    I wonder the type of the color Khartoum Government is trying to galvanize on them. it’s very well known that they are the instigators of the fight and again turning condemnation of it. Can’t you realize that you are fooling yourselves and your notorious Part NCP? Waite for the hall that is waiting for your heads because of the daily mutilation of the indents soul in darfur.
    Safe journey to the hall bashir and your NCP.
