Adam Bush was an eloquent voice from the Hamidiya camp in Zalengi - West Darfur, familiar to listeners of Radio Dabanga and the BBC. He was elected by the IDPs in Zalengi as their spokesperson. But Mr Bush was assassinated a few days ago by GoS special forces (death squads) as per the "New Strategy" in Darfur: to silence the outspoken voices, especially in the camps. Some members of the Zalengi Camp Council, a body formed by the IDPs, were also murdered.
Residents in Darfur's camps for the displaced report this new government tactic of sending squads in civilian cloths into the camps to assassinate the leaders among the IDPs.
Eyewitnesses to the murder of Adam Bush and his colleagues said that a group of armed men in plain cloths entered the camp, headed straight to the leaders, murdered them, and retreated swiftly.
