Sudan: Fighting continues in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile (audio)

Listen to the interview

Fighting is continuing in Sudan, between armed rebels and Sudanese government forces in South Kordofan and Blue Nile states.

The Comprehensive Peace Agreement signed by the Sudanese government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) in 2005 ended a long civil war in Sudan and eventually led to the independence of South Sudan.

But breakaway fighters from the south have continued military action against Sudan

Derrick Mbatha asked the representative of Sudan to the United Nations, Ambassador Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman why fighting is still going on in the two states in Sudan.
