*August 7 - 2017 MURNEI / EL FASHER / TOKAR / SENNAR One cholera patient
died and 39 new cases were reported in Darfur over the weekend. Last week
14 people died of cholera in Murnei camp in West Darfur, where the
isolation centre received 25 new cholera patients on Saturday. Local
sources have attributed the cause of the increased infection rate mostly to
a lack of potable water and unawareness of camp residents and officials. A
North Darfur locality recorded four deaths in a couple of days. A state
public health specialist, Esam Osman Zakaria, resigned from the Ministry of
in protest against the government’s silence on cholera. “Because of misty
reports on 'watery diarrhoea' in Kabkabiya, the cover up and non-response
to the demands of the medical teams that have been sent to the area,” he
told Radio Dabanga. In Tokar, in the eastern Red Sea state, two people died
of cholera last week. The total number of deaths has risen to five and more
than 100 infections in a week's time. A journalist reported to this station
that most of the infections in Tokar originate from the districts
surrounding the town, which are overcrowded and lack clean water and
toilets. In eastern Sudan’s Sennar, the spread of the infectious disease
seems to be halted. Cholera has been ravaging in a number of localities but
isolation centres in El Dindir, El Souki, and Singa witnessed a remarkable
decrease in infection rates in the past few days.*

*First warning in Darfur's illegal arms, vehicle collection*
*August 8 - 2017 EL FASHER The five governors of Darfur and the Second
Vice-President of Sudan issued a warning to people who possess weapons
illegally, or unlicensed vehicles, to hand them over to the Sudanese army
and police or risk a penalty. Complaints arose over the government
targeting civilians, instead of militia members.*
*The first meeting of the Higher Commission for the Collection of
Unlicensed Firearms and Vehicle took place this week to implement the
disarmament campaign in Darfur. Only owners of unregistered Land Cruisers
will be compensated for the confiscation as of Monday, Second
Vice-President Hassabo Mohamed Abdelrahman said. Specific measures are
established for the many segments of the paramilitary Border Guards,
Popular Defence Forces, Rapid Support Forces and Central Reserve Forces.
The holding of weapons will be restricted to the regular forces, initially
in Darfur and Kordofan but eventually in all states of the country.*
*Representatives of displaced people and activists in Darfur have ridiculed
the government's decision to collect weapons. “This campaign should collect
arms from the hands of the government’s militias, not from civilians,” an
activist told Radio Dabanga, claiming that all illegal weapons in Darfur
are in the hands of militiamen. Some complained that the ones who own a
Land Cruiser with a machine gun mounted on top are often the bandits who
roam the markets carrying weapons and exercise banditry.*
