June 22, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – Central Darfur governor, Jaffar Abdel Hakam, on Monday sacked a number of Salamat and Misseriya dignitaries from the leadership of their respective Native Administrations following the resumption of hostilities between the two sides last Saturday.

Abdel Hakam argued that the dismissed tribal leaders failed to curb violence and to implement reconciliation agreements previously signed by the two groups.

The governor warned in statements to the government sponsored SMC that he would take tough legal measures against those who are involved in any new fighting in his state.

He further stressed that the state government will devote its efforts to deal with the outlaws and root out the conflict between the Misseriya and Salamat through the activation of agreements concluded by the two tribes.

He also pointed to the existing cooperation and coordination between the authorities and native administrations to maintain security and stability.

Dozens of people were killed last Saturday from both sides when Misseriya gunmen raided a Salamat cattle camp in Muradaf at Um Dukhun county near the Chadian border.

A Salamat tribal leader blamed the security forces in the area saying they didn’t intervene to prevent the attack.

According to government reports, more than 1000 people were killed and over 500 wounded in a series of attacks and revenge attacks between the two Arab tribes over cattle theft .

The clashes also displaced thousands of people who fled into Chad, the state capital Zalingei, and the capital of South Darfur, Nyala.
