According to Sudan News Agency, Al-Burhan reassured Al-Mirghani –who heads the Democratic Unionist Party– was in good health.
The leader of the military coup in Sudan, Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan, visited the Sudanese Khatmiyya sect’s leader, Muhammad Othman Al-Mirghani, at his residence in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.
Al-Burhan arrived in Cairo yesterday, Wednesday, on an official visit; the first for him after his October 25th 2021 military coup against the civilian government.
Press sources stated this week that Al-Mirghani intends to finally return to Sudan next April, after more than 10 years spent abroad.
Al-Mirghani had put forward in mid-March a national initiative for a “Sudanese-Sudanese” dialogue, which he hopes will bring together “the common denominators from all previous initiatives.”
The leader of the Khatmiyya also happens to head the Democratic Unionist Party in Sudan.
After Al-Bashir’s downfall, the party curbed its political activity in Sudan, but that did not prevent it from publicly showing support for the transitional government.
Recently, the party signed memorandum of understanding with armed movements that have not signed peace agreements with the transitional government, including the Popular Movement led by Abdel Aziz Al-Hilu, in addition to the Sudan Liberation Movement led by Abdel Wahed Mohamed Nour.
