On Saturday, in Khartoum, hundreds of protesters called for the resignation of the transitional government, blamed for the lack of initiative to end the political slump.
The demonstrators responded to the call of a seditious faction of the Forces for Freedom and Change (FLC), a civil coalition of the “revolution”, led by two former rebel leaders, including the executive finance minister.
The day before, the chief executive admitted the failure of his team, citing an unprecedented crisis.
“The serious political crisis that we are experiencing at the moment, I would not exaggerate by saying that it is the worst and the most dangerous which not only threatens the transition, but which threatens our entire country.
This crisis was not created today, it did not fall to us from the sky and it did not take us back at all. I spoke about it and I diagnosed it in detail: it is due to the absence of an agreement between the forces of the revolution and the parties of change for the achievement of the objectives of the December revolution, the aspirations of our people to freedom, peace, democracy and justice, ” said Abdalla Hamdok, Sudanese Prime Minister.
Galloping inflation against the backdrop of IMF austerity measures, crisis between civilians and soldiers, elections postponed to 2023, the hope aroused by the Sudanese spring seems to give way to hope in a country which has just foiled an attempted coup State attributed to relatives of the ex-regime.
What to fear an eternal restart. “We need a military government, the current cabinet has failed and only the army can bring us justice and equality,” said Abboud Ahmed, a farmer who describes himself as “poor”.
For government supporters, these protesters are under the thumb of the former regime.
