Name: Kuol Deng Kuol

Alias: Kuol Adol

Died: May 5, 2013

Career: Paramount chief of the Nine Ngok Dinka Chiefdoms of Abyei until his death in May 2013.

The former chief died when a convoy he was travelling in with the United Nations Interim Force for Abyei (UNISFA) was ambushed by armed members of the nomadic Arab Misseriya tribe on as they returned to Abyei town after a visit further north.

Kuol was part of a joint delegation from Juba and Khartoum that visited the area to hold talks on how the two sides could move forward with consultations to end the deadlock on the formation of a temporary administration in the strife-torn border zone.

The delegation had held talks in Abyei town from the 3-4 May, before travelling north to Kej for similar talks and to familiarise themselves with the activities of oil companies operating there.
