Sudanese PM Visits Conflictive Darfur for 1st Time

KHARTOUM – Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok visited North Darfur on Monday, his first official trip outside the capital since his appointment in August.

“My visit to Al-Fashir (North Darfur) today is the first of a series of trips to different states across Sudan,” Hamdok posted to his Twitter account.

“Born and raised in a rural area myself, I know that Sudan is much more than its center.”

“The priority of this visit is to listen to those who have been systematically marginalized and to explore concrete ways to achieve peace and economic stability,” he added.

Addressing displaced people in the al-Salam and Abu Shouk camps near al-Fashir, Hamdok vowed to meet their demands.

“Peace negotiations took place in closed rooms without taking into account the visions and ideas of the displaced and refugees, and therefore there was an incomplete peace that did not hold much,” he added.

Those allegedly responsible for the “genocides, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity” committed in Darfur should be handed over to the International Criminal Court, Mohamed Adam, in charge of the al-Salam and Abu Shouk camps said.

Among those officials, Adam said “the head of the previous regime,” referring to former president Omar al-Bashir, who was overthrown by the army after massive protests.

The interim government and Sudan Revolutionary Front signed a political declaration and a ceasefire agreement on 21 October.

Talks are to be resumed in Juba, Capital of South Sudan on 21 November.
