The Sudanese Central Commission for Students’ Political Organizations kicked off a mobilisation and recruitment campaign to send fighters to the border state of South Kordofan where the Sudan People Liberation Army (SPLA) of South Sudan took over the oil-rich region of Heglig.
The Sudanese government vowed to reclaim the area amid widespread condemnation by the international community to Juba’s move. The commission suggested that they will not allow “pro-rebel” groups at the universities from holding any political events inside the schools.
The body accused Darfur rebels and the opposition Popular Congress Party (PCP) led by Hassan al-Turabi of supporting and celebrating the attack on Heglig. Habib Mahfouz, the commission head, said that they will work to expose the “traitors” who are working for a regime change by publishing their names and plots.
He disclosed that they handed over a letter of complaint to the United Nations, United States embassy, African Union (AU) and European Union (EU). Mahfouz said that the attack on Heglig is an aggressive approach from South Sudan which aims to kill Sudan morally as well as on the ground.
