So Ahmed Haroun, wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity and war crimes in Darfur was appointed to Governor of South Kordofan by the President of Sudan, Omar Bashir, who is also wanted for the same crimes, go figure! Well guess what? Ahmed is back to what he does best, killing and burning. This time in South Kordofan, and between ordering airstrikes against unarmed civilian populations and the most recent event, in which 33 women and 1 man was detained for allegedly supporting the Sudan People Liberation Movement-North, Ahmed has been a busy war criminal.
While the Government of Sudan continues an ever widening path of usurping the people of Sudan, their actions indicate what is in their hearts and any path to peace can only be viable when the intention is clearly sincere. Sadly, the only thing that remains clear is that war criminals are running wild and with total impunity in Sudan.
