Atiaba school resumes operations
By Mabor Riak Magok
Hope and Resurrection Secondary School in Atiaba of Western Lakes State has reopened after two months of closure due to the killing of two Ugandan teachers.
In an interview with Juba Monitor, Deborah Awut Mayom Agok the school’s Administrator said the school delayed reopening after the two Ugandan teachers were killed.
“We sent other teachers back home with their brothers to bereave with families for one month away. The teachers reported and we reopened the school on the 10th of July 2019,”said Awut.
She said the school administration and community members handled the tension to allow the return of the other Ugandan teachers who had gone to mourn with their deceased colleagues.
She denied that the two teachers were targeted during the incident, saying it was “unintended.”
Awut called on the state government in Western Lakes State to apprehend the suspects in the murder of the two Ugandan teachers.
“We heard that the state government has arrested the relative of the suspects who killed the teachers and no real suspect has been apprehended. This is shameful on the part of the government,” Awut said.
She said one of the suspects caught by the authority escaped leaving guns in the hands of the security organs.
