  • This attempt at educating ourselves about history is highly welcomed. However, this fall short of how the town of Malakal actually developed; when and why it was transferred from Taufikia; its different quarters and why they were named so; its northern and southern borders; why it only was a Town council unlike others which were in general councils; which districts bordered Malakal and why Abuong district, renamed Bailiet, administered from Malakal which now prompts the Padang Dinka to think that Malakal is Dinka land; how Malakal as a town was linked tp bailiet and Akoka to form one geographic constituency during the 1956, 1967 parliamentary elections and many other facts should have been inculded to make it really a history of Malakal. So Dr. Daniel should please fill the gaps as this will contribute to resolving the on going claims. regards
