South Sudan president Salva Kiir, has said that the opposing sides have agreed to a ceasefire for seven days further naming representatives of the peace talks to be held at an agreed venue.  

Over 500 people have died and many citizens have been displaced in the country, especially the capital Khartoum since the war broke out on April 15th. Nations around the world have been evacuating their citizens out of the country. Many peace talks have been taking place to avoid further escalation. 

Many of the Sudanese citizens have been fleeing to other bordering countries to escape the war and many stayed with nowhere to go due to their financial status. Water cuts and electricity outages have been a prevailing problem for the residents and hospitals becoming inhabitable for injured citizens waiting to be treated.

The UN Director General Antonio Guterres has arrived in Kenya today amid talks on the humanitarian situation in Sudan with President William Ruto.

The unrest in Sudan involves rival groups, the Sudanese army and a paramilitary group Rapid Support Forces (RSF). 

After a coup in 2021 which ended in a transitional government, Sudan has been under the army leadership with coup leader General Abdel-Fattah Burhan
