Mamdani random page event #272

I open the book to page 272 and read at the bottom that: "The conflict in Darfur began as a civil war in 1987-89." In case I didn't understand that, the next sentence reads (it's priceless!): "To acknowledge this, however, would be to recognize that the violent conflict in Darfur began as an internal tribal civil war (1987-89) even before al-Bashir came to power in 1989." There are so very many things wrong with these sentences, from grammar to implication... where to begin!!!!! Gosh I could fill up a whole page. But why bother, it's just another Mamdaniism.
