North and South Sudan disengage institutions to form two independent states

March 7, 2011 (JUBA) – The two governments of North and South Sudan have begun the process of disengaging national institutions to form two separate independent countries, following the overwhelming vote for independence by the people of South Sudan in January’s referendum.

The self-determination plebiscite, which was a core provision in the peace deal signed in 2005 between the Sudan government, led by the ruling National Congress Party (NCP), and the former rebels, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), has resulted to the split of Africa’s largest country into two independent states. The two parties fought a bitter civil war for 15 years of the 21 year civil war – the NCP came to power in a 1989 coup six years after the war began.

The region will formally become independent on July 9, 2011 according to the timetable set in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA). Since 2005 the South has governed itself with its own government led by the SPLM.

Officials from both North and South have acknowledged that South Sudan is already an independent state after the popular vote in January. July 9 is said to only mark the end of disengagement process of the two governments and witness the formal announcement of Africa’s 54th state.

Sudan’s president Omer Hassan Al-Bashir issued a presidential decree in February recognizing the independence vote of South Sudan and requested the leadership in Juba to avail a piece of land in the capital on which to build an embassy for the Khartoum government.

"South Sudan is already an independent state by the vote of the people,” South Sudan’s vice president Riek Machar said Saturday, who further explained that what had remained were mere formalities to July 9’s announcement of the new state.

Before July there are many issues that need to be resolved, most prominent of which is the contested border region of Abyei on the North-South border. The oil-producing region was supposed hold its own referendum in January to decide whether it would stay as part of Sorth Kordofan, north of the border, or join the South.

Abyei’s population predominantly consists of Dinka Ngok who are aligned the South. The Dinka are the largest ethnic group in the South and were expected to vote to join the South if the referendum had gone ahead.

However, the plebiscite did not take place as the SPLM refused the NCP’s demand to let the cattle herding Misseriya – an Arab tribe largely aligned the NCP - to take part in the vote. In the run up, during and after the referendum sporadic clashes in Abyei have left scores dead with tensions rising due to the failure of the referendum to materialize. Matters have been made worse as this is the time of year when seasonally the Misseriya enter the region to find water and pasture for their cattle.

In addition to the issue of Abyei, there are other post-referendum issues, which President Bashir refers to describe as post-independence issues, which the two parties have to hammer out. Most of Sudan’s known oil fields lie in the South but the pipelines, transport routes and refineries lie in the North so southern oil will continue to be exported through Port Sudan – at least until a new pipeline is built to Kenya.

The two parties to the CPA also have to finalize the North-South border; agree on a formula for sharing national assets and debt; water access; international treaties and agreements; and the future of the Sudanese Pound.

Initiating the disengagement process, Khartoum has already begun recalling SPLM and South Sudanese ambassadors who represent Sudan abroad saying that the presence has become irrelevant after the independence vote.
The Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) started in February to send its personnel to the South and North depending on their origin. A similar process is expected to occur for the civil service.

The Joint Integrated Units (JIUs), a military force set up by CPA from armies of the North and South, have also begun to disintegrate and rejoin their respective mother armies after a thorny relationship over the six years period of the peace deal. JIU’s were established to serve as a nucleus for a future national army of Sudan in the eventuality that the South voted to keep Sudan united.

Last month, Khartoum dismissed all the South Sudanese members of the Sudan’s legislative body, the National Assembly, saying they will no longer qualify to join the assembly when the parliament reopens, after recess, in April. Now the Southern representatives have left the parliament is in the almost total control of the NCP.

Machar, who chairs the government’s taskforce which is also charged with the responsibility to prepare the emerging independent state, held a series of meetings with government officials, representatives of the United Nations and international partners on the disengagement process on Saturday.

He said his government had considered calling all the dismissed members of the national parliament to Juba the seat of the government of South Sudan. Machar said the interim constitution of South Sudan, which is currently under amendment in preparation for independence would provide for their reintegration. One of the immediate options he said, would be to consider widening the size of the present membership of parliament in order to accommodate them.

The Vice President also said a further arrangement could be made on the fate of the executive and other national organs in Khartoum. He explained that only the Presidency, including the First Vice President Salva Kiir, who is also the President of South Sudan, and few key South Sudanese ministers would remain in Khartoum until July 9.

Machar has directed the minister of Human Resource Development, Mary Jervis, to provide comprehensive data on all the South Sudanese civil servants currently working in all the 15 states in the north.

On Saturday, the vice president and a number of ministers including the minister in the office of the president, Cirino Hiteng, minister of labor and public service, Awut Deng Acuil, and state minister in the office of the president in Khartoum, Wek Mamer, discussed plans on repatriation of the South Sudanese civil servants from the North before July 9.

Machar also directed the relevant ministers of labor and public service and of human resources development to provide information that will guide the government’s plans on reintegrating into South Sudan’s civil service the incoming civil servants from the north.

Tens of thousands of South Sudanese officials in the civil service are expected to be repatriated from the north’s national institutions.

Without a viable private sector in South Sudan to employ some of the returning civil servants, the vice president acknowledged that retraining some of them in English language and finding them the right positions in the government will be challenging.

Arabic and English are Sudan’s official languages under the interim constitution. It is unclear whether the South, which has a strong Christian and African identity will keep Arabic as an official language.

Indications from Khartoum show that English may be removed as an official language of the predominantly Islamic north. President Bashir who leads the pro-Arab Islamist NCP has said that after the South secedes there will be no diversity in the North.

I have nothing to say but to say history will tell and let all say SPLM/A oyee for liberating the entire South Sudanese under oppression and after food seekers who just want to fill their stomach.

      Dear readers,

      The idea of granting Darfur two more districts can be interpreted by those with small memory as a political tactic by the NCP to divide the Darfur people. Well, the Darfur people are not united and their disunity is portrayed by their established good for nothing rebel movements. The cause of war always relate to people’s grievances and I think adoption of the two states of Bare el Arab(political manipulated name) and Jebel Mara is a step to solve Darfur conflict and answer the demands of the people there.

      Back to South Sudan, Jonglei state is very huge in fact three times the size of warrap state, so it will be a test of new republic of ROSS if its legislators table the motion in the parliament on possibilities of establishing a new state out from Jonglei.

      Since Jonglei state has thirteen counties, their should be creation of more seven counties to put the number to twenty so that the new state shall go with ten with mother jonglei remaining with ten. The proclamation of new counties and a state in Jonglei shall also provides security the rich diversity of the two to be states.

      Here is the modality composition of the two to be states in Jonglei state; Bor county shall be divided into two as Athoch and Gok counties. Twic East of Maar together with payam of wanglei group together as a county(name to be greed upon). Kongor payam shall form a Alith county with Wernyol payam. Akobo, Uror, Yirol, waat and Ayod shall also have new counties emerging from them. Pibor is also very large county suitable of producing another county.Duk and Fangak plus boma are satisfied with their current state of being.

      The new state out of Jongelei shalll then be proclaimed basing on geographical privilege. The creation of new state in Jongeli will not only end marginalization of some counties but will also serves as the realization of SPLM project of "Taking towns to people". It shall particularly amount to creations of jobs as services shall be closer to the people.This shall minimize cattle rustling as youth shall get engaged in construction as a result of their acquired jobs.

      I know, Some morons outside there will blindly jump on this website and brand my comment something else, well, my comment is for interest of peace and development in our new country, it has nothing to do with what you are thinking!!

        Tariel,
        Are we creating more counties for jobs creation or to divide the state? I don’t get that Sir.

        As you said the purpose is to achieve peace and development. I would say it was good attempt but not the right solution to solve the problems. You don’t bring peace by looking on variables that have nothing to do with issues then to look at the actual causes of conflict and propose meaningful solutions. First the problem of Jonglei is not the borders each tribe shares with its neighbors. It is an ingrained hatred that has built up for so many years due to some political, social, and economical issues. They are the mistrust between the Murle, Dinka, and Nuer, 1991’s incidence, innate culture of cattle thievery and rustling in some tribes, a rampant syphilis in some quarters that compel them to commit human trafficking, and lack of social vacuum that has left those tribes to know less of each others for so many years. The list is not limited to only those few mentioned issues. It can add up has deem merit by Jonglein. Thus, to solve the problem you go by those few aforementioned problems and magnify each squarely to see what best possible solution you would go by to address the problem, and I believe many are in the process now. It will take time to fully see the peaceful Jongeli. It is in the hearts and minds of Jonglein state peaceful and develops then to be divided. It’s in simmering, so we don’t need to jump on the back of this wild horse called division of state. Borders are human imagination and they don’t hold any tangible substance to be obeyed. Our tribes are not obeying their tribal borders as of now, so what make one to thinks they will obey the state borderline if you are not going to build the checkpoints or wall/electric fence? My human conscience refuses that kind of thinking.

        In addition, on the issue of job creation, I don’t see that as a right approach to a job creation. Creating more counties does add any substantial margin of job creation to any economic. In new counties, the only thing you will create is one office and that is the office of commissioner. In that contact, the numbers of jobs you have created are approximately less than 10. These are the commissioner with his/her employees. Do we only need ten jobs in the county to boost economic? Nopi… However, the only place I would agree with you is the division of some counties due to a huge population. I agree, some counties are bigger than others and they deserve to be divided. Conversely, I think that can be addressed by inducing government to adapt the congressional style of U.S where representatives are nominated according to a state/district population.
        Thanks

    Dear Reader,

    These institutins are not the real problems at this time. The real problem is Abeyi. Both NCP and SPLM need to resolve Abeyi issue before they do anything else at this time, becuase once they(NCP&SPLM) become the official rulers of the two states respectively, NCP’ll be complacently do nothing toward Abeyi, and that may trigger a war like situation.

    Abeyi "right now" is like ticking bomb that could explode any time. I urge SPLM to resolve this issue of Abeyi as soon as possible because NCP is using "TIME" factor to prolong the process of Abeyi, demarcation, and etc.

    Let them have these institutions, we will create ours based on our own standards. But we can not create Abeyi, therefore, Abeyi will be Kashmeer of Sudan if SPLM and southerners do not take NCP seriously.

Abyie will soon be a problem of people of Abyie since Salva and his causins of Abyie are acting like prositututes, they discriminate Nuer in Ethiopia and yet wanting them to defend Abyie people. They are so stupid and they will pay the price of their stupid action.

          My compatriot Dinka Dominated, I’m really disappointed about your behavior, yesterday you appreciated Dr. Machar, today you insulted him, in this statement did Dr. Machar had said something or you are just a paranoiac human being who does not know how the world in large is conducted politically and in one of your statement yesterday, you said that Teliar Deng is your Uncle; immediately I understood that you are out of mind, because the lawyer or the legal learners could not support something which will continuous the crime; it is forbidden in the Law School. The Law as itself gives you the awareness of the dangers and good predictable of the concerned case. The lawyer could or never predicated the war between his interests; the really legal learning always avoids the conflicts. I think the man in question has forgot the really principles of Law or the doctrine of Law. in Luke 8:16-17: No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a stand so that those who come in can see the light, for there is nothing hidden that will not be known and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.
          What your uncle told the pubic in Juba well be known and it well happen according to what Dr. Machar predicted, please don’t be surprise within some months after, about the prophecies of the wise man, Dr. Machar.

      National Congress Party (NCP) will be having no time for the resolution of Abyei disputed area later on pretending to be busy somewhere else.
      For me personally,I thought Abyei issue could be the first then other minor treaties signed in Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) earlier 2005 will be completed later.

    GOSS Need To Works Very Hard.

    I think the government of Southern Sudan need to creates more job so that, those are not educated in English will find something to work on. Each State must have international airport so that more employees will have a job in the State as well as the International airport of Capital city which will need million to works. Construction of the Roads and Apartments building must starting right away in order to open more job for citizens.

    The government of Southern Sudan also must start immediately giving loan to its citizens who are willing to do business and at the same they will employe people in the communities. Promoting more Districts in the States so that, the government workers will be part of economic helping some citzens in the communities and also to promoting three more States for example, Warrap State is going to have Tonj which have 34 communities, Gogrial and Abyei, this become too much communities in these three mentions Tonj,Gogrial, Abyei and they must be divide in to two States. Blue Nile State must be promoted in to two States or calling Gambellan of Southern Sudanese to come back home Southern Sudan and promoting Nasir State and leave Jonglei State with Murle, Anyuak and Dinka Bor to share. There are many ways for the government to creates job to its people.

    Education sector also it will need more teachers to teach but the government need to build the medoling school first. Building more Hospitals in every where is very important. When having all these suggestion then, you will probably have chances to employe government mininsters in the State level and the Federal government level, how that sound to you.?

      Aleu,
      good job so far with your jobs proposal. It would have make sense if our government was scuplous to pour these vast oil monies into our infrastructures. However,it is hard to realize those superb ideas when the cowboys are robbing our nation’s wealth in our watch.

      Also, despite the state of affairs in jonglei, i don’t see any reason to split it into two.The state is the fabric and symbol of diversity in our nation. We need to keep it as it’s and continue to education our people to embrace one another regardless of what tribe one came from.In addition, We need to bury our past grudges and cultivated our future co-existance to enjoy this vast land of natural resources.Our majority in entire south sudan nation proved bitter and soar , but i believe it will taste sweet and enjoyful in the near future. It will give us more leverage across south sudan compare to any state.

      If this issue will be considering then there will be no more doubt in the development issues in the south. we are tired to see when the Capital will be move then peace will be restore to the central.

    Khartoum still needs to continue paying Southern’s civil servants and the parlimanterians until july 9 despite the disengagement.This is what will hold up what both parties had agreed to in CPA before we go our separate ways. If not, it wouldn’t makes any sense to squarely continue to share our oil with that defiance partner. Anything short of that is unfair and deemed as a cheap nogiating ability from Dr.Machar with his team.

    With the national languages, i think we should adopt Kenyan approach of using two languages. Keep English has the supreme language of the land followed by Arabic. This will give us fair shot of both worlds of West and Middle East. i hope we will not allow ourself to be consumed by Arab’s hatred to ignore our national interest.

If you don’t know English and you want to participate please use Idi Amin style of communicating, brief and strong speech, straight forward there you go. People will understand you and reach to the point you’re complaining or actually being oppressed if any.
        May Almighty God Bless south Sudan.

        Gaar or asshole,
        Get your asshole to the class and learn English or Arabic ,this site is not for your mother or your sister dialect.
        This website is read by the whole world,not your daddy alone.
        Better take your dumb ass to school before getting late,or join cattle rustlers and cattle keepers.

    Gaar. Fuck off with your dirty motherfucker mother tongue from this site. Do you think those who use this site are all from Nuer? If you are poor in English, then I’m sorry but you need to go to English school than going to Nuer school. Shame on you!

    The Dinka and Nuer visiting the Sudan Tribune webpage should concentrate on discussing issues instead of wasting time trading personal insults. Personal insults can never build a nation and it only shows the lack of politcal maturity and education of the people who engage in it.

    On the issue of South Sudan Independence, it will actually be on 10.07.2011 and not on 09.07.2011. The CPA ends on 09.07.2011 and therefore we cannot have independence on the day that it ends. We can only be independent from midnight 10.07.2011.

    Guys,

    It has come to my attention that some of you are not abiding by the house rules. instead of addressing an issue as its rightly reported by our hardworking team, you resort to making unnecessary comments that cannot serve anyone’s interest.

    BE WARNED THAT: we expect decency in everyone’s comments but when extraneous commentary is seen from some individuals, they will be deleted straight away or that member will not be allowed to login. we are not limiting anyone’s freedom of speech but this has gone far beyond the red line.

    I hope you’ll understand
