President Kiir to resolve Gogrial communal fight
President Salva Kiir Mayardit has promised to resolve the pro-long communal fighting in Gogrial state to resolve the matter.
He told the two communities of Apuok and Aguok in the meeting at J1 on Sunday that the dispute between Aguok and Apuok had taken long with little effort by the state government to resolve it.
Kiir promised to visit Touc, Apuok and Touc Lou to see the situation on the ground for himself.
The President did not mention when he would go to Gogrial state.
He said when you calculate the numbers of people who died in Apuok and Aguok since the start of the inter-communal fight in 1960s, they are too many and he did not understand why the two communities continued to fight each other.
“The two communities need to know that the current governor is not the first one in Gogrial,” “There have been others before and none has been able to solved the community fight.”
