    Sudan group in legal challenge to independence vote [edited]

    Lawyers for a Sudanese campaign group launched a legal bid on Sunday to halt Sudan's referendum on southern independence, accusing organisers of mishandling the process, a move which could derail the January 9 vote.

    A group calling itself the Society Organisation Network instructed lawyers to take the case to court, accusing the referendum commission of placing SPLM members in senior posts and saying southerners in the north had been prevented from registering for the vote.

    Good.
    The referendum should be prevented. The colonial borders of Africa cannot be changed nor should the Pandora's box be opened

    Why shouldn't Africans get to determine African borders?

    I think they should be allowed to vote on their independence. The Sudanese are suffering enough, hopefully this will help bring peace if people are allowed to vote on border changes.

    If you want another war, you are correct.

    Sudan will eventually collapse back to fighting
    There will be wars over oil, the divisions of land/oil/Nile water.

    However it will no longer be an eternal thing. The leadership of Sudan is evil. What if they can establish a government better than the Sudanese one? (Which is likely to happen).

    No, thank you.

    Africa is not ready for disturbing this and the repercussions of a "NEW" African country.
    That is why the AU's Charter is against the changing of colonial borders. No new country is allowed to created.

    May happen.
    But peace will not occur.

    No new African countries that deviate from the colonial borders should occur .... for a VERY long time.
