Release of 11 Sudanese abducted in North Darfur


January 26, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudanese authorities announced the release of 11workers abducted with four other Chinese workers in North Darfur on 12 January.

The government accused unidentified rebel group of abducting the 15 workers who were building El Fasher - Umm Kadada sector of Al-Ingaz Road near Khor Abeche area in North Darfur

The Sudanese engineer and 10 workers were released in good health at Al-Kuma, near Zam Zam village, located 17 kilometers south-west North Darfur’s capital, El Fasher.

The commissioner of Alkuma, Mohamed Suleiman Rabeh, who received the abductees, has pointed to the efforts North Darfur government had exerted to release the 4 Chinese and then the 11 Sudanese.

The families of the Sudanese workers urged the Sudanese authorities last week to ensure the release of their sons and wondered why only the Chinese had been freed.

The four Chinese had been release four days after their abduction and were handed to the UNAMOD peacekeepers on Wednesday 16 January.

Sudanese officials did not disclose the identity of the abductors and remained silent on the negotiations that led to a peaceful end of the kidnapping.

Since, the local authorities announced a series of measures to protect the workers of the Chinese companies working in the troubled state.

North Darfur State has witnessed unrest and a wave of tribal conflicts and clashes between the armed movements and the government forces.

    Were those Chinese workers, were working for rebel or the government? If, they were working for the government, why they were kidnapped? The government in Khartoum become the real gangs government. Khartoum now become a gang state.

    That’s what I said before, there is no rebel in Darfour but thugs and gangsters who get the support from the evil in the south to dismember Sudan to satisfy their hatred to north and satisfy their sick mentality!!
    Those gangsters are hurting the citizen of Darfour in the first place before hurting the central government in Khartoum when they stop the development in

      Darfour because the western Ingaz road is Darfourians people dream for more than 20 years, that road will change the face of life in Darfour from the root by connecting the remote areas in Darfour to the rest of Sudan till the Red Sea and now far north to Egypt, you probably know now that the road between Sudan-Egypt is done and ready to be opened in the coming March!

        This Ingaz road is not just important to Darfourians people but to all Sudanese people and it means a lot in terms of flourishing economy in Darfour and Sudan in general,maintaining security in Darfour,more importantly connecting west Africa to east Africa and then to Asia through the Red Sea!
        No matter what happens,we’ll never ever give up developing this road!

              Don’t worry about Sudan, everyday Sudan builds new road,new dam,new factory,new electricity plantation,etc but you need to concentrate in your south where your thieves built nothing at all but they built and developed hatred and conflicts between people in the south and stole a lot of money and moved the south to crap!!
