Tension Between Sudan Military & Government Grows


Al Jazeera English, Sudan Military: One of Sudan military leaders says the transitional government that took over during the 2019 coup needs to take a more active role.

But politicians claim the military has resisted reforms and accused it of trying to seize power.

After a war of words, the military withdrew its protection of the civilian committee formed to dismantle the former governing party and fight corruption, prompting demonstrations in support of the civilian leadership in Khartoum.

Al Jazeera’s Hiba Morgan reports on how an attempted coup last week has worsened tension between the military and the government’s civilian faction.

The Sudanese Revolution was a major shift of political power in Sudan that started with street protests throughout Sudan on 19 December 2018. In August and September 2019, the TMC formally transferred executive power to a mixed military–civilian collective head of state, the Sovereignty Council of Sudan, and to a civilian prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok and a mostly civilian cabinet.
