Africans Rising for Unity, Justice, Peace and Dignity, a non- governmental organization has condemned the death and destruction caused by the war in Sudan and calls for immediate cessation of hostilities so as to enable Sudanese citizen have their life back.

 

The Africans Rising Movement Coordinateor, Mr Hardi Yakubu, stated this ahead of the Day of the Solidarity with Sudan, which comes up on the 2nd of December, 2023.

 

Mr Yakubu, lamented on the eight months of trauma, bloodshed, terror, anguish, despair, sexual violence and rape against women and young girls since the fight between the two warring factions of the Sudan military, Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) broke out.

 

He said the war is an outcome of failed political processes which has further plunged the country into one of the worst humanitarian crises. “With little media attention, many are not even aware of it. We must not allow Sudan to be totally forgotten. Those who escaped death by bullets, are now struggling to survive as they face acute hunger and starvation.  For how long will this continue? We must act now!  We are therefore calling on everyone across the globe to join us in demanding an end to the war in Sudan. 

 

The Movement Coordinateor, Hardi Yakubu, noted that Saturday 2nd December, 2023, is set aside as the Day of Solidarity with Sudan and we are coming out to raise awareness and show solidarity with our fellow Africans in Sudan.

This follows our recently launched Pan-African Solidarity humanitarian initiative for Sudan aimed to rally and mobilise resources and other humanitarian assistance to support and prevent any further loss of life and indignity from this war to those in the country and refugee camps in the neighbouring countriesHe explained

Mr Yakubu added that “I am very disappointed by African governments for the total lack of support and solidarity on the war in Sudan. Are they waiting for Europeans and Americans to solve this issue? Upon all the deaths and destruction, there is little concern or action. This is unacceptable. African citizens must rise up to the occasion”He added

According to the United Nations, the death toll now stands at 9,000, over 5.6 million people have been displaced and another 25 million in need of urgent humanitarian assistance.
