Listen /

Mohamed Ibn Chambas

Mohamed Ibn Chambas arrived in Khartoum on Monday to take up the position of Head of the African Union-United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) and Joint Chief Mediator.

Mr. Chambas, a national of Ghana, said upon his arrival, that he was happy to take up his duties in Darfur at a very crucial time.

Mr. Chambas, who replaces Mr. Ibrahim Gambari, brings to his new position extensive experience after a long and distinguished career in both international and governmental fora.

He believes that only an all-inclusive peace on the basis of the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur can bring a lasting solution to the suffering of millions of men, women and children in the region.

On 20 December 2012, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and African Union Commission Chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma appointed Mr. Chambas as their Joint Special Representative for Darfur, Head of UNAMID. His responsibilities include those of the African Union-United Nations Joint Chief Mediator.

Gerry Adams, United Nations.
