According to DW News Africa reporter Christine Mhundwa, thousands of Sudanese are demonstrating for a civilian government, while others are calling for a return to military rule. So what’s behind the split?
So far, Sudan has been led by a transitional council since former President Ubar al-Bashir was dismissed from the leadership by the military in 2019.
After numerous conflicts within the council, which consists of military representatives and civilians, it is evident that they cannot find common ground to rule the country. Moreover, during Sudan’s economic crisis, some began to feel that the military still had too much power, while others were demanding that the generals be even more at the helm. As a result, the country’s population is now divided between supporters of democracy and people who want a dictatorship again.
The protests are still peaceful; however, how will this never-ending division of the parties develop?
