Darfur peace conference: Collect weapons and vehicles
The social peace conference concluded in Nyala, South Darfur, on Saturday, recommended the need to collect weapons and four-wheel-drive vehicles from civilians.
Other recommendations that the participating State Governors, tibes’ native administrations, and civil society organisations made were to extend the state’s prestige and to create a conducive atmosphere for the voluntary return of displaced people and refugees.
They further advised the state to empower native administrations of tribes so they can bear responsibility for resolving tribal conflicts, and to improve control on the borders with neighbouring countries. The formation of a communication mechanism with the armed rebel movements in Darfur was recommended, too.
At the conclusion on Saturday, Hassabo Mohamed Abdelrahman, the Second Vice-President of Sudan, said that the government’s priorities in the following phase lie with the reconstruction of Darfur, voluntary return of displaced people, sustainable development in education, health, water and roads, and the implementation of national projects such as the national electricity network.
