The Kafia Kingi area is a mineral-rich region on the border between Sudan and South Sudan. It was due to be given to South Sudan under the terms of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement which required use of the Sudan "north-south line" as of "January 1 1956." . Sudan controls all or most of this area today, though at times since independence South Sudan forces have briefly controlled large portions. It was not until 1960 that the Kafia Kingi area was transfered north of that line and added to Darfur.
