Sudan Tribune Op-ed: Sudan’s National “Monologue”

On October 10, Sudan President Omar al-Bashir launched a purported National Dialogue in Khartoum, nearly two years after he had first announced his intention to hold a forum to resolve the country’s numerous social, economic, and political issues. In the intervening period, Bashir and the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) handpicked participants, naming a congregation of mostly minor splinter parties, perhaps upward of 100 parties in all. Bashir and his ruling party determined the National Dialogue agenda unilaterally, setting up a 7+7 steering committee of seven parties allied with the government and seven opposition parties. Bashir also gave himself the authority to oversee this exercise.  Read More »

African Union Meeting on South Sudan

Sep 24, 2015


Groups Urge Support for Hybrid Court

(Nairobi, September 24, 2015) – The African Union Peace and Security Council will meet in New York on September 26, 2015, on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly to discuss South Sudan

In a letter to the African Union (AU) chairperson, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, the Enough Project joined with 37 South Sudanese and international organizations, urging that the meeting should be used to support the establishment of an AU commission-created hybrid court for South Sudan. The court would try grave crimes committed in the country’s recent conflict, as provided for in the August peace agreement between the parties to the conflict. The organizations also urged Dlamini Zuma to help ensure the long-awaited publication of the report by the AU Commission of Inquiry on South Sudan. 

“An independent hybrid court could make an essential contribution for South Sudanese, who are looking for justice as part of sustainable peace following a war that has destroyed civilian towns and villages, killed thousands of civilians, displaced over 2 million people, and plunged much of the country into humanitarian crisis,” the groups said in their letter. “The AU Commission should make clear its support for the hybrid court from the outset.”
