The THREE TRANSITION AREAS
RECOVERY AND DEVELOPMENT
Situation analysis: Migration season has begun, with nomadic camps reported ca. 45 km West of Abyei Town. Misseriya groups still oppose any border demarcation. There were road blocks particularly in the area 11 km North of Um Kheir (between Abyei and Mujlad) during the reporting week hampering access to the area.
The Three Transitional Areas
Situation analysis: Scepticism amongst Misseriya towards the PCA ruling persists. Fears over possibly losing traditional grazing rights need to be taken into consideration during public education on the PCA and progress in recovery.
The Abyei Administration is hindered by internal conflict. During reporting week the Governor Arop Moyak suspended the Minister for Local Governance (NCP). In addition the Abyei Legal/Prosecutor office was closed for two weeks, following a dispute between the Governor, the SPLM and GoSS- Ministry of Legal Affairs.
THE THREE TRANSITIONAL AREAS
Abyei area was calm over the reporting period. Access limited by rain or security concerns posed difficulties to the Boundary Demarcation Teams.
Migration: The Abyei Area Chief Administrator re-emphasized that the Government is committed to protect the Misseriya nomads' right to migrate.
