“Protect your land,” Commissioner tells Juba residents

By Charles K Mark


Juba County Commissioner urges residents to develop and protect their land.

Emmanuel Tete Ezbon was speaking during a memorial event of 2022 murder incident, at Lokiliri Payam.

The commissioner appealed for solidarity among community members in guarding and protecting the environment, especially the land and its features.

He noted the importance of trees while lamented the negative impact of random cutting and forest destruction on the environment.

“Live in unity and love. Development and rehabilitation cannot occur in seclusion,” the commissioner urged.

On the occasion, the commissioner consoled those who lost their beloved ones during the land struggle, to place God at heart for strength and healing.

Meanwhile, the director of Lokiliri Payam, Juma Katanga, described land grabbing that led to killing of the people, as a horrible and inhuman.

“Such practices make communities lose energetic and able-bodied men from communities that would develop the country,” he stated.

Katanga expressed that as residents lose their beloved sons during their duties in protecting what belonged to them, there should be hope to bring love.

Central Equatoria State and Juba County authorities joined the Lokiliri community, on Friday for the memorial prayer of the eight people killed in 2022 land-related scuffle.
