African Union Suspends Sudan Until Soldiers Hand Over Power To Civilians
The African Union (AU) has with immediate effect, suspended Sudan from the organisation. In a statement, the continental body said:
The African Union Peace and Security Council has with immediate effect suspended the participation of the Republic of Sudan in all AU activities until the effective establishment of a Civilian-led Transitional Authority, as the only way to allow Sudan to exit from the current crisis.
This follows a popular military coup last month which led to the ouster of long-time strongman Omar al Bashir.
The soldiers have, however, dithered in negotiations with protest leaders to hand over power to a civilian Transitional Authority.
The situation in Sudan further deteriorated on Monday this week after the ruling military council attempted to force protestors off the streets.
