Mr. President elect, my organization the SLM/A championing and
defending the people of Darfur, who, atrocities against them
declared by the US Government and Congress as genocide, is not only
proud of you and of the people of the United States of America, but
its also confident and hopeful that your administration would
immediately embark to engage itself effectively in expediting the
resolution of their tragedy and restoration of peace, security and
stability in the larger Sudan.

We look forward for further cooperation and understanding.
Forward ever, backward never. Struggle continue

Yours Sincerely,

Minni Minawi
