    May God rest Nyankol Mathiang in peace. She has done her part during the war and we are very proud of her for her great work she does in her songs. I f I were God, I would have let her witness the Abyei referendum because she is much concern about the region and the entire S.Sudan.Let reward Abyei for her for our all soul and life. Abyei is ours by all means-whether by guns or negotiation.
