Al-Bashir assumed the presidential post in a 1989 coup. The people of the country can’t continue to bear the extreme poverty that has been ravaging the nation but he insisted not to leave the power until 2020 when an election could serve as a means he could be unseated.
Sudan, being the rs Africa third largest country has been ruled by Al-Bashir for complete 30 years in which he was still stubborn not to step down and which has brought about an uprising protest. The Sudanese Professionals Association call for the demonstration to unseat the current leader as to celebrate the 1985 insurgency that has led to the President Gafaar Nimeiry being overthrown. The gunfire started on Thursday at military headquarters.
They initially went through a strike led by Sudanese Professionals Association, in March 2019 in order to weaken Al-Bashir and expected him to resign, yet he still insists on being unseated through an election in 2020. However people can’t bear it anymore which has led to the outcry across the nation.
