March 5, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – The governor of North Darfur, Osman Mohamed Yousif Kibir, has denied that the visit of president Omer Hassan al-Bashir to his state, scheduled for Wednesday, has been cancelled, saying that a new date will be determined later.

"I expect delaying the visit for a short period of time and not scrapping it," Kibir said without explaining the reasons for the rescheduling.

Heavy fighting broke out recently across Darfur between government troops and rebels on one side and between two Arab tribes over gold exploration rights.

Bashir was supposed to inaugurate several development projects in Taweesha locality and address his supporters there.

His visit would have coincided with the fourth anniversary of the warrant issued for him by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on ten counts of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. Sudan refuses to recognise the court’s jurisdiction calling it a western plot to overthrow the regime.

Human rights groups and the United Nations estimate the 300,000 people have died in the Darfur conflict overall. The government says around 10,000 people have been killed.

    Bashir’s vist to Darfur means more GENOCIDE plan again. Him and Kibir/Bassit are both close friends and criminals.

      year because they shouldn’t relay too much on the new dawn charter singed recently with different opposition group, this regime will not fall because of uprising it will fall because of military struggle, if SPLA in South doesn’t wage bitter war with them in South they couldn’t leave inch of land in South but after they taste the bitter of war they accept peace accord unwillingly

    JEM starts it’s operation so severely recently in darfur, that’s why he cautiously postponed his visit. He don’t want to get caught in cross fire. He was going to dance anyway, nothing new from this desert gay.
