Kuno, Payam called Chon. Our communities are fleeing out and now they have arrived in the centre headquarters of the County of Mapel,” said Kon.

On September 12, the South Sudan rebel leader signed a peace agreement with the government aimed at ending a civil war, which has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions.
