Chinese firm given land deal in Sudan


March 16, 2010 (KHARTOUM) – The Chinese company ZTE received an allocation of approximately 10,000 hectares of land from the Ministry of Agriculture. The deal aims at boosting production of wheat and maize, state media reported.

ZTE is a technology company but it has invested agriculture in Sudan, Ethiopia and elsewhere in Africa.

Last June the company signed two memoranda of understanding with the Sudanese government, agreeing to establish a fodder factory, remove mesquite trees in Gezira state, cultivate oil seeds in White Nile state, and invest in agriculture in Khartoum state.

A visiting Chinese delegation that included senior agriculture experts was received by Minister of Agriculture Dr. Abdul Halim Ismail Al-Mutaafie on Monday, the official Sudan News Agency (SUNA) reported Monday.

The Chinese visited "many relevant agricultural sites," according SUNA, as well as a technology center that they had established in Al-Fau area and the site of the Chinese company in Northern State.

"The Chinese company was given the agricultural lands in the framework of the joint cooperation between the two countries in the agricultural field toward moving from the stage of successful agricultural experiences to the stage of commercial production, especially in the field of wheat and maize cultivation," stated SUNA.

China is Sudan’s largest trading partner.

    Now, giving Sudan land to China is another way of enhancing the South to separate. Good luck, please North should not strain Chinese to come to the South land. Anyway, Nuer land is available for sale when they receive food from Arab and that really scare me because Nuer follows food where it is present,no matter what. They are food lovers in the South.

      There is nobody who doesn’t love food,including Dinka, who are great people, the same as Neuer!I am sure that the GOSS will welcome any investor to come and invest in thr South.Every country willing to progress would love to do that!

      Tis message is from a very big food lover!

        Dinkas are the most food lovers,they files themselves in James Wani Igga’s house because of food when you go to Igga house you may think that,all Dinkas have left their villages. by seeing them you get to know that,they are there to get food from Igga.
        I know Igga will have to employ camp manager to manage them.

        take care Igga,you may spend more than you earn.

        Mohamed Ali,

        i was not joking dear. everybody know Nuer very well as food lovers. Omer Bashier knows them and we all South tribes knows them as well.
        See, Bashier said that I usually give Nuer food to solve my problem. It is true dear because that is what Bashier has been doing when he bribe them to stabbed SPLM at the back from 1991 upto the signing of the North-South war. Bashier is right because Nuer solve his problem and that is why we SPLA retreat from Juba deployment to respond to them which make them run crazy like birds.

        The food, just indirect dear. the like indirect food( bribe). Don,t you see bashier still arm Nuer militia to destabilized the south.

        Bashier employed Paulino Matip in ever since to guide the oil station with Northern Forces. Is that no the way Bashier solve his problem?
        Riek Machar sign oil exploitation and exploration in Unity state with Bashier, and Arab North has the access to oil during their defection. Is that not the way Bashier solve his own problem.

        Bashier and Riek joined their forces in Ayod, Jokou, Nasir, Mayom and many Nuer areas against SPLM.Is that not the way Bashier has solved his problem as well.
        Bashier governmnet armed riek Gai and Tanganyang to fought and killed civilians in the South in 2009. Is that not the way Bashier governmnet solve his problem through employing Nuer.

        Please just learned from the above references that Nuer are food lovers in the South and that was the reason Bashier said before without Dinka, i would have dragged the other tribe especially Nuer by pouring Sugan start from the South to Khartoum to finally compile them in the North. Is that not the way Bashier not knowing food lovers in the South. Fact must be told dear.

          slave Dinka,

          Who do you think doesn’t know you Dinka? Europeans recently bought your kids that you sold to our Arab brothers in Northern Sudan for food. This is a fact as late Garang (God burn his ugly soul in hell, though you already did it during the helicopter crash) and Bona Malual Madut Ring quarrel over Dinka slave redemption money.

          You are now still selling your kids to Nuers for food and later claim that Nuers abduct them, which is a lie.

          Dinka (Jaang which means slave in Thoknaath, the Nuer language) are lazy coward food loving dogs who resent Nuers for their hard work and bravery and the enslavement humiliations that Nuers have been subjecting them for centuries.

          To us Nuers, a Dinka is just a potential lazy coward slave who don’t deserve our attention at all.

        In Khartoum Arabs start mingling up with Chinese, go to Shuk al arabi Buses Stations, you can see Arab-Chinese ( mixed generations of 2000 AD up to Today) selling silly goods, speak Arabic which was not there before 2000 AD.
        Worst of all, in one Governmental Ministry Department , Sudanese Arab- Chinese was officially appointed head of Department. With small eyes and round face, he asked me , Are U you a Sudanese? Yes and U, I replied, what do think i am, was his answer, and conversation went on.

        Guys by Mistake, secrete linked out here in Khartoum which says, group of Chinese Tribe will be relocated to Sudan after some arrangements are meet, may have started with giving land for Investment which is false, intention is not Investment.

          to Hillary B.M.L,M

          Stop insulting other human Race.
          Chinese are no different from any human.
          Can you say that Blacks can not Marry Whites?
          If you say Yes, then you are the Worse Racist in the world and you need to be re-educate. Remember Discrimination is a crime against humanity and you need to respect other human race regardless of how they look, Black, pink, white, tall, short, male female shouldn’t be of any hurdle.
          Welcome to the diverse World. Todays’ World is more Diverse than ever before and you need to appreciate it because it is good for all.
