‘Now Sudan has the CPA but we are still killing ourselves. Nothing has changed, nothing. In the villages, they don’t know peace. If we tell them that we have peace, they say “What peace now? The Nuer come to attack, and you say that we have peace. What peace?” It is much worse than before. What has changed is this killing of women and children. Whether young or old, all people are dying.’Almost 9 months following the attack on Likuangole on 8 March 2009, there are still skeletons scattered along the road near the airstrip in Likuangole.
