The South Darfur authorities are to be held accountable for the delay of peace negotiations between the Salamat and Taisha tribes in Rahad El Berdi locality, according to Omda Jibril Hassan Adam, chief of Salamat.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, Adam accused the government of South Darfur of “not taking the matter seriously.

“Since one year and a half, we have been waiting for the South Darfur authorities to arrange for a reconciliation meeting with the Taisha, however to no avail.”

He pointed out that many Salamat families are still living in camps for the displaced, after clashes forced them to flee their homes two years ago. “They are unable to tend their farmlands, and their children are deprived of education.”

The Salamat chief called on the Sudanese government instead to facilitate a reconciliation conference between the two tribes.
