Ex-official in South Kordofan describes militia activity

July 3 - 2011 TALODI

The dismissed commissioner of Talodi, Mohammed Kamal, alleged that the National Congress Party (NCP) is carrying out recruitment, forming an army and rearming people in certain programs and militias in South Kordofan. In an interview with Radio Dabanga, the former commissioner also accused the army of being undisciplined. He said that the militias, with direct orders from leading figures in the NCP, have wiped out cadres of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) and destroyed homes and robbed them, stating that his government house was robbed of properties worth one hundred thousand pounds.

Kamal also pointed out that the living standards of the civilians in Talodi are terrible now and that there is an increase in prices of consumer goods, which now have to be brought through the Abassiya road instead of the blocked Kadugli road.
