Sudan State of Emergency

in sudan •  last month


Early Thursday, the Sudan Military led a coup against the country's 75-year-old president Omar al-Bashir in a lightning fast move. This coup involved barely any violence or gunfire. The Sudanese army issued the country into a state of emergency for the next 3 months and they will be led by a Military Council to rule for the next 2 years. Zerohedge provides the following pieces of information:

It's widely believed, though unconfirmed, that the country's Defense Minister Brigadier General Awad Mohamed Ahmed Ibn Auf, who was appointed as Sudan's first vice president last February and acting Defense minister, was the one ultimately behind Bashir's removal.

The Sudanese Defense Minister also confirmed that al-Bashir was in a "safe location" and that the state of emergency would include a one-month curfew, the closure of airspace, ports and crossings in Sudan, and the dissolving of the presidency and cabinet, according to a translation of the remarks by Middle East news source Al-Masdar.


This kind of move shows how intense things could get, anywhere in the world. Could this push other nations to do the same with their leaders? Will it be a case of monkey see monkey do? It certainly has opened up an interesting period of time for Sudan. Please leave your comments in the replies section below.

Have a very nice day!
