Sudan plans to disband camps in ‘secure’ West Darfur
The Sudanese government plans to dismantle the camps for the displaced in West Darfur, according to the Governor.
Governor Haidar Galokuma told the Sudanese Centre for Press Services, owned by the security apparatus, on Thursday that his government intends to dismantle the camps in West Darfur, as part of its plans to return the displaced to their villages of origin.
The West Darfur camps for the displaced are not needed anymore, he explained, as “an unprecedented secure and stable situation is prevailing in the state”.
Sheikhs in the camps described Galokuma’s statements as “lies and deceptive”, referring to recent attacks on displaced at the Azirni, Kongok, Kereinik, and Um Tajuk camps.
