Sometimes it remains unbelievable for one to imagine that a man who wielded a lot of power and had military prowess to be ousted by the citizens.
Yet the citizens have a greater power that is more than the guns. The citizens of Sudan suffered, were killed by the army but they relentlessly continued with their ambition to oust their leader who ruled the country for three decades.
Now President Omar Al-Bashir, 75, has today April 11 been ousted by the protestors after the army sided with them. He was born on January 1, 1944.
While announcing the ousting of the President, the Defense Minister Awad Ibn Ouf said the army has taken over the state of the affairs and would lead a two-year transition of power.
“A three-month state of emergency was being put in place.”
He studied at Sudan Military Academy (1966) and Egyptian Military Academy.
For about six months of protests over the weakening economy, arrest of opposition party leaders, journalists and week governance, the Sudanese had to rise up against the regime. Bashir came to power in 1989.
Bashir has been accused of crime against humanity especially in his country Sudan and before the independence of South Sudan, which has up to now been embroiled in conflicts.
Already, as a process of new governance, the body points are now closed and the Constitution has been suspended hence paving way for state of emergency.
