What lessons can Khartoum learn from South Sudan for its peace monitoring mechanism?
The transitional government in Sudan is trying to create a system for monitoring the peace agreement signed one year ago.
After president Omar al-Bashir was deposed in 2019, a deal was struck to share power between military and civilian leaders for a transitional period leading to elections in December next year. But the ruling Sovereignty Council set up by that deal is stealthily finding ways to postpone the polls, which now will not happen before 2024.
The Darfur rebels and their sworn enemies, the Janjaweed militias, who are currently serving as auxiliaries on the battle fronts in Libya and Yemen, have been invited by their commanders to return to Darfur following the signing of a peace agreement in early October.
