“We urge the Uganda Regime, through the Foreign Affairs Ministry & our Mission in Khartoum to immediately initiate diplomatic measures of rescuing the thousands of Uganda Nationals caught up by the Sudan armed Conflict,” he added.

Nkunyingi condemned the Uganda regime and Foreign Ministry for failure to issue timely travel advice for Uganda nationals exiting for or through Sudan.

“We accordingly advise Uganda travelers to avoid travel to or through Sudan for now until the situation normalizes,” he said adding,

“We encourage passengers to use alternative transit routes instead of Sudan airports or borders. WE DEMAND that the Uganda Foreign Ministry & Embassy in Sudan, urgently verify the actual number of Uganda nationals currently in Sudan and initiate measures for alternative rescue shelters for them including allowing them access to Uganda embassy premises,” he added
