Sudan says West plotting to “clone” Darfur in South Kordofan


August 14, 2011 (KHARTOUM) – A Sudanese parliamentarian has accused South Sudan and the West of supporting the rebellion in the country’s southern state of South Kordofan in order to create a pretext for the deployment of UN troops.

Calls for intervention to contain the ongoing armed conflict between Sudan’s army and the rebels Sudan People’s Liberation Army/Movement in South Kordofan have started to gain traction after two months since the war erupted in early June.

Khartoum recently terminated the mandate of the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) which was established in 2005 to monitor the implementation of the 2005’s comprehensive peace agreement that paved the way for South Sudan’s independence in July.

The deputy speaker of the Sudanese parliament, Hagu Gasim Al-Said, on Sunday told his fellow parliamentarians that the government of South Sudan and some Western countries are supporting the plans of the SPLM’s leader Abdul Azizi Al-Hilu to undermine security in the state so the UN could find an excuse to deploy its troops.

According to the MP, AL-Hilu’s plan aims to setup displacement camps in the state to serve as an excuse for Western aid agencies to enter South Kordofan. “They wanted to clone another Darfur in the state,” he added in an address to parliamentarians from South Kordofan.

The UN estimates that at least 200,000 people in South Kordofan have been killed, injured or forced to flee their homes and land since the fighting erupted.

Al-Said pointed out that the government had strongly resisted the creation of displacement camps in the region. “We supported the displaced with all our powers in order to block any attempt to setup displcament camps in the area so South Kordofan will not become Darfur two,” he claimed

However, he later admitted the existence of refugees in the eastern rims of South Kordofan and that they need urgent support.

    Idon’t know why God keep bad people like these Khartoum ruler on earth.

    Khartoum government said, publicly that, the SPLA in Southern Kordofan State and South Blue Nile must be disarm or leave the States to borders of 1956, South-North.

    Arabs came by mistake and will be punishing them, because they made a lots of terrible things in Africa nation. These people in North Sudan should go to hell because they inhuman. Your criminal SAF started killing Nubian people and those refugees runs to save their lives when your troops going house to house and shooting people in presence of U.N. Staffers. The whole world have got the photos of mother killed with her children.

    The international community was not doing much to help the helpless Nubians victims of the Arab, there will be no peace in North sudan unless the islamic goverment in khartoum is uprooted if not the country should be redichomated. Darfur, south kordufan and southern blue nile will be one country. Sudan if not redivided, it will never be stable, the arabs in sudan are very bad people. They are not civilized like arab in jordon, lebanon and dubai. They are misled by their believes. Some terrorist international communities like china and russia support ethnic cleansing in the nuba mountains. All those who support the killings of our black African Sudanese nubians, darfurians and iggessinians will be doom to hell those people are the real ple of god, their history runs deep into the bible there’s no way you can defeat them i swear. Jubal nuba oyeee, igessena oyeee, darfur oyee.
