Leaders of Egypt and Libya flying to Sudan next week: report


December 16, 2010 (KHARTOUM) –The Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi will arrive in Khartoum next Monday for a summit with president Omer Hassan Al-Bashir and his First Vice President Salva Kiir, local media reported.

The mini-summit will tackle the challenges surrounding the South Sudan referendum slated for next January and arrangements should the country end up breaking up into two to ensure that the process runs smoothly.

Tensions are running high between North and South Sudan particularly after the end of the voter registration process. Bashir’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) said that the process was marred by violations and irregularities that need to be addressed by the referendum commission.

The Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) on the other hand accused the North of intimidating Southern voters so that they pick unity in the referendum.

There was no official confirmation of the visit by the Egyptian and Libyan leaders to Khartoum.

Relations between Sudan and Libya reached a low point after Tripoli asked Bashir to cancel his appearance at the Africa-EU summit they hosted last month.

The EU bloc had threatened to walk out if Bashir shows up as he is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes and genocide he allegedly orchestrated in Darfur.

Khartoum issued an angry statement afterwards directing explicit criticism at the EU and subtle one at Libya for succumbing to European pressure.

    Yes let them come but President Kiir should not get overshadowed by these regional figures. Stick with what Southern Sudanese stand for.

      Salva Kiir must not attend the so-called mini-summit. No one knows what is a "Donkey is pregnant with." This is another foulplay to take down Kiir. South Sudan must not trust anyone else. We must learn from Garang’s death in Museveni’s helicopter. Hosni and Gaddafi could be wolves dress in sheep clothing.

        If Hosni Mubarak come to guarantee his national interest over Nile Water and what about this crazy man so call Gaddafi.

          Those corrupts and power greedy leaders what do they want from Sudanese affairs? We don’t need anyone who is supporting unity to talks on Sudanese issue because we do see them as they are thogs and they do not know all the attrocties done in the South Sudan by NCP during the time of war and still all those problems are again on the way to be committed by the Northern Regiment since they have started bombading people here and there in the South. We need to seperates from Arab such that to creat our own stable State in Africa than to be staying at the hands of those notorous Arab.

      Mr. Bashir run out of capacity where his Arab brothers Egypt and Libya want to give him an option but that wouldn’t work. Look at them! Libya leader look like late pop singer Michael Jackson and Egypt leader look like a comedy Mr. Bean’ sorry to touch these peaceful famous known to all nations. If Salva Kiir want to attend their meeting that is up to him; but south still standing firmly for separation.

    President Kiir security needs to be beef up to the highest possible standard with seven to ten mobile light tanks or armoured jeeps and other several armuored vehicles mounted with Kord 12.7mm heavy machine guns to be deployed in Juba and Khartoum to accompany his convoy whenever he is travelling to Khartoum and within Juba till South Sudan is declared republic. Unnecessary travel for the president should be minimised and he can work from the state house in Juba. Unnecesssary travel within Juba should be minimised too.
    The enemy is looking for any opportunity to cause choas and distract Southern Sudan Referendum. Our enemies are not only in Khartoum but from other countries in North Africa and middle east. So be careful with those guys including those presidents from Egypt and Libya. They should pick Bashir from Khartoum and come to Juba so meet president Kiir here so that Libyan president might have a chance to see Juba and get the sense of why Southerners had been fighting for that long.
    South Sudanese have to be careful now till South Sudan is declared independent country.

      H.E. Salva Kiir:

      You are precious to southern sudan, and a leader that the south sudan can count on you.

      Stay away from implicit mini summit that needed to be conducted by Libya and Egpty in the north at this critical time.

    Dear readers
    The snakes of the Arab world are coming to Sudan for the sake of their own selfishness interests. Kirr has to watch them out carefully because Southern Sudan doesn’t need any help from Libya or Egypt, They are the most dictators of the century. President kirr should stay out from the summit until Hosni Mubarak and Gaddafi confess their bad plan about South Sudan secession.

      The authors of defunct Egyptian-Libyan peace initiative are now shaken by the wind of freedom, justice and independence that is steadily blowing across South Sudan. They are coming to conduct its funeral rites because the world is now clearly seeing the problem that has caused the death of millions of South Sudanese. To hell they should go because they are sinners. For they do not know that GOD IS LOVE. Secondly love your neighbour even if he is your enemy. That is exactly what Southerners are doing to their cousins Jallaba. They kill, bomb and yet they get the sweet dollars from our resource and take all the sovereign ministries. Now is the time to say Good Bye to Arabs.
