A peace and reconciliation conference held in Terekeka in Central Equatoria State has resolved that all the cattle owned by members of the community must be returned to the county.

The commissioner of Terekeka says this move is to avoid conflicts between the Mundari and the neighbors.

The three-day conference held over the weekend was attended by representatives from the neighboring countries.

Jacob Gore told Eye Radio that cattle keepers will start moving their livestock to their home areas, starting this month.

“…. youth, women, chiefs, honorable members and our neighboring counties like the commissioner of Juba, including people who attended the conference said to have good relation with Mundari, all the cattle should be returned home,” said Mr Gore.

Gori said the county administration in Terekeka will drill water wells in the area to avoid conflicts over water points.
