Sudan Has Split

Oh no! Sudan's unity government has split after South Sudanese representatives claimed that a number of deadlines that were supposed to have been accomplished are still outstanding.

Due to that, the South Sudanese representatives have walked out of the unity governmnet that was established after the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Deal (CPA) signed two years ago between the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) and the northern National Congress Party (NCP).

Amongst the deadlines stated in the CPA:-
* boundary demarcations between the north and south;
* the redeployment of northern troops from the south to be implemented; and
* chance to reshuffle its minister in the unity administration.

Must show my boss this situation. Definitely I'm not going back there with this latest outcome. I have already been through the tension once during the first 2 weeks of Aug 2005 and I don't need another to refresh my memory. It really did shake me. Lots of us were really affected then in terms of emotion / psychologically.

The government has stated that SPLM's pull out was only a tactical ploy to get the government to the discussion table.

I can only wish that Sudan finds peace soon. There are so many of their people fleeing seeking refuge in the UK and other developed countries. Their lives are disrupted when they should be enjoying the comforts of their own homes.

Please spread the word about the first and only Pinoy radio show in the UK called Usapang Pinoy. The pilot show is on the 27th of October at 10pm Manila time. Anyone in the world can go to and click on LISTEN ONLINE and participate. You can send me instant messages which I will read on air! And I also need Pinoy music to play on the show. I only have a very limited number of songs, so please help if you can.
