Leaders of the Greater Yei convened an emergency meeting with Central Equatoria State governor to seek ways of curbing threatening insecurities in the area.

The commissioners of Yei River County, Aggrey Cyrus Kanyikwa, and Lainya County’s Emmanuel Khamis Richard, and the Security Coordinator of Yei, Juma David Augustine, met Adil on Thursday

This meeting aimed to tighten security, followed a suspected subversive activities of National Salvation Front (NAS) forces under Gen. Thomas Cirilo.

In previous weeks, the alleged rebels launched series of attacks against travelers on the major routes of Yei, where the bandits torched motorbikes and vehicles.

Yei River County Security Coordinator reiterated their commitment to accelerate significant influence within their line of jurisdiction to enhance peace and security stabilization in the area.

He believed that their efforts would yield positive prospects when in collaboration with security agencies.

“We are to call on our people that we alone cannot do it, but we need everybody to put their hands together in order for us to deliver the objective of ensuring peace and prosperity,” he said.

He also urged the civil population to continue being vigilant and cooperating with the security operatives by providing intelligent information.

However, the State Advisor on Human Rights, Jenifer Yabu, urged the leaders to work mutually while restoring sanity, instilling hope and confidence in the communities to accelerate return of those in neighboring countries to return.

“The issue of insecurity is a collective responsibility; it is not for individuals. If all of us work together, we will have peace in our areas,” he said.

“And we need to urge all the groups that didn’t sign the peace agreement to work for peace as the people of Central Equatoria,” Jenifer added.
