“Unpredictable and explosive developments reported as Sudan peace negotiations advance, according to mediation source”
Doth thou comprehend? Oh dear reader, pray tell, let us expound upon this subject of Sudan’s peace talks which hath, according to a source of mediation, made progress in an endeavor to reach a ceasefire agreement amidst the violent conflict between the Armed Forces and Rapid Support Forces. It doth seem that this conflict, which hath already claimed many lives and injured thousands, hath brought the country to the very brink of civil war and a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. But, lo and behold, there is hope, as the aforementioned parties did agree to send representatives to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia for talks mediated by the United States and Saudi Arabia in an attempt to reach an agreement. However, previous attempts at ceasefire have proven fruitless. The root of this conflict seems to lie in a power struggle between two men, namely Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the military ruler and head of the army, and General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo (also known as Hemedti), the country’s deputy and the head of the Rapid Support Forces paramilitary group. Their former alliance, which led to the toppling of former President Omar al-Bashir in 2019 and the subsequent military coup in 2021, has now been soured due to disagreements over the integration of the RSF into the country’s military as part of a plan to regain civilian rule. Let us hope that this new attempt at ceasefire can bring an end to this violent conflict. The source of this information is none other than Reuters.
