Gov. Harun in El-Fula ahead of tribal meeting
South Kordofan Governor Ahmed Harun visited El-Fula on Saturday where he chaired a meeting of the council of ministers on the security of the area in the wake of intra-Misseriya fighting last month.
The Awlad Heiban and Awlad Surur clans on 25 January signed a peace charter in the presence of the governor, committing to end hostilities that had erupted in El-Fula, the capital of the erstwhile West Kordofan State.
State news agency SUNA reported that the council of ministers “issued a set of directoves to strengthen security and stability in the region in order to create a secure environment for the peace conference between the two sides in Ed-Daein.”
A reconciliation conference has been planned to take place in Ed-Daein, East Darfur on 22 February.
In a press statement after the meeting yesterday the governor paid tribute to the role of the native administration, youth and civil society in supporting the efforts toward peace and coexistence.
He added that the government adopted the slogan “services from social harmony,” disclosing that the federal ministry of finance has offered support for the council’s development programme.
The governor further stated that the council of ministers will remain in continuous session in El-Fula, according to SUNA.
