Force Deployed to Disengage, Prevent Friction between Misseriya and Rizeigat
Khartoum: East Darfur Governor Mohammed Abd Allah Hamid confirmed that Misseriya and Rizeigat tribes pledged not to resume fighting and to reinforce the reconciliation recommendations between them, explaining that the secure ty status is now stable.
He said the forces deployed would separate and prevent conflicts between the two tribes, explaining that the latest visit he paid to the area (Suburbs of Abu Jabra) in which he was accompanied by his honor Ahmed Haroun was intended to assess the overall situation in the wake of the latest events that led to the death of tens of people.
Misseriya leader Hasab Alrasol Alnor attributed the occurrence of tribal disputes to administrative vacuum. In the past when there wasn't such a vacuum, such disputes and security breaches were prevented; especially considering that most of these breaches are due to not paying blood money for the families of the victims.
Alnoor demanded that the government must impose its dominion to avoid the expected reaction in case the retribution, avengement, and reconciliation issues are not discussed soon enough.
Mohammed Abd Allah Abu Dabook said that these forces were the outcome of Abu Haraz conference two years back and they were supposed to have been deployed but that did not happen. He explained that the mission of these forces is to monitor the security breaches performed by both tribesmen, avoid them and prevent them, determining the assailant party, and holding it in check, all of which will lead to preventing the occurrence of such horrific events.
Abu Dabook confirmed that the two tribes maintain joint relations but there are some parties who want to spur disagreement in the area and use unsuspecting people to carry out their agendas that are in the best interests of neither the country nor the two tribes.
