March 13, 2010 (DOHA) — The leader of Sudan Liberation Movement Abdel-Wahid Mohamed Nur has wasted a "historical" opportunity to join the peace talks and the accord signed in the Arab Gulf state of Qatar, the US special envoy to Sudan Scott Gration said today.

"He [Al-Nur] isolated himself and believe that he either does not want anything or does not know what he wants and we gave him a historical opportunity and extended many invitations to him but he has had his chance" Gration told reporters in a press conference at the US Ambassador’s residence in the Qatari capital.

Last month, the Sudanese government and the Darfur Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) signed a temporary ceasefire and a framework agreement in Doha paving the way for direct negotiations and a comprehensive peace accord.

While JEM is considered a militarily strong group, observers say that the absence of Al-Nur who belongs to the Fur tribe, considered the largest in Darfur, will mean that any peace agreement signed will not end the conflict. He enjoys wide support among Darfur’s IDP’s.

Al-Nur’s persistent demands for security in Darfur as a prerequisite for sitting at the negotiation table has frustrated diplomats and mediators alike. Gration has sought to convince loyal IDP’s and SLM field commanders to overthrow him but was met with stiff resistance.

Gration said that the Doha accord marked a turning point for a resolution to the seven years conflict and called on both sides to "strictly" abide by it through the cessation of hostilities and violence so as start working on issues such as compensations, return of IDP’s to their homes, development projects in order to combat unemployment and improve the socio-economic lives of Darfuris.

The US official said that the compensation thorny issue will be determined through the participation of civil society and refugees in the peace agreement adding that he does not see any major obstacles preventing the implementation of the accord.

Furthermore, the envoy expressed hope that the agreements are done early so they can move into the implementation phase… “So that the people begin as soon as possible to experience peace and security and move on with their lives… we want this to happen now, the sooner the better, because they need to live in better conditions.”

He stressed that Washington is working for the people of Darfur and help Sudanese people expressing their wills through peaceful means such as elections. On Chad-Sudan relations he said that recent thaw between the two countries will reflect positively on the region’s security.

"We are pleased with what has been achieved on better ties between the two countries to ensure stability across the border between this building and reconciliation that would benefit the two peoples and the region as a whole and hopefully the continuation of this matter for the maintenance of regional security and stability and to promote peace in Darfur" Gration said.

Gration praised the Qatari role in brokering the recent deal saying that without Doha’s “tremendous efforts, which not only helped the negotiations, but also their efforts to unite the rebel groups to bring members of civil society here to do requisite training goes far beyond just negotiations, they have actually been wonderful in picking up tasks far beyond what is required as a facilitator…”

On elections, Gration said that the US administration is looking forward to having the “big election” in Sudan this April.

“This election is the first time in 24 years that the people in Sudan can express their will through the ballot and I think this is very important, because the process that are put into place now, the political transformation, the democratization that is happening right now might set the future generation a way of expressing their will through the ballot and not the bullet” he said.

He said he believes that the elections should be held as planned despite growing demands from the Sudanese opposition that they be delayed till next November.

    All these agreements are temporary pain killers for the Sudanese problems, from Nivasha to Abuja to Doha. What every people agree on for one place should be inclusive and implemented for the whole country, if the government decides to give the south a high autonomy status and share resources revenues, then they should give the same rights for all of Sudan. Solutions should not be confined to the people who take the guns only, yesterday it was the south, today its Darfur and tomorrow will be the east and the north plus the likelihood of a regional war between north and south after separation. Most of the people in the peripheries of the country suffer from similar problems.

      Akol addressing a political meeting

      The former foreign minister, who splint from the SPLM and established his own party in June 2009, was banned by the southern Sudan government from exercising his political activities in the South. But the Constitutional said illegal GOSS decision in this respect.

      Salva Kiir, SPLM candidate for southern Sudan government president, recently pledged to allow his sole contender to campaign freely in the semi-autonomous region.

      Two week ago Akol launched his electoral campaign in Malakal, capital of Upper Nile State, where he pledged if elected President of Southern Sudan Government to curb corruption, promote democratic freedoms economic development in the region.

      In a first meeting organized in the capital of southern Sudan, on Saturday, Akol repeated his pledge to fight corruption in Juba if elected president for GOSS saying "Corruption has defeated people in the government. That is why it needs new people".

      "We have been faced with unconstitutional bans and threats against our members," he further said.

      The SPLM DC accused regularly the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) of intimidating and arresting its members in the different states the South.

      Despite its young age, the SPLM DC has 120 candidates in southern Sudan and 500 candidates in the north besides three candidates for governorship positions and Lam Akol for southern Sudan president.

      On the national level, the SPLM-DC supports NCP candidate Omer Al-Bashir saying he is the sole who will respect southern Sudanese vote if they opt for independence in 2011 referendum.

      Lam Akol launches his campaign for South Sudan president in Juba 14 March 11:54, by SPLA

      Mr Famous Big_Liar_Boy,

      Let me assure you one thing, traitor Lam Akol will not win the presidency of South Sudan in up coming April elections. If you put your hopes on the presidency of Lam Akol then you better think again because it will not happen. You and those who subscribe to Lam Akol political ideals have no future in South Sudan. You better get used to SPLM or move some where else because SPLM is not going anywhere for the rest of our lives.

      Kiir Mayardit will still be the president after April 11 and for the next five years. Kuol Manyang will also still be the governor of Jonglei State and he will be the next president of South Sudan after Kiir Mayardit. Forget about the two traitors and the dumbest PHD holders Lam Akol and Riek Machar. Their names will never appear in the history of South Sudan as presidents. They will always be known as traitors and the ones who stubbed the SPLM/A in the back when the movement was at its best.

    Scott Gration is rushing peace for the sake of one without looking at the behavior of Khartoum regime. Al-Nur is like Dr. John Garang. He did not rush into signing a peace that Khartoum would surely not implement or worst abrogate. The US needs to really consider reigning in Scott Gration before it loses credibility among the Sudanese people. Whenever this guy opens his mouth, you just crinch.

    Al-Nur has seen what Khartoum does with peace agreements. DPA is now a shell of what was signed. Minawi is just holding on to his post and not much has changed in Darfur. Violence has subsided but that is because ICC has shown its teeth and indicted genocidaires in Darfur. So why would Al-Nur rush into signing a peace just to see it dishonored like all others?

    Al-Nur’s persistent demands for security in Darfur as a prerequisite for sitting at the negotiation table is very much valid. Of course, Gen. Gration and the other Darfur peace mediators are furstrated for the simple fact that they are either do not understand the conflict of Darfur or turning a blind eye to it.
    For Gen. Gration:
    Do understand the word "GENOCIDE", despited your own country’s repeatedly labeling of genocide on what is happening in Darfur? Do you know how many villages burnt or destroyed? A part from lives, Did you ever estimate how much the loss in region of Darfur would be? How can you convince the victim that you genuinely work for peace while the victim is being chased as you gather concerned parties to negotiating table.
    Please, level up to the scale of the damage done in Darfur. The entire region is plunge in misery, gruesome and greivances.
    Unless you be in the shoes of the IDPs or Refugee, Gen.Gration, you and other Darfur peace brokers will remain far from reaching peace in Darfur.

    If the IDPs and refugees are those who are meant by peace, how will you be able to return them to their vilages. Mr. General, are you going to use force to relocated them from camps to their villages.

    A number of things Mr. General you should undersand:
    the IDPs and refugees will not compromise on returning to their vilages,security and disarm of Janjaweeds,individual compensations and expeling of new settlers among many other demands.
    Doha will not bring peace to Darfur neither will any country in the region.
    Darfur conflict needs to:
    1. Be seen the way it is then deal with it.
    2. Consider the root causes of the conflict and address it.
    3. avoid presenting fake justifications to for peace.

    Darfur wound will take time to heal and the IDPs and refugees are prepared for it, Mr. General.

      I think thr Americans know very well wheather there is genocide or not.They are the inventers of the term!They know exactely the number of people who died and not the number inflated by the NGO’S!

      A/wahid is not doing any good to the IDP’S ,by enjoing his life in the hotels of Paris.For how long does he want them to stay? People are fed up with insecurity and want to go to their homes and live their own life.

      That A/wahid is popular among the fur is a fallacy.This is absolutely not true and he has no big forces on the ground.The main reason why he doesn’t want to join the peace process,is that he doesn’t want people to see his true "popularity"!

        Are you gone nuts Scot Gration? you are talking as if you are the one who inspired Wahid to rebel against the central governemnt in Khartoum. Moreover; you did not create him like Abdalla Khalil the head of your SLM faction. Wahid never consulted you to rebel so that you can give him opportunities. Zoeleck your friend was also speaking with full mouth, he never hesitate to threaten Wahid like you do today. But he also went, his adminstartion went and the problem of Darfur is still there. Gration; because you are blind folded you will go until and wise American will come; with the common understabding between them and people of Darfur, then they will heal remainants of the genocide as you have said.
        I am sure that you are much frustrated for failing on your mission. You failed because your behaved politician more than military man where you have experinece. The unplatable fact is that your second retirement is waiting for you my friend. Ask NCP to pay you your dues to work on bussiness beofre they are kicked on power by the pissed off Sudanese.

        Lam Akol launches his campaign for South Sudan president in Juba

        March 13, 2010 (JUBA) – The leader of SPLM-Democratic Change, Lam Akol, launched today his campaign in Juba for Southern Sudan president accusing Kiir’s administration of failure and promised to end corruption there.

        Akol addressing a political meeting

        The former foreign minister, who splint from the SPLM and established his own party in June 2009, was banned by the southern Sudan government from exercising his political activities in the South. But the Constitutional said illegal GOSS decision in this respect.

        Salva Kiir, SPLM candidate for southern Sudan government president, recently pledged to allow his sole contender to campaign freely in the semi-autonomous region.

        Two week ago Akol launched his electoral campaign in Malakal, capital of Upper Nile State, where he pledged if elected President of Southern Sudan Government to curb corruption, promote democratic freedoms economic development in the region.

        In a first meeting organized in the capital of southern Sudan, on Saturday, Akol repeated his pledge to fight corruption in Juba if elected president for GOSS saying "Corruption has defeated people in the government. That is why it needs new people".

        "We have been faced with unconstitutional bans and threats against our members," he further said.

        The SPLM DC accused regularly the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) of intimidating and arresting its members in the different states the South.

        Despite its young age, the SPLM DC has 120 candidates in southern Sudan and 500 candidates in the north besides three candidates for governorship positions and Lam Akol for southern Sudan president.

        On the national level, the SPLM-DC supports NCP candidate Omer Al-Bashir saying he is the sole who will respect southern Sudanese vote if they opt for independence in 2011 referendum.

Akol as a brave man has come out to tell the truth here in this democratic city of Juba. A man of courage and vision is this intelligent dream leader. Time for Kiir to pack his corruptees and find their way to Bor or Rembek in order to join his counterpart Mr Koul Juuk. SPLA has totally fail the political management of South. It is time for Democratic Change to take over and improve the worse condition. I have been waiting for this report to appear on the media, I always carry DC poster on my 4wheel around the corners in Juba due to insecurity, tomorrow I will have it on my car displaying it to the public. Freedom is coming to my people as soon as Akol become our leader.

        Lam Akol launches his campaign for South Sudan president in Juba 14 March 11:54, by SPLA

        Mr Famous Big_Liar_Boy,

        Let me assure you one thing, traitor Lam Akol will not win the presidency of South Sudan in up coming April elections. If you put your hopes on the presidency of Lam Akol then you better think again because it will not happen. You and those who subscribe to Lam Akol political ideals have no future in South Sudan. You better get used to SPLM or move some where else because SPLM is not going anywhere for the rest of our lives.

        Kiir Mayardit will still be the president after April 11 and for the next five years. Kuol Manyang will also still be the governor of Jonglei State and he will be the next president of South Sudan after Kiir Mayardit. Forget about the two traitors and the dumbest PHD holders Lam Akol and Riek Machar. Their names will never appear in the history of South Sudan as presidents. They will always be known as traitors and the ones who stubbed the SPLM/A in the back when the movement was at its best.

      Mr Famous Big_Liar_Boy,

      Let me assure you one thing, traitor Lam Akol will not win the presidency of South Sudan in up coming April elections. If you put your hopes on the presidency of Lam Akol then you better think again because it will not happen. You and those who subscribe to Lam Akol political ideals have no future in South Sudan. You better get used to SPLM or move some where else because SPLM is not going anywhere for the rest of our lives.

      Kiir Mayardit will still be the president after April 11 and for the next five years. Kuol Manyang will also still be the governor of Jonglei State and he will be the next president of South Sudan after Kiir Mayardit. Forget about the two traitors and the dumbest PHD holders Lam Akol and Riek Machar. Their names will never appear in the history of South Sudan as presidents. They will always be known as traitors and the ones who stubbed the SPLM/A in the back when the movement was at its best.

      Security man Mohamed Ali you again ask me. The people of Darfur die not because Abdul Wahid is in Paris; but because Wad Al Jaal the wanted Bashir is killing them. I think logically no reason to continue killing people because Wahid is in Paris. So please use your reasons, otherwise you are defending your Jalabi father in law Bashir.

        I think the rebillion was started by A/Wahid.Even if you said is right, does that stop the killing of Darfurians?It may quench your hatred that towards Jalaba, Jaleen, Mondocorrow or whatever, but it doesn’t stop the killing,misery and suffering of Darfurian!

        Hatred is venomous!

    It is really a pity that the SPLM/A has renounced it’s responsibility to the Sudan and the Sudanese people.Lord have mercy on your soul Dr.Joh Garang,Lord Have Mercy on Your Soul,honourable man of vision,you saw all this and wanted a solution.How much we miss your vision,your leadership to-day.
    The Movement you founded for the future now has to wait for the future to restore it to track.
    It has withdrawn into itself and sees achievment in voting for the past.
    This is a prayer of a sad Sudanese.
    The SPLM/A has withdrawn inot the South,the referandum and independence,a new state,but do we ever think of how this state will survive,with all these surrounding problems?

    I agree with the US envoy that Al Nur has yet to identify what the SLM wants, Also it is not a very good idea to live in Europe while you are a rebel leader, it damages Al Nur credibility, because Al Nur is having a good time in Europe, sleeping well, eating well meanwhile those in the battle field are having it rough. however, they should make their demands very clear and known, they should also say how those demands should be met, however the government has to also give consessions not just dig themselves down to one position, they have to be flexible on all sides.

So what do you expect from us Africans who suffered under your dictatorship for almost fifty five years, where all kinds of humilations are praticed on us begining with South Sudan, Blue Nile, Nuba Mountains and ending in Eastern Sudan with Hadandawa. I say you go to hell and those who think that they can keep the status coup go to hell. I say either you change your behavors or be send back to Saudia Arabia where you came. its not a joke take it seriously I am telling you.

      The hate you are talking about it; is the only thing that we learn it from you. For example: you are Wad Arab why do you behave like that! because any Arab never make mistake only the black Abeed who commit mistakes. Don’t I hope you to be brave and admit all these kind of humailation on us. So what do you wnat me to do to kiss your ass or what?

        Who are you to say that we not Africans? Who told you we are ruling you for fifty years?Who told you that we came from Saudi Arabia?

        It is you who should change that mentality of that we are not Africans.You should bear in your mind that no power on earth can uproot us from the land of our fathers and grand, grand fatehrs.

        This is a brain wash which the white had installed in your brain, and you are just repeating it in a parrot fashion!Arabs had never invaded Sudan.The first two states in the present borders of Sudan were established by strictly AFRICANS.The first one was in Sennar "the funj sultanate" or Al sultana alzarga "BLACK SULTANAT.This was the first Islamic state in Sudan.It speaks ARABIC, and these are the people of Malik Agar.Ethinically they may be related to the shuluk.it was established in 1504 AD.We are very very proud of Sinnar (Alsultana Alzarga) The second was Darfur sultanat ,it was strictly African, it was Islamic and used Arabic as well.But there were no Arab invaders who entered Sudan and established their state,to force religon or language upon the people of Sudan.They entered Sudan as individual groups ,not as an Army.They mixed with the local as human with human.There was no Arab state to impose Arabic or Islam on Africans.It was not like the white man when he invaded Africa with it’s mighty army,looted the countries resources, established apartheid system, confiscated the fertile land and gave it to the white-man invader, and they imposed their religon, language and culture!

        The Beja or the hadandwa are the first people of Arabic origon who entered Sudan in the 1-2 century AD, they were called the Blemmys.Arabs are very close to Africa since the begining of humanity, they are close both geografically and genetically.They mixed with all Africans , particulary east AFRICA, from Sudan to Mozambique.Even mozambique is an Arab name, without a state( Mousa bin Mbaik) Swahili language is a mixture of local African languages and Arabic.It is spoken by all of east Africa.This natural human civilization interaction was stopped when the white man invaded and enslaved Africa and sowed the seeds of division,hatred and apartheid, while imposing it’s culture, religion and language!

    The former foreign minister, who splint from the SPLM and established his own party in June 2009, was banned by the southern Sudan government from exercising his political activities in the South. But the Constitutional said illegal GOSS decision in this respect.

    Salva Kiir, SPLM candidate for southern Sudan government president, recently pledged to allow his sole contender to campaign freely in the semi-autonomous region.

    Two week ago Akol launched his electoral campaign in Malakal, capital of Upper Nile State, where he pledged if elected President of Southern Sudan Government to curb corruption, promote democratic freedoms economic development in the region.

    In a first meeting organized in the capital of southern Sudan, on Saturday, Akol repeated his pledge to fight corruption in Juba if elected president for GOSS saying "Corruption has defeated people in the government. That is why it needs new people".

    "We have been faced with unconstitutional bans and threats against our members," he further said.

    The SPLM DC accused regularly the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) of intimidating and arresting its members in the different states the South.

    Despite its young age, the SPLM DC has 120 candidates in southern Sudan and 500 candidates in the north besides three candidates for governorship positions and Lam Akol for southern Sudan president.

    On the national level, the SPLM-DC supports NCP candidate Omer Al-Bashir saying he is the sole who will respect southern Sudanese vote if they opt for independence in 2011 referendum.

    This is what I have been waiting for, AKOL OYEE, DC OYEE. Time to change the way we been lead, the way we been ruled and left to insecurity. Akol as a brave man has come out to tell the truth here in this democratic city of Juba. A man of courage and vision is this intelligent dream leader. Time for Kiir to pack his corruptees and find their way to Bor or Rembek in order to join his counterpart Mr Koul Juuk. SPLA has totally fail the political management of South. It is time for Democratic Change to take over and improve the worse condition. I have been waiting for this report to appear on the media, I always carry DC poster on my 4wheel around the corners in Juba due to insecurity, tomorrow I will have it on my car displaying it to the public. Freedom is coming to my people as soon as Akol become our leader.

    Mr Famous Big_Liar_Boy,

    Let me assure you one thing, traitor Lam Akol will not win the presidency of South Sudan in up coming April elections. If you put your hopes on the presidency of Lam Akol then you better think again because it will not happen. You and those who subscribe to Lam Akol political ideals have no future in South Sudan. You better get used to SPLM or move some where else because SPLM is not going anywhere for the rest of our lives.

    Kiir Mayardit will still be the president after April 11 and for the next five years. Kuol Manyang will also still be the governor of Jonglei State and he will be the next president of South Sudan after Kiir Mayardit. Forget about the two traitors and the dumbest PHD holders Lam Akol and Riek Machar. Their names will never appear in the history of South Sudan as presidents. They will always be known as traitors and the ones who stubbed the SPLM/A in the back when the movement was at its best.
