More than 10 people have been reportedly murdered in one of the churches in Bor allegedly by rebels led by Riek Machar.
Ruben Akurdit de Ngong, the Bishop of Bor diocese said massive destruction committed by rebel factions in Bor is a crime against humanity which cannot be done by God’s lovers.
In Saint Cathedral, known as Leudier in Bor, at least 14 elderly women loyal to God have been murdered in cold blood, most of whom were workers of God who take care of church affairs in the ministry of God.
Deng Dau Deng, Member of Parliament representing greater Bor community in National assembly said they saw 14 dead bodies lying down in the Episcopal Church of South Sudan (ECS) compound.
Achol Ayom, the deputy chairman of AIDS/HIV Commission said: “I went to the church, the church has 14 dead bodies lying on the ground reported to have been killed by forces of Machar. So who can do that atrocity?”
“I didn’t know who to blame if handicaps are being killed in Bor, who on earth has a brain to do that? We need a lot to clear off not in the city alone but in our hearts and later see how this South Sudan will recover,” Achol told reporters at Juba airport on Tuesday upon arrival from Bor.
The members of parliament representing greater Bor in South Sudan national government told the media that more than 2,500 people died in Bor alone.
