Truck drivers arrested in Yambio for committing adultery


By Richard Ruati

January 29, 2009 (YAMBIO) – Two truck drivers of the Khartoum-based Eyat Company have been arrested for committing adultery during midnight with women alleged to be married.

According to a police officer, Captain Meddy Magido, “a mob of young energetic men stormed the playing ground of Nakpangau Primary school with sticks and batons in their hands in pursuit of the two ladies involved in the adultery.”

Magido stated that, "It was past midnight, that the two young looking drivers by the names of Abdullah I. and Hassan M., found their way into the honey pot of the two unidentified girls whose names were not disclosed to PNU, as they told their lovers that they were not married neither one was a virgin nor a house wife, but they are for business like (prostitution)."

Local observers say, these two drivers, after starving in the wilderness in northern Sudan for decades, got the golden chance and made their way with these two unidentified lovers to the base where they made themselves comfortable.

Speaking at the door in front of Yambio police maximum security prison, the adulterers confessed that they had taken two women to their transit camp base, after the women had told the drivers they were not married.

"We slept till midnight and they took off. After a while, we suddenly heard noise, quarrels and a fight broke into our quarters; we were attacked, beaten and arrested," said Abdullah.

Consequently, these men did not fulfill their duties to their expectation due to the heavy fighting which broke among the drivers and men believed to be close to the family of the virgin and the married woman, the women were shortly rescued to their home. On a sad note, one of these was a virgin aged 15 years old and the other a married woman.

Abdullah however disclosed that, “this is the first of its kind in my life for such a terrible misery to happen to me.”

"I am terrified but I pray that, if released, I will stay away from ladies within," he said.

He warned his fellow colleagues in the company "to take precaution on what has happened to us and let this serve as the first and last example to all of them."

Capt. Meddy stressed that, "with immediate effect after the trials of the two drivers and their prostitute ladies, the company should with no delay transfer to their destination in Diabio in order to leave the minds of the residents free about their women."

He added that, "the presence of these drivers in the area has caused chaos to some families."

Therefore he encouraged the local authority in charge of security in conjunction with the police forces to ensure that these drivers are transferred or else the residents will strike and harm the drivers.

Eyat Company is a northern Sudanese company; it is being contracted by GOSS and funded by USAID to construct the trunk road from Diabio to Tambura County.

With the economic crisis hitting the world over, sex workers in Yambio are taking advantage of foreigners to make dollars and Sudanese pounds, as similar behaviors occurred when CIVICOM Company started road construction in Nzara.

    Since the incident did not invovle kidnapping or rape then I assume there was no crime happened. It was just a consensual sex therefore, these two truck drivers are innocent and they should not be punished.

      I think,It was an agreement between the married lady and the truck drivers that little girl is innocent and a mere victim of economic constrains.but still truck drivers should be try according to Constitution in South Sudan which prohibited defying under-age and as for the married woman the husband should sue the drivers for committing adultery with his wife.had it happen in in the North between Arabs ladies and South Sudanese truck drivers it could have been deem death penality as per the Koran. Justice should be apply in this case by using the constitution or refering to some verses related to this case in the Bible.I give big credit to Sudan Tribune Editor for eliminating those who used comments to cause havoc and disunity among our tribes in South Sudan we need to use this website as beacon of hope for the people of South Sudan.

    shame on those who pinpoint a tribue. Don’t you know that in any society or community, there are good and bad ones. even in a family level, things are happening.
    anyway, is a bad news. but i don’t blame the drivers, because it’s not rape case. moreover, they were told by those bitches that they are not marriage.

      try and see if they will be be as tolerant if this took place in the north with a northern woman. i think they’ll kill you twice.

      personally i think they should be punished according to the law that protects the under-aged(15yrs).

          I have not came across that message blamed tribes. We really need to back off from that controversial topic, "Tribe" because it blind us from seeing the truth. According to our culture, the Sudanese, adultery cannot be organize by a group to go and commit it against another. I am glad the webmaster had dealt with it already.

    O, Guys it is normal!!!

    Trucks Drivers even in Hollywood movies and wherever they go they make mess and amusement like army soldiers. To cope with, if you can, when Bach-achaos conveys approach your village or town keep women away of messy guys’way. Remember, you can’t control over women unless they by themselves chose or decide to meet, runaway or hide.

      Alhassan, I suggest that those drivers should be kill according to koran introduce by mahamed.one dinka lady was stone to death by court in khartoum,therefore the same thing should apply to the two drivers too.
