NAS condemns barbaric murder of 3 children in Juba
The National Salvation Front (NAS) has condemned the barbaric killing of three (3) young children on August 1 2020 in Juba and has assured the people of South Sudan that the day will come when these ongoing relentless killings and crimes in the country under Salva Kiir’s watch will stop and justice will prevail.
The condemnation was made in a press release issued today August 03 by Suba Samuel, NAS Spokesperson.
The statement also expressed condolences and sympathy from the NAS leadership and its members to the parents of the children (Mr Edward Andrew Jami and Ms Gilda Gideon), relatives, friends and all the people of South Sudan on this inconceivable act.
According to reports, on August 1, 2020, at around 4 pm local time, the three (3) children Naomi (9) years old; Blessing Seven (7) years; and Nor Edward Jami Four (4) years were briefly left alone at home when their mother went to a nearby health clinic to get an injection. Upon her returned, she found the lifeless bodies of her 3 children who were slaughtered.
“The savagery killing of the three (3) children epitomizes the highest moral decadence and serious state of anarchy that South Sudan has degenerated into,” read NAS’ statement in part.
Over the past few years and under Salva Kirr’s watch, the security situation all over the country has been slowly but surely turning into a state of total anarchy with scores of relentless killings and crimes that mostly remain unsolved.
“The regime of President Salva Kiir fosters an environment in which individuals and groups of people feel free to take law into their own hands with impunity.
“In fact, the government all along has been sponsoring state crimes against the people of South Sudan in the form of ‘Unknown Gunmen’’. The recent assassination of Prosecutor General of Upper Nile State Mr Thomas Aban Akol Ajawin is an example of this type of crimes,” the statement pointed out.
No arrests have yet been made three days into the murder to the 3 young.
“May God rest the innocent souls of the three (3) children in eternal peace and may He comfort the family of Mr. Jami at this difficult time,” the statement ended.
