The government of Kenya through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has urgently requested Kenyans living in Sudan to reach out by calling +249 900194854.
In a statement on Saturday, April 15, the government advised Kenyans in Sudan to shelter in place, be careful and to stay indoors.
“Dear Kenyans in Sudan, we are concerned about and are monitoring the evolving situation in Sudan. We advise that you shelter in place, be careful and do not go outdoors, and get in touch with us urgently via +249 900 194 854,” the statement read.
This comes after heavy gunfire erupted between the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and the Sudan Army on Saturday.
President William Ruto has called for a peaceful resolution to the crisis in Sudan. He said the outbreak of violence would affect the nation's stability and reverse the gains made.
The Head of State has also said he is consulting with the regional leadership and other relevant international partners to further dialogue and mediation in Sudan.
“Kenya and the IGAD States are available and ready to contribute to the resolution of this crisis. I am consulting with the regional leadership and other relevant international partners to seek ways to support dialogue and mediation,” said Ruto.
