Urgent International Response to Address Crimes Committed by Hemeti Militia

The heinous crimes committed by the Hemeti militia demanded a decisive response from members of the U.S. Senate, both Democrats and Republicans, as they unanimously passed a resolution accusing the militia of genocide. This move also includes support for the International Criminal Court to investigate and hold Hemeti’s gangs accountable for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide. The resolution might even evolve into law.

Hemeti’s political influence is dwindling, especially amidst growing resentment from the Sudanese people who are rallying unprecedentedly for popular resistance against his militias. This raises the likelihood of Hemeti’s removal, with possible scenarios:

Scenario One: His allies and supporters may opt to end their association with him, considering the heavy burden placed upon them by global media scrutiny and international human rights organizations. Hemeti’s lack of trustworthiness may hasten their efforts to distance themselves, potentially using his longstanding liver problems as a subtle pretext, exacerbated by frequent travels for medical treatment in European countries, notably Germany.
Scenario Two: His national siblings, Qoni and Jumaa, along with their cousin Adel Daqlo, could independently or collectively work to sideline him, citing the preservation of family influence. Employing one of three methods, they might force his abdication, impose house arrest, or exile him abroad. The primary motivation here lies in avoiding international condemnation for Hemeti, coupled with a strategic move to evade U.S. sanctions that have already cost them millions of dollars, following the imposition on Abdul Rahim.
