UN opens Security Monitoring Bases in Akobo and Pibor
David Gressly, the UNMIS coordinator in Southern Sudan said in a press conference in Khartoum that UNMIS has opened bases in both Akobo and Pibor.

This move follows  the tribal fightings that happened between Murle and Nuer in March and April this year. The bases are meant to stabilize the security situation in the region.

The bases will be comprised of both millitary and civilian personelles.

This moves gives importance to combating tribal fighting in Sudan. It will also encourage the government of South Sudan to do more to protect the innocent who are constantly affected by tribal clashes.

Those affected by the fighting are mostly women and children who are helpless in the face of what they littel understand.

The government on South Sudan, despite its effort to combat tribal fighting, has so far failed to contain it.  Gressly move will be a helping hand to the government of South Sudan however small the bases might be. Their symbolic presence could be an encouragement to local civilians.
