October 12, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — Sudanese regular and paramilitary forces Friday staged a military parade in Kadugli, capital of the troubled South Kordfan State in a show of force, days after a rebel mortar attack on the town.

The rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) shelled Kadugli on Monday and Tuesday. They said that the attack was part of a new tactic aiming to export the war to the government controlled areas and to stop the continued air raids of the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF).

However, the sporadic shelling, which hit different parts of the town, are reported to have killed six civilians and wounded some 23 people.

The artillery and tanks of the Sudan Armed Forces, police members, and the militia of Popular Defence Forces (PDF) paraded in the streets of Kadugli while military helicopters simultaneously flew over the town on Friday.

Speaking to the troops participating in the parade, South Kordofan Governor Ahmed Haroun, said they extend their hands to those who want peace but are also ready for war with anyone attack them.

The Governor also repeated that the SPLM-N shelled the town because of a consultative conference for peace in South Kordofan organised in Kadugli on 8 and 9 October .

"SPLM-Northern sector wanted to send a message saying ’We are here’; but unfortunately this message came on the bodies of women and children," he said.

The SPLM-N deny the shells were targeting the conference.

In an interview with a private Sudanese TV channel Ashorooq on Thursday, Haroun said the attack did not affect the activities of the town’s residents.

He added that the SPLM-N, after Sudan’s signing of cooperation deals with the South Sudan, "became an orphan" who faces unknown destiny stressing they wanted through the attack to send a message without a future.

He went further to say that the SPLM-N has no other choice but to sit on the negotiating table with the government.

Khartoum says the SPLM-N have first to disarm before the governing National Congress Party will discuss and negotiate over the unimplemented issues in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement related to the Blue Nile and South Kordofan.

The African Union mediation failed to organise direct talks between the sides because the SPLM-N demand that any future talks are a comprehensive process including the three Darfur rebels with whom the SPLM-N formed an alliance with last year.

    The Fake Governor Haroun’s head must be brought to Addis Ababa in order for Khartoum to accept negotiation. Haroun is the bad disease of South Kordufan people, he and his family must be uprooted so that our African brothers can get breathing space. This offender Slave must be remove!!!

          Mohammed Ali, you are the one who does not read what is happening in Khartoum. Did you hear in Juba we are selling out our young men to Liyba like what is happening in Khartoum. Tell me what is GATHA JAMAR ? Again, we are talking here about this fake parade in South Kordofan’s capital, but you want to change it to be Juba. Nice try, but no one will buy it.

          Every time a country demonstrates a show of force; probably they are scare to death. Any capable country out there knows they are; and the point of showing force is always irrelevant. To Ali, what is happing in Juba is your usual game you normally play against South Sudan. It’s an old trick in the book; no one take it serious anymore.

          M.A I hate stupidity,however,the concept of military parades is a thing from the colonial era when it used to show the oppressed ppl how powerful they were,so nobody dares to blink an eye, this fugitive Haroun is the last one on earth to talk a bout killing women & children he thinks ppl 4get what he did in D. or in this very same city Kadugli just a year ago when he carried out asystamic killing

              We the SPLA know what force and fire is. Those demonstrating or parading in Kaduguli do not perhaps know what we did to those who paraded on the way to Torit, Kaya and Nimule roads. What did we teach the army of 10 to 30 ths men. We eliminated or or contained them in fox holes. And where is the Mujahideen who landed in Juba thos days? It is farce by the NCP

        These pussycats (SAF) are only parading what will soon belong to SPLA-N as has been the case for decades previous with the SPLA! Its just sad that these young men will soon be decomposed bodies on the battlefield. NCP can stop this by disbanding their regime and militia. RETARDS.
