October 28, 2014 (KAMPALA) – A victim of the Juba massacre has warned South Sudan’s warring parties to refrain from rushing a deal to unify the country’s rival factions without prosecuting the perpetrators of last December’s killings.

Last week, Tanzania’s ruling party invited the rival factions of South Sudan’s governing SPLM to the northern town of Arusha to iron out their differences ahead of final peace talks in Addis Ababa.

David Lieth was among 300 Nuer men rounded up by security forces between 17 and 19 December in Juba’s Gudele area.

October 26, 2014 (BOR) – Members of Twic East county in South Sudan’s Jonglei state are urging the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to urgently airdrop food in safe areas.

Chiefs representing the different Twic East communities made the call at a recent meeting with the county commissioner, Dau Akoi.

“The communities are in dire need of food now, not even tomorrow,” Akoi told Sudan Tribune on Sunday.

A recent meeting of aid agencies reportedly resolved that food be distributed in mid-November, drawing fury from the community.
