The South African Government has called on the Military Transitional Council in Sudan to exercise total restrain and to protect the lives and property of people in that country.

This comes at a time when reports have put the death toll to almost hundred after the military used force to disperse protesters who demanded the council to hand over power to civilian rule.

While the United Nations Security Council and the UN is working around the clock to try and find solutions to the Sudan crisis,  Pretoria, as the incoming chair of the African Union (AU), has raised concerns about the deteriorating situation in Khartoum.

It has called for constructive engagement and dialogue after the military had announced disengagement.
