Situation updates-North Darfur-Tawila/Rwanda IDP Camp 21st March 2015


Some members of the Janjaweed militia men bought some meat from a 40yrs old butcher by the name of Yahya Mohamed Musa in Rwanda IDP camp in Tawila, and they refused to pay for the meat. When Yahya tried to get his meat back, they beat him, and then shot him dead. His relative Hawa Arbab, 60 years, tried to support him; she was also shot and severely injured.

On 22nd the market in Rwanda was closed and IDPs kept their houses fearing that the Janjaweed militia will attack the camp. The situation remains tense.

SUDO UK calls on the Government to disband the Rapid Support Forces as well as the Janjaweed as these are consistently committing human rights abuses in Darfur. All those individuals or groups responsible for committing human rights violations must be brought to justice.

SUDO UK calls on UNAMID to take strong action in order to fulfil its mandate, including its obligation to “prevent attacks against civilians, within its capability and areas of deployment, without prejudice to the responsibility of the Government of the Sudan”, and the requirement “to investigate and hold accountable those who are responsible, and promote efforts to disarm the Janjaweed and other militias”.
