Payam Tiar-aleit

Tiar-aleit is a boma in Tiar-aleit payam, Ajak County, Aweil State, South Sudan.

A boma is a lowest-level administrative division, below payams, in South Sudan. Equivalent fifth-level divisions elsewhere are described as village, block or ward. As of 2009, South Sudan's 514 payams have an average of 4.2 bomas each. Bomas vary in size and typically contain many individual villages. The term boma originated from the town of Boma in Jonglei, the first place captured by the Sudan People's Liberation Army at the start of its 1983 insurgency.

Notes

  1. In 2008, at the time of the census, Tiar-aleit was located in Northern Bahr el Ghazal State, Aweil South County. The data collected during the Fifth Population and Housing Census of Sudan were to be the primary source of information for decisions about the number and demarcation of electoral constituencies and administrative boundaries in what was then southern Sudan. South Sudanese officials rejected census results for southern Sudan.
