May 25, 2010 (SSNA) — Every human being is grieved by the lost of their loved ones especially when it occurs in tragedy atmosphere like what happened to the chief Peter Oyath Odhok. According to close source these bandits who killed the chief cannot be alleged to any party, for they were reacted out bitterness for what chief has done to their community in recent days. The chief was on his way to Malakal to bring home those who were accused of having illegal arms, where he was ambushed by those bandits.
In recent unofficial disarmament made by SPLA forces in Collo Kingdom Oyath was alleged to be behind these activities. Many members of Panyikango communities were upset and anger with him, because their young ladies and wives were raped by SPLA soldiers before their eyes, especially people who are accused by chief suffered terrible consequences. Not only that their kids were forced to testified falsely against their fathers of having illegal arms by burning candles on their back, the wounds at the back of the children are true witness to what Oyath did to his own people.
Sadly, those ladies and women who were raped by SPLA soldiers are traumatized by ugly and crucial action, some of those soldiers may be HIV carriers, and they had already disseminated the virus into lives of many community members, in years to come majority of people will be wipe out by this killing disease as result of orchestrate plan made by the chief in collaboration with SPLA soldiers in the area. Leave alone the humiliation and abuses the children received. These bad images gave signal that SPLA soldiers are brutal arms used to terrorize people instead of protecting people.
Sincerely speaking I tried to interview some people to find out the motive behind this brutal killing, the responses were that Oyath deserved that kind of death and those who died together with him were regard as traitors also. Many people reiterated that they are ready to eliminate the traitors who associated themselves with enemy of Collo land. Those who support well destructive plan in Collo land will receive the same fate of paramount chief, for nobody who is immune of death, whatever their position.
