June 10, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – Senior diplomatic sources in Khartoum confirmed reports that Sudan’s ambassador to Uganda, Adil Hussein Sharfi, has abandoned his position and left to London.

Several pro-opposition websites claimed that Sharfi plans to apply for political asylum in the United Kingdom.

But a diplomatic source at Sudan’s foreign ministry told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday that Sharfi handed over his work to his deputy, ruling out that the move was motivated by political reasons.

The same source described Sharfi as a highly competent diplomat, saying that he has likely requested optional retirement.

However, some of Sharfi’s relatives stressed in a Facebook post that the ambassador was not satisfied with Khartoum’s foreign policy, noting he is a vocal opponent of the ruling National Congress Party’s (NCP) policies.

They also noted that successive foreign ministers deliberately marginalised Sharfi and prevented him from promotion and work abroad, saying he was only promoted after he won the case he filed at the labour court against the former foreign minister, Mustafa Osman Ismail.

According to his relatives, Sharfi did not carry out official diplomatic tasks at the embassy in Kampala and his role was confined to resolving problems facing Sudanese nationals in Uganda.

Sudan’s foreign ministry has seen several defections since the current regime came to power in 1989.

Last year, the Sudanese ambassador to Venezuela, Abdel-Rahman Sharfi, left his post and fled to Canada, while Sudan’s ambassador to Malaysia, Omer Osman, also abandoned his position and left for the United States.

      Black Africa,
      You know, I am still studying this issue from its all dimensions to find out the real reason behind the ambassador decision and the hidden part of it before I rush and make my judgement!
      Thanks for asking anyway!

        Satirical.

        On South Sudan you’re quick to judge based on prejudices but when it’s closer to home you analyse critically.

        This is patriotism at best and missing in South Sudan.

        I hope they learn from you...!

          Grader,

          I agree with your 1st comment but disagree with the notion that its due to patriotism. Dirty Jalaby is a renowned NCP propagandist/ apologist.

          The SRF and likes are the true patriots of the land of the Blacks! Remember what Edmond Burke said about good men doing nothing in the face of evil?

              Mr. No Logic, tell me man, when will you think like a wise man? when will you get rid of your nasty brain?
              We’re the real citizens of Sudan, we’re the sons of great great king Piye and his son Taharqa, we had great and real civilization that goes back to thousands years that Africa had ever known in its history before!

                Mr. No Logic, do you know who was this man? this man was our great great grandmother, he was the great Nubian King Tahraqa, Look at his picture carefully, do we look like him or not? yes we really do!

                  Look at his nose, look at his libs,look at his eyes, do you think Al-Hilo or Aggar looks like him? of course not at all!

                  But look at the person beside him, Mohamed Wardy (you know him), do they have the same face the same look? absolutely exactly the same because he was our great grandfather!

                      Mr. No Logic, we’re the original people of Sudan and we look exactly like our great great grandfathers of Nubian kings in the north,we had a great civilization in history,we were practicing the civilization while your people wondering naked and without wearing cloths in the African jungles let alone knowing the meaning of the civilization
                      Go and play out there!

              Abu Dirty Jalabia, dont be upset! Sudan litterally translates into the ’land of the Blacks’. Agar is from the region of the Funj kingdom, whilst Al-hilu’s mother is a Nubian, different to the Arabized Nubians of the far North. Oh yeah, ’Black’ Pharaohs, not ‘Arab’ ya baleed. My brain is on a different platform to yours my dear Arab-wana-be. lol!

          Grader,
          It doesn’t require any deep thinking to figure out why high profile south diplomats quit their jobs and ask western governments an asylum because Juba can’t pay their monthly salaries because the few oil money revenue is used to compensate the mercenaries of SPLA-N, JEM & UPDF!
          Government in Juba has no objectives, truely visionless
