A day after hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets demanding a civilian government, the UN special envoy to Sudan, Volker Barrett, discussed with the ousted Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok the mediation options and possible next steps.
“We discussed mediation options for Sudan and ways forward,” Beretz said in a tweet. I will continue these efforts with partners in Sudan.
Hamdock is “in good health, but he is still under house arrest,” he added.
The announcement of mediation efforts within the international community and Sudan came ahead of protests on Saturday, with no mention of their results.
Sources close to Hamdock said he would release the prisoners and return to a power-sharing agreement.
Today, protesters block the roads in the capital, Khartoum, a day after tens of thousands of people took to the streets demanding a civilian government.
After the protests subsided in Khartoum and Omturman on Saturday night, protesters returned to the streets on Sunday morning and used stones and tires to block roads.
With shops closed in Khartoum, many government employees are refusing to work as part of the struggle.
