The government of Uganda has successfully evacuated over 200 nationals who had been trapped in Khartoum, Sudan.

This follows a civil war that broke out between the Army units loyal to the de facto leader, General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), a notorious paramilitary force commanded by Sudan’s deputy leader, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, better known as Hemedti.

According to Ugandan Ambassador to Sudan Dr. Rashid Yahya Ssemuddu, 208 Ugandans, including diplomatic staff, students, and workers, were evacuated from Khartoum by road to Gadabi, Ethiopia.

Since last week, there has been fierce fighting around Khartoum, according to reports.

Reports indicate that over 400 people have reportedly lost their lives, with over 2,000 injured and displaced.

More than 4,000 Nigerians, 400 Kenyans, 210 Tanzanians, 200 Moroccans, 77 South Africans, and 73 Ghanaians are said to be trapped in the war-torn Sudan.

Khartoum International Airport remains closed amid ongoing fighting.
