SPLM-N announces formation of new administration in S. Kordofan


October 30, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - The chairman of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N) Malik Agar issued a decree on Wednesday establishing a new administration for the border state of South Kordofan.

Agar named Simon Kalu Komi as SPLM-N head in the state and the governor of the province. Suleiman Jabuna Mohamed was appointed as deputy governor and Ammar Amon Daldoum as SPLM-N Secretary General in South Kordofan.

The decree said the shuffle was made to implement of the resolutions of previous SPLM-N council meetings on delegating more authorities and involving more SPLM-N members in the management of movement’s leadership institutions.

It went on to say that a sufficient period has passed since the outbreak of the war "imposed by the [ruling] National Congress Party (NCP)", which allowed for conducting an objective assessment of the capabilities and commitment of the SPLM-N cadres in order to promote some to leadership positions.

Agar noted the continuing trend is to activate the principles of separating political and civil institutions from military ones and support the SPLM-N leadership to perform its duties in defending civilians and the thwarting genocide schemes.

A similar decree will be issued later for the Blue Nile state and formation of regional liberation councils as well as the national liberation council.

Since 2011, the two states have been witnessing armed conflict between the SPLM-N and the Sudanese army.

Attempts to bring the two sides for negotiations have yet to yield any results.

Last July, Sudanese president Omar Hassan al-Bashir accepted the resignation of South Kordofan governor Ahmed Haroun and appointed Adam Al-Faki Mohamed Al-Tayeb as acting governor.

Haroun is one of the Sudanese officials wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes he allegedly masterminded in Darfur during his time as state minister for interior.

During the conflict with rebels in his state, there has been numerous reports of abuses against civilians in the Nuba mountains area in particular.

    So Aggar appointed this unknown person who called "Simon Kalu Komi" as the head (governor) of S kordofan state? What a joke? why not Al-Hilo? no worries I believe Aggar will appoint Al-Hilo as the president of Sudan very soon! You guys can hire on paper who ever you want to hire but I strongly believe that you’re drinking too much Marisa these days! LOL

      Congratulations comrade Simon, when late Garang was creating civil institutions back in the 80s & 90s in the liberated areas, the racist ruling elite thought he was crazy and deluded. Today S.Sudan is a country, laugh now but you’ll cry later as you do for S.Sudan (albeit for its resources). Retarded racist imbeciles never learn...lol!

        You are 100% stupid cattle camp Nuer from Leer. What is your problem with Agar? Why the comparison? Yes. Nuer are cannibals. In 1991 Riak ate a lot of corpse in Jonglei’s jungles until he became obese and can’t reduce his MBI (mass body index). he yearned to enjoy Garang’s remains, thank he died after peace.
