In the end of August 2020, Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok signed a peace deal with 3 rebel groups:
– Justice and Equality Movement (JEM).
– Sudan Liberation Army (SLA).
– Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM).
It is worth mentioning that some members of the SLM led by Abdelwahid Nour refused to participate.
This peace deal is a very promising step into peace in Sudan although there are still some concerns. Conflict in Sudan has been going on for almost 20 years that resulted in bloodshed and displacement of hundreds of thousands of people.
The fact that this peace deal took place in Juba, South Sudan with participation of President Salva Kiir Mayardit, symbolizes the good intention of president Kiir in aspiring for peace in his own country so let’s wish that is the case and aim for the realization of that idea.
We have a common enemy who benefits from war and bloodshed. That enemy makes a business out of people’s misery. Only through the unity of positive energy we can defeat this enemy.
Only by death is a true warrior defeated, only by love of people is a true victor crowned!
Friends of peace, I urge you all to unite and join efforts to achieve what we have been always dreaming about; a world of peace. With peace, we can comfortably help the poor and heal the sick without worrying about the dangers of civil war that can only make things worse.
