We, the Alliance Political Parties of the Nuba Mountains would like to present our view on the report written by Mr. J.C. Danforth, the US special envoy for peace on 26/4/2002. In brief we say:
1. We do appreciate the commitment of U.S Government and other international organisation to achieve and monitor permanent and just peace in Sudan based on the reasons stated in the report.
Although no one had given the issue much thought until the ceasefire came into effect it has suddenly become clear to outsiders that that the Nuba Mountains are one of the most landmine-contaminated places on earth and urgent action is needed before international humanitarian organisations are willing to deploy.
Dear Nuba Vision
May I offer you my congratulation for your excellent article and excellent February issue of Nuba Vision and especial congratulation on your coverage of the magnificent news of the cease-fire. I also liked the article on Nuba Languages by Robin Thelwall. I do hope all goes well with cease-fire and that it does get renewed.

It is worthwhile to reflect upon the rainy season festivals due to their repercussions on Nuba youths - male and female alike. The Kambala is by far the most famous Nuba dance. It symbolises courage, strength and love. Kamballa is now one of the few dances performed.
