Sudan’s PM Abdalla Hamdock arrested, Military leader dissolves Government

Oct 25, 2021

Sudan’s military has placed Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok under house arrest after moving him to an unknown location for refusing to support a coup, according to the information ministry.

The chairman of Sudan’s ruling body General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan later announced the dissolution of the transitional government and the sovereign council and declared a nationwide state of emergency.

Sudan has been on edge since a failed coup plot last month unleashed bitter recriminations between military and civilian groups meant to be sharing power following the toppling of the country’s longtime leader Omar al-Bashir.

UN chief calls for immediate release of Sudan’s officials

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for the immediate release of Sudan’s prime minister and all other officials after the Sudan military seized power in the nation.

“I condemn the ongoing military coup in Sudan. Prime Minister Hamdok & all other officials must be released immediately. There must be full respect for the constitutional charter to protect the hard-won political transition. The UN will continue to stand with the people of Sudan,” Guterres wrote on Twitter.

‘A lot of trouble’ expected in Sudan: Correspondent

Al Jazeera’s Mohammed Vall, who has reported extensively on Sudan, said it was unlikely for the young people who are in the streets of Khartoum to stop their resistance following the announcement of the state of emergency that entails curfews.

“We can expect troubles ahead. They are not going to go back home easily,” he said.

“The civilians in the streets of Khartoum at the moment are armed to their teeth. We know that the armed factions that came from the fringes during the last three years came with their weapons. Nobody checked and because they are in power.”

To return to dialogue again will take a long time. And there will be a lot of trouble before it begins again.”

Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the military officer who heads a power-sharing ruling council, announced a state of emergency across the country and the dissolution of the transitional sovereign council and the government.
