State of Emergency declared in East Darfur: Governor

Post by Mazy on Mon Aug 26 2013, 01:04

I don't know but this doesn't look good to me, there are so many militia groups however I thought that the SAF was one of alBashir's I have to check it out tomorrow my brain is scrambled right now going to bed. There are 3-4 articles at the link days before, leading up to this one.

The Governor of East Darfur state, Abdel Hamid Musa Kasha, has declared a State of Emergency in East Darfur, and extended the brief of the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) in the area.

In a statement on Saturday, Governor Kasha said that he has authorised regular SAF forces “to deter criminals and militiamen.”

Tensions between the Rizeigat and Ma’alia were triggered in the state earlier this month by unresolved disputes concerning access to land resources. An estimated total of 209 people were killed and 305 were wounded in clashes.

Unamid airlifted representatives of the tribes to Al Tawisha, North Darfur to participate in the signing of an agreement to cease hostilities in East Darfur

The Governor said that he had documentary evidence, in the form of minutes of meetings, that “elements of the tribe’s leaderships conspired to ensure the current situation”. He announced the formation of a committee under the chairmanship of Nazir Musa Jalis, cheiftain of the Birgit Tribe and head of the legislative council of East Darfur.

Five senior members of each tribe will serve on the committee which will be charged to follow-up on the implementation of the cessation of hostilities resolution, to disperse the gatherings of combatants in the area, and to ensure the return to Ed Daein of those Ma’alia civil servants and executives who were dismissed from Ed Daein and Abu Karinka during the fighting.

You know, I almost didn't click on the story because I couldn't take anymore--needed a break from the violence.

But I am sooo happy that I did because the above is very encouraging....at least on the surface. I'm always cautious because political leaders will say one thing and do another, as we have seen with Bashir.

But, yeah...I am happy at the moment with anticipation. Very Happy cheers sunny

I know what you about taking a break it does get to you day after day I have decided that I have to also take a break for a day or so. Too many heartbreaking stories.

BBC radio 4s influential 'Today' programme's John Humphries interviewed Akshaya Kumar of Satellite Sentinel and Enough Project this morning about His Nibs' involvement. She went on to describe exactly what it was all about and the latest developments.

And President Obama appointed the new special Envoy to the region yesterday, Don Booth. Sure somebody will be meeting him soon!

Thank you so much PAN for that information I really appreciate it. I stayed away from this thread for two days my head and my heart needed some space to get things into place. It does depress you when you see and hear of the same violence going on day after day.

Now we have so many other areas liker Syria, Egypt and the rest that are heading down the same path. You think where are these places going to be in ten years. If something comes up about them that I think important I will pass it on. However I cannot get as involved with the newsletters and searching all the articles like I do with Darfur, just not enough hours in the day. I will not cut back on what I now do.

It amazes me how George keeps up with all that he does. He seems to be constantly working on getting things done. I could never know all the time that he spends on finding information and solutions. There is so much that he does and so many of his critics should do one tenth. Sorry for ranting. Thanks again.
