Kenyan President William Ruto on Wednesday called on the warring parties in the Sudan conflict to embrace dialogue and work toward the attainment of lasting peace in the country.

Ruto, who held talks in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, with the visiting leader of Sudan’s paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, lauded proponents of the peace initiatives in Jeddah, the coastal city of Saudi Arabia, for agreeing to work with the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), a trade bloc in Eastern Africa, to bring about a political settlement that would create a lasting peace in Sudan.

“The Jeddah talks should bring about a political settlement that would bring a lasting solution to the people of Sudan,” he said in a statement issued in Nairobi after holding talks with the RSF leader.

The conflict in Sudan has left the country facing one of the fastest unfolding humanitarian crises globally, with unprecedented needs in such a short period. More than 6.7 million people have fled their homes since the conflict between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the RSF started in mid-April 2023, according to the United Nations.

The conflict has left more than 9,000 people killed, with 25 million more in need of aid, according to the UN.
