The Special Envoy of the Chairman of the Transitional Sovereignty Council in Sudan, Amb. Dafallah Al-Haj Ali yesterday led his team to State House Entebbe to seek HE Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s advice on the current crisis in their country.
This has been confirmed by president Museveni himself who urged them to stop the politics of identity and rather concentrate on the politics of interest.
“Special Envoy of the Chairman of the Transitional Sovereignty Council in Sudan called on me at Entebbe and briefed me on the situation in Sudan. I reiterated my earlier advice that they should do away with politics of Identity & concentrate on politics of Interest,” tweeted Museveni. He added that currently the ceasefire is critical to allow peace, for people to elect their leaders as owners of the country. “The country does not belong to the Sudan Army, it belongs to the people,” Museveni further lectured the Sudanese.
Sudan battles since mid-April have killed hundreds of people and wounded thousands of others, disrupted aid supplies and sent 100,000 refugees fleeing abroad.
While mediators continue seeking a path to peace, both sides have made it clear they would only discuss a humanitarian truce, not negotiate an end to the war.
Confirming his group’s attendance, RSF leader Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, commonly known as Hemedti, says he hoped previous talks would achieve their intended aim of securing safe passage for civilians but all in vain.
Hemedti has vowed to either capture or kill rival army leader Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and there is also evidence on the ground that both sides remain unwilling to make compromises to end the bloodshed.
Western powers have backed the transition to a civilian government in a country that sits at a strategic crossroads between Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia and the volatile Sahel region.
