Sudan - Politics - Conflict in the Nuba Mountains

Hawa, a political leader in the SPLM sits in her hotel in the Nuba Mountains on July 6, 2011, She was forced to flee from a camp in Kadulgli next to the UN compound after members of the Public Defense Forces started shooting anyone associated with the SPLM in front of her. Nuba spent 20 years fighting alongside the rebel Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) of southern Sudan against an Arab-led government whose policies were seen as discriminatory towards native Africans. The conflict caused at least 2 million deaths and the displacement of another 4 million people. But while south Sudan has seceded from Khartoum and is preparing to celebrate independence on Saturday 9 July, the Nuba mountains are experiencing yet another bloody chapter in this never-ending crisis. Tensions have risen in the past months and flared up on 5 June after a controversial election. |
