Many hundreds of thousands have protested since Abdel Fattah al-Burhan dissolved the government on October 25. He carried out a military coup to evade accountability and to protect Sudan’s assets, which he sees as his own private.
Thousands have protested since Abdel Fattah al-Burhan – Sudan’s de facto leader since the 2019 revolution – dissolved the fragile government on October 25. This report was made last year. But flashbacks are important sometimes.
It must be remembered that al-Burhan ordered a military coup at that time only, and only, because the date of his handover of power to a civilian government was approaching. Until then, he had kept Omar al Bashir’s spirit alive. With a civilian government, the prospects were high that his old friend Dictator Omar al-Bashir would be extradited to the ICC.
Another important factor was that with a civilian government he could be held accountable for his crimes. Crimes include rape, looting, theft, murder, mass murder crimes against humanity and high treason. The crimes would have kept both national and international courts occupied for several years. And the same goes for his servant Mohamed Dagalo.
Then there is also a significant economic factor. The military has enriched itself considerably with Sudan’s assets. The illegal gold smuggling has been extensive from Sudan. Often with the help of the infamous paramilitary.
Moreover, I think al-Burhan has lost all dignity, honor and identity.
He is an enemy of God, the Sudanese, and the humanity.
