Sudanese RSF Leader, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, Meets Uganda’s President Museveni to Discuss Conflict Resolution

Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, the head of Sudan’s paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), disclosed on Wednesday that he held talks with Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni. This marks Dagalo’s first confirmed trip outside Sudan since the conflict erupted in April involving the RSF and the Sudanese army.

The meeting, confirmed by both parties, revolved around the ongoing developments in Sudan, with a focus on Dagalo’s aspirations for peace talks to bring an end to the conflict that has severely impacted Khartoum and triggered forced displacements in Darfur.

While the RSF has been accused of atrocities, including killings and looting, they deny these allegations. Recently, the RSF captured Wad Madani, the capital city of Sudan.

In a related development, the Sudanese foreign ministry stated that Dagalo couldn’t travel to Djibouti for a scheduled meeting with Sudan’s army chief, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, citing “technical issues.” The meeting has been rescheduled for an undisclosed date in January. A Reuters source suggested that the postponement might be due to disagreements between the involved parties, but details remain unclear.
