Sudanese military vows not to attack protesters. This announcement comes after protesters demand that the country returns to civil rule. The military agrees to relinquish power when the civil groups come to a concensus on who rules the nation
Lieutenant General Shamseddine Kabbashi, spokesman of the ruling military council, told this to reporters after a meeting between the Council and the Alliance for Freedom and Change. The spokesman did not elaborate on the demands.
The alliance has been demanding that the Council hand over power to a civilian administration.
Sudanese marchers have converged from all directions on army headquarters for a “million-strong” demonstration to turn up the heat on the junta rulers.
Witnesses said marchers were closing in on the main protest site from different directions in the capital Khartoum on Thursday.
Across the city, demonstrators arrived at the army headquarters from the states of Jazeera, White Nile and also from Shendi, increasing the numbers already camped at the site, many of them for the past several weeks.
Sudanese judges from the Supreme Court also joined the protests for the first time.
“We are here to give a message that the judiciary should be independent without any political intervention,” media outlets quoted a judge as saying.
Crowds of protesters also gathered outside Egypt’s embassy and consulate, which were surrounded by riot police.
They held banners calling on Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi not to “interfere in our affairs”, after Cairo hosted a summit of African leaders calling for more time for a transition to civilian rule in Sudan.
The Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA), which led the protests against deposed President Omar al-Bashir, says the march calls for “civilian rule” in the country.
