Ruto defies Sudanese generals on mediation talks

Ruto remains defiant over Sudan mediation talks despite opposition by the Sudanese generals as lead negotiator.

President William Ruto has defied the Sudanese General’s objections to his involvement in bringing about peace in the unrest-plagued nation in the Horn of Africa. 

In a meeting on Monday with the Intergovernmental Authority on Development(IGAD) at Statehouse Nairobi, Ruto gave his remarks on the progress of the talks, revealing that he was pushing on with his position.

“A coordinated approach involving all stakeholders is the best chance to restore peace and stability, accelerate the return to normalcy, and alleviate the humanitarian crisis inside the country and in the wider region,” noted Ruto.

This comes after the Sudanese General Ab-del Fattah Al-Burhan rejected President Ruto as a lead mediator on the peace process.

The initiative dubbed “Troika on Sudan ” includes representatives from Kenya, Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Somalia.

General Al Burhan had requested the process to be led by South Sudan President Salva Kiir, claiming that Kenya was supporting Mohammed Dagalo.

He claimed that Kenya was taking sides with the RSF in the ongoing conflict in Sudan and that Ruto has a personal relationship with Dagalo.

“The Government of the Republic of Sudan announces its rejection of Kenya’s chairmanship of the IGAD Committee concerned with addressing the current crisis in Sudan, given that the Kenyan government and its senior officials have adopted RSF positions, sheltered its elements and provided them with various types of support,” Sudan’s ministry of foreign affairs had noted.

In response, IGAD insisted on maintaining the process led by Ruto to pursue peace in Sudan.

IGAD officials outlined in an IGAD communique the resolutions will remain in effect until the eight-member bloc’s heads of state revise them.
