SPLM investigates assassination attempt

Media Monitoring Report, 5 September 2007
(Khartoum Monitor)

SPLM police have yesterday launched investigations into the
attempted assassination early last week of Daniel Kodi, Deputy Governor of South
Kordofan State, in Rabak, White Nile State.

A suspect to the attempt is being interrogated and, once investigations are through,
will be handed over to White Nile Police.

Kodi survived the attempt on his life when a person detonated a hand grenade while
the deputy governor was speaking to SPLM supporters at a ceremony in Rabak. South
Kordofan State authorities say another man was arrested on Saturday in connection to
the attempt.

On his part, Deputy Governor Kodi said some parties (which he declined to name)
have been trying to assassinate him since the signing of the CPA. He further accused
the NCP of arming militias in South Kordofan State and called for speeding up the
implementation of the Protocol on Security Arangements and DDR for the militias.
