“Since last week, over 40 youth have been arrested and those with dreadlock are forced to shave while girls found in town wearing trousers are forces to burn them, ” source in Bor said.
the move has received critism from many the youth in the state.
“Jonglei state government should deal with the issue of Murle & poverty and leave poor youth alone. Will banning of dreadlocks, wearing of skinny clothes and women trousers stop cattle rustling, poverty and children abduction?! What a cowardice move…Fucken!” a concern youth posted on social media
