As our people in south Sudan vote –in this unprecedented referendum (the votes are taking place from 9 January until 15 January 2011) on whether or not the region should remain a part of Greater Sudan or become independent –my prayers goes out to the masses, who have suffered for over 22 years in a civil war that has killed 2 million people. I want Independence sooo badly for Southern Sudan and pray for safe and peaceful voting, and no intimidation from north Sudan. I wonder, –will the present Sudanese president, Omar al-Bashir truly accept the results and will he ever be tried for genocide and war crimes against the people of Darfur?
P.s -I was only going to accompany this piece with a couple of photos of former war child, musician Emmanuel Jal –proberbly the most beautiful black man on the planet –but I though naaa I better celebrate our beautiful Sudanese sisters too…hehee xx
