Sudan People's Armed Forces is much more common and a simple google search you get alot more results, it was this name for very long time which means long term consensun, also the move were not sourced and is in fact WP:OR Hopelesscross (talk) 19:03, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Sudan People's Armed Forces is the name used by the Library of Congress Country Study of 1991. It is now obsolete - all reliable sources use SAF. You will see from the ANI discussion that my decision to move the page is supported by authoritative sources - the International Institute for Strategic Studies, the Small Arms Survey, and indeed the United Nations Security Council reports.

I've moved the page name back to SAF, as backed by the discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/IncidentArchive747#Buckshot06_protected_page_after_a_one_good_faith_edit. Buckshot06 (talk) 09:59, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
