This is what they said:

“This morning Lual Akook, a son to Kiir shot dead three people because of land related issues. Lual has been torturing people all this long and people have failed to speak out and that’s why today we came out in big numbers protesting for justice” said Gak Geu

“Lual has been grabbing lands from local people here and he threatens to kill them if they talk, calling himself the son of the president Kiir. He has grabbed lands in this area especially in the Highland sub-residency area. Such acts cannot be allowed to happen many times. He must be brought to book” said Adeng Samuel – a female protestor

“This man has misused President Kiir powers. If you can see how he killed people this morning, including a woman because he quarreled with someone over land. Lual must be brought to book and held accountable to all his evil acts and protest must continue” said Deng Chol

“We don’t need a regime full of killers and corrupt officers. Kiir and his associates must go. We are tire of this nonsense” said Peter Deng Garang
