Govt evacuates Zim nationals from Sudan

The government has evacuated more than 100 Zimbabweans from  from the capital of Khartoum to the Port of Sudan where transport arrangements are underway.

In a statement yesterday, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade spokesperson Mr Livit Mugejo said they were closely following the evolving conflict in Sudan which has put Zimbabwean nationals in that country in danger.

The Ministry managed to secure buses to evacuate people to Port Sudan in the UN convoy.

The closure of airports has affected the ability of the Ministry to urgently assist with the repatriation of Zimbabweans.

According to UN agencies, over the course of 10 days of fighting at least 427 people have died and 3,700 wounded.
