Libya’s Gaddafi fomented trouble in Sudan, spy chief


January 30, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – The director of Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) Mohamed Atta Abbas al-Moula accused the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi of being responsible for all the crises Sudan faced over the years.

At a joint press conference with leaders of Libya’s southern city of Kufra who are currently visiting Khartoum, al-Moula defended Khartoum’s support to the Libyan revolution against Gaddafi which broke out in early 2011.

"When we sent our boys to you and met with you in Khartoum [during the revolution] we were driven by the wishes and aspirations of the Sudanese people," al-Moula said adding that the Libyan people had a just cause and that they demonstrated courage and determination to win.

The spy chief went on to say that Gaddafi had worked to split up Sudan by inciting strife and partisanship.

"Every day Gaddafi’s government sent us a problem and a crime," the NISS director said.

Al-Moula called on the Libyan people to rise above their differences by uniting and repairing the social fabric to build their country stressing that this will reflect positively on Sudan.

Al-Kufra’s local assembly chief Mohammed Hamad Abu-Sedina concurred with the Sudanese official on Gaddafi’s unhelpful role and announced that they signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Sudan’s Northern state on several issues.

The delegation awarded al-Moula and other NISS officials certificates of gratitude along with other memorabilia. They intend to meet president Omer Hassan al-Bashir in the coming days.

The UK-based Daily Telegraph reported in July 2011 that the Sudanese army controlled Kufra citing British officials monitoring the no-fly zone enforced by NATO over Libya. This was denied by Khartoum at the time.

Following the demise of Gaddafi’s regime in late 2011 Khartoum disclosed its role in arming and supporting the Libyan rebels while slamming the previous regime "conspiracies" against Sudan particularly in Darfur.

    Sudan NIF hpycrocy. NIF in Sudan is first hand trouble maker. They r sponsoring Somalian divisions n long running crises since 1993. They train jahidists n sent them there. NIF of Khartoum caused big trouble 2 Chad in 2006 - 2007 till France had 2 repel rebels then. NIF Sudan is in Syrian crises till today. NIF was in Iraq, Afghan n Ugandan as sponsor of everything! It is today in Mali. All in one

      Hey akode
      You forgot to mention the moon and Mars. I am sure Sudan has a hand in there too.

    Sudan’s relationship with neighboring countries has never been better thanks to the revolutions in Egypt and Libya. Now we only need to secure our southern borders and no doubt we will do that thanks to the mighty SAF until the long due revolution of south sudan is a reality.

      Pif paf,
      Why you keep fooling yourself? Which revolution are you talking about? There is no longer anything called revolution of the South. Try first of all to protect yourself from the SPLM - minors, the SPLM-N. Sudan failed to contain the united Sudan crisis; eventually allowing the South to go free and dwindling amidst a failing economy and malignant rebellions in Darfur, B.Nile and S.Kordofan

      Ya Pif-Paf,
      If you’re thanking the revolution that took place in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and now Syria, then I believe you would do the same to the upcoming revolution in Khartoum. Be part and parcel of it without fail. Don’t worry about N-S border, worry about the explosive partition of the remaining North Sudan. OK?

      If what the Director of NISS saying is true about the late Libyan President, then why did Khartoum do the same thing to South Sudan and is still doing it through David Yau Yau and other Khartoum-sponsored militia leaders? The war against Gadhaffi was about freedom, and so the war in Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile. Is freedom good only for the people in Libya?

        These folks are hypocryts.. when Gadafi was alive, they were friends in fighting ss. we captured lybian fighter jet in Lafon because sudan was usinging foreign army to fight us. today is the same. too bad, they stirred trouble in Mali, Algeria, Somalia, Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, Chad and Congo.
        Only SS will teach them a lesson. Bravo Salva Kiir, mighty SPLA, there is more to come

    It’s doesn’t make sense blaming a dead person. I believe no North Sudanese NCP official, dead or alive dared to condemn Gadaffi when he was alive. The opposite is clear, it’s North Sudanese who need redemption from NCP Thugs instead of Libyans who are currently regretting having conspired against their country by collaborating with Gadaff’s enemies. Libyans had better living standard in Middle Eas

      You are right.. In fact our leaders here welcomed Gadaffi when he visited Khartoum and fell all over him.
      They also welcomed the building of what we locals called the Gadaffi Towers- a hotel that was built on Nile Street and was frequented often by government officials at functions etc.
      Funny how history can be changed to reflect what suits politics the best
