On Sunday, the West Kordofan Security Committee discussed a proposed schedule for the migration of nomads with their livestock, to prevent tribal clashes in the area.

Brig. Abdallatif Abdallah Abdelgader, commander of the 22st Infantry Brigade, stressed in a meeting of the Security Committee in El Fula, capital of West Kordofan, that all herders are required to commit themselves to the schedule.

The brigadier stressed that “there is no room for outlaws in West Kordofan anymore”, pointing to the security measures recently imposed in the state.

The West Kordofan governor, Abulgasem El Amin Baraka, headed the meeting in which the leader of the Awlad Umran tribe, Ismail Hamedein, presented his recommendations to prevent new tribal conflicts over pastures in the south-western part of Sudan.

Last month, the leaders of the Awlad Umran met in Abyei locality, where they discussed the issue of repeated conflicts over pastures, formulated a number of recommendations, and renewed their commitment to the peace agreement with the Zuyoud tribe.
