The control over the leadership of the Central Reserve Forces
In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful
We are grateful for the remarkable accomplishments of our soldiers, who bravely protect our citizens from the former regime of military dictator Omar al-Bashir, which desires to regain power.
Today, our courageous forces successfully assumed control over the leadership of the Central Reserve Forces, a part of Sudan’s police that has been fighting alongside the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF). We had hoped that this entity would distance itself from the ongoing conflict orchestrated by the SAF and its backers from the former regime, which endeavours to sow discord among our people.
We have consistently warned the Central Reserve Forces and its leaders against participating in a battle that does not concern them as we fight to obstruct the coup leaders’ attempts to escalate the violence. Unfortunately, our advice was not heeded.
We hereby urge all honourable individuals within various government bodies, especially the esteemed members of the SAF, to align themselves with the will of the people. We implore them to disassociate from the coup leaders and let them face the inevitable consequences that our valiant heroes will soon deliver.
Today’s victory will strengthen our resolve to continue advancing in the restoration of civil governance and guiding our nation toward democracy and a peaceful transfer of power.
We pledge to persist in our unwavering support for democracy, dismantling the stronghold of the coup forces and ensuring that the perpetrators responsible for the loss of innocent lives are brought to justice.
