Khartoum, Sudan – (African Boulevard News) – Sudan’s former Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has issued a red flag over the ongoing violence in his country, warning that the clashes could deteriorate into one of the worst civil wars than those experienced in the past. Hamdok, who served as a prime minister for over 13 months until he was ousted in October 2021, expressed concern over the deteriorating situation in Sudan and urged the international community to intervene.
The situation in Sudan has been volatile since the ouster of former President Omar al-Bashir in 2019, triggering a power struggle that has plunged the country into chaos. Hamdok, a respected economist, was appointed to lead the transitional government tasked with steering Sudan towards democratic rule. However, his efforts were short-lived as he was removed from office in a military coup that drew widespread condemnation.
Since his removal, the country has witnessed a spike in clashes between rival factions, including the military and civilian leaders, who are struggling to gain control of the country. Hamdok believes that if the ongoing violence is not addressed urgently, it could lead to a full-blown civil war. He urged all parties involved in the conflict to engage in dialogue and seek peaceful ways to resolve their differences.
“The situation in Sudan is worrying, and if the violence continues, it could escalate into one of the worst civil wars the country has ever experienced,” Hamdok said in a statement. “We need to address the root causes of the conflict and find a peaceful solution that benefits all Sudanese.”
Hamdok’s warning comes amid reports of increased violence in the Darfur region, where the government has been accused of committing human rights violations against civilians. The UN has also expressed concern over the situation and called for an end to the hostilities.
The African Union has also called on all parties to engage in dialogue and find a peaceful solution to the crisis. The international community has been urged to intervene and help bring an end to the violence in Sudan.
The crisis in Sudan has attracted global attention and is a cause for concern for neighboring countries. The UN and other international organizations have been working to find a solution to the crisis, but progress has been slow due to the complex nature of the conflict.
In conclusion, the violence in Sudan needs to be addressed urgently before it escalates into a full-blown civil war. The international community needs to intervene and help find a peaceful solution that benefits all Sudanese. Only then can Sudan begin its journey towards democratic rule and stability.
