UGANDA: Daily Monitor
“A letter from Darfur”
Published: April 18, 2023

Sudan is a tough nut to crack. There are two peacekeeping missions - one a joint African Union-United Nations effort set to become the world's biggest, the other a UN mission keeping a lid on what had been Africa's longest-running civil war in southern Sudan - and a strong central government that enjoys the support of the world's emerging superpower, China.

"Right Organisations call for Darfur arrests"
Published: April 26, 2023

Called Justice for Darfur, the campaign for the arrest of Sudan's secretary of state for humanitarian affairs Ahmed Haroun and pro-government Janjaweed militia leader Ali Kosheib is supported among others by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the Darfur Consortium and Aegis Trust.
