The caretaker commissioner of Alal County in Abyei Administrative Area says they have formed committees to protect the forests in the area. The committees will monitor and report on cutting down of grasses before they are ready.

Hon. Akuei Akoon Wel warns the public against cutting green grasses before they are ripe. He says cutting it before it is ready threatens its existence and prefers grass to be cut after it has produced and dropped seeds. Hon. Wel  warned that those who cut green grasses will face the law.

Most people in Abyei Administrative Area use grasses to build their houses.
