Museveni advises Sudan to focus on politics of interest instead of identity and stop the war
In a meeting held at Entebbe, President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda has emphasized the need for Sudan to focus on politics of interest instead of politics of identity. This advice was reiterated during a briefing by Amb. Dafallah Al-Haj Ali, the Special Envoy of the Chairman of the Transitional Sovereignty Council in Sudan, who updated Museveni on the current situation in the country.
The President stressed that a ceasefire is vital to bring about lasting peace in Sudan and enable the people to elect their leaders as the true owners of their country. Museveni further pointed out that the Sudan Army should not consider themselves as the sole proprietors of the nation, as it belongs to the people.
Museveni's advice comes in the wake of ongoing political instability in Sudan, with violence and unrest being reported in several parts of the country. The President believes that politics based on identity has been a major cause of the conflict in Sudan, and that the government must prioritize the interests of the people above all else.
The meeting between President Museveni and Amb. Dafallah Al-Haj Ali highlights the need for regional cooperation in addressing the crisis in Sudan. Museveni has been a vocal advocate for peace in the region, and his advice to Sudan could go a long way in bringing stability and security to the troubled nation.
With the Sudanese government and rebel groups currently engaged in peace talks, Museveni's message of unity and a focus on the interests of the people could serve as a guiding principle for negotiators to reach a lasting agreement.
