ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - The leader of the Change Movement (Gorran) returned to the Kurdistan Region from London on Saturday.

Shorsh Haji, spokesperson of Gorran told Rudaw that their leader [Nawshirwan Mustafa] who spent about eight months in the United Kingdom has returned to Sulaimani. Haji was unaware of what prompted Mustafa’s return.

Mustafa left the Kurdistan Region for the United Kingdom on September, 3, 2016. Gorran leaders previously have said he went to the UK to receive medical treatment.

Mustafa led the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan’s (PUK) reform wing, but in 2009 Gorran broke away from the party after the PUK’s political infighting escalated.

Gorran has 24 seats in the Kurdistan Parliament, the second most after the ruling Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP).  

His wife passed away in March, but he could not attend her funeral held in Sulaimani.

He must return to the Kurdish independence camp and stop boicoting and poisoning the Kurdish politics. He must know that treason may bring him some personal gain but also shame and the contempt all traiters finally get.

He is the incarnation of Macbeth and Machiavelli. His ambition knows no limits, and he is ready to commit every kind of treason and crimes to fulfill his ambition .He is against Kurds and Kurdishnes. He will do every thing possible to betray the Kurdish blood let for independence. He told the Americans that he does not believe in Kurdish independence.

The Kurdish Boy, the tribal, corraption and islamism have destroyed KRG. Do not blame this man, what you have in Iraqi Kurdistan is a shithole and everyone is by him self. People are leaving KRG, figure out why. Even if KRG becomes a Kurdistan it will self destruct by it self.
