Sudanese military leaders demand PM Hamdock dissolve cabinet

PM Hamdok has reportedly rejected the push from military leaders to dissolve cabinet 


Disagreement between the civilian administration in Sudan under Abdella Hamdok and the Transitional Military Council (TMC) , under the chairmanship of Abdel Fattah al-Burhan seem to be getting worse. 

The TMC leader this week asked the prime minister to dissolve his cabinet ahead of a planned anti-government protest, which is said to be scheduled for Saturday, according to a report by Sudan Tribune. It is a faction of the Forces for Freedom and Change faction that is organizing the protest. 

Head of the Sovereign Council Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and his deputy Mohamed Hamdan Daglo aka ’Hemetti” on Thursday had a meeting with Prime Minister Hamdok  to discuss the political crisis that Sudan is experiencing, according to a report by Sudan Tribune. 

The military leaders want inclusion of entities that are behind the protest to be part of the PM Hamdok’s cabinet. The PM was also asked “to freeze the Empowerment Removal Committee to better tighten his grip on power.” 

Sudan Tribune cited what it called “multiple sources,” to report that  Mr. Hamdoc, however, rejected the call to dissolve his cabinet claiming that “He was chosen by the Forces for Freedom and Change to implement the democratic transition in the country after the collapse of the former regime.” 

In late September, a coup attempt by one of the military commanders was foiled and 21 military officers were arrested in connection with it. 

There has been increasing tension between the civilian component of the Sudanese government and the military leaders. The latter accuse the former of “forgetting the aim of the revolution” and chasing personal interest.

  1. Sudan, Sudan, Sudan! Ya-masaakeen Sudani!!! I tell you what! There is a stubborn affliction/addiction in that country since it was created under the auspices Gamal Abdel Nasser and his appeasing folks at 10 Downing Street in 1956. The military was designed to be a king maker(self or a well suited civilian) and sole ruler whenever it feels like it. That country needs an earth shattering revolution to wean itself from these leeching soldiers once and for all. But I don’t know how they can accomplish that when the source of this scourge is ‘doing well’ in Al-Qahirah. It is going to be Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Bashir is out and after a short recess Ya-sariq al-samsam Abdel-Fattah(or any other better choice for el-Sisi) will come in to be the mom and dad of that country for another 30 or more years. Sudan is just like and mechanical table clock. It starts clicking when the wise guys in Al-Qahirah wind it up in the morning and night. The mechanics are all camping out at Abdeen Palace. Poor Sudan!!!!

  2. Remembrancet
    Here we have the naked truth about the Continent of Africa — though Sudan makes sure that it does not come close to being called BLACK
    But, Sudan has always been my favourite country because of its captivating SONGS.. I remember that I used to say that the Sudanese DO NOT need arms to captivate and capture any country. Everything is changed “TODAY”, heading to disaster. THE END

  3. Well, well, well! When was the last time citizens of a country came out and demand to be ruled by the top brass? Don’t think too far in the past cuz that was what thousands of Sudanese demanded this week. Were they all civilians or mostly soldiers who went AWOL for that purpose that day? You figure it out. I tell you what. There will be no Abiy to save their tails this time. The wise guys in Al-Qahirah cannot afford some civilian mixed regime next door giving a free port for Turkish navy on Monday and saying ‘I got think about that one more time’ on Wednesday. Just wishy-washy vassal! So the process may have already started and be prepared to hear addressing like Al-raees Abdel Fattah coming to the neighborhood near you!!! Poor Sudan!!!!
