Sudan’s Transitional Sovereign Council Relieves 5 Ministers, Appoints 4 New Ones

Sudan’s Transitional Sovereign Council announced in a statement on Wednesday that it had dismissed five ministers from the designated government and appointed four new ones.

The council’s chairman, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, issued a decision on Wednesday to terminate the assignment of five ministers from their duties, including Minister of Energy and Petroleum Mohamed Abdalla Mahmoud, Minister of Trade and Supply Amal Saleh Saad, Minister of Transport Hisham Ahmed Ali Abuzaid, Minister of Labor and Administrative Reform Suad Al-Tayeb Hassan, and Minister of Animal Resources Hafiz Ibrahim Abdul-Nabi, the statement said.

Al-Burhan then appointed Moheddine Naeem Mohamed Saeed as the minister of Energy and Mining, Al-Fateh Abdalla Yousif as the minister of Trade and Supply, Abu Bakr Abu Al-Qasim Abdalla as the minister of Transport, and Ahmed Ali Abdul-Rahman as the minister of Labor and Administrative Reform, according to the statement.

Al-Burhan directed the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs and relevant authorities to put the decision into effect, the statement said.

The cabinet reshuffle came amid ongoing deadly clashes between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the paramilitary in Khartoum and other areas since April 15. The clashes have killed up to 9,000 people, forced more than 5.6 million out of their homes and left 25 million in need of aid, UN Undersecretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Martin Griffiths said in a statement on Oct. 15.
