President Paul Kagame at a one-day AU Troika Summit on Libya and Sudan, convened by the current African Union Chairperson and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, in Cairo yesterday. The AU Troika is now composed of Rwanda as the former AU Chair, Egypt in its capacity as the current Chair, and South Africa as the next Chair.

In Sudan, protests that started in December previous year continue even after the military toppled president Omar al-Bashir.

The summit aims to discuss the developing conditions in Sudan and boosting joint work and consultations over the best methods to deal with developments in the country and continuing to support stability and peace. Protesters are now engaged in a peaceful standoff with the military rulers in an attempt to produce a transition to civilian rule.

Another summit on Libya, which will bring together the leaders of Rwanda, South Africa and the Congo with Sisi, will focus on "relaunching a political process".

Sisi, who holds the rotating African Union presidency, said that the African Union Commission Chairman Moussa Faki Mahamat had briefed the meeting on his recent talks in Khartoum.

Mr Sisi cautioned Sudanese political actors to "safeguard the state's order to prevent a slide into chaos".

The Egyptian president also called on the global community to "shoulder the pressing economic burden" created by Sudan's challenges.

You had to be paying close attention to pick up on these hints-but if you were, the foreshadowing for the final standoff is there. Missandei and Grey Worm are already an established canon ship, and they got a great scene this episode .

Sudan has been witnessing a clash between the Sudanese Transitional Military Council (TMC) and protesters over the handover to civilian rule, only 10 days after the ousting of strongman ruler Omar Al-Bashir.

Both have since had their membership restored.

General Khalifa Haftar is now waging an attack on the internationally recognised Libyan government in Tripoli, an assault which has already killed more than 250 people.

The United Nations says the Haftar offensive has also displaced more than 30,000 people.

Egypt is a strong ally of Haftar, who is also backed by the UAE and - according to the White House - was consulted by US President Donald Trump in a phone call last week.

Libya has been mired in chaos since the 2011 ouster of dictator Muammar Ghadafi and a series of global efforts have so far failed to unite the country.
