The committee that was formed to investigate Aneet conflict has concluded its investigation in Twic County of Warrap state and shall move to Aneet and Abyei to carry out the same task respectively.

The Head of the investigation committee Vice President Hussein Abdelbagi Akol says  “We just  finished our (Aneet FFC) discussion with Twic Traditional leaders (who are the key players in peace building) centered on establishing and understanding the root causes, particularities and historical experiences of the communal conflict between Twic and Ngok Dinka.

In our discussion, Twic Chiefs were unanimous in their acceptance of dialogue over violence towards resolving conflict related issues,” Hussein said.

Vice President Hussein also added that the investigation targeted the Warrap state authorities and commanders of the Organized forces in relation to circumstances surrounding the violent conflict.

“As a committee of inquiry, we have appreciated and welcomed their well-articulated position in ending hostilities built along a shared communal identity. Now, we shall move to Aneet to assess the situation and proceed to Abyei town where the similar processes will be done including listening to Abyei Chiefs, too. A move to restore a shattered social relation between Twic and Ngok Dinka,” he added.  

Hussein further explained that causes of the conflict will be unveiled or made public after a unified investigation position.

The conflict between Twic and Ngok Dinka started on the 10th February, which resulted in the death of some people, others injured, some homes and business centers were burnt.
