I see the Reuters article on the port deal in #Sudan generated some heated debate. I’m late to the party but would like to weigh in on a few points.…
1. It should be clear that the future civilian, democratic government will welcome private investment that develops Sudan’s resources & creates jobs, especially for youth. Port investments are vital; efficient logistics are needed for agricultural productivity and lower costs.
2. Now is not the time to negotiate or announce large port investments (or privatize SOEs). Why? In similar experiences elsewhere, the key issue is political risk in several forms, as well as transparency.

This🧵on April-May incidents in #Darfur has become too lengthy. I’m starting a new one!

Sadly, since I started the first thread, incidents with deadly outcome occurred almost every day!
I hope by some miracle, this will be the last.

In its May 17th edition, #Eritrea's newspaper, Haddas Eritrea, had an editorial titled, "The #TPLF's new war adventurism: Why & for what objectives".
The editorial asserts that the main target of this latest TPLF war preparations is Eritrea & its people.…
«Because they never learn from their previous disastrous experiences, are never bothered by massive deaths of the people of #Tigray about whom they pretend to care, & the only thing they care about is their hunger for power, #TPLF are now beating the war drums for the 3rd time.»
«In #Ethiopia, #TPLF's lust for power has as its aim to control again Welkait, Tegede & Humera, where they've committed genocide in their 27 years of misrule, & to open the corridor to the #Sudan, thereby plunging the country into chaos & disintegration.»

My uncle #Idris Ramadan Eilos.
He joined the struggle at the age of 19 in 1967.
He spent 3 years in the second province and was sent to #Iraq in 1970 for more military training. He came back in 1972 and continued his work as a fighter.
In 1975 he was elected as a member of the Revolutionary Council and was chosen to be the deputy of Hamid Temsah. In 1977 he was spearheading the liberation of cities in Gash, Setit and Barka, as the second man. He lead the liberation of #Geluj, #UmHajar, and #Tesennay.
In 1978 he was chosen to be amongst the leadership who will liberate #Barentu. Sadly on the 8th May he was martyred in the siege of Barentu. Today marks 44 years since his Martyrdom and every minuet that I think about Eritrea I look upto his legacy.

Just IN: 'Medicalised #FGM' - #Uganda Indicts #Kenya and #Sudan 😯
Ugandan girls and women are being mutilated from hospitals in the neighbouring Kenya and South Sudan, a senior Govt official has revealed.
The State Minister for Gender and Culture, Ms Peace Regis Mutuuzo, says
some girls and women from Karamoja and Sebei sub-regions sneak into Kenya and South Sudan to secretly undergo medical mutilation.
Ms Mutuuzo said she got to know about the horrible stories of medicalised mutilation last year in September when she led a delegation of legislators
for a field mission in the FGM practising districts.
She said whereas some girls and women were voluntarily seeking medical mutilation, others were being mutilated against their will during child birth.
“Medicalised genital mutilation is not happening in Uganda. It is happening

North Africa, Ethiopia and Middle East long range rainfall forecast bulletin:

The interaction between the two greatest Equatorial forests is having a massive impact on weather (see quoted thread for more).
This bulletin begins with a look at Ethiopia where rains over the #HornOfAfrica have been steadily building in April (img: today). A strong big rainy season is indicated by this, notwithstanding a strong La Nina which is typically associated with droughts (see quoted thread ^^).
We can see a glimpse of the GERD today - Easter Sunday in the Western Church - through the clouds (Rosieres Top Right - GERD Bottom Left). Satellite images of the dam - which this year will have its 2nd filling - may be increasingly hard to get with increasing cloud.

#Ethiopia #NorthAfrica #MiddleEast long rang rainfall forecast bulletin 2022 - #1

Around this time last year I began posting rainfall forecasts for East Africa & Horn of Africa. These expanded to include North Africa & ME.

I am restarting them today.
The big picture. The West African Monsoon is undergoing an intense period and significant amounts of atmospheric is transiting the Sahara bringing clouds & rain to the Middle East.

Rain forecasts for East Africa show significant rain over the coming fortnight.
Sub thread: Covers the past two weeks as West African Monsoon was building. Interestingly the rains appear to be arriving in the Horn and East Africa at roughly the same time, and at similar intensity to last year.

Arriving by the thousands from #Sudan to #Saudi, the Sudanese mercenaries were handed US-made weapons and uniforms. Then, they were taken to Al-Hudaydah, #Taiz and Aden. Paid in Saudi riyals, 14-year-old amateurs were paid some $480 a month,
while experienced officers from the #Janjaweed were paid $530 a month – both cheaper than any other mercenary, including Colombians.

The RSF profited $350 million from its role in #Yemen.

Ahmed, who was 25-years-old at the time when he was sent to Al-#Hudaydah,
commented on this experience: “The Saudis would give us a phone call and then pull back.

There were two ways through which young #Sudanese – even minors under 18 – got recruited to #Yemen. By force and deception, and by Omar Al Bashir’s thirst for power.

Estimates and reports suggest that up to 15,000 #Sudanese mercenaries were fighting
in #Yemen.
By force and deception: Many Sudanese became victims of forced conscription into becoming mercenaries for a private US firm, Black Shield Security Services.

The contracts signed by young #Sudanese men, which had an e-Visa to enter the #UAE from Khartoum attached
to it, had “profession: Security Guard” written on them.
Up to 15,000 Sudanese mercenaries were reportedly deployed in Yemen, who, according to the current #Sudanese Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok, were reduced to 5,000. Many of them were children.

Today's sanctions announcement by the US on #Sudan's Central Reserve Police is, on its face, a welcome, albeit long overdue announcement. It targets clearly one, but by no means all, of those security entities responsible for the violent crackdowns and…
killings of protesters since the Oct coup. While it is better late than never, its also too smart by half. First, it uses an existing authority under Global Magnitsky to target human rights abusers that could have been deployed months ago. It didnt need to take this long.
Second, by not being targeted against individuals, which could have been done under GloMag, the US has targeted an entire organization which will make any effort to deal with them or reform them at a future date that much harder. Third, by not targeting people at least closer to

🚨 ANALYSIS (1/3)

How will #Russia’s war in #Ukraine impact #Sudan?

1️⃣ The war may influence the power dynamics of the #SudanCoup regime.

📝 Featuring insights from:


🚨 ANALYSIS (2/3)

2️⃣ #Sudan’s economic crisis will intensify as #Russia’s war in #Ukraine raises global fuel prices.

This will worsen the suffering of a poverty-stricken population already struggling with soaring inflation, cost of living and fuel crises.

🚨 ANALYSIS (3/3)

3️⃣ Russia’s war in Ukraine will worsen #Sudan’s bread crisis by increasing wheat prices.

However, the #SudanCoup regime is unlikely to implement policy solutions for cheaper bread from @ResistCommittee.
