In a statement issued on Thursday, Mamabolo praised the Sudanese parties participating in the Juba process for peace in Sudan for their commitment to a cessation of hostilities agreed on 21 October 2019.

"I, therefore, take this opportunity, at this critical juncture in the history of Sudan to once again urge Abdul Wahid Al-Nur, the leader of the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA/AW), to join the process as the Coronavirus pandemic requires an absolutely united front to save lives," he said.

"I stand with the people of Sudan at this critical hour, and assure the nation of UNAMID’s support," UNAMID fief further stressed.

The exiled rebel leader refused to join the peace process in Juba but pledged to launch an initiative to end the armed conflicts in Sudan saying it should be held inside the country and include all the political groups and stakeholders.

However, four days ago, al-Nur postponed his initiative saying he would announce it after the end of the current global health crisis of novel coronavirus.
