Mutua said that the government is in communication with national carrier Kenya Airways (KQ) in a bid to try and evacuate them “once things cool off”.
“We have almost three thousand Kenyans stuck in Sudan. We are in communication with KQ, and once things cool off, we will bring the Kenyans back here. I advise Kenyans in foreign countries to register with the embassies. That way, we can easily contact them,” Mutua said.
On Saturday, clashes erupted between the army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) paramilitary group.
Sudan, once the largest and one of the most geographically diverse states in Africa, split into two countries in July 2011 after the people of the south voted for independence.
On Saturday, KQ suspended flights to Khartoum with their communications team saying passengers would be advised as the situation which is being monitored unfolds.
