EES gov’t assked to address Camp 15 menace

The Civil Society Organization Network in Eastern Equatoria State has condemned the seemingly unending attack on travelers along the Kapoeta-Torit Road.

“We, as a civil society, are very concerned about the safety of our people in particular the issue of insecurity along Torit Kapoeta highway,” said Charles Onen, chairperson.

Three months ago, a foiled cattle raid in which raiders lost a colleague escalated into an intercommunal conflict between Kapoeta South and Budi communities.

Since then, there have been reports of attacks along the road, with about 30 deaths and a dozen injuries so far.

The latest incident last week when three travelers were killed, and 9 others injured at Camp 15.

“Government should deployed forces along camp-15 which is the hotspot area this month,” he added.
