Africa. Sudan: two months after the coup, the Prime Minister resigns

Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok, the civilian face of the transition in Sudan, announced his resignation on state television on Sunday evening.

His resignation comes more than two months after a coup followed by a crackdown that left 56 people dead in the country.

“I tried my best to prevent the country from sliding towards disaster, while today it is passing through a dangerous turning point which threatens its survival (…) in view of the fragmentation of political forces and conflicts between the components (civilian and military) of the transition (…) Despite everything that has been done to reach a consensus (…) this has not happened ”, he argued in particular in his address to the nation.
