Days after a military coup under the leadership of General Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman al-Burhan, which dissolved the civilian administration under the premiership of Abdalla Hamdok, the African Union on Wednesday suspended Sudan from “all activities”, as reported by DW, until the restoration of civilian administration. 

The African Union condemned the dissolution of the civilian administration as “unconstitutional” and the take-over of power by the military. 

Earlier this week, African Union Chairperson, Moussa Faki Mahamat, called for the resumption of talks between the civilian and military leaders “within the framework of the Political Declaration and the Constitutional Decree.” 

He also called for the release of Prime Minister Abdella Hamdok who was detained in an undisclosed location.  The Military leaders on Wednesday released the prime minister amid international pressure. 

It may mean that Sudan will not take part in the African Union led tripartite negotiation over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) until restoration of the civilian government to power. 

Meanwhile, there are reports that the released PM Abdella Hamdok spoke to the U.S. Secretary of State , Anthony Blinken, who reportedly expressed support to Sudan.

Mr. Hamdok has also received support from the European Union. The Union still recognizes him as Prime Minister of Sudan. 

Apart from pressure from western countries on Al-Burhan, there has been a protest across Sudan following the arrest of PM Abdella Hamdok.

  1. The Sudanese military junta leadership believes Sudan is an Arab country anyways, just like the Egyptians do. If you ask Egyptians they will tell you they are not Africans, they don’t like to be associated with AFRICA what so ever.

    Humble Reaction, 28 Oct 2021
    VERY WELL DONE: AU Chairperson, Moussa Faki Mahamat.
    It is way past TIME that the voice of AFRICA be heard loud and clear, as custodians of Africa.
    It is way past TIME that AFRICA belongs to AFRICANS.
    It is way past TIME that AFRICA retrieves her Natural Dignity and Pride.
    THANK YOU AU CHAIRMAN Faki Mahamat for the golden example and guidance for the NEW YOUNG AFRICAN COMERS ; NOT the present Africans, deeply sad to say. We know why, without going into the details.
    Finally, please accept my humble congratulation to you and your entire Family.
    It is hoped that YOU, SIR, will be the lime light of our AFRICA the beautiful, and naturally blessed. Continent, before marauders came along to blemish its natural character and beauty. THE END
