The government has called on all the Sudanese stakeholders to resolve their internal issues in an amicable and peaceful manner and speedily establish a civilian led Transitional Authority in Sudan.
The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Netumbo Nandi – Ndaitwah said this in a statement following the recent developments in Sudan which have resulted in the loss of lives.
Nandi – Ndaitwah said the increasing political deadlock has led to on-going instability in the country, exacerbating further insecurity.
“Namibia reaffirms the African Union Peace and Security Council’s Communique of 6 June 2019 on Sudan, calling for all Sudanese stakeholders to return to the negotiations urgently to arrive at an inclusive accord, paving the way for a civilian- led Transitional Authority,” she said.
Meanwhile, she passed on her condolences to the families of the deceased and further called on all stakeholders to observe and uphold the rights of citizens.
