This is the story of the peace process in Sudan. It is told by one of Kenya's most distinguished writers, well placed to narrate the extraordinary story of how peace in Africa's largest country was mediated over a period of over five years by General Lazaro Sumbeiywo, a passionate and indefatigable soldier. Sumbeiywo managed to achieve what top-level international diplomats had failed to do: to reconcile the positions represented by the President of the Khartoum Government, Omar Hassan Al-Bashir, on the one hand, and on the other, by the late Colonel John Garang, leader of the southern-based resistance movement/army, the SPLM/A, until his untimely death in 2005. The process culminated in the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in January 2005, which effectively ended over two decades of conflict, and marked a major breakthrough in the history of the African continent.
