Sudan faces an incoming coup
Sudan Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok has been recently been put under house arrest together with a civilian of the sovereign council and 4 cabinet ministers by unrecognized military personnel. This came after the unknown organization attempted a failed coup just a month ago, as they tried to take over the nation’s media premises. Sudan over the past years has been facing a dangerous transition mutilated by power struggles and political divisions since President Omar-al-Bashir took over in 2019 April. Since 2019, Sudan has been under the rule of a civilian-military leadership, of which its main job was to oversee Sudan transitioning to full civilian leadership.
The Forces For Freedom and Change (FFC), which took over the anti-Bashir opposition protests claimed that the crisis facing Sudan right now is looking like a creeping incoming coup is about to happen. There has been intense tension between the two oppositions, although divisions hiked up after the failed coup back in September this year. it was only last week when thousands of the Sudanese people marched in their cities to demonstrate and want the power back to the civilians, while some of them sat outside the President’s palace to demand military rule to return.
Hamdok described the transitional government splits to be the most dangerous and worst crisis. He then went forward to deny an agreement on the cabinet reshuffle. Analysts provided information that the mass protests have shown great support for the civilian-led democracy, although the street demonstrations may push for a return of the military rule.
