Sudanese Protesters Continue To Demand Army Hand Power To Civilians

Sudanese protesters are continuing to demand that the transitional military council running the country hands over to a civilian-led administration.

On Monday the African Union (AU) called on Sudan’s military to transfer power to a civilian led political authority within 15 days or face suspension from the AU.

Last Thursday President Omar al-Bashir was overthrown by the military following months of protests.

The following day the military leader in charge resigned under pressure from the protesters.

The transitional military council has not yet responded to the African Union’s call for Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and his nine colleagues to return the country to civilian rule within 15 days.

Protesters have demanded a total change of leadership with civilians in charge.
