Sudan’s president Omer Al-Bashir has reportedly held a meeting described as “candid” with detained leaders of an alleged coup attempt against his government as his senior aide Nafe Ali Nafe rejected calls for releasing them saying they must be tried for conspiring against the regime.
Intelligence authorities announced on 22 November that they arrested 13 individuals, including the former director of the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) Salah Gosh and Brigadier General Mohamed Ibrahim Abdel-Galil known as “Wad Ibrahim” from the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF), against the background of plotting a coup to overthrow the government.
The coup has been linked to disenfranchised elements within Al-Bashir’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) and the wider Islamist establishment that underpins it, particularly to a group of erstwhile Mujahdeen known as Al-Sa’heoon who formed the core of paramilitary forces fighting the “holy” war against South Sudan...
Will Sudan surrender to "Civilians" or keep the tradition..?
Currently it is the hidden battle between NCP Militry and Civilian wings.. Whatsoever the results; it will not change the political course, but maybe will enhance controls and growth.. as a-must tools for NCP (or Sudanese-Islamists) hopeful long-life..
My comment is "ivory" without any engagements, even from my own self..!!
