Summary

The International Organization for Migration’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) has identify 446 IDPs (174 Households) in Tambura Centre (Tambura County), Western Equatoria confirming recent reports of new displacement in the area.

The displacement is a result of communal clashes between cattle keepers from Tonj and farmers, which started at Warbet village in Kuarjena Payam of Jur River County on 4 March 2019. A second incident between the same communities started in April 2019, further affecting villages in Kuarjena and Rocrocdong payams including Achana, Akot, Awan, Nyaluel and Alur. The population initially fled into Wau, Rocrocdong and the bush around Kuarjena. Some of those in the bush decided to journey on foot to Tambura when conditions became unbearable.
