The Comorian president, Ahmed Abdallah Sambi, has just appointed Squadron chief Mohamed Daoud alias Madaba as the regional commander of the National Development Army (AND) in Anjouan.

This Anjouanese is among Comorians that have amply suffered from the separatist crisis.

He became famous through opposing the separatist leaders and he was harassed and hunted down in Anjouan for this.

The new AND regional commander came back to his native island thanks to the last March military operation against the rule of deposed Mohamed Bacar.

Two other military officials were appointed at the same time. They are Lieutenant Dailami Saindou Ben Ali as commander of the fourth company of the Comorian defense force (FCD) and Second Lieutenant Abdallah Ibrahim as company commander of the national gendarmerie.

Second Lieutenant Ibrahim headed the missing peoples bureau in Moroni.

The task of these officers is far from being easy. They must restore peace in an island ravaged by more than ten years of separatist crisis and where wounds caused by the Bacar dictatorship are yet to be healed.
