Lobong was speaking at a public rally in Napak Boma of Budi County on Monday as he wound up is five days mission in the area. He called for immediate end to the ongoing senseless hostilities between the two communities.

The Governor sent message of condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in the senseless cattle raid in Kapoeta North County two weeks ago.

The locals on their part blamed the government for not taking quick interventions to defuse conflict among communities.

A chief of Napak Boma appealed to the Governor to initiate dialogue among communities in the Greater Kapoeta region, which is prone to cattle raiding.

Buya appealed to governor Lobong to help restore peace among communities, by initiating peace dialogue.

Area Member of Parliament Hon. Angelo Lomoi urged the State Government to name and shame politicians who are said to be engaging in the act of instigating conflict among communities.

This, he said would enable law enforcement units to apprehend perpetrators.

The Head of UNMISS Field Office in Eastern Equatoria Caroline Waudo, said the UN is committed to supporting peace efforts in the State.

The Governor has been touring the counties in Greater Kapoeta region to spread the message of peace, forgiveness and reconciliation.
