Sudan's Military Council to Be Dissolved in Transition Deal

Sudanese people celebrate in the streets of Khartoum after ruling generals and protest leaders announced they have reached an agreement on the disputed issue of a new governing body on Friday, July 5, 2019. The deal raised hopes it will end a… https://media.voltron.voanews.com/Drupa ... k=79gA894B

KHARTOUM - Sudan's top general says the military council that assumed power after the overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir in April will be dissolved with the implementation of a power-sharing deal reached with protesters last week.

The military and a pro-democracy coalition agreed last week on a joint sovereign council that will rule for a little over three years while elections are organized. Both sides say a diplomatic push by the U.S. and its Arab allies was key to ending a weekslong standoff that raised fears of all-out civil war.

Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan, head of the military council, said in televised comments late Sunday that the army would return to its barracks after 21 months, when leadership of the council passes from a military representative to a civilian.

The council will include five civilians representing the protest movement and five military members. An 11th seat will go to a civilian chosen by both sides. The protesters will select a Cabinet of technocrats, and a legislative council is to be formed after three months.

Burhan also insisted that the military council did not order the violent dispersal of the main protest camp last month, which killed scores of people and led to the collapse of talks.
We trust that military council members had nothing to do with what happened in the sit-in dispersal,
he said.

As part of the power-sharing agreement, the two sides agreed on an independent Sudanese investigation into the deadly crackdown, but the details have yet to be worked out.

Sudanese security forces razed the sit-in outside the military headquarters in Khartoum on June 3. The deadly clampdown killed at least 128 people, according to protest organizers. Authorities put the death toll at 61, including three security forces.

On June 30, the protesters returned to the streets by the tens of thousands to again demand a transition to civilian rule. The rallies were the largest since the uprising began in December.

I agree; freeze their assets. Seize them and give them back to where they belong; Ethiopians.
Imagine, the billions that they solve, imagine if they were invested in the people?
We could've made a lot more progress against poverty if that were the case!

It's sad, indeed.

Voices critical of PM Abiy persists in Ethiopia's Tigray region

13 hours ago

Ethiopia

https://www.africanews.com/2019/07/10/v ... ay-region/

Voices critical of Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed still persists across much of the far northern Tigray regional state.

These sentiments have been heightened recently on the back of the killings of five high-ranking government and military officials — the two military generals killed in Addis Ababa were Tigrayans.

The official government account said the June 22 deadly incidents was part of a coup attempt in Amhara regional state, neighbouring Tigray.

The incidents in Amhara capital Bahir Dar were connected to the shooting of Army Chief Seare Mekonnen and a retired general who was working with him to thwart the Amhara ‘coup,’ the PM’s office said.

Reports from the Tigray regional capital Mekelle, indicates that the Tigrayans believe that Abiy Ahmed has made them scapegoats for all Ethiopia’s problems.

A reggae singer Solomon Yikunoamlak who rose to fame singing love songs, says he expects that his songs will will resonate with Tigrayan listeners who have witnessed their authority fade under Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s leadership.

Nebiyu Sihul Mikael, an author and social media activist said:
There is strong opposition against the federal government and some of the country’s political forces. So there is a lot of frustration and mistrust, political mistrust.
Since coming to power last year, the 42-year-old Abiy has loosened security and business-sector controls and shaken up decades-old power arrangements, angering some Tigrayans who feel sidelined.
It’s very sad. Not only are they questioning the intentions of the reform, but they have even begun to wonder whether or not they belong to the country they have worked for, sacrificing a lot to maintain and democratize,
another critic Wondium Asamnew said.

Monkey see Monkey do.

Trying to duplicate what ever Weyannie invented.

Some tactics have expiry date.

You better ask your Arab masters. America now has no time to deal with trivial issues from some African chief's.

Isayas maybe larger than life for you, but is a no body for America now. If at all America gets involved will be at level of Yamamoto and likes of him.

You were sanctioned by Russia, China as well not just America.

You should know that no matter how much you dance or leak Arab Sandals, your Arab masters cannot make China Sanction Meqelle or Russia sanction Axum.

Ethiopia's TPLF demands clarity on 2020 elections, blasts ADP over 'coup'

Daniel Mumbere

https://www.africanews.com/2019/07/11/e ... over-coup/

July 11, 2019

Ethiopia

All is not well in Ethiopia’s ruling coalition as one of the parties is accusing the Amhara Democratic Party (ADP) of not doing enough to prevent the recent high profile assassinations that have been officially described as an ‘attempted coup’.

The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) issued a statement on Thursday, in which it said the ADP has worked with ‘chauvinist forces’ and compromised the security of the region.
At the moment, the unity of the nation is endangered by chauvinist forces from here and there. The ADP has been a fertile ground for this,
the statement reads.

Otherwise, it will be difficult for the TPLF to further continue working together and struggle with ADP.

The ADP, TPLF, prime minister Abiy Ahmed’s Oromo Democratic Party (ODP) and the Southern Ethiopian People’s Democratic Movement (SEPDM) are governing members of the Ethiopia People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF).

Why is TPLF angry?

The TPLF, which was once seen as the dominant party in the ruling coalition has seen its influence wane since Abiy who is from the majority Oromo ethnic group, took over as prime minister last year.

In its accusations against ADP, the TPLF was referring to last month’s killing of the Amhara regional president Ambachew Mekonen, and two other officials, who were members of the ADP.

The army chief of staff, General Seare Mekonnen, along with another retired general were also killed in the Ethiopian capital. Both generals were from the Tigray region.

The alleged brains behind the attacks, Brig Gen Asaminew Tsige, was also a member of the ADP, and has since been killed.
The ADP has to look into its fragile internal situation, assess the killings of officials and make a public apology accordingly.

Otherwise, it will be difficult for the TPLF to further continue working together and struggle with ADP,
the statement warned.

The TPLF has consequently called for an independent investigation into the June 22 investigations.

The party has also demanded for a clear position from the federal government concerning the 2020 national elections.

TPLF and terrorism are synonymous in HOA in general and in Ethiopia in particular. These looters are now hunkered in their burrow in Mekele and spewing their venom as always. Starve the angry beast to death and, it eventually will succumb to its rightful place. They will cry and chest pump until the resources which have been borrowed in the name of the country and stashed in their homeland is exhausted.
