Sudan declares general mobilisation after Heglig clash


April 11, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — Sudan’s parliament declared a general mobilisation to recruit people into its army and paramilitaries across the country after the seizure of an oil rich area in South Kordofan yesterday by the South Sudan army.

Sudan’s parliament.

The decision was taken in an extraordinary session of the two houses (the National Assembly and the Council of States) after being briefed by the Sudanese Defence Minister Abdel-Rahim Hussein.

Hussein vowed to repulse South Sudanese troops and Sudanese rebels who, according to the minister, participated in the attack.

The parliament also decided to withdraw its negotiating delegation and to stop talks brokered by an African Union panel to settle a number of issues between the two countries since the independence of South Sudan last July.

The atmosphere in the Sudanese capital is charged with tension and preparation for war, a resident told Sudan Tribune from Khartoum.

    Hey Sudanese and South Sudanese this is not the right approach that you are taking. Can somebody out there tell Juba and Khartoum that war is costly and peace is cheaper!! There are already Chinese trucks in Mombasa for army use when we don’t have medicine and hunger is looming. Stop this madness of war with the mad dogs in Khartoum!!

    • 11 April 2012 14:54, by Robot

      Who will they mobilize?, southerners if recruited by force will come and join their brothers, Darfurians are there fighting for their rights, Blue Nile and SK are also fighting for their right, i wonder unless the MPS which were to form a battalion!!!!!, worse will happen if they don’t change their attitudes, SPLA is ready.

      • 11 April 2012 15:19, by Corrector

        They’re 35 million sudanese people after ignoring darfur and other areas that are in conflict. If they just walk to juba they would win the war. Stop with the cowards dreams. Its about to get ugly.

        • 11 April 2012 16:56, by zulu

          That is an assumption of a fan. However, not all Sudanese are with the NCP. Darfur, SK, NMts, Blue Nile, excluding, the four major cities are not with the NCP. Let alone the opposition. Who does the NCP have to back them to go to war? Evrybody is angry because of intimidation and it is time the NCP quit power so south sudan and sudan live harmonuosely, side by side to gain economically

          • 11 April 2012 17:05, by Corrector

            You don’t understand the problem. This war created a legitimate reason for this regime that nobody wants to continue. It created an issue of national security that affects all parties including the people of darfur,sk,nm and bn. And what you don’t even acknowledge is what if this becomes a holy war, can you really handle another afganistan scenario? importing mujahideen from the arabian peninsula.

            • 11 April 2012 17:07, by Corrector

              I have no confidence in support from the parties that you mentioned. But i have full support from the soon islamist government of egypt, and the saudi’s and the qatari’s and the irani’s. This is a proxy war, and we have the people with the heart and the resources. It may take a million souls for us to win this war. But make no mistake of it, WE Will Win this WAR.

                dear Mr Correct or mohammed other name

                Mr Correct, Sudan and it alles ISlamic fundamentalist will always fail as Usual. i dont understanding this, how do a government declar jihad agaist his own people?, why killing people in the name of god? i think you people are worship satan instead of god. I confident SPLA and SAF with their jihadism.

              You guys are well recorded and known terrorists...it is a fact everyone knows so we expect that and prepare for it..............Already there are dirty weapons from Iran being hidden in water tanks and have moved towards Heglig today and Iranian Airforce is joining you...but be mindful that, you can not liberate any area by air. we are in your quarter monitoring all your activities bro.

          • 11 April 2012 17:31, by mohammed ali

            Zulu, don’t be so naive.You have been brainwashed with a very cheap propoganda. It is not about NCP. The land you occupied belong to all Sudanese not the to the NCP.Who cares wether NCP or not NCP.You are like a burgular inside all Sudanese homes.They will fight collectively to protect against the burguler.The war was started by SPLA theifs to cover up their theft....con

            • 11 April 2012 17:58, by Chol

              Who are they going to mobilize to fight? The one with turbans! Are they willing to fight?
              Ali, say I will fight to reclaimed it not they will fight, who will fight for you!
              The town and land belong to Abyei people; it will be defended by the blood of South Sudanese at all cost!

            • 12 April 2012 02:44, by zulu

              Corrector and Mohamed,
              Obviousely none of you has convinced or has explained plain facts to me because you are NCP. Here is why. The opposition in Khartoum are shut down, the press is curtailed, students opposing war arer clamped upon. Who is supporting the NCP is a loyalist to who and at what cause is that loyalty mystifies reasonable people. Today, you can forcefully rally an innocent person,

              • 12 April 2012 02:49, by zulu

                ...you can commondeer public transit and offload innocnet commuters to rally for you, but the reasonable person is so smart to avoid being taken for a ride by the NCP.
                The previous war and the current is being fought with the assistance of the mujaheed from pakistan and Iran. We are prepared for that since we know you already. The filibuster approach does not enhance your situation. So,back off.

                • 12 April 2012 02:52, by zulu

                  ..south sudanese territories including stealing south sudanese oil. once we settle that, including the handing over of abyei according to the PCA, we will start affresh to redefine which is which. A Dinka for certain does not belong anywhere in Sudan. So, any territories marked geographically as South Sudan in 1956 has to be ceded.

      • 11 April 2012 15:35, by Chok Deng

        There is no one going to be mobilize in Sudan,because they were using African tribes to fight on their behalf.African tribes have realized the true contents of Fake Islam.Let them mobilize their asses and come to South and get their keys of hell.

        • 11 April 2012 15:50, by Corrector

          African tribes? wtf are you on?
          i bet these words haunt you.

            To Corrector
            You are nothing else but a moving corpse,why are u losing battle now if u have SAF.Don’t talk here pick up your gun and get your key of hell,where u will suffer there 4ever.

            • 11 April 2012 16:08, by Corrector

              I hope i will see you soon. With my keys.

      • 11 April 2012 15:58, by Northern Sudanese


        people of Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan wont fight for the sake of south sudan........sudan is now united more than ever before......Darfurians are 100% muslims and they wont betray their brothers for the sake of south sudan even though they might hate the government......only SRF will fight for south sudan.....mark my words

        • 11 April 2012 16:48, by Robot

          Northern Sudanese,
          the truth will speak for itself, by the way this is part of what i had been saying/commenting, i will update and teach you more about Sudan/South Sudan battle of the wits.

        • 12 April 2012 02:58, by zulu

          Did I hear you say Darfuris are Muslims and will defend sudan? From who when those who persecute them, kill their children, rape their women, nothing must be left alive, no prisoner of war, these will defend you? Are they humans are animals for you? Are you insane? You must be kidding me. Even a donkey does rebel against oppression. That is why there is SLM, JEM and SPLA these are real.

    • 11 April 2012 17:22, by mohammed ali

      Eastern,we have been saying this all the time,but the SPLA theifs seems not to care except for the money in their foregin banks.They don’t care about hunger,disease or even if all S.Sudanese perish.Neither them nor their families will suffer the pain,hunger or death.They get support from brainwashed megalomeniacs.Let them dream of exporting their oil through Sudan or their dream pipe-line!

  • 11 April 2012 14:57, by okucu pa lotinokwan

    Please do not bring the children of the poorer in the sudan to come and be killed in the south sudan.Take care and be wise in this dirty planning you are trying,God Bless the south Sudanese.

    Yes you are moblizing your gangs,but you will still losing all the battle to spla thouhg you are moblizing all including your womens,otherwise Khartoum will fall after you

    We are tired of you we would never,never and never surrender just try the consequences will be up on you arabs.

    • 11 April 2012 15:27, by dengtaath

      hahahahahah, hahahahahahah, oh, my God! the streets in the capital khartoum are charged preparing for war. Wow, what a panic, u have been fighting since fifty five, what do you preparing while you are already on it? This warof border demarcation was already predicted by prophet Ngundeng Bong, it is un avoidable, but Jalaba will never win it according to "Dengtaath"

  • 11 April 2012 15:15, by Deng

    This sounds like the ultimate war that prophet Ngundeng prophesied. He said the war will be destructing but South Sudan will win the war. all the events seems to align to this prophecies. I cant wait to see Omar Al bashire and his thugs drag along the streets just like Col. Gadafi of libya. time for SPLA, SPLA N, Darfure, and blue nile to sharpen their horns.

  • 11 April 2012 15:16, by Nimber

    My dear Southerners!!
    Don’t be surprise of the Sudanese mobilization,it will end up on the air.
    It is their fault now let them not cry in that way.
    Otherwise, shame on Sudan for its bad decission.

    hahahahh, They want our OIL and LAND, let them COME we will bury them into our LAND and OIL.THE DISCO is not yet over!!!


    God bless South Sudan!!!

  • 11 April 2012 15:22, by Corrector

    You are underestimating the threat from the north. The SPLA army isn’t as efficient or well trained as they were in the 1990’s and early 2000’s, nor is the SAF are as unprepared as they were in that same time. Plus you are now messing with a strategic asset to Arabia. You just gave wanted criminals a legitimate reason to commit further crimes, and i expect them to be brutal.

  • 11 April 2012 15:25, by Corrector

    You are outnumbered, outgunned, we have more educated people, more resources, more alliances, more medicine. Make no mistake of it, the whole world will hate sudan for a very long time for what they will do to you.

    • 11 April 2012 15:41, by Bentiu CAPTAIN

      hey corrector! War is not about number it is about heart and what you are fighting for. WHY IS OMER BASHIR FIGHTING SOUTH SUDAN? SIMPLY BASHIR IS FIGHTING SOUTH SUDAN BECAUSE THE SOUTH SUDAN OIL HAS BEEN SWEET IN HIS MOUTH ,FULL STOP.
      Do you think Bashir can defeat " KIIR" and "DR RIAK MACHAR"? IF Bashir chooses war ,he will be soon licking his "elbow"

      SPLA OYEEE!!!

      God bless South Sudan!

      • 11 April 2012 15:46, by Corrector

        HAHA.. if war is not about numbers then what is?? You will understand when you hear the 100,000 marching in juba, when hear 1 million bullets fired, when you see the planes bombing everything you ever loved. You asked for madness, well.. your going to get it. Its not a matter of oil anymore, its national security.. S.Sudan is a headache, we will just take you of the map.

        • 11 April 2012 15:48, by Corrector

          You think you have heart? you obviously never heard of jihad, the jihad that bought the saudi’s to afghanistan, the arabs to iraq, the sudanese to egypt. You speak of heart? you have no idea what that is. We put S.Sudan in the map, we can and we will take it out, even if it will take the last breath of the last muslim in the world. Heart you say.. run boy run.

          South Sudan has been the graveyards of jalaba - mundukuru for decades; it is now deep in you psycic and easy man: we will continue to our job and do it well untill you you desert monkys are decimated; by the way our soil also need manure to grow healthy food for our kids.

          Sudan’s al-Intiba newspaper reported Thursday that Israeli organizations have started transferring logistical and military equipment to South Sudan forces

          According to the report, jets have been landing at a Sudan airport at 3 am every day unloading missiles, military equipment and African mercenaries. The paper did not name the organizations behind the alleged deliveries, which, according

            For Corrector and Mohamed,
            the quote from your own NCP media may be conspeciouse. But, if numbers account for success, the Israel would have been defeated. South Sudan would have also been defeated during the past two wars. All the propaganda about mercenaries and so forth mean nothing, because it will allover and we will shoot them all. Now heed your 700 officers who warn you not to fight ROS.

  • 11 April 2012 15:27, by Ker.

    to those who commented on these article, am very happy because ur critics are focus onto the current articl.
    to come to my point,Khartoum must know that Sudanese need their right and their place (sudan) whether they like it or not.and now it will be upto us (sudanese) (south,north,east,west and central) to decide whether we will unite or not without the so called Arab in Sudan.
    SPLA Oyee

    Darfur Oyei

    • 11 April 2012 15:32, by Corrector

      If it wasn’t for the arabs, you wouldn’t even have a country. Think about that for a second. They only reason Sudan agreed to the CPA is because they wanted the oil and because the U.S promised more diplomatic relations. Now, no oil, no friendly relations with the U.S, i would be surprised if south sudan isn’t a state in sudan within 20 years.

    • 11 April 2012 19:31, by AfroArabian

      ’so called arabs’..who are you? at least we have a culture, LANGUAGE and RELIGION that has no fake or immaginative ’prophet NONEsomthing’ as mentioned in an earlier post..and you KNOW that we are fearless...who says SK, BN and Darfur wont support or stand side by side..you are the ones creating havoc in those regions..and a lesson will soon be taught. we had Juba before.did u ever have Khartoum?

    Just mobilize and give them 2 day’s military training cuz time is short.

    Otherwise its too late at moment to mobilize.

    • 11 April 2012 19:43, by AfroArabian

      for your information, the guards (not full on armed forces) at heglig were there to stop vandalism and theft.something u are always good at,its even part of ur culture and marriage rights to steal cattle etc.and if u ask ur WELL trained commanders, they were all trained in Gebait Army.thats in the North by the way...we fought before, and we were in Juba.were u ever in Khartoum except for stealing?

    The media should stop calling panthou as Heglig. This was and is a Dinka village that has nothing to do with Kordofan or Sudan. It is part and parcel of South Sudan. The media should stop misinforming the world about the place. However costly Panthou is going to cost South Sudan it is worth it like it is to Kapoeta, Rumbek, Bor or Yei or Malakal.

    International calls to Juba to withdraw from the Heglig.


    African Union called on the State of South Sudan to withdraw "immediately and unconditionally" from the Heglig oil of the Sudan.
