Sudan may expel Darfur peacekeepers if Bashir indicted – Bona Malwal


July 25, 2008 (ADDIS ABABA) – A Sudanese Presidential Advisor threatened to expel the hybrid peacekeeping force from Darfur if President Omer al-Bashir is indicted of genocide and crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court.

"We are telling the world that with the indictment of our president al-Beshir we can’t be responsible for the well-being of foreign forces in Darfur," Beshir’s advisor Bona Malual told reporters in Addis Ababa.

"After that we may ask them to withdraw from our territory," he added.

The ICC’s prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo asked pre-trial judges lon Monday 14 July to issue arrest warrants for Sudanese president Omar Hassan Al-Bashir.

Ocampo filed 10 charges: three counts of genocide, five of crimes against humanity and two of murder. Judges are expected to take months to study the evidence before deciding whether to order Al-Bashir’s arrest.

"We reject this indictment totally," Malual said. "We will not submit our president to any kind of questioning or answering to a body Sudan is not part of."

A spokesman for the Sudanese foreign ministry denied that Khartoum had any intention of forcing peacekeepers to leave Darfur, suggesting that Malual could have been speaking out of turn.

"We are totally and strictly committed to our international obligations, particularly the UN Security Council resolution 1769. We will continue to co-operate with the African Union and the United Nations to make the hybrid operation a success," spokesman Ali al-Sadiq told AFP.

Reporting Malwal’s visit to Addis Ababa, the official SUNA avoided to make any mention to his statements about the expulsion of the Hybrid Mission from Darfur.

The Sudanese officials have reassured that the peacekeeping force would not be harmed by any retaliatory measures following the accusing of the Sudanese president by the ICC prosecutor.

Al-Bashir during his visit to El-Fasher two days ago visited the UN-AU mission and expressed his condolences to UNAMID over the death of seven peacekeepers killed earlier this month in North Darfur. He further pledged to provide the necessary protection for UNAMID staff and convoys.

Yesterday, some 126 members of the Egyptian Engineering Company arrived to Darfur joining 83 personnel already deployed in El Fasher on 7 June as part of the advanced team. Other Ethiopian troops are expected by the end of this month.

The United Nations and African Union aim to have some 26,000 peacekeepers in Darfur, but only 9,000 are on the ground.

      Both of them are traitors.Nothing to choose between these two senile traitors.
      They will remain with their Jellaba masters in 2011.

      Both De Chand & Bona Malual ’re after their own selves interest,they have a conflict of interest with southerners. One is after wealth and other is after disunity, if all these things fail they will come home. one thing we need to know, these fellow human beings ’re smart ,complex and most of all they ’re unpredictable to deal! but southerners need to take a calculated and organised approach to tame them I couldn’t believe Bona Malual would say what he did, it shows how he is out of touch with suffering people in Dafur, southern Sudan, and Eastern from despicable horror of this ruthless Al-Bashir’s regime that has inflicted unspeakable pain to the people in Sudan.
      I think the world has begun speaking the justice we been longing for,we would like to see mr.Al-Bashir to be in Hague and face the justice he denied to many people in the Sudan,let the justice continues Bona Malual, don’t stand in the way of justice!
      It’s unportunate to see somebody like Malual get carried away easily by the current.

      This is totally rubbish of Malwal.

      SPLM is getting the fruits of recruiting traitors into the system.

      By the way, what is going on in the SPLM leadership? Kiir Mayardit has a different view over terrorist Omer’s ICC indictment. Pagan has a different approach to the same case and now Malwal with a very bizarre declaration. What the hell are these people taking Southern Sudanese to? Tell us why you are not organized to give a uniform statement?

      With this disorganized system of leadership, we shall forget SPLM sooner than expected.

      Very surprising! One wonders when such personality like Bona Malual calls for expulsion of UN peace keepers in Darfur, if ’our president’ is indicted.Whose president Bashir is? He is just a northern Arab barbarics and jehadists president and not of all Sudanese. A man who has killed four millions Southerners and 35,000 Darfurians, thounds of Nubians and Funjs cannot be called "our" president,unless those are his secret backers. Bashir is president unto-self and his underdogs.
      For Bona and de Chand, no exception for both, because the latter is trying to divide Southerners and former is conspiring with the enemies of Southerners. It’s a great lose when these brains cannot benefit us!

      Both Bona, and Dr Riak Gai Kok are the most traitors an agend of northerners who never think about their own people in Southern Sudan. They are Bashir Babysiters. Professor De Chand is living in Nabraska, USA and he is Jelous and Selfish man. He is still Michael Wal Duany’s son in his mind

    Bona Malual is the most outrageous traitor, and the so-called Prof. of oral English is no better either. They are both the most dangerous traitors the Southern Sudanese must be careful dealing with them.They are guided by their stomachs and not the interest of any of us.

    Malual must know that Bashir will go to the Hague to answer those charges whether anybody likes or not. The language of al Qaeda used by Bona Malual will not stop the ICC to bring justice to Darfur. To hell with the terrorists, and to hell with the traitors like De Chand and Mulual. You’re all but cursed forever.

      There is no worry about these poor traitors.They are just crying for their plates.Bashir is a criminal and there is no way a law or justice will leave him. He will have to answer the charges.
      UN-AU forces in Darfur have nothing to do with the ICC they are for UN-Security council.Therefore then chasting them a way from Sudan-Darfur means Sudan has rejected UN-Security council.And that will be treated differently from the Darfur issue.
      Let these poor parasites of Bashir shut-up or else they will follow.

    Dear Malual,

    You proved beyond any reasonable doubt that you are part of group to be indicted if Beshir is to be set free.

    During the war period,you have been writing useless articles, speaking against our Movement and our late hero Dr. Garang in your hideout and I think July 30th was your happiest day of your life.

    Who are you to declare the expulsion of peace keeping forces in Sudan?
    I thought a man, tall like you should also should also think tall

    The Spoke man for the Sudanese Foreign Ministry has denied your unreasonable statement and said you were speaking out of turn

    “Muonyjang ace jam erurur eya “

        Mr.Malual, I wonder;Is that the way you advice Bashir? I hope it’s away just a way of wanting to pleased him otherwise chasing away peace keepers in Darfur will not prevent indictment of Bashir.

        You need to understand that ICC is an independent institution from UN or any body seeking forinternational favor like you and Bashir.

        Again,GONU has not been protecting peace keepers instead they fought by government troops so what sort of protection or well being of the UN peace keepers you talked about in Addis Ababa?

        Bashir is a good material for ICC whether you like or not.

        You will soon keep quite becoz the list is not finish may be some of you are since you are supporter of al Qaeda!

            South Sudan is a family of primitive elders. How many days is Mr Bona counting down to mark his existence on this planet? Why does he not reform like Gen. Paulino Matip Nhial who has realized his militiaism will bear no fruits? What a primitive elder!! Majakda, your statement is right in relation to Kiir and Pagan, not Bona Malual. He is a long term traitor, though he reformed, he still a traitor and deserve denial.

            Biar Ayuen Aguek.

              I am not shocked of anything Bona Malual may utter on any flat form. This man is programmatic, Bona would not care to what happen to Southern Sudan as long as he gets a biteor share is reserved.He has never been a people representative. All he cares about is to advance his interest at any cost, what a man!!!
              Bona has never suffered with the people of South Sudan he has always taped on oilly segment. Why should anyone be surprised? Shouldn’t we learn from the past? Why should Bona Care about the Durfuris people when didn’t even care about his own people the Dinka’s.
              Does anyone remember “Thend” Massacre where more then 3000 people were killed? Who benefited from it during Sadaq Al-Mahdi government?

                My dear brothers and sisters don’t be surprised by what was breathed out by this bona malwal yesterday. Mr. BAD MAD had never uttered a good statement for the benefits of non other than the Arabs in Khartoum. He had been stabbing southerners during the time of our war with the Arabs. To tell you people about him, he was employed by the Arabs in a capacity of school watchman and he then started learning while he was manning the school gate. Now he doesn’t even know that there is another good employer than the Arabs. Will you people blame him and dechand? That is how they survive. They don’t know that they can be given a better responsibility without being manipulated by others. If facts should be said then malwal is an outcast to bar el gazal, Dinka and south Sudan community in general. Malwal had never visited bar el gazal or south Sudan since the time war started. Imagine, he needed to be president in the south while he had not thrown even single stone during the struggle. The guy is greedy. He deserved to be a nuer instead of being a Dinka. Maybe his mother was a nuer concubine/luom and might have been born within the circle of that relationship. Another thing is this, malwal and dechand are both greed who cannot be stopped by anything even if it mean to sell the whole of Sudan for money. Take them this way, they are both educated and have money at their disposal yet they are not satisfied. They are too ashamed of what they did in the past to the whole of south that’s why they don’t want to come and confess in the south. They also don’t know that they can be forgiven by southerners. It’s said in English that in every community, “there always exists a mad man/men/woman/women” so the two are our mad men. The speech made bona yesterday will not have an effect on anything in Sudan. He is known to be a noise maker. Forget about him and his speech.

                  Dear Reuben Ngooth,

                  Fuelling tribalism will never bring unity to Southerners especially Dinkas and Nuers who always oppose each other because each one defending his/her tribes and leaving the truth behind. How dare You said that Bona Malual is supposed to be a Nuer instead of Dinkas. Do you reasonably believe that Nuers are they only people who’re traitor and act foolishly then Dinkas. To be honest with you, I’m a Dinka and by factual account, your irrational and naive comment totally disappointed me because of prefering Bona Malual to be Nuer instead of Dinka doesn’t make sense at all.

                  In fact, Bona Malual is a true Dinka traitor and whoever reject that will go to hell with him. Bona Malual is always known for his supportive of Arabs since the strungle due to the fact that he is working for his own personal interest. Whether Bona Malual believe it or not Beshir and those who are already summoned must to go to Hague in order to taste the justice for their wrong-doing in Darfur.
