January 7, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - Misseriya leaders said they are decided to settle in Abyei during this year to participate in the referendum over the future of the area which is claimed by Sudan and South Sudan.

Mahdi Babo Nimir; a leading tribal figure told reporters in Khartoum Monday after a meeting with presidential assistant Nafie Ali Nafie, they discussed Abyei issue and recent tribal clashes of Folla in South Kordofan between the Misseriya tribal groups.

He further said they informed Nafie of their decision to settle in Abyei during the summer and autumn seasons.

Adding that it is a crucial step to have the upper hand one the area and to avoid Abyei’s annexation to South Sudan.

Nimir went to point out that they do not want to embarrass the government in its commitments towards the international community, adding they will stick to their rights in the disputed region .

The divergent positions of Khartoum and Juba over the participation of the Misseriya nomads in the referendum hampered the organisation of the vote as scheduled in January 2011.

In a bid to end the difference over Abyei referendum, the African Union Peace and Security Council (AUPSC) endorsed a proposal providing to exclude the Misseriya from a referendum to be held in October of this year, despite Khartoum’s rejection.

The mediation says its proposal is in line with the rule of the Arbitration tribunal, while Sudan stresses that in accordance with the geographic criteria agreed by the parties - border line of 1956 define the territory of North and South Sudan- the region is part of the current Sudanese territory.

Nimir said they asked the government to support their demands to settle the nomads permanently in Abyei.

The African peace and security body is to meet on 13 January at the level the presidents of head of states and governments to decide whether or not to refer the proposal to the UN Security Council.

Vice-presidents Ali Osman Taha and Adam Al-Haj Yassein is touring the AUPSC countries to convince them not to follow the mediation in its proposal and give the parties more time to reach a negotiated deal.

        Abyei sons especially the sons of Deng Majok e.g Mading Deng, Biong Deng, Pieng Deng etc, need to open their eyes.

    Absolutely right decision and we will support them by collecting money from all Sudanese people to settle Misseryia in Abyei, all Misseryia in South Kordofan are required to move and settle in Abyei, all of them with no distinction (those in Al-Fula who fought recently are also included)!

      Misseryia can come back to north immediately after they vote yes for Abyei to be north in the coming referendum, Misseryia numbers in South Kordofan are huge compare to tiny number of Dinka Ngok in Abyei and no doubt they’ll move Abyei north once and for ever!!

        Jalaby,You missed the point or you don’t know the route caused of disputes and get clear here, the point is who own the land, Ngok or Misseriya? and definitely Ngok,(Arbitration court ruling), no matter whom are living there in huge number as in your narrow understanding.Abyei as a SS soils will never be move not even carry like oil NCP stolen. It will be in S.Sudan once and for all.

        Jalaby:
        You are more deluded than I thought. There will be no Referendum in which these nomadic, seasonal migrants are allowed to participate in. The Misseriya have just conceded what everybody else already knows to be the case — that they are not people of Abyei... that they’re just seasonal migrants from Babanusa. I sincerely hope that this salient admission isn’t lost on you.

          The Misseriya reside in Muglad and Babanusa - north of Abyei. These people do not have any legitimate permanent settlements in Abyei. The Misseriya are transhumant; their traditional lands and permanent settlements are in Babanusa and Muglad; they are merely seasonal migrants, residing in Abyei for a derisory amount of time — four [4] months in a year.

            I think I might keep repeating these FACTS until you and your ilk muster up the courage to challenge me with material evidence. Until then: The lands of the Misseriya are significantly to the far north-west — in Muglad and Babanussa; lands that they were able to appropriate from the Nuba at the time of their entrance into the Sudan just two centuries ago.

                Think for a second. AU and the UN have all concured that the referendum will be held without the so called Messyes. Do not rejoice at what your lying government official tells a few of the nomads that they will be allowed to vote.

              This plan to alter the demographic character of Abyei will not be regarded as legitimate... by anyone outside your genocidal country and quite certainly not by the people who would be mandated with the task of monitoring the deferred Referendum. And so this facile conspiracy will be for naught; it will not legitimize land theft!

        Ya Jalaby/Abujalabiya,
        Thank you for being able to see clearly the exit of National Criminal Party (NCP) which is too close to be incredibly seen within the next few weeks not months. Competitive interpretation of Quran to govern Sudan will no longer be practiced because Mujahideens and Messeriya tribes are recognized and given financial, political and military support only during crisis.

        Jalaby, the NIF/NCP crimes ridden regime in Khartoum is finally out of tricks to use in holding the Ngok Dinka people and their referendum hostage. But their latest tricks of settling their stooges Misseryia in Abyei will not work because the referendum laws clearly define who is eligible to vote. So my friend Jalaby, you need to spare us your excitement.

          The whole of Africa is behind the Abyei people’s referendum this time. If that’s the last option on the table for your indicted criminals, forget about Abyei then. Your rhetoric has no substances at all, because if the entire Misseryia move to Abyei just to increase the population, what do you thinks the Dinka will do? Or do you also belief that Misseryia are greater in number compare the Dinka?
