On 17th September 2021, the Bija tribe (which is one of the biggest population components in Eastern Sudan)  started the lockout of the main harbor of the country through barricades in several cities and pints on the highway linking the harbor with other parts of Sudan besides closing the exporting and importing pipelines.

They raised several demands including bringing an end to their marginalization, cancelation of Eastern Sudan path stipulated in the Juba Peace Agreement, changing the political incubator or expanding it, dissolving the Dismantlement Committee to be replaced by the Anti-corruption commission, dissolving the current government, and the formation of the military council to rule the transitional period to be followed by-elections.

In November the Bija Council suspended the embargo for only one month to give the central government chance to respond to their demands.

South Sudan interfered in an attempt to bring an end to the crisis and the return of life to normality considering that the blocking of the east had it negative impact on Sudan in general because Port Sudan is the main harbor for imports and exports of the country.

South Sudan mediation emphasized the importance of reaching an agreement and that was during their meeting with the First Vice President of the Transitional Sovereign Council, 1st Lt. Gen. Mohamed Hamdan Daglo, and the chief of the South Sudan mediation team, Tut Galwak in the presence of the Juba Peace Agreement signatories.

Now, it is apparent that the crisis of South Sudan is about to be resolved, but as Darfur region is witnessing a kind of chaos in several parts besides the protests in other parts of the country.

In his address, Gen. Al-Burhan called on all the parties to launch dialogue sessions, but his call did not find any response, and this is clear in the continuation of the youth absurd protests which have no vision of a clear political roadmap.

Now Dr. Hamdok tendered his resignation which included a keyword towards resolving the current crisis which lasted for six decades, i.e. restoring to roundtable dialogue to represent all the Sudanese communities and the state to come out with a national charter and roadmap to accomplish the democratic transformation, hence get rid of this controversial constitutional document.
