“I told my brother Deng Alor [the minister of Cabinet Affair] that they [Abyei leaders working in South Sudan] should go to Abyei and mobilize the people register for the referendum,” President Kiir said.

He said nobody will be allowed to vote in Juba or elsewhere in South Sudan for the Abyei referendum.

Kiir was speaking at a press conference on June 10 in Juba.

Khartoum’s push for the nomadic Arab pastoralists to take part in the Abyei referendum denied the people of Abyei their right to determine where they would want to belong as per the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).

A new date (October 2013) has been fixed by the African Union for the Abyei referendum. Nonetheless, the Abyei Administration, Abyei referendum Commission as well as the Abyei police are yet to be formed.
