January 22, 2020 (KHARTOUM) - More than twenty people were killed in the disputed area of Abyei after tribal attacks by Misseriya armed men on a Dinka Ngok village, according to the UN peacekeeping mission (UNISFA) and local leaders.

"19 people are reportedly dead and 25 wounded while three children are reportedly missing and 19 houses burnt from the Dinka community," said UNISFA on Wednesday.

The Mission Spokesman Daniel Adekera told Sudan Tribune that the two sides had already clashed in Kolom on 20 January 2020.

"Three people were killed, one of them a Dinka, (on Monday)," he added.

Accordingly, the death toll has risen to 22 people killed during the clashes on Monday and Wednesday.

For his part, a Dinka Ngok administrative leader Kuol Alor Kuol told the AFP that 32 people were killed and over 15 people were abducted by the assailants.

The cause of the clashes is not clear but the cattle rustling is one of the sources of violence in the area.

However, Kuol told Reuters that attackers wanted to drive Dinka Ngok out of the area "enhance their access to grazing resources".

There is no local police or administrative structures in Abyei.

The Dinka Ngok call to hold a referendum on the future of the area which remains a Sudanese territory to allow them to join South Sudan.

However, the parties’ failure on who can participate in the vote prevented the organization of the referendum as agreed in the 2005 agreement which paved the way for the independence of South Sudan in July 2011.

The border straddling-area of Abyei was seen in the past as a bridge between the north and south Sudan and a model of peaceful coexistence.

However, the 10,500 km area is now an obstacle for the development of good relations between Khartoum and Juba due to the political and security vacuum.

The UNISFA deployed troops in the area to contain the situation and prevent escalation as armed men from both sides are converging to Kolom.

The peacekeeping force further warned the conflicting parties against the resumption of clashes.

"UNISFA would like to reiterate that any presence of armed groups within the Abyei box other than its own troops is viewed by the mission as a violation of its mandate and will not hesitate to place responsibility on those engaged in such violations".

The Sudanese transitional government issued a statement condemning the tribal violence

"Thirty-two people were killed among them children and women, and secondly about 24 people are wounded ... about 15 people including children were abducted and 20 houses burned," Kuol Alor Kuol, the chief administrator of the Abyei area, told AFP news agency.

In Khartoum, the Sudanese government condemned the attacks on civilians by the armed men.

The government spokesman Faisal Mohamed Saleh further called on UNISFA forces in the region to control security and protect civilians.

    This is horrible news. I’m praying for the families who have lost their loved ones and for the people who have been abducted to be safely returned. If UNISFA is unable to protect the Ngok Dinka then they must say so. They can’t call for no weapons in Abyei when they aren’t able to protect the Ngok Dinka. That only leaves them susceptible to future attacks.

                    .The Ngok arrived in Abyei a full generation before the Misseriya were able to dislodge and displace the indigenous shatt Nuba from Turda in Muglad, north of Abyei. In fact, certain sections of the Ngok assisted the Misseriya in seizing control of Muglad from the Nuba in 1765-1775.

But their youth have all fled to Sudan, Equatoria, Uganda and Kenya. They can save their shitholes. No Equatorians, Nuer, Collos or the rest will waste time to die 💀 again for these worthless kuffar.

              Equatoria was home to dozens of Khartoum-compliant tribal militias; the Nuer provided tens of thousands of militiamen to do Khartoum’s bidding - especially in the 90s. The vast majority of South Sudan’s tribes worked hand in hand with Khartoum against the Dinka during the war, so threatening to not get involved this time would be a huge plus for the Dinka...

                ..We’ve been fighting the Arabs for centuries; we lost over a million people fighting Khartoum in the second Sudanese civil war. The Dinka accomodated the return of Khartoum’s ’Junubin’ militiamen when the CPA was signed in 2005. None of the 63 tribes should ever be required to get involved in a Dinka-Arab war.

                    I genuinely find your ethnic tinged barbs funny, mate. The Dinka will have to protect the Ngok because they seem incapable of putting up any kind of resistance — unlike all the other Dinka sections on the border that retaliate against the Rizeigat and the Salamat Arabs anytime they come under attack. You’re not cowards, but none of the 63 tribes are required.

The Nuer all left in 91; the Shilluk followed Lam Akol; the Murle were Khartoum surrogates; the same is true for the ’Fertit’ -> a designation for a dozen tribes in Western Bahr el Ghazal; Equatoria produced Khartoum supplied and suppprted tribal militias and organised outfits like Martin Kenyi’s Equatorian Defence Force.

                      You were neither a member of the SPLM nor recruited in any of its battalions. Those jienges that joined the movement en masse were oblivious of the real causes for liberation. They were told, Equatorians with kokora had them thrown out. Most Equatorian youths who joined the SPLA were made to understand, they were unwanted. Jienges rather went for Nubas, Darfuris and Ingessena mercenaries.

                        The Nuba and the people of Blue Nile are our brothers, not mercenaries; the Dinka migrated to South Sudan from the Gezira (Blue Nile) in the 13th Century. Contrary to what some ignorant and deluded Equatorians think of themselves, most of you are Nilotic and also have your origins in the Gezira.

                    I think the man was speaking of the Dinka as a whole. The Ngok of Abyei are weak and naive; their lack of martial prowess invites these attacks. The Ngok are also the most Arabized Dinka section and routinely marry their daughters off to the Misseriya even as they come under attack from them.

                      I view it slightly differently. I think that is commendable of the Ngok of Abyei. Their ability to forgive Misseriya, despite the heinous crimes some of the Misseriya carried out, and not stereotype the entire tribe speaks to their desire to coexist and live in peace. It is honorable. However, I do not believe in forgiveness until you become endangered. Self-preservation must be prioritized

Was it not Dr Francis Deng who ferociously attacked the SPLM for harbouring separatist tendencies by advocating for a plebiscite? Was he not the very person that glorified jienge-jellaba blood relations?

                            Rape? That is for jienge kuffar and jellaba weaklings who have no oratory and seducing skills. We Equatorians have no word for rape and never expect that from me. As for 300 cows, that is negotiable 😁.

    The South Sudan nation which you are talking about was liberated by Dinkas people in the SPLA while Equatorians were hiding on Mountain. This Abyei is the national issued if you are awordac man. I think Nuers people will be better than Equatorians people when it come to national issued. Most Equatorians people are fearful and unpatriotic we know that.

      Mayendit,
      You jienge loser! We have no SS nation, but a jienge republic. Did you jienges ask the other ethnicities or nationalities, if they ever wanted to live with you? Keep to yourselves that is fine, as for us Equatorians, we see no cultural, intellectual nor economic value addition from you. You jienges come to us, we don’t go to you, for what?

        Still waiting for the "SS liberators" to come up and retake Abyei wholly from their jellaba masters. I’m afraid, the reputed "mathiang anyoor" are only good at raping defenceless women and stealing. Forget Abyei and just run 🏃 to Kenya or Uganda. It’s over.

          That kind of advise is precisely the path certain tribes and regions took during the war, so it’s hilarious hearing it from you. You’re projecting and I find it amusing. With the exception of the soft, myopic Ngok, none of the other Dinka sections on the North-South border get attacked by the Baggara Arab tribes. The Dinka will need to unify and confront this threat as a whole.

      When the Equatorians started the Anyanya movement in Torit, jienges were still running naked after their cows, completely ignorant of any national liberation struggles. 17 years Equatorians did it alone, only to have jienge latecomers crowding in for positions in the regional govt. Equatoria is not SS. Just go and develop your stinking luaks.

        Cool story, bro. It’s a complete distortion but it is funny. Anya-Nya was formed in 1963 and the war ended in 1971, so where did you get 17 years from? The 1955 mutiny was short-lived. The Dinka have been resisting and containing the Arabs for centuries before you knew of the Arabs. Also, Anya-Nya was not a centralised movement; the Dinka in Bahr el Ghazal had their own cells.

          Khent,

          The intent of my posts was to express sympathy for the Ngok Dinka, who were killed. I then criticized UNISFA and their policy, which leaves the Ngok Dinka vulnerable. I then criticized the Misseriya and suggested the Sudanese government disarm any Misseriya entering Abyei to minimize chances of violence.

            I then spoke out against ignoring Abyei and suggested arbitration as a solution. I wasn’t trying to argue that Abyei belongs to Misseriya. I haven’t read the results of PCA. Your passive aggressive comments aren’t appreciated. However, I do appreciate the brief summary. I don’t get why you’re asking Jubabone for neutrality. He comes off more biased than anyone in this thread lol

              Look, I was making use of sarcasm in response to your arbitration suggestion. The two halves of Greater Sudan could go to war over this, so I expect all of us to know the particulars. I went on the offensive based entirely on my experience with Northerners on this issue. I’ll be individual specific in the future.

                I understand where you’re coming from. I held a similar opinion to that of the northerners you referred to until I actually spoke to a brother that is from the Ngok Dinka of Abyei. I’ve also said that I recognize the dominant rights of the Ngok Dinka to Abyei on this site before.

                  Personally, I believe if that if they want secede & join SS (which they do given the 99.9% referendum which isn’t recognized) & SS accepts the Misseriya to peacefully enter unarmed to graze, then I completely support the Ngok Dinka. Admittedly, this position isn’t popular throughout the north.

                    I would like to add that I would love for them to stay in a Sudan that accepts them fully, respects their cultural differences, and gives them all the rights they’re entitled to as citizens, but I believe we decades away from achieving that. Fortunately, I now believe our society is slowly and surely heading toward that direction, especially the younger generation. They’re a lot more accepting.

        Do you know, that Garang nearly gave up leading the SPLA/M after it was nearly defeated in 1994? Do you know that Katiba Tafeng, Mukshasha and Shakoush were instrumental in reversing all the SPLA loses during the Bright Star Operations? Do you know it was Equatoria, owing to its strategic position massively helped the SPLA logistically?Jiengelands only offered foot soldiers and cows.
