 Sudan PM replaces military-appointed state governors

Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has replaced all the acting state governors who were appointed by the country’s military leader following a coup in October.

Mr Hamdok was returned to his post less than a month after being ousted, under a deal with the coup leader, Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.

The prime minister also recently replaced several ministers who had been appointed by the military – some were closely linked to the former oppressive ruler, President Omar al-Bashir.

Many Sudanese are extremely angry that the military is still playing a role in the country’s political scene and more protests are expected on Monday.
