Governor Juma Ali Malou of newly curved Terekeka State from Defunct Central Equatoria last week issued an order to Mundari cattle Herders in Jubek State to evacuate their cattle back to their respective areas. Malou said the move is to restore peace between cattle herder and farmers and to allow farmers to cultivate their farms without interference from pastoralists.
This came after several clashes between farmers and nomads, trading accusation of animals causing insecurity in the area.
According to information seen yesterday by The Nation Mirror, governor Malou said the move is aimed at mitigating conflict between cattle keepers and farming communities. “I ordered all Mundari cattle keepers to return to the state immediately,” read the order.
The order stated that all the cattle camps currently based in the neighboring states mainly Jubek, must be relocated to Terekeka.
“All the heads of organized forces in Terekeka should assist and respond positively in case they’re officially requested by any county commissioner to help where necessary,” the orders added.
The governor asked all the county commissioners to implement the order with immediate effect so that all farmers who were in fear of cattle can plough. He appealed to farmers to start preparing their farms for next lean season.
