 People gather around a house burnt by Misseriya gunmen in Komol of Abyei area on 22 January 2020 (ST photo)April 14, 2020 (JUBA) - Four people were killed by Misseriya gunmen on Monday in the village of Mabok, located 17 miles south-east of Abyel town, according to a statement released by Kuol Alor Jok, the head of South Sudan’s Abyei Special Administrative Area.

The "attack claimed the lives of four innocent citizens; two children are abducted; many houses were burned, and more than one hundred (100) Goats and citizens’ properties were also looted by the Misseriya."

Jok condemned the " barbaric attack" in strongest terms possible and called on the UNISFA to take the needed measures to prevent such attacks in the disputed area of Abyei and to arrest the perpetrator of the attack.

UNISFA, recently organized two meetings of Ngok Dinka and Misseriya traditional leaders to discuss peace and security matters to ensure the Misseria’s movement towards the grazing areas south to Bahr al-Arab or Kiir River basin during the dry season.

However, the parties failed to reach an agreement on the southward transhumance of the Misseriya cattle.

Also, the Misseriya herders clashed three times this month with Ngok Dinka, according to UNISFA.

"In one incident, on 2 April in Leu, 4 Misseriya owned cows died in a rocket-propelled grenade attack and in another, at Hadid near Marial Achak on 9 April, reportedly 2 Misseriya herders were killed and 5 kidnapped, and over 100 cows were rustled," said the UN force.

On 20 January, three Misseriya were killed in Kolom, near Noong, about nine kilometres North-West of Abyei town.

Following what the Misseriya carried out a revenge attack on 22 January, on Kolom on Wednesday 22 January killing 32 people and wounded 24 others according to Dina Ngok leaders. Also, they said that the assailants abducted 15 children, and burned 22 houses.

Sudan and South Sudan have failed to organize a referendum on the fate of the contested border area as they did not agree on who can take part in the vote.

Also, the Ngok Dinka refuse to form a joint administration including a police force, saying the priority should be given to the referenda.

    I think it’s a time for us as a nation to wake up. The mistreated to our people in Abyei by Khartoum has reached the boiling points. Salva Kiir has to come out from his hiding place to express his condolences to those who lost their loves ones from that targeted killing. And also strongly condemn Khartoum for inhumane to treatment to people of Abyei.

      S. Sudan was, is and NEVER will be a nation-state. It is a jienge-nyagat republic. It´s your business to mobilize your nyors/nyagat militia to go fight the Messiriya and leave the other 62 tribes out. You cant run to Equatoria, Kenya, Uganda to hide your cowardly shitholes and expect the rest to fight and in the end you claim "we liberated it".NO

        Kurkoo!!!!! Misseriya are nothing. They hit and run to hide, we will get them. For your information, South Sudan tribes are not 64 tribes as some stupid people want them to be. Just look, Dinka Atut of Yirol is counted as tribe. Dinka clan of Gogrial, Jur Manangeir is counted as a tribe. These are two Dinka clans, but stupid people like you count them as tribes to make 64 tribes.

          Kurkoo!!!!!Members Bari tribe were raped by fake Arabs inside during our civil war. They did not fight back as human. Do you think any real person in South Sudan can reply on Bari tribe during war? No way. These are cowards and stupid monkeys. We should leave them alone. Better to die standing than living on your knees. We, the Dinka know how to stand and die during the war.

            Dirty, cowardly jienge. You can howl like a hyena and hide your shithole in Kenya or Uganda. Abyei is for the jellaba and your fellow jienge relatives are their slaves. You can do nothing about it and the Nuers in IO will not save your filthy shitholes. Hang yourself kaffir. The only thing "monyjienges" can do is rape, steal and runaway in search of nyamnyam, ya MTN wasaka.

              Dirty jienge kaffir, you carried for us water and we dressed you up when you came to Juba as naked savages. Today, you pretend to be civilised and wear suits, are ministers etc. You could dress giant gorillas with big heads and less intelligence and they could still speak Bari than a foolish and dumb jienge bush nigga. Just human crap.

    Where are you cowards, looking at your people are dying daily like a insects. While you are always pretending to be reals men on nets. You are really excellent for looting, rapping, burning and displacing the innocents in South Sudan after Uganda forces driven out the oppositions from their areas.

      We are working on this issue and soon or later on you will hear unless the people of Abyei are mindless. One of the agendas asking Abyei communities to prepare for better or worse. Second, Kiir Mayardit must be taking out through real coup as the only solution. Thirdly, banned all Nomads tribes who came from North Sudan so that, they have no grazing land and water as well. Kiir unable man
