Hemetti, Gatluak discuss security situation in Abyei


Mohamed Hamdan Daglo Hemetti (SC photo)April 30, 2020 (KHARTOUM) - The deputy head of Sudan’s Sovereign Council, Thursday discussed the security developments in the disputed areas of Abyei with the South Sudanese presidential for security affairs.

Lt Gen Mohamed Hamdan Daglo "Hemetti" and Tut Kew Gatluak spoke by telephone about recent bloody attacks that took place in Abyei, according to the official SUNA.

"The two sides agreed on the need to find radical and final solutions to the problem during the next two days," said the agency without further details about these attacks.

The statement said Abyei witnessed during the past two days some frictions that caused some victims without elaborating on the incidents.

United Nations Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNIFSA) did not issue a statement about the attack.

On 13 April, Misseriya armed men attacked Mabok village in southern Abyei killing four Ngok Dinka and kidnapping of one child. Also, some 50 dwellings in the village were burnt down.

The two sides stressed that such problems that occur occasionally cannot affect the eternal relations between the peoples of the two brotherly countries, said the statement.

    General Mohammed Hamdan Daglo.
    The Misseriya Militan will affected our relation between Northern Sudan and South Sudan respectively. The Sudanese government have failed to bring those terrorist who killed 32 people in Kolom village. In order to have good relation with Northern Sudan first, the Khartoum government must bring those responsible killings 32+4 people and 15 children abducted innocent.

    I am wondering why the South Sudanese President Salva Kiir Mayardit ignored the killings of Dinka Ngok?. I don’t think president Kiir Mayardit is a citizen of South Sudan, because during the referendum voting process, he put his vote on the Box United. I think Salva Kiir Mayardit should not lead South Sudan nation he was thinking about his position for vice president this is why he drop his vote

    I have been involved in politics for very long time but I have not seen a leader of the nation keeping silence while, his citizens were murdering at the daylight this is unacceptable otherwise, the quotation by the foreign friends that, the South Sudanese President is unfit and useful Idiot. I could not belief the president Salva Kiir keep quiet when 32 people murdered and 15 children abducted. Ki
