Violence soon emerged in 2013 when presidential soldiers instantly broke out on nationality and cultures. Soldiers from the Dinka ethnic group sided with the government, President Kiir, and the Nuer ethnic group, supported Riek Machar as rebel soldiers. Throughout fighting and constant riots, President Kiir announced that Marchar had attempted to seize power from the government, causing violence to spread to the Upper Nile.
