After 30 Years Rule, Sudan’s President Omar Al-Bashir Steps Down
Reports have confirmed that Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir has stepped down after three decades of iron rule.
EGH News has reported that the Sudanese army are set to take over the country, who will lead a new transitional High Council of Armed forces.
This follows reports that the Sudanese army was Thursday planning to make “an important announcement”, state media said, after weeks of protests against al-Bashir’s rule.
“The Sudanese army will issue an important statement soon. Wait for it,” a television anchor said, without giving further details.
Reports had filtered in that there was a possible military coup in Sudan, and that al-Bashir was on the verge of stepping down.
Mumtaz News and Al Arabiya reported on Thursday morning that in addition to the above developments, Khartoum Airport had been closed, the military had taken over national TV and radio, and a number of top leaders had been arrested as army chiefs held a meeting.
