Evaluation by Emmanuel Igunza, BBC Information
January 1 marked Sudan’s Independence Day yet there’s little to commemorate in the nation at the moment.
The resignation of PM Abdalla Hamdok is a big impact on the military leaders who had believed a contract with Mr. Hamdok would calm protesters as well as legitimize their remain in power.
Plainly those estimations were incorrect. It suggests the military is currently strongly in power, reversing gains made as the nation tried to return to noncombatant policy.
The present political crisis currently intimidates to return Sudan to the authoritarian years of former ousted leader Omar al-Bashir.
And there’s also the danger that the country can go back to being a pariah state with the similarity the US currently showing that they would sanction those restraining a return to civilian policy.
Offered Sudan’s economic battles, which can have an even worse effect on the lives of Sudanese people.
