The Mo Ibrahim Foundation says it is deeply concerned by the situation in Sudan

Sudan's Transitional Military Council says a number of soldiers have been taken into custody following the killing of dozens of peaceful protesters in Khartoum last week. The protesters were demanding that the TMC, which has been in power since long-time ruler Omar al-Bashir was deposed and arrested in a peaceful military coup in April, hand power to a civilian-led government. An attempt at mediating the crisis between the TMC and opposition groups by Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who had met with both sides in Khartoum on Friday, is yet to show results. The Mo Ibrahim Foundation says it is deeply concerned by the situation in Sudan. Abdoulie Janneh is Executive Director, Liaison with Governments and Institutions in Africa for the Mo Ibrahim Foundation
