Misseriya forms alternative government for Abyei

December 04, 2010 (KHARTOUM) – Chieftains of Al-Misseriya tribe has established an alternative government to supplant the current administration of the oil-producing area of Abyei, Al-Sahafah daily newspaper reported on Thursday.

Abyei is a contested area of oil-production and tribal overlapping between the indigenous south Sudanese group of Dinka Njok and the Arab nomadic tribe of Al-Misiryyah.

The area remains a major point of dispute in the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) which in 2005 ended decades of civil war between north and south Sudan.

The CPA accorded the area a special status under the Abyei Protocol and promised a referendum vote in January 2011 to determine whether it should remain in north Sudan or join the south should it decide to secede in another referendum due to be held simultaneously.

Whereas preparations for south Sudan referendum on independence have proceeded haltingly amid great logistical difficulties to meet the 9 January date, the referendum in Abyei is unlikely to happen on time if at all.

The reason is a deadlock on whether members of Al-Misiryyah, which is associated with north Sudan, should be eligible vote in the plebiscite.

Al-Misseriya is a group of cattle-herding nomads who have traditionally crossed the borders into Abyei area for nearly nine months a year to graze their cattle. The governing National Congress Party (NCP) in north Sudan wants Al-Misseriya to vote in the referendum whereas the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) of South Sudan insists that only Dinka Ngok are eligible to vote.

The new government, which has been scheduled to assume its responsibilities as of 25 December, is composed of 10 ministers. Members of the new government were selected at a meeting held on December 02 in northern Abyei.

The meeting selected Abdul Rahman Bikhtal to head the new government and Tariq Omer Shafiqah as deputy governor.

The move comes in response to an announcement by members of Dinka Ngok tribe last week that they would organize their own referendum if the NCP and the SPLM failed to break the deadlock over Abyei vote.

Tariq Omer, the deputy chairman of the new government, told Al-Sahafah that the step was a response to threats by activists of the Denka Ngok tribe

Disagreements between north and south Sudan over the area’s boundaries led the two sides to resort to the Hague-based Permanent Court of Arbitration which ruled to re-define the area’s boundaries.

The ruling ceded key oil key oilfields to north Sudan but gave the South most of the land including Abyei town which has huge areas of fertile land and one significant oilfield.

The SPLM has interpreted the ruling as meaning that Al-Misseriya have no right to vote in areas assigned by the PCA to the Dinka Ngok

    That would be responsibility for Abyei people that bone in that land to rise up the issue and get support from Great dinka tribe first and then south government as whole. As Misseriya doing and get support from north government. But if Dinka Ngok are so quiet the south will determine only it referendum and get Abyei back after when it become a nation. Dinka Ngok Deng Koul ....Misseriya got the same blood as you are, that will be shameful for black Sudanese that try to scare with Arab tribe. We are behind you. So you want to established an alternative government to supplant the current administration of the oil-producing area of Abyei too.

      Hi! Misseriya,

      It’s "Amok yi thor ku bolong yiroth." Abyei is 100% for Dinka. You will try all the best to enter it but it is too late. We shall see after the separation of the country. You are soon to regret why you decided to annoy Dinka-Ngok in their indigenous soil.
      Mr Bashir and his subordinates are astraying you to wrong future.

    To avoid the war, lets give Abyei people dual citizenship.
    Dinka Ngok and Misseriya can move anywhere in both north and south sudan.

      Omoni
      If you read Omer El Basher’s comment on his Thursday speech about Masseriya you should not come up with such a helpless comment. To assure you on his speech, he said that the Masseriya should not be treated as second citizen in their land if Dinka of Abyei wants to choose unilateral as warning. Omoni if you want Abyei to have dual citizenship from north-south that is a criminology you better do it yourselves.

      Omini Atari, you must be out of your mind just like stupid Humar Hassan Al Bashir and their frequent used Bagaras. Can you ask a man to share wife with another man because the other man loves the other man’s wife?
      And do you expect the wife’s husband will say yes, I can share my wife with that man? He’ll no, even you will not accept that if you are man of sound mind.

      I, do not know if you know how many wars Dinka Ngok fought with Miseriah and Rezagats. Well, as from Twic and a neighbor of Dinka Ngok, we know very well Bagaras come to Abyie for grazing and are not by any means citizens of Abyie and the bullshits they are talking about is to say let Fulani Umboro, another West African nomads who roam South Sudan for their cattle grazing to vote and have a say in Southern referendum.

      What a stupid idea so far?

          Dear, Mr. Omini, I did not say you are stupid but I meant the idea of giving the Miseriah monarch citizenship in Southern Sudan. I have no doubt you are educated and I have no doubt that know that National Criminal Party and their Miseriah gangsters want grab Abyie the oil as well as grazing ground but we should not give in for fulse demands.

          I am sorry if you think I was calling you stupid but no doubt you agree with me to give that term to Humar (AKA Omar) Hassan Al Bashir and his Bagara brothers.

    Miseriah have no say in Abyie and they know that very well. This stupid nomads that have been used by Northern Sudanese governments are disparate just like the Northern Sudan government. They are dreaming of grabbing any peice of land from Southern Sudan before the independence but for sure, they are asking for trouble.

    Miseriah have no say in Abyie and will never have no any say in Abyie. Abyie had always been a 100 percent Dinka Ngok land and is a 100 percent Dinka Ngok land and will a100 percent Dinka Ngok’s land, no bullshits Bagara.

    Dear readers

    Please be mindful of misleading articles about Abeyi on this website, they always stipulate that the SPLM want only the Dinka Ngok to vote in the Abeyi referendum, this is not the whole truth.

    The CPA clearly states that Abeyi’s Dinka Ngok as well as other permenant residents of the area since 1956 are allowed to vote irrespective of their tribe that includes all Sudanese, however, the nomadic Misseriyah tribe are not permenant residents of Abeyi, so according to the CPA they are not allowed to vote. The SPLM do not object to northerners voting in Abeyi as long as they meet the voting criteria which the Misseriyah do not meet.

    The NCP are only using this tribe as a bargaining chip to serve their own interest, although the Misseriyah are guilty of crimes against southerners during the war but they too are pawns in this chess game of politics and power.

      Southerners this time the reaction is beyond what to said, by GOSS leaders; the north leaders have trying to do things as joke in which the GOSS leaders will run outstandingly and declaring the war. But let us not trying to blame those (GOSS Leaders) because this is a critical times that need our ideas and strategies to encourage them; make sure that the secession of referendum will not stopped us falling into war with Arab north as it has been predicted that the war will determine in Khartoum until the blood will flows in to river like water. But be aware that you will rise up your flag separately as a nation and no need to talk about Abyei as it will come back to South without any question.

      Remember that we lives in South Sudan from 1956 with out
      getting any support from government of Sudan , no health, education, roads, building, business, etc even our second capital city Juba was very poorer then any village in north sudan.

      During the war north government has been cut off some of South Sudanese women’s breast and damaged the men’s organ part not to produces kids any more; the same things has been happened to Blue Nile, Nubian and Darfurian people too. Omer el Bashir; ‘yes ‘we know your position and make sure that you will pay the prices soon as possible

    The misseriyah need not look far in order to see there own fate. The eyes of this tribe need to look westward in order to see what will happen to them when they start asking questions and behaving in away in which the northern government does not approve or like. The situations in Sudan and Africa are easily solved when u minus outside influences and sources of the inbred homegrown hate.
