🇸🇩 What's keeping Sudan's president in power? | Inside Story



Anger at the high price of bread and fuel sparked mass protests in Sudan last December.
Four months on, the rallies have evolved into demands for an end to the 30 year rule of President Omar Al Bashir.
For the first time, protesters got as far as army headquarters in Khartoum, where the president has a home.
Some soldiers stepped in to protect demonstrators against tear gas from riot police and intelligence service agents.
However, army commanders have so far resisted calls to help remove Bashir.
So what’s keeping the president in power?

Presenter: Martine Dennis

Guests:
Khalid Omer Yousif – Secretary General of the opposition Sudanese Congress Party.
Jean-Baptiste Gallopin – Sudan researcher and PhD candidate at Yale University.
David Shinn – Former Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. embassy in Sudan.

  7. Saudi Arabia.Qatar, and China are the principal supporter of Albashir. Qatar and China in particular have substantial investment in the country. The future of these investments are in doubt if Al- Bashir and his regime falls.
