ZALINGEI, Sudan, January 14, 2020/ — On 13 January, UNAMID Joint Special Representative/Joint Chief Mediator (JSR/JCM), Jeremiah Mamabolo visited the deserted Krinding camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in El Geneina town in West Darfur State, to assess the extent of damage during the recent intercommunal clashes that resulted in a number of fatalities and injuries as well as mass displacement amongst the civilian population in the area.

The JSR expressed his deep regret at the damage that affected the camp “We deeply regret such egregious acts of violence and this camp stands witness on the level of destruction and displacement that resulted from this incident.” JSR Mamabolo said.

“We hope that such incidents are a stark reminder to the involved communities that violent means of resolving dispute can only result in a lose-lose situation. There is never any winner! I therefore encourage the leaders and members of local communities to always engage in a meaningful dialogue to resolve their differences and refrain from all acts that would lead to violence and displacement,” he added
