Switching Sides

Switching Sides Cracks are emerging in the alliance between janjaweed fighters and the Sudanese government. Thousands of ex-fighters have switched sides and are now fighting the government.
"The Sudanese government offered me many nice things to push back people in North Darfur", states janjaweed leader, Abu Sara. "But now, we refuse to work for them". Fighters are worried by the special courts the Sudanese government has set up to try war criminals. They fear lowly janjaweed members will be made scape-goats to hide the real criminals in the government. Rebel leader, Nasradin Ahmmad Tendi, confirms Abu Sara's story. "There are many people from the Janjaweed who are leaving the Sudanese government and joining us", he states. "We accept them because they also have been cheated".
