18000 Armed Elements to Demobilize in Southern Kordofan

21 April 2009 (smc)

DDR for southern Sudan would start Monday next week the second stage for the year 2009 that targets demobilization of 18000 elements from popular forces SPLM and armed forces in Kadogli capital of southern Kordofan state.

DDR commissioner Sulafaldein Salih told (smc) that the operation represents big challenge for the commission because it is the biggest operation of its kind in terms of numbers and financial support.

He noted that the DDR should provid a subsidy of 860 Sudanese pounds and 350 Kilogram for each targeted person for a period of five months.

Sulafaldein said the chairman of DDR higher coordinating council Gen Bakri Hassain Salih would attend the opening ceremony.
