VP Taban urges Unity state to end violent clashes

The Vice President for Infrastructure Cluster Taban Deng on Wednesday called on the the people of Unity State to unite and shun violence following the recent executions of suspected killers of the Mayom County Commissioner. 

Deng revealed these remarks during meeting with President Salva Kiir in Juba where they particularly discussed the deteriorating security situation in Unity State. 

Four rebel fighters from the South Sudan People’s Movement/Army led by Gen. Buay Rolnyang  were last week executed by firing squad by the South Sudan national army (SSPDF) soldiers, sparking condemnation of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) and SSPDF top leadership.

Deng also informed President Kiir that civilians are leaving their homes in Unity state following displacement by recent flooding in the state.

In addition, both parties also discussed how to start implementing the recently extended transitional period to transition the country towards total peace and stability.
