Rumbek: 9 People Killed In Inter-Clan Clashes

The clashes according to sources erupted over an argument between men rivalling for a girl.

Marik Nanga Marik, the MP representing Rumbek north confirmed: “Yes, it is true nine people from both sides of Manuer and Gaak have died during the clashes of those two clans. It is very regrettable.”

Nanga said traditional leaders had to intervene to stop the clashes. Inter-clan clashes are common in Lakes State and most of which have been retaliatory in nature.

Lakes state government did not issue any official statement on the incidence at press time. Nevertheless, traditional leaders of the two clans are trying to resolve the conflict.
