Political leaders in a large delegation visited Tabit and other villages in Tawila locality on Thursday, a day after a human rights report was released, confirming a mass rape of hundreds of women and girls by Sudanese soldiers in Tabit last year.
The delegation was led by the Governor of North Darfur, Osman Kibir, and the state security committee. They moved in a convoy of white vehicles to Tabit, Khazan Tunjur, Tibra, and finally to Tawila. The officials came to inspect a model village, as part of a voluntary repatriation programme for displaced people, which was built in Tabit.
A Dabanga correspondent from East Jebel Marra reported that the government delegation arrived in Tabit in the morning. “They moved after 5pm in 30 vehicles, accompanied by 70 security forces. The situation sparked fear and intimidation among the population.”
'We expect Omar Al Bashir to officially open Tabit' s model village'
He said that the hidden agenda of the visit is to coordinate a campaign that silences the victims and residents of Tabit to not reveal any information on the mass rape case.
The delegation brought two trucks filled with grains and sugar into the village. Once there, Osman Kibir and the North Darfur security committee inspected the facilities built with the financial support of Qatar by the Darfur Regional Authority (DRA). The model village includes a brand-new school, a health centre and a mosque (photo above). The state and the DRA stated in the beginning of January that they expect President Omar Al Bashir to visit and officially open the village in the future.
The DRA has built model villages throughout Darfur. The project 'model villages for voluntary returnees' is a part of the 2011 Doha Document for Peace in Darfur, signed by the Sudanese government and the LJM, and later, by the Bashar faction of the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM-Bashar).
To the present reporters on Thursday, the delegation explained that the population in Tabit suffered from thirst, especially the newly displaced people who fled the recent militiamen's attacks on civilians in East Jebel Marra. They estimated their numbers at about 3,000 people.
Kibir and the delegation went on to visit a dam that is being constructed in Khazan Tunjur, and a girls' school (photo) which was destroyed during a deadly attack by militiamen in Tibra in 2010. The village is now completely empty. They concluded their visit with a meeting in Tawila.
