Mama Africa ( Sudan ) : The African Union suspends Sudan’s membership until it chooses a civilian authority to lead the country

The African Union suspended Sudan’s membership immediately untill the country’s administration chooses a transitional civil authority to run the Government .

“This is the only way out of the crisis say AU.

The decision came after Sudanese security forces killed protesters in the capital Khartoum by shooting at them.

The Sudanese Health Ministry said 61 people had died in the violence, including three security forces, stabbed to death, the ministry said.

But the Central Physicians Committee, linked to the opposition protest movement, says more than 100 civilians were killed after security forces shot them.
It said 40 bodies had been found in the waters of the Nile River in Khartoum on Tuesday, but the Sudanese authorities denied that .

Some doctors and nurses are also afraid of going to hospitals to treat the injured.

Militias are everywhere.

Numerous reports from Khartoum said that rapid support forces were roaming the city’s almost deserted streets and targeting civilians.
They were previously known as the Janjawid militia and were accused of atrocities in Darfur in 2003.

Talks between the opposition and the ruling transitional military junta were disbanded earlier this week after a dispute over a plan to hand over the country’s administration to a civilian Government.

What did the military council say in defense of the dismantling of the sit-in?

Vice President of the Sudanese Military Council, Mohammad Hamdan Daglo, defended the sit-in in front of the army headquarters in Khartoum, saying that “the protesters were infiltrated by rogue elements and drug traffickers.”

“We will not allow chaos and we will not go back in our conviction, and the prestige of the state must be imposed by law,” he said.

Leaders of the protest movement in Sudan refused the offer of Transitional Military Council to resume negotiations, saying it could not be trusted after the violence against the protesters.

What are the reasons behind the recent violence?

Sudan has been under the control of the junta since the ouster of President Omar al-Bashir in April 2019 after nearly 30 years of his rule.
