Pupils and students of various Secondary and Primary Schools in Rumbek marched in the street, asking the government to disarm the civil population possessing illegal firearms and weapons.
 
The demonstration was under the theme “Say no to gun violence, it kills indiscriminately,’’ Radio Good News reports.
 
The learners express frustrations over road ambushes and rampant attacks on farmers forcing them to abandon cultivation.
 
The students raised their concerns that schools in the villages are also closed down because of insecurity caused by the presence of illegal arms.
 
In June this year, Safer World in partnership with CEPO launched a project on the awareness of the dangers of small arms and light weapons in Rumbek.
 
Isaac Majier Majok, CEPO Lakes State Coordinator says the organizations have established drama groups in schools and community Action Groups to educate people on the risks of weapons in their hands.
 
State Minister of Education Dut Makoi Kuok urges the national and the state government in disarming the civil population.
 
He says guns are dangerous so people should say no to them.
